SAN JOSE, Calif. (Dec. 14, 2016) Acer today announced its new TravelMate P4 series commercial notebooks are available in the United States.

Thanks to Windows 10 Pro and multiple methods of data protection, including an integrated touch fingerprint reader and smart card reader, the durable, travel-friendly laptops let professionals work securely in and out of the office.

“Our newest TravelMate series will suit business travelers and those wanting a practical portable computer for use at the office, home and on the go,” said Steve Su, Acer America business manager, mobility. “They’re powerful, secure and user-friendly with the ability to recline flat, while a backlit keyboard enables professionals to work in low-light environments.”

Up to 0.8 inches thin, the Acer TravelMate P4 notebooks are slim and offer a choice of 14- or 15-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) or HD (1366×768) displays and a touch screen option to meet a range of needs and budgets. The LED-backlit displays leverage ComfyView anti-glare technology to help decrease eye fatigue. Select models feature IPS panels for superb wide angle viewing, ideal for collaborating with others.

Enhancing usability, the new notebooks recline 180 degrees to lie fully flat for sharing content off-site with clients, partners and vendors or small meetings with associates at the office. They also feature a LED backlit keyboard for working in low-light situations on airplanes, trains or late nights at home. A chiclet-style keyboard delivers superb tactile feedback for accurate touch-typing, and a wide Precision Touchpad provides comfortable and responsive navigation.

The Acer TravelMate P4 notebooks feature 6th Generation IntelÆ Core processors, up to 8GB DDR4 memory, up to 256GB SSDs3 for excellent performance and battery life up to 8 hours1 to promote productivity while traveling or working off-site. For users who regularly host meetings outside the office, the Acer TravelMate P4 series has fine-tuned speakers and microphones for crisp and lag-free communication and a 720p HDR webcam for clear videoconferencing. In addition to a card reader and HDMI, a super-fast USB Type-C port pairs with an optional Acer USB Type-C Dock (sold separately) to connect up to two 4K displays for easy plug and play docking, while delivering power, speed and a host of connectivity options via a single cable.
