The TravelMate B114-21 offers up to a 256GB dual-lane PCIe NVMe SSD or up to 64GB of eMMC flash memory, and provides up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge. The device’s large FHD screen gives students the space they need for a wider perspective as they learn. The laptop’s 180-degree hinge can lie flat as well for content sharing and easy collaboration with classmates.

The TravelMate B114-21 is designed with a rubber bumper and an impact-resistant body that's designed to handle everything a hectic school day can throw at it. Compliant with the MIL-STD 810G military standard, it's engineered to survive extreme temperatures, bad weather, drops from up to 122 cm, and bumps and knocks, as well as crowds of children.

To ensure reliable connectivity for connected learning, the TravelMate B114-21 comes with 802.11ac wireless and an RJ-45 Ethernet port, as well as multiple options for connecting with peripherals such as screens, TVs, and projectors. It also has a full selection of ports, including 1x HDMI, 1x USB 3.1 Gen1, 2x USB 2.0 and an SD card reader.

The TravelMate B114-21 is part of Acer’s TravelMate line of notebook PCs, which includes the TravelMate B118 and the convertible TravelMate Spin B1, both released last year.

The TravelMate B114-21 will be available to education and commercial customers in Q2 2019. Exact specifications, prices, and availability will vary by region.
