Stealing a march on other exhibitors ahead of next week's Consumer Electronics Show, Acer has announced its new TravelMate X3410 thin and light commercial notebook series for small and medium businesses. Optimized for productivity, security, and reliability, the 14-inch TravelMate X3410 is designed for professionals who want a sleek yet powerful device for multitasking and heavy workloads that can also withstand the rigors of frequent travel.
Enclosed in a chassis with an aluminum bottom and keyboard covers, Acer’s TravelMate X3410 weighs just 3.5 pounds (1.6 kg) and measures under 0.8 inches (20 mm) thin. It provides up to 15 hours of battery life to support productivity on the go, and features up to 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processors, up to 16GB DDR4 memory, and up to 512GB SSDs for improved performance. The device ships with Windows 10 Pro.
Supporting Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080) with IPS technology, the TravelMate X3410’s 14-inch display is engineered to offer clear viewing of documents, video, and webpages, even at wide angles. The chiclet-style keyboard with 1.3mm key travel is meant to ensure comfortable typing with excellent tactile feedback. It’s also LED backlit, enabling business travelers to stay productive in low-light situations such as airplanes and commuter trains. A wide Precision Touchpad is optimized to provide comfortable and responsive navigation and 27 percent more surface space than prior X3 generations.
Professionals who interface with offsite vendors and partners can utilize the 720p HD webcam, built-in speakers, and microphone to conduct videoconferencing. For quick plug-and-play docking, the TravelMate X3410 has a USB Type-C port for pairing with an Acer USB Type-C Dock (sold separately) that can accommodate up to three 4K displays.
To ensure security for business travelers, the TravelMate X3410 features an embedded fingerprint reader, integrated into the power button, that works with Windows Hello for fast and secure sign-in without a password. A Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 chip provides hardware-based protection for passwords and encryption keys. The system is also preloaded with Acer ProShield, a suite of security and management tools designed to safeguard sensitive data, and Acer Office Management, which allows IT professionals to deploy security policies and monitor assets from one easy-to-use interface. A detachable service door helps simplify upgrades.
Acer TravelMate X3410 series notebooks are available in the United States with a one-year international traveler’s warranty, which runs concurrently with the standard one year parts and labor limited warranty. This traveler’s warranty is valid in more than 30 countries where Acer has authorized repair facilities. Prices for the Acer TravelMate X3410 start at $899.99 for an Intel Core i3/8GB DDR4 RAM/128GB SSD model.
