This 14-inch model aims to offer business professionals a lightweight, powerful, and secure notebook without breaking the bank. By Matt Whitlock

Conclusion

As of this writing, a premium ultraportable from the big three OEMs will run a 10th Gen i5 or 8th Gen i7, have less storage, and perhaps less RAM at $1,399. For Acer to hit that price with those specs, it had to save a bit in other areas. Fortunately, everywhere it’s done so it has been thoughtful, and not hurt the overall package. For example, the display isn’t the greatest, but it’s not bad either. While the Acer TravelMate P6 isn’t the most premium ultraportable out there, it hits a lot of high notes, inside and out, at a very good price.
