Acer Launches New TravelMate X3410 Series At CES 2019
Near Perfect Travel Companion With 15-hour Battery & Lightweight Design
With the world long having moved on from stationary workstations, the need to be constantly on the run is paramount for modern-day professionals. A high-performing laptop that understands this well is Acer’s latest launch—the TravelMate X3410 Series. Powered by an eighth-gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and 512GB of storage space, this mini powerhouse weighs only 3.5lbs but packs in stellar features that make it an exceptional traveler. Especially noteworthy are its 15-hour battery backup, sleek profile of 0.8”, and backlit keyboard with 1.3mm-key-travel-distance for effortless typing.
The TravelMate X3410 Series clearly has its eye on working professionals who need a productive, collaborative but secure device that can travel well. To this end, it has a durable aluminum chassis and a compact 14” screen—a construction that is lightweight yet sturdy enough to move about with you without a sweat.
A Processor That Understands Business Needs
While the Intel i7 processor is competent enough to handle day-to-day needs and demanding business requirements with equal élan, the battery backup of this device is an even more significant victory. On a single charge, the battery lasts for 15 hours. This is ample not only for the workday but also a lot more—something that comes in handy for medium and small business owners who may be meeting clients or hitting the road for long hours every day (and night).
Built Like a Fortress
Security isn’t something professionals can toy with, and neither can any device they use for work. The TravelMate is made to understand that travel comes with an inherent set of risks to data—a threat that it counters with a TPM 2.0 chip (Trusted Platform Module) for hardware-based protection. The laptop also boasts of a fingerprint reader in connection with Windows Hello, Acer ProShield, and Acer Office Management. The latter two let professionals utilize tools for monitoring and managing data securely.
Clear, Travel-Friendly Display & Sound
When you are out on the road, the need to see things as they are gets more pronounced. Acer has fitted this machine with a full High-Definition display with an optimal screen resolution of 1920 x 1080. The screen supports In-Plane Switching to let users collaborate with colleagues from various viewing angles. Of course, if the need of the hour is a larger-than-life presentation, it is possible to use an Acer USB Type-C Dock to connect up to three external displays (4K). Note that the dock needs to be purchased separately.
In terms of auditory support too, this laptop fares well with fine-tuned speakers. The sound is distortion-free while issuing commands on the digital assistant (Cortana) or video-conferencing through the 720p HD webcam.
Easy Access and Navigation
The TravelMate X3410 is built with a chiclet keyboard that resonates with portability, or the overall mood of the machine. With an ergonomic key-spacing and LED-backlighting, this keyboard lets users work in all kinds of physical settings and ambient lighting (or lack thereof). The touchpad, interestingly, has 27 percent more surface area than in older X3 generations. It is also incredibly precise and comfortable to use.
Traveling for work is no longer a choice; it has become essential for contemporary, high-flying business professionals. The TravelMate X3410 Series laptop targets this audience and how. This latest launch promises a portable design, superior performance and graphics, and excellent provisions for data security, protection, and organizational management.
