Acer America has announced the TravelMate P645 Series commercial ultrabooks that deliver longer battery life and improved performance as well as new reliability features that will keep customers working longer and more effectively. The Ultrabook features an 14" IPS 1920 x 1080 display, Intel Haswell CPU, AMD Radeon graphics and a fingerprint scanner. Here's more info on this new TravelMate P645 Ultrabook from Acer:
The new Acer TravelMate P645 features 4th generation Intel Core processors with longer battery life. It features a high strength carbon fiber lid that contributes to the lightweight design that weighs only 3.31 pounds and measures just 0.81 inches thin. Plus, the Magnesium-Aluminum palm rest and bottom cover withstand extreme pressure and protect the system from drops. The cooling fan ensures the ultrabook runs at a comfortable and reliable temperature, while the integrated Dust Defender clears out dust from the cooling system for improved reliability.
The TravelMate P645's 14-inch display is offered in two different resolutions. The full HD high 1920x1080 resolution model uses IPS technology and is supported by dedicated AMD Radeon HD 8750M graphics with 2GB DDR3 VRAM. In addition, the HD 1366x768 resolution model uses Intel HD graphics 5000/400. Both displays are LED-backlit and deliver accurate color and consistent images that are crisp and clear while providing wide viewing angles of up to 170 degrees for comfortable viewing and sharing. The ComfyView anti-glare technology enhances the view in a range of settings. Plus, the TravelMate P645 line supports up to two additional displays.
The full-sized Chiclet keyboard provides a comfortable 1.4mm travel distance to ensure productivity, and has a spill-resistant design to protect it from accidents. In addition, the keyboard is LED-backlit, so Acer customers can see the keys even in dimly-lit environments, such as on a plane or while taking notes during a presentation or conference.
The TravelMate P645 has the option for the Acer ProDock that comes with all the ports executives need in an ergonomic design for a quick and easy connection and tangle-free cable management, including USB 3.0, USB 2.0, Display port, DVI, HDMI, and VGA.
Corporate and commercial customers can connect their Acer TravelMate P645 via Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth. The ultrabook line comes with Near Field Communication (NFC) support and an application to scan business cards and additional information with other devices. The Acer TravelMate P645 is optimized for high quality conference calls with innovative features including a high-def 720p webcam, dual microphones, convenient mute key, high definition audio, and Acer's new "Purified.Voice," which enhances voice sound and reduces background noise and keystrokes while conducting video conferences, VoIP or voice recognition.
Premium Security and Manageability A wide range of security features protect companies' investment in the Acer TravelMate P645. Acer ProShield Manager, a suite of essential security and manageability tools, integrates key features and prevents unauthorized access while safeguarding valuable assets and data. Acer ProShield features pre-boot authentication and protects the ultrabook from the BIOS level all the way to the application level. Users can create a Personal Secure Drive (PSD) to seamlessly store and encrypt all critical files, ensuring that if the Acer TravelMate P645 is lost or stolen, the data cannot be accessed. Finally, it offers the automated solution to manage IT assets remotely.
The TravelMate P645 also provides the option for an integrated biometric fingerprint reader paired with a Trusted Platform Module 1.2 reader to secure the system from unauthorized access. Customers can even utilize the new face login feature, which captures and verifies the login image compared to that in the database. Via the Kensington lock, the ultrabook can be secured to a desk.
The TravelMate P645 Series is an IT department's dream client. It comes with Acer Office Manager (AOM), a manageability solution, which allows IT managers to deploy security policies, monitor IT assets, and schedule maintenance tasks in one simple application. Intel vPro with Active Management Technology 9.0 allows the IT department to manage software and hardware computing assets within an organization. Manageability lowers the total cost of ownership by allowing IT professionals to easily service and upgrade many of the internal components.
The TravelMate P645 ultrabook line provides enhanced performance with up to 12GB of DDR3 memory. Also, the line provides faster boot times and ample storage space with a solid state drive (SSD) up to 256GB in capacity. The Acer TravelMate P645 ultrabook line will be available to customers with Windows 8.1, Windows 8 Pro 64-bit, Windows 8 64-bit, and Windows 7.
