    Acer introduced two new premium Acer Chromebook lines, the Acer Chromebook 715 and Acer Chromebook 714, designed to help employees work in the cloud more securely and efficiently. Both new Acer Chromebooks have a premium all-aluminum chassis that delivers military-grade (U.S. MIL-STD 810G[1]) durability, as well as an integrated fingerprint reader, and Citrix Ready Certification.


    In addition, both new Acer Chromebooks give cloud workers the productivity-boosting features that will help them work more efficiently, including Full HD displays and up to 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors for exceptional mobile performance, and up to 12 hours of battery life[2].

    “The addition of a premium durable chassis and integrated fingerprint reader onto the latest Acer Chromebooks enhances the security and reliability of these devices,” said James Lin, General Manager, Notebooks, IT Product Business, Acer Inc. “Employees of all types — whether in a corporate office, small business, or an educational setting — need reliable, powerful PCs that help protect their data, perform well, and look great. These new Acer Chromebooks fit that bill.”

    Premium Protection: Durable Aluminum Design, Fingerprint Reader

    The new Acer Chromebook 715 and Acer Chromebook 714 both feature a durable, all-aluminum, impact-resistant chassis that looks great on a front desk for customer-facing settings, as well as on the road with employees making client visits or sales calls. The reinforced design delivers military-grade protection (U.S. MIL-STD 810G compliant[1]) so it can handle drops from up to 48 inches (122 cm) and can withstand up to 132 pounds (60 kg) of downward force. The anodized aluminum chassis stands up to daily wear and tear, resists dents and bending, and wards off dings, chips and corrosion to maintain the high-end look and feel.


    The Corning® Gorilla® Glass touchpad allows smooth navigation through apps, websites and projects. Plus, the touchpad features click-anywhere functionality and is also scratch- and moisture-resistant.


    For further protection, the Acer Chromebook 715 and Acer Chromebook 714 feature an integrated fingerprint reader conveniently placed next to the keyboard. Ideal for shared environments, the fingerprint reader gives employees a quick and secure way to unlock the device and share with co-workers.


    Citrix Ready certified, the new Acer Chromebooks are fully compatible with Citrix solutions that enhance business mobility, networking, and cloud platforms.


    Acer Chromebook 715 – The First Chromebook with a Numeric Keypad for Easy Input

    The new Acer Chromebook 715 is the first Acer Chromebook on the market to include a dedicated numeric keypad. The large display provides ample room for the keypad, which gives cloud workers in retail, finance, and service fields — as well as in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) — an efficient way to input data. In addition, the Acer Chromebook 715 has a backlit keyboard so productivity can continue in low-light conditions.

    The 15.6-inch IPS[3] display allows viewing of multiple apps and tabs in vibrant Full HD 1920x1080 resolution. The Acer Chromebook 715 comes in both touch-screen and standard display options.


    Acer Chromebook 714 Features 14-inch Narrow-Bezel Display

    Employees working remotely will appreciate the Acer Chromebook 714’s compact design and immersive 14-inch Full HD display. The slim bezels measure as little as 6.18 mm (0.24 inches) to reduce the overall footprint and keep the focus on the clear and vibrant visuals. Like the Acer Chromebook 715, the Acer Chromebook 714 has IPS[3] technology and comes in touch-screen and standard non-touch options.


    All-Day Battery Life and Enhanced Performance

    The new Acer Chromebook 715 and Acer Chromebook 714 deliver industry-leading battery[2] life of up to 12 hours, so they can be used for a full day of productivity on the road or in customer-facing environments. Both can be powered by a range of processors, including the 8th Gen Intel Core i5 and Core i3 processors as well as Intel® Celeron® and Intel® Pentium® Gold options.

    Staying Connected

    The new Acer Chromebooks have a USB 3.1 Type-C port on each side so they can be connected to devices and charged from the side that’s most convenient. The ports can be used for quick data transfers, connecting to an external display, and for charging other devices. Both new Acer Chromebooks also have a USB 3.0 port and a MicroSD card reader.

    The Acer Chromebook 715 and Acer Chromebook 714 provide fast and reliable Dual Band Wireless-AC 802.11ac/a/b/g/n 2x2, while Bluetooth 4.2 delivers a convenient connection to peripherals.

    The optional Acer USB-Type-C Dock can be connected via a single cable to the new Acer Chromebook 715 and 714, easily transforming them into powerful workstations that can connect to external displays, printers, and more. This convenient and compact dock enables high-speed video, audio, and data transfers, and keeps the front desk or work area clutter-free.

    Chrome OS Speed, Simplicity, and Security

    The new Acer Chromebooks work well with Google’s Chrome Enterprise solution that helps businesses manage devices at scale. Ideal for a range of business environments including those where employees share devices and are mobile — such as in health care and retail — Chrome Enterprise helps create a secure and productive environment for cloud-based workers.


    IT departments will appreciate the comprehensive, integrated security coverage that is part of Chrome Enterprise. IT administrators will find it easy to control updates, configure apps, utilize extensions and policies, and more with web-based management[4] that makes the new Acer Chromebooks easy to deploy and manage increasing their uptime and reducing their total cost of ownership (TCO).


    Customers will have access to the latest Chrome apps and millions of Android apps for productivity, connectivity, services, and more. Both the new Acer Chromebook 715 and Acer Chromebook 714 fully support Android apps via Google Play.


    The new Acer Chromebooks are not only easy to use, but also easy to share among employees, students, and others. Logging onto a Google account allows access to Gmail, Google Docs, apps, extensions, bookmarks, and more. Chromebooks run on Google’s Chrome OS platform, which automatically updates and uses multiple levels of security to guard against ever-changing online threats.

    Introducing the latest addition to its iconic TravelMate P6 series, a thin, light, and durable commercial Windows 10 Pro notebook series built for professionals that travel frequently or work in the field. Robust and powerful with up to 20 hours[1] of battery life, it’s built to withstand life on the road and support heavy workloads.

    The Acer TravelMate P614-51 sports a premium quality magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis that is stronger and lighter than standard aluminum alloys at the same thickness. It also gives the laptop a sleek and modern aesthetic. Weighing just 2.4 pounds (1.1 kg) and measuring only 0.6 inches (16.6 mm), it’s easy to take on the road. With up to 20 hours[1] of battery life, professionals can stay productive on transcontinental flights or work through two full days on the go without having to recharge. This high-performance notebook can also be charged up to 50 percent in less than 45 minutes.


    Powerful, the new Windows 10 Pro notebooks are packed with up to 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processors, up to 24GB DDR4 memory, up to NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250 graphics[3], and up to 1TB of responsive Gen 3 x4 PCIe SSD using NVMe technology for speeding through editing large spreadsheets, and creating presentations. The TravelMate P614-51 makes sharing and collaborating easy with a 180-degree hinge design, enabling it to lay flat for sharing the display with others.

    “We’re excited to bring our professional customers a thinner and lighter version of our popular Acer TravelMate P6 series with an exceptionally long battery life,” said James Lin, General Manager, Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. “We’re confident they’ll appreciate the ability to work for two days without having to recharge, in addition to the notebook’s even more durable chassis and enhanced security.”
    "Acer's new TravelMate is built tough and packed with powerful security features," said Mark Linton, General Manager, Consumer and Device Sales, Microsoft Corp. "The TravelMate also combines durability and portability with its lightweight design, long battery life, and impressive processing power that is sure to appeal to a wide range of customers."

    The TravelMate P614-51’s 14-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS[4] display delivers accurate color with 170-degree wide viewing angles. Full-sized and back-lit, the keyboard provides comfortable typing and enables travelers to work in low-light areas, such as in airplane cabins and on trains. A damage-resistant, ultra-responsive Corning® Gorilla® Glass NBT™ touchpad enables precise gesture controls and swiping. Compared to traditional mylar, Corning Gorilla Glass is tougher, more resistant to scratches, and easier to clean.


    Skype for Business-certified, the TravelMate P614-51 delivers crystal-clear videoconferencing via a four-mic array that picks up vocals from up to 6.5 feet away. Users can use the Cortana personal digital assistant to send voice commands for staying organized, playing music and managing the home remotely.

    Built Tough

    The TravelMate P614-51 is designed to handle the bumps and bangs of airport security checks, accidental drops, and other mishaps. It complies with MIL-STD 810G2, 810F, a set of U.S. military grade standards that define the durability of a wide range of products. The testing follows stringent procedures such as a drop test involving 26 drops from a height of approximately 48 inches (122 cm) on various parts of the frame — landing on 2 inches of plywood placed on concrete. Other tests check the laptop’s resistance to rain, humidity, and extreme temperatures.


    Solid Security

    In addition to keeping data safe, companies want devices that are easy to deploy and manage remotely. Outfitted with Windows 10 Pro, the TravelMate P614-51 offers powerful security features to safeguard data. Customers can log in using Windows Hello with the fingerprint reader via the power button, or through the IR webcam that leverages biometric facial recognition. Both methods eliminate having to remember and use a password. When the webcam isn’t in use, the camera shutter can be closed for additional security. An integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 chip delivers hardware-based protection for passwords and encryption keys. The pre-loaded Acer ProShield includes a suite of security and management tools that help safeguard sensitive data, while Acer Office Management lets IT professionals deploy security policies and monitor assets from one interface. Available as an option on select models, Intel® vPro™ tightens security with another layer of protection, while saving time and money with efficient remote management capabilities.

    Full Coverage Connectivity

    Professionals can maintain a reliable, high-speed wireless connection with eSim-enabled[5] 4G LTE and 802.11ac 2x2 MU-MIMO technology. Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3 delivers blazing-fast data transfers up to 40Gbs to USB Type-C-connected devices. Customers can connect a cable from the USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port to a Thunderbolt 3-enabled device and get four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other port type while also supplying power and support for up to 8K displays. Other ports include MicroSD card and smart card readers[6], and NFC[4] (Near Field Communication) for sharing content or making mobile payments.


    An optional Acer USB Type-C Dock II expands workspace via a USB Type-C port and meets productivity needs for 4K UHD video, data, and wired network while delivering stable power to the notebook. This dock also provides USB 3.1 Type A and Type C, DisplayPort, HDMI, audio in/out options and support for up to three 4K displays.

    Pricing and Availability

    The Acer TravelMate P614-51 will be available in North America in July, starting at USD 1,149.99, in EMEA in June, starting at EUR 1,249.00; and in China in May, starting at RMB 9,999.
