Fresh off their Computex 2023 reveal of consumer-oriented tech, Acer has revealed their latest line-up of TravelMate and Veriton laptops, desktops and monitors intended for enterprise use in Malaysia. Among the diverse range of new commercial devices is the new Acer TravelMate P2, P4 and P6 series laptops, all of which are available in Malaysia for consideration for corporate use.
Unlike standard issue devices meant for consumers, Acer’s Travelmate series devices have baked in hardware, firmware and OS protection along with the use of commercial bios, Acer office manager and Windows Autopilot across the board to secure these devices from tampering as well as ensuring that they are easy to manage and deploy in a corporate environment.
All new TravelMate series laptops including the aforementioned P2, P4 and P6 have an upgraded Dust Defender fan that is able to not only cool the laptop but also spin counterclockwise to blow dust out of the internal chassis. Here’s how these corporate rigs stack up in terms of price and specifications…
