Acer announces the TravelMate P243 notebook

Designed to meet the needs of SMB and SOHO for multi-task processing performance, efficiency and reliability, Acer has announced their new TravelMate P243 notebook that adds to the mix - a pleasant, yet practical design. All details have been fine-tuned by Acer to offer the optimal user experience whether at home or on-the-go. The new TravelMate P243 series takes advantage of the third generation Intel Core processor with Intel Turbo Boost Technology ensuring smart performance that adapts to users' needs, giving a significantly faster performance to speed through demanding tasks and boost productivity, while saving energy. In addition, these processors provide built-in capabilities for enhanced multimedia creation and enjoyment. 

Business activities are increasingly reliant on graphics and multimedia. As a result, Acer engineered the new TravelMate models to deliver a visual performance for sharper images and richer colour, along with enabling high-definition video and audio playback. According to the model, these notebooks are available with NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M, which provide graphics capability and balance of performance on demand, while supporting Microsoft DirectX 11.

The TravelMate P243 features robust security solutions. It comes with Acer ProShield Security, a suite of security and manageability tools integrated in a unified user interface. Acer ProShield features pre-boot authentication (PBA) and protects the notebook from BIOS level all the way to application level. It allows creating a Personal Secure Drive (PSD) to seamlessly store and encrypting all critical files, so that even if the notebook is stolen or lost the data cannot be accessed. Unwanted files or folders can be permanently removed beyond recovery thanks to the File Shredder utility. Finally, it offers the automated solution to manage IT assets remotely and on the go.

Another layer of security is offered by Acer Backup/eRecovery Manager to back-up your valuable data and media library and protect your assets. Recovery is on demand, thanks to Acer eRecovery Manager. Wake-on-LAN allowing a computer to be turned on by a network message, provides remote management options.

The TravelMate P243 comes with Acer Office Manager (AOM), a manageability solution, which allows SMB to deploy security policies, monitor IT assets, and schedule maintenance tasks in one simple manageability package. The P243 offers Energy Star 5.0 compliancy together with EPEAT Gold1 qualification, with better energy savings and longer battery life. Pricing and availability hasn’t been announced for the Indian sub-region as of now, so stay tuned to this space for more details.
