Acer TravelMate P2: la nuova gamma “pro” è interessante un po’ per tutti (foto)

Cosimo Alfredo Pina -

Non solo tablet tra le novità Acer; l’azienda taiwanese rilancia infatti anche la sua gamma pro con i nuovi TravelMate P2, notebook che tutto sommato si adattano bene anche a chi usa il portatile non necessariamente solo per lavoro.

Infatti i TravelMate P249 e TravelMate P259 sono due notebook da 14 e 15,6″, tra l’altro arricchiti con una rifinitura in tessuto antiscivolo e antigraffio,  che montano tutto il necessario a svolgere anche attività moderatamente intense. Purtroppo la scheda tecnica è ancora parziale, ma ci dà già un quadro abbastanza chiaro.

  • Display: 14″ o 15,6″ full HD, retroilluminazione LED
  • Processori: Intel Core di 6a generazione
  • RAM: DDR 4 (supponiamo almeno 4 GB e fino a 16 GB)
  • GPU: fino ad NVIDIA GeForce 940M
  • Altro: lettore di impronte digitali, Trusted Platform Module (TPM2.0), audio Acer TrueHarmony

Come per tutti gli altri dispositivi presentati oggi, anche i nuovi TravelMate P2 sono stati annunciati solo per gli Stati Uniti, dove arriveranno entro la fine dell’anno con prezzi a partire da 599$. Chissà se anche da noi Acer riuscirà a tenere così bassi i prezzi.

Aggiornamento: Acer ha rilasciato anche prezzi e uscita in Italia del notebook. Arriverà nel quarto trimestre, quindi per fine anno, ad un prezzo di partenza di 399€.
