MANILA, OCTOBER 31, 2007 (STAR) Traveling in style, especially with a PC, is a must in these high-tech times, and the best travel companion is an Acer TravelMate notebook, with its new form factor that’s beginning to be the buzz these days among executives and so-called “telecommuters.”

Acer Philippines Inc., one of the world’s top computer manufacturers, recently introduced its newest laptops for businessmen-cum-travelers.

The Acer TravelMate series is led by the top-of-the-line TravelMate 6292-301G16, the 6291-101G16 and the 6291-100512, with the 6292 series powered by the groundbreaking Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 processor with Intel 965GM Express chipset, and the 6291 series by the Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 processor with Intel 945GM Express chipset.

Aside from the revolutionary Intel processors, the TravelMates, particularly the 6292-301G16, boast of other features like 1GB DDR2 533MHz memory, Intel GMA X1300 with up to 358MB DVMT 4.0 (8MB dedicated memory and 350MB shared memory) for sharper video clips and photo images on a 12.1-inch WXGA CrystalBrite TFT LCD screen for those ultra-perfect office presentations or online games.

The 6291-101G16 and the 6291-100512, on the other hand, have 1GB DDR2 533MHz memory and 512MB DDR2 533MHz, respectively, with both having Intel GMA950 graphics cards.

The Acer TravelMate 6292-301G16 and the 6291-101G16 both carry 160GB SATA hard drives, while the 6291-100512 has a 120GB SATA hard drive. But all have DASP or Disc Anti-Shock Protection capability for that ultimate guarantee of a hardworking and durable hard drive for storing all those office and personal files.

The new Acer TravelMate laptops all display sleek, subdued, yet strong and masculine appeal, perfect for the cyber executive with its magnesium alloy structure that provides stability and protection anywhere he goes.

Add to this the embedded security protection like the Acer Bio-Protection Fingerprint Solution that features Pre-Boot Authentication (PBA) Computer Protection, plus Acer FingerNav and Acer Fingerlaunch for the 6292-301G16 model, for that peace of mind in case of laptop theft or unauthorized use.

Other outstanding features of the Acer TravelMate models include the built-in Acer CrystalEye Webcam that supports the Acer PrimaLite technology, the unique Acer 3D Surround Sound speakers, built-in Super Multi Double Layer optical drives, and the Windows Vista Home Premium operating system for both the Acer TravelMate 6292-301G16 and the 6291-101G16.

The Acer TravelMate 6291-100512, meanwhile, has the open-standard Linux operating system for executives who are more at home with this system.
