Acer Wins 2014 Best Product of the Year Award From Videomaker
SAN JOSE, Calif. (2014-11-28)

Acer today announced that its TravelMate P645 was awarded the distinction of “Best Mobile Workstation of 2014” from Videomaker, the leading national consumer magazine for video enthusiasts. Videomaker reviews and evaluates more than 100 products every year and they publish their selections for the best products annually in the December issue.

“We are pleased to have been awarded this honor for our premium commercial-grade Ultrabook, which was built to keep our customers productive 24/7 and to withstand the rigors of regular business travel,” said Gregg Prendergast, vice president of commercial sales. “Featuring a robust, yet thin and light design with powerful security and management tools, the Acer TravelMate P645 has been a very popular model with our commercial customers. We’re delighted that it’s being recognized as the best of its kind.”

The TravelMate P645 Ultrabook line conforms to the most stringent criteria in the industry to ensure commercial-grade reliability with a durable design. It features a high-strength carbon fiber lid that contributes to the lightweight design that weighs only 3.31 pounds and measures just 0.81 inches thin. Plus, the Magnesium-Aluminum palm rest and bottom cover withstand extreme pressure and protect the system from drops. The cooling fan ensures the Ultrabook runs at a comfortable and reliable temperature, while the integrated Dust Defender clears out dust from the cooling system for improved reliability.

The full-sized Chiclet keyboard provides a comfortable 1.4mm travel distance to ensure productivity, and has a spill-resistant design to protect it from accidents. In addition, the keyboard is LED-backlit, so Acer customers can see the keys even in dimly-lit environments, such as on a plane or while taking notes during a presentation or conference.

The TravelMate P645 has the option for the Acer ProDock that comes with all the ports executives need in an ergonomic design for a quick and easy connection and tangle-free cable management, including USB 3.0, USB 2.0, Display port, DVI, HDMI, and VGA.

It also includes a wide range of security features, including Acer ProShield Manager, a suite of essential security and manageability tools that integrates key features and prevents unauthorized access while safeguarding valuable assets and data.

An IT department’s dream client, it comes with Acer Office Manager (AOM), a manageability solution, which allows IT managers to deploy security policies, monitor IT assets, and schedule maintenance tasks in one simple application.

The Acer TravelMate P645 ultrabook line is available to customers with Windows 8.1, Windows 8 Pro 64-bit, Windows 8 64-bit, and Windows 7.
