Acer has just unveiled the new TravelMate X3 series of laptops that come with Windows 10 and hardware specifically optimized to make the most of the new operating system.
The TravelMate X349 features a 14-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and includes a LED backlit keyboard that makes the laptop super easy to use during the night.
In terms of power, the laptop features the sixth-generation Intel Core processors (up to i7) and a maximum of 8GB DDR4 memory while for storage the top-of-the-range configuration comes with a 512GB SSD. Microsoft hasn’t provided the exact specs of the battery, but it claims it provides up to 10 hours of autonomy per full charge.
Other than that, the laptop comes with a USB Type-C port that can be used with Acer’s own dock for connecting two separate 4K displays, but also with a 720p HD webcam, and a wide Precision Touchpad.
Super thin and with support for Windows Hello
The laptop weighs in only 1.53 kg (3.3 pounds) and is super thin at just 18 mm (0.7 inches). And just as expected since it ships with Windows 10 Pro out of the box, it also features an integrated touch fingerprint sensor that supports Windows Hello.
“This series lights up great Windows 10 features, including your personal digital assistant Cortana, convenient and secure login with Windows Hello using the integrated touch fingerprint sensor and access to great apps, games, movies and TV shows through the Windows Store,” Microsoft explained today, obviously pleased to see another laptop running Windows 10 that reaches the market.
The TravelMate X349 will go on sale in the fall in all big markets. North Americans will receive it in October for the price of $649.99 while EMEA markets will get the laptop in September, with the entry-level configuration to cost €480. Chinese buyers will also find the laptop in stores beginning this September from ¥5,999.
