Acer Announces TravelMate X3410 Business Class Notebookby Brett Howse on January 6, 2019 5:45 PM EST
In addition to the consumer focused products announced this week at CES, Acer has also announced a new business notebook this week. The TravelMate X3410 is a 14-inch notebook aimed at professionals, with several options depending on the budget and performance requirements.
Unlike the Acer Swift 7 just announced, the TravelMate X3410 is more function over form. The 14-inch laptop offers a 1920x1080 IPS display with Acer’s ComfyView matte coating. Without the thin bezels of the higher-end models, the TravelMate X3410 is quite a bit bigger, with dimensions of 328 x 239 x 20 mm (12.9 x 9.4 x 0.8 inches) and a rather hefty weight of 1.6 Kg (3.53 lbs).
Acer offers a range of processor options, from the base model Intel Core i3-8130U, which is a dual-core part with a frequency of 2.2 GHz, to the Core i5-8250U quad-core, up to the Core i7-8550U quad-core. Interestingly, Acer has chosen to outfit the laptop with DDR4 SODIMMS rather than the more typical LPDDR3 we’d see in Ultrabooks, and Acer offers 8 to 16 GB of DDR4, but with SODIMMS that can be upgraded later as well. SSDs are all SATA based, from 128 GB at the low end to 512 GB at the high end.

As a slightly thicker device, Acer has found room for a Gigabit Ethernet port, to complement the 802.11ac wireless, and there is quite a wide range of ports as well, including three USB 3.0 ports, one USB 3.1 Type-C port, HDMI, and even VGA. For those that appreciate it, there’s also a SD card reader.
Acer rates battery life at up to 15 hours with the 5170 mAh battery, which should be right around 60 Wh total capacity. Acer ships a 65 W charger which should allow for a fast refill as well.
Although not as jaw-dropping as the Acer Swift 7, the TravelMate X3410 comes in with a much lower price, starting at $899.99 USD.

cosmotic - Sunday, January 6, 2019 - linkNice to see an RJ45 port. Would be nice to see that AC port replaced with a USBPD Thunderbolt port and a 4K screen.
PeachNCream - Sunday, January 6, 2019 - linkMy first laptop was a TravelMate, but that was back when Texas Instruments was selling under the brand name before selling their computer lines to Acer. I'm genuinely surprised to seem Acer is still using that branding considering it doesn't have much of a legacy behind it.
Rookierookie - Sunday, January 6, 2019 - linkI had one a few years ago and it was a solid machine, though its discreet graphics had heat issues.
zodiacfml - Sunday, January 6, 2019 - linkThat dual core is a rip-off.
Deprectuod - Tuesday, November 10, 2020 - linkHello, I am currently looking for a laptop. I am a student and I have a constant problem with powerpoint presentations, my laptop is very slow and then it off when I prepare a big presentation. This year I encountered this several times, so I had to use the services https://edubirdie.com/powerpoint-presentations-wri... because my presentation was not even saved. I didn't have time to redo, the writing service helped me, but next times I would like to avoid such situations)
