Acer South Africa has released the new TravelMate 6293, a professional notebook designed to suit the demands of corporate, SMB and SOHO users who require reliable performance on the move.

Featuring the latest Intel Centrino Processor Technology, the TravelMate 6293 is equipped with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, supporting the Intel 64 architecture, as well as a Mobile Intel GM45 Express Chipset with integrated 3D graphics. The integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD with full support for Microsoft DirectX delivers compelling graphics and video experiences.
A wide-aspect 12.1" high brightness WXGA screen gives users a greater viewing area, thus reducing the need to scroll sideways when working with spreadsheets. Weighing only 1.95 kg and with a battery life of four and half hours, this notebook is sure to be a winner with all.
The TravelMate 6293 boasts up to 4 GB of DDR3 1033 MHz memory that significantly increases data bandwidth, reduces power consumption and enhances thermal performance.
Ample storage is guaranteed by a spacious hard disk (up to 320 GB / 7200 rpm), a multi-in-one card reader and DVD-Super Multi optical drive that provides more than enough space to store and manage files and folders of any size.
The TravelMate 6293 also offers a complete set of connectivity solutions, from an Intel Wireless WiFi Link 5100/5300 (dual-band quad-mode 802.11a/b/g/Draft-N) network connection, to Gigabit LAN and modem connections, and in select models, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity.
TravelMate 6293 models are also bundled with Acer Video Conference Manager Pack that, together with the integrated Acer CrystalEye camera, make it easy to set up videoconference wherever an Internet connection is available.
The Acer Bio-Protection digital print reading solution, which supports Pre-Boot Authentication (PBA), and Acer FingerLaunch, which offers a secure way to launch programs or authenticated documents with a simple swipe, offer enterprise-level security to ensure that corporate data is kept safe from prying eyes.
The TravelMate 6293 is also protected by Acer's DASP technology, which combines innovative hardware and software solutions to protect the notebook hard disk from hits and falls. Acer DiskAnti-Shock Protection is a special material plate able to absorb hits and insulate the hard disk, helping to prevent disk damage.
Says John Geypen, business development manager at Acer South Africa: "The TravelMate 6293 is tailored to meet the needs of professionals who demand a notebook with excellent performance and connectivity, combined with manageability, expandability and durability. The TravelMate 6293 provides performance and productivity features that pack a punch, packaged in an ergonomic, streamlined and stylish chassis."
The Acer TravelMate 6293 comes with a three year on site warranty and starts at a recommended retail price of R14 999.99 including VAT, depending on the model.
