Acer TravelMate B117

Acer's new TravelMate laptop is a new release by the Taiwanese company, which is solely designed with students in mind. This new notebook is made for ultra-portability, which is great in the education industry. The Windows 10 system is the first laptop made for classroom interaction with its new LED light on the outside. The computer is a very portable with a size of 11.6 inch and only 1.36 kg. It also has a HD camera and HD screen for crisp and clear viewing. However, it isn't just for students and classroom environment, as it can also be used in an office setting for meetings. The LED light on the back of the screen allows the teacher in schools or the person in the board room to see the LED light change and know without disruption that the student or board member has a question. The laptop features sleek black color and is very trendy. It also has space to store files. However, it is mostly designed for the cloud computing, where teachers can use Acer's TeachSmart to distribute assignments and material without actually needing to store the material on the laptop itself. All in all, Acer is trying to revolutionize the school-learning environment.

Inexhaustible. The TravelMate B117-M offers silent operation, very long battery runtimes, and a three-year warranty. At a price of 550 Euros (~$616), it is not one of the cheapest models. The installed SSD and Windows 7 and Windows 10 Pro version are reflected in the price.

Comment

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.
