The TravelMate P2 (TMP215-54) is not an eyecatching device. However, the manufacturer has done the best it can to make up for the unimpressive looks. We are talking about a great port selection, including a MicroSD card reader, a Thunderbolt 4 connector, three USB Type-As, and more. Not only that, but the keyboard and the touchpad combination is pretty good. Gone is the small unit from last year, at the expense of a new, bigger one, that is more friendly towards the environment. Acer state that it uses its OceanGlass technology. Essentially, this is plastic, collected or “bound” to the ocean. The optional fingerprint reader and IR face recognition scanner are a great complement to the TPM 2.0 module and the privacy shutter. While Acer still uses 768p TN panels for this machine, we are happy to report that our Acer TravelMate P2 (TMP215-54)’s IPS panel has a Full HD resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and a good contrast ratio. Its backlight doesn’t use PWM for brightness adjustment, but unfortunately, the screen covers only half of the colors found on the Web. The battery life is good for light Web browsing – 10 hours and 30 minutes. Watching HD videos offline will drain it a bit faster, though – 7 hours and 30 minutes. And if you are working, don’t forget your charger. Inside, you will find two RAM SODIMM slots for up to 32GB of DDR4 memory in dual-channel mode. Also, there is an M.2 PCIe x4 slot for fast SSDs, and a 2.5-inch SATA drive bay. Thankfully, you get mounting accessories inside the box. Generally, this machine has everything to suit all your business needs, with one major flaw – it can’t pour you coffee. If you are willing to do that yourself, and you don’t mind the low-budget build, then this is a great laptop for you.
