Acer TravelMate P6 in review: Lightweight business laptop with long battery life

Persistent worker. The TravelMate P6 scores points with a low weight, long battery life, and low operating noise. The equipment is also right: A Core i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM (dual-channel mode), NVMe SSD, and Thunderbolt 3. Positive: Acer grants the laptop a three-year warranty.
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Sebastian Jentsch (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain),

The Acer TravelMate P6 P614-51T-G2 is a high-end 14-inch business laptop. The device is powered by a Core i7-10510U processor (Comet Lake). Moreover, the P6 doesn't lack competitors. Some of them are the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, and the Dell Latitude 7410. In order to have current Ice Lake devices in the comparison field too, we also add the Asus ZenBook 13 UX325JA and the Apple MacBook Pro 13 2020 13.3-inch devices to the competition.

Case - Acer uses a magnesium alloy

Acer has forgone any creative extravagances with the TravelMate. Since this is a work tool for the professional environment, a sober appearance is used. The P6 is not the fanciest laptop. This is due to the fact that the base unit protrudes a good one centimeter towards the back. However, users' opinions will differ here. Furthermore, Acer has chosen a matte black case made of a magnesium alloy for the TravelMate. At just under 1.2 kg, the laptop doesn't weigh much. The battery is firmly installed, and there is no maintenance hatch.

Acer has managed to avoid making any mistakes in terms of workmanship. The gap dimensions are in order, and sharp edges are not noticeable. The base unit and the lid can be twisted a bit, but the whole situation is kept completely within the limits and doesn't represent a problem. Moreover, exerting pressure on the back of the lid doesn't cause any image distortions. The tight hinges hold the lid firmly in place, and it hardly wobbles. The maximum aperture angle is 180°. Opening the lid with one hand is possible with a little finger-hand-arm acrobatics.

Within our comparison field, the P6 is the laptop with the largest dimensions. In terms of weight, it is one of the lightest devices.

Connectivity - TravelMate with Thunderbolt 3

Despite its compact dimensions, the slim laptop offers a well-rounded range of ports. The connections are located in the rear areas of the right and left sides. This keeps the area next to the palm rest free of cables.

The two USB Type-A ports operate according to the USB 3.2 Gen 1 standard. They are joined by a Thunderbolt 3 port that supports Power Delivery and DisplayPort via USB-C. Together with the HDMI output, the TravelMate offers two video outputs. The Thunderbolt 3 port also offers the possibility to connect a docking station or an external GPU.

SDCard reader

The MicroSD memory card reader is very slow. When copying large data blocks, a maximum transfer rate of 26.2 MB/s is achieved. The transfer of 250 jpg image files (about 5 MB each) is completed at a speed of 22 MB/s. We test memory card readers using a reference card (the 64 GB Toshiba Exceria Pro M501 microSDXC).

Communication

It's not possible to install an LTE modem.
It's not possible to install an LTE modem.

The WLAN module uses a chip from Intel (Wi-Fi 6 AX201) that supports the 802.11a/b/g/h/n/ac/ax WLAN standards. The transmission speeds determined under optimal conditions (no other WLAN devices nearby, short distance between laptop and server PC) are outstanding. Wired network connections are handled by Intel's I219-LM Gigabit Ethernet chip.

Our test device doesn't offer an LTE modem, and none can be retrofitted either. However, there are TravelMate P6 models available that have an LTE modem on board.

Webcam

The built-in webcam (0.9 MP) produces images with a maximum resolution of 1280x720 pixels. Moreover, there are issues in terms of color accuracy. With a Delta E 2000 color deviation of almost 17, the target (Delta E less than 3) is clearly missed.

Security

The laptop comes with some security features. It offers a Trusted Platform Module (2.0), a fingerprint scanner (integrated into the power button), and a smart card reader. The latter is an optional feature. In terms of software, the device comes with Acer's ProShield security software. In addition, the webcam is equipped with a shutter.

Accessories

The TravelMate comes with the usual accessories: A quick-start guide and warranty information. However, Acer has a lot of optional accessories available. The most interesting should be the USB Type-C Dock (NP.DCK11.01D; about 150 Euros (~$179)) and the USB Type-C Dock II (NP.DCK11.01N; about 200 Euros (~$238)). Both extend the TravelMate's range of connections considerably.

Maintenance

Maintenance and upgrade procedures require detaching the bottom cover - no complicated undertaking. After removing all the screws on the underside of the device, the bottom cover can be lifted with the aid of a grout finishing tool. It doesn't sit excessively tight in its place.

Warranty

Acer grants the TravelMate a three-year warranty (submission/return). A three-year on-site warranty costs about 150 Euros (~$179).

Acer equips the P614 with a backlit chiclet keyboard. The flat, smooth keys have a short travel and a clear pressure point. While typing, the keyboard yields slightly in the middle, but this didn't prove to be annoying. The illumination (two brightness levels) is controlled with a function key. All in all, Acer delivers a keyboard suitable for everyday use here.

Touchpad

The multi-touch capable ClickPad occupies an area of about 10.5 x 6.5 cm. This provides plenty of space for the use of gesture controls. The smooth pad surface makes it easy for fingers to glide on it. In addition, the pad also reacts to input in the corners. It has a short travel and a clear pressure point.

Display - IPS with touchscreen

The matte 14-inch touchscreen display has a native resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. Brightness (308.4 cd/m²) and contrast (923:1) are okay, but they should be much better on a laptop in this price range. Its competitors consistently deliver better values. Positive: The display doesn't show any PWM flickering.

* ... smaller is better

Out of the box, the display shows a good color reproduction, and it only just misses the target (Delta E less than 3) with a Delta E 2000 color deviation of almost 3.1. Furthermore, the display doesn't suffer from a blue tint. Calibration only leads to marginal improvements. The AdobeRGB (61%) and sRGB (93%) color spaces aren't fully mapped.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
26 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14 ms rise
↘ 12 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 48 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
37 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18 ms rise
↘ 19 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 35 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (38.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17714 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Acer has equipped the TravelMate with a viewing-angle-stable IPS panel. As a result, the screen can be read from any position. The display can be read outdoors when the sun is not too bright.

Processor

The TravelMate doesn't offer an Ice Lake processor. Instead, Acer uses a Core i7-10510U quad-core processor that is based on Intel's Comet Lake architecture. This ULV model (TDP: 15 watts) operates at a base speed of 1.8 GHz. This can be increased to 4.3 GHz (four cores) or 4.9 GHz (one core) via Turbo.

The processor works through the multithread tests of the Cinebench benchmarks at 3.8 to 4.2 GHz for a short time. The clock rate then drops to 3.1 to 3.3 GHz. Moreover, the single-thread tests are run at 4.3 to 4.9 GHz. On battery power, the speeds are 1.8 to 2.2 GHz (multithread) and 1.4 to 1.8 GHz (single-thread).

Multithread (plugged in)
Multithread (plugged in)
Single-thread (plugged in)
Single-thread (plugged in)

We verify if the CPU Turbo is used consistently when plugged in by running the Cinebench R15 benchmark's multithread test in a continuous loop for at least 30 minutes. The results remain at a quite constant level throughout. Turbo is used to a relatively small extent.
