At just over a thousand dollars, the Acer TravelMate P6 does seem to check all of the right boxes. In general, it's just an all-around solid PC. It has an ultra-light magnesium build while remaining stylish, a solid matte display, and a very good keyboard.

Acer's refresh of the TravelMate P6 is one of the rare business laptops that crams a generous number of ports into a thin-and-light chassis, making it a potential choice for travelers who can overlook its bloatware and stodgy styling.

The TravelMate P6 is made out of magnesium alloy, although it definitely feels more premium than many others that use the same material. And it's built to be sturdy, compliant with MIL-STD-810G and MIL-STD-810F standards. Acer says it can stand up to accidental drops, bumps at airport security, and more.
