Reviews for the Acer TravelMate P648-M-757N
Balanced bundle. With the TravelMate, Acer offers a well-made 14-inch alternative to the business models from the established brands HP, Dell and Lenovo. The TravelMate looks the same as its predecessor. However, the manufacturer has refreshed the hardware: Skylake, DDR4, and Thunderbolt 3 are on board. An already good computer has been made even better. Positive: The battery runtimes are excellent.

Acer's TravelMate P648 is a solid midrange business laptop with one standout feature: its Nvidia graphics card provides some extra horsepower for graphically intensive tasks. Plus, the system offers fast multitasking, solid security and a durable design.

The Acer TravelMate P648 has the looks of a solid business laptop, and it has solid power, too. But its lackluster display and shallow keyboard are poor tools for work, and its battery won't last a full day at the office and maybe not through a long flight. You'd be better off checking out the Lenovo ThinkPad T460 (starting at $674), our favorite business notebook on the market.

CommentIntel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
