Interface initiative. A superb diversity of interfaces and ease of upgrading were apparently at the very top of Acer's development list for its latest 15-inch business laptop. The screen and security features are also compelling. But can the important input devices, ergonomics and engine also keep up?

Acer’s high-end reliable business solution
Source: Laptop Media English Archive.org version
The Acer TravelMate P658 is an expensive business notebook offering tons of useful features but above all, this laptop is all about reliability. The chassis is sturdy enough to take a beating but this comes at a price. The weight and dimensions of the notebook aren’t exactly suggesting “portable” but it isn’t falling behind most competitors either. It’s still a great choice if you are looking for a 15-inch business machine, though. Also, as a business solution, we weren’t exactly thrilled with the keyboard ergonomics – the keys felt a little bit too shallow but the touchpad experience was great.

Acer Graphics Dock with Nvidia GTX 960M Review | Notebookcheck
Surprise! A graphics card in an external case - familiar. In the past, this technology has not worked as intended. In this review, we put all that aside and take a look at what the GPU is capable of. Update 10-15-2016: Aspire Switch 12S does not turn into a gamer.

A fair deal. With its latest TravelMate P658-G2 top model, Acer is certainly bringing out the big guns: SSD/HDD combo, LTE modem, 16 GB of RAM. All that comes in addition to low operating noise, decent battery life, and a three-year warranty.

 

Comment

Acer: In 1976, the company was founded in Taiwan under the name Multitech and was renamed Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals. Since 2007, the group has merged with Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell, which also market their own laptop product lines.

Acer computers are designed for a variety of purposes, including ultrabooks for mobile use, gaming laptops for gamers, affordable options for everyday tasks, and 2-in-1 convertible laptops for versatility. Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series).

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M series.

NVIDIA GeForce 940MX: Mid-range laptop graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture. Compared to the older 940M, the MX now also supports GDDR5 graphics memory and maybe slightly faster clock speeds.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

6200U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

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.  

6500U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

Intel Kaby Lake:

i7-7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.
