The TravelMate P6 makes sharing and collaborating easy with a 180-degree hinge design, enabling it to lay flat so the display can be shared with others.
Tough, Tested and Reliable
The Acer TravelMate P6 was designed for mobile professionals, and part of that is being able to handle real-life situations that might come up in and outside the office. Made to be MIL-STD-810G and 810F compliant, a set of military durability tests, the TravelMate P6 can survive the bumps from airport security, accidental drops and other mishaps. Other tests check the laptop’s resistance to rain, humidity and extreme temperatures.
In addition to keeping data safe, companies want devices that are easy to deploy and manage remotely. Outfitted with Windows 10 Pro, the TravelMate P6 offers powerful security features to help safeguard data. Customers can log in using Windows Hello via the fingerprint reader on the power button, or through the IR webcam that leverages biometric facial recognition. Both methods eliminate the need to remember and use a password. When the webcam is idle, the camera shutter can be physically closed for additional security. An integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 chip delivers hardware-based protection for passwords and encryption keys. The pre-loaded Acer ProShield includes a suite of security and management tools that help safeguard sensitive data, while Acer Office Management lets IT professionals deploy security policies and monitor assets from one interface.
