Acer dropped us a note this morning to let us know about its new TravelMate 5760 laptop built around Intel's second generation Core platform. It's a 15.6-inch notebook crammed full of security features for enterprise road warriors, including Acer ProShield Security, a suite of security manageability tools integrated in a unified user interface. Boasting pre-boot authentication, Acer claims its new TravelMate keeps business users protected from the BIOS level all the way to the application level.
The software suite also allows users to create a Personal Security Drive to store and encrypt important files, keeping all those work documents and incriminating ransom notes safe should your laptop fall into the wrong hands. There's a built-in file shredder, Intel Anti-Theft technology, and Absolute Data Protection (ADP) to both track stolen laptops and lock everything down until it's recovered.
On the hardware side of things, the TravelMate 5760 features:
Core i3 and i5 processor options
Up to 8GB of DDR3
1366x768 screen resolution
Intel HD 3000 graphics
250/320/500/640/750GB hard drive
8X DVD burner
6- or 9-cell battery
The TravelMate 5760 will ship in the U.K. in July starting at around $600. No word on when it will land stateside.
