Acer aims for the enterprise

Acer launched its latest notebook series -- the TravelMate 720 -- in Sydney today, the company highlighting its strategy to penetrate the high-end corporate market.

The TravelMate 720 incorporates the latest technological advances, said company officials, including the new Intel Pentium II processor for mobiles in speeds of 200 to 366MHz. Also new is a graphite-based Lithium Ion battery which provides four hours of batter life on a single charge, the company claims.

Acer's strategy is in-line with market trends, according to one industry figure present at the launch. Helmut Flieg, Intel OEM sales manager, said that the adoption of mobile computing is growing at a rate 20 per cent more than that of desktops. Factors such as the lowering of total cost of ownership and the new generation of mobile processors, which are narrowing the performance gap between desktops and mobiles, were cited.

The TravelMate 720 is priced from $6999.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
