Acer has made available the new TravelMate B113 notebook PC to its U.S. and Canadian customers.
The TravelMate B113 notebook is powered by a six-cell battery, achieving more than seven hours of battery life. Inside the case there are a third-generation Intel Core i3 processor, up to 4GB of DDR3 memory upgradeable to 8GB and a 500GB SATA hard disk.
The notebook has a 11.6-inch Acer ComfyView LCD LED backlit display with HD (1366x768) resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The "ComfyView" display has an anti-glare matte surface.
Connectivity options include Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi and Bluetooth. In addition, the Acer Video Conference solution, including a high-def webcam and built-in microphone, also enables high-quality video conferences.
Acer ProShield Manager, a suite of security and manageability tools, integrates fundamental features in a unified user interface. The multi-level Acer ProShield prevents unauthorized access while safeguarding the B113 notebook's assets and data integrity. Acer ProShield features pre-boot authentication (PBA) and protects the notebook from the BIOS level all the way to the application level. Users can create a Personal Secure Drive (PSD) to store and encrypt all critical files. Unwanted files or folders can be permanently removed beyond recovery thanks to the File Shredder utility. Finally, it offers the automated solution to manage IT assets remotely.
The TravelMate B113 has another layer of security with Acer Backup that protects data. Acer eRecovery Manager provides on-demand recovery. Additionally, the TravelMate B113 comes with Acer Office Manager (AOM), a manageability solution, which allows IT managers to deploy security policies, monitor IT assets, and schedule maintenance tasks in one simple application.
The student-friendly Acer TravelMate B113 notebooks are available now in the U.S. and Canada at authorized Acer resellers. Prices for the TravelMate B113 begin at $399 in the U.S. and at $369 CAD in Canada.
