Acer presents notebook with 802.11ad Wi-Fi
The Taiwanese Acer has come up with a new and interesting notebook that is known as TravelMate P658. The new device is an updated version of the TravelMate P648 model, which was presented earlier at CES 2016. The main new feature of the newcomer is that it offers the latest 802.11ad Wi-Fi standard for incredibly fast data transfer speeds.
Apart from this the new notebook does not impress much but nevertheless it is still one nice device. The TravelMate P658 is based on mobile 6th generation Intel Skylake processors and sports 4-8 GB of DDR4 memory, up to 512 GB SSDs and up to 1 TB hard drives, discrete NVIDIA video cards, two microphones, a built-in web camera, D-Sub/DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort connectors, three USB 3.0 ports and one USB Type-C port with Thunderbolt 3. All this hardware is situated in a chassis that is made of aluminum and carbon fibers, which makes the TravelMater P658 even nicer. But what is a notebook with no display? Fortunately the Acer TravelMate P658 has a 15.6-inch display and you can even choose between two versions of the same display. In the first case the display works at the regular resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, while in the second case users will enjoy Full HD resolution. Unfortunately there’s no information whatsoever on a version with a 4K display, although this might come our way really soon.
There’s no information on how much the TravelMate P658 costs or when it will be in stores.
