Acer updates its TravelMate P654 with Broadwell chips

Acer is mostly known for making budget-oriented notebooks but the acclaimed Taiwanese company also makes business laptops like last year’s TravelMate P654. This portable computer debuted back in August 2014 and offered nice tech specs but with a few flaws here and there which positioned it right in the middle of the pack. Quite naturally for this time period the machine came with Intel Haswell processors but now we all know that the 4th Intel Core generation will soon be retired in favor of Broadwell and Skylake chips so something has to be done. Acer has done it – starting now TravelMate P654 is now available with the latest 14 nm Intel Broadwell chips.

The updated TravelMate P654 does not offer tons of Broadwell chips (and there will be a few models after all) and comes with two such processors to choose from – the Core i5-5300U (dual core, Hyper-Threading, 2.3 GHz/2.9 GHz Turbo, 3 MB of L3 cache) and the Core i7-5500U (dual-core, Hyper-Threading, 2.4 GHz/3.0 GHz Turbo, 4 MB of L3 cache). The rest of the specs remain the same so expect to get a 14-inch TN display at 1366 x 768 pixels for the i5 model and a 14-inch IPS display at 1080p resolution for the i7 model, 8 GB of DDR3 SDRAM, a 256 GB SSD, an integrated biometric fingerprint reader and GeForce 840M graphics.

No word on pricing as of now.
