Acer TravelMate 8004.

TravelMate is a series of computer notebooks manufactured by Acer. Of the various notebook series Acer has offered, the TravelMate is designated as a business and professional computer built to withstand day-to-day activities. Travelmate laptops are well received by reviewers, often, however, they are faulted for a lack of visual appeal. The TravelMate name was previously used by Texas Instruments, which sold its mobile computing division to Acer in 1997.

Hardware[edit]

Depending on the model, the TravelMate Series' standard features may include: an Ethernet adapter, a Wireless Ethernet adapter, one or more PC Card slot. They also include USB 2.0 ports, an optical drive, and 1 VGA port. More recent versions feature dual core processors along with a 5 in 1 card reader, a large hard drive and a lot of memory. The more recent models come with better graphics cards. This means more graphics connectivity like S-Video.

Software[edit]

The operating system included with the computer is Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7, which interfaces with several proprietary Acer programs. These programs include Acer ePower Management for managing the computer's mobile power options, and Acer Launch Manager for configuring the computer's launch keys, which are used to launch various user applications. Some models in the series include a webcam and additional bundled software that allows users to manipulate CD data, operate the webcam, organize windows and empowering technology, a system that is designed to allow safer, more comfortable and practical use of the notebook.
