Three Acer C2D Laptops

Acer is frequently seen as a close competitor with Apple: although the designs are clearly different, the two system builders have shared some similar laptop specifications ever since Apple began using Intel processors. Acer has continued this tradition to a degree with multiple new TravelMate systems that share the Core 2 Duo processor. Perhaps the closest match is the TravelMate 8210. A 15.4-inch screen, 256MB Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics, 1.3-megapixel webcam and Bluetooth compare closely to the MacBook Pro. The 8210 also has a carbon fiber reinforced lid and a SmartCard security system that can prevent others from using the computer without permission.

More varied are the 15.4-inch TravelMate 6410 and 6460. Both of these are treated as media hubs for those who may not need the performance or carbon lid of the 8210. The primary difference between the two is their graphics prowess. The 6460 has a Mobility Radeon X1300 that should improve performance in Windows Vista, while the 6410 uses only Intel integrated graphics. Both retain the Bluetooth and webcam of the higher-end model. Acer has not formally announced official prices for these or the TravelMate 8210, as prices can vary depending on what configurations resellers are willing to carry.
