Acer TravelMate 6593 6493

Acer in the post-CES wake has started shipping a pair of new pro notebooks skewed towards high-end users. The 14-inch TravelMate 6493 and the 15-inch TravelMate 6593 are fast for business PCs and run both low- and high-power 2.53GHz Core 2 Duo processors; they also use more efficient 1,066MHz DDR3 memory and carry 7,200RPM hard drives to reduce load times as bottlenecks.

The 6493 is considered the entry point and starts at $1,099 with 3GB of memory, a 250GB hard drive and Intel's GMA 4500MHD for video. Moving to the 6593 at $1,499 adds both the larger screen and slightly faster processor as well as an extra 1GB of memory. Acer says both models should ship today.
