Acer is expanding its successful business-oriented TravelMate lineup with a sleek new offering – the TravelMate X349. It’s supposed to come out on the market this fall with an absurdly low starting price of around $649, although the model we’ve acquired sports a Core i7-6500U chip, thus considerably more expensive. Still, the new TravelMate X349 can easily go against other more expensive 14-inchers like the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga. But, of course, you won’t get the 360-degree rotatable hinge with Acer’s solution.
Anyway, the TravelMate X349 surprises with excellent price/performance ratio, good IPS panel and exceptional build quality complimented with an all-aluminum design. Another interesting thing about this laptop is the wide range of connectivity options including a USB-C 3.1 connector, which allows you to use Acer’s USB-C docking station. It gives you more connection options and a GTX 960M GPU, which will be more than enough for you to enjoy some gaming on the go without sacrificing mobility. We will try to go into detail regarding this feature and see how it will play out.
