Reg Hardware has put together a review of the Acer TravelMate 6292, which was announced last month. The TravelMate 6292 is based on Intel’s Santa Rosa platform, and is part of Acer’s new “ProFile” lineup of laptops, geared towards business professionals.
It has a 12.1-inch widescreen display with Intel GMA X3100 graphics, is powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo (T7100 up through T7700), up to 4GB of memory, has a magnesium alloy case, and has “Enhanced Acer DASP – Disk Anti-Shock Protection”. Even though it weighs around 4 pounds, it does have an internal optical drive, and Acer claims a battery life of between 5 hours and 7 hours (depending on battery).
Excerpt from the Review:
The TravelMate 6292 certainly feels well built and able to stand up to the harsh life on the road. While you’ll obviously still need to exercise some care when handling it, it should be able to take the odd knock or bump without keeling over. It doesn’t quite fall into the super portable, take-everywhere-you-go category, but it’s not far off.
