Acer has unveiled its TravelMate X514-51 commercial notebook series for small and medium business users. It’s designed for professionals requiring a durable, yet sleek device that can support heavy workloads and frequent business travel.  

The TravelMate X5 sports a premium quality magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis for holding up to the rigours of life on the go. These materials are two to four times stronger than standard aluminium alloys at the same thickness, yet weigh between 20-35 percent less. This blend of materials makes the notebook thin and light while also being resistant to bending and twisting.

Highly portable, the notebook computer weighs just 980 grams and measures 15 mm thin making it easier to hold and fit in a briefcase, bag or backpack. Acer claims the computer has up to 10 hours of battery life to support a full day’s work on a single charge. Primed for excellent performance, the new notebooks are powered by up to 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processors, up to 16GB DDR4 memory, and up to fast and responsive two 512GB solid-state drives for viewing and editing large spreadsheets, presentations and videos. Outfitted with Windows 10 Pro, the notebook provides powerful security and productivity essentials.

“We’re confident our professional customers will appreciate our thinnest and lightest professional notebooks to date,” says Belinda Marais from Acer Africa. “Sleek, yet robust, they’re built for the rigours of frequent travel with a sturdy chassis and strong security features to keep data safe at home and abroad.”

The Model Y is Tesla’s fifth car to market and marks the company’s second attempt at producing a mass-market electric vehicle.

“An SUV that will ride like a sports car,” said Elon Musk at the Model Y launch event. The South African-born CEO was referring to the performance version of the SUV, which is claimed to reach 100kph in 3.5 seconds from stationary.

Models expected to be released in the second half of 2020 include a long-range ($47 000/R680 000), all-wheel drive ($51 000/R740 000), and performance model ($60 000/~R870 000). A cheaper commercial model is expected to launch in 2021.

The seven-passenger vehicle’s interior will feature a touchscreen control panel on the dashboard, similar to the Model 3. It will also sport a panoramic sunroof.

“The cool thing is, it’s ‘feature complete,’” said Musk, with reference to the fitted sensors. “It will be able to do basically anything just with software upgrades.”
