During its livestreamed event, Acer unveiled a new series of products called Enduro. As the name would suggest, these consists of rugged laptops and tablets. And as you’d expect from rugged products, these will come with MIL-STD 810G and varying IP ratings to signify their toughness.
The highlight of the range are the Acer Enduro N7 and N3 laptops, both coming with 14-inch Full HD displays. The former is the bulkier one of the two, with an IP65 rating, and a weight of 2.85kg. It comes with an Intel Core i5-8250U processor, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of SATA SSD storage. It also comes with a battery life rated at 10.5 hours.
The Acer Enduro N3 is less bulky, with an IP53 rating. But as a result, it is lighter, weighing barely 2kg. It can also afford to be a little better equipped, coming with up to an Intel Core i7-10510U processor. It can also have up to 16GB of RAM, which users can push further to 32GB, up to 1TB of NVM3 PCIe 3 SSD, and up to an additional 1TB HDD.
In addition to the laptops, there are also three tablets under the Acer Enduro line. The first is the Enduro T5, which runs a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 display, Windows 10, and an Intel Core m3-7Y30 processor. It also has 4GB of RAM, 128GB of SATA SSD storage, and a battery life of 10 hours. The Enduro T5 also has an IP65 rating.
This is followed by the Enduro T1, which also runs Windows 10. While the display also measures in at 10.1 inches, it has a slightly lower resolution at 1280 x 800. The processor here is an Intel Celeron 450 processor, with RAM and storage being 4GB and 64GB, respectively. It also comes with an IP54 rating.
There’s also an Android 9 Pie version of the Acer Enduro T1. And while the display here is smaller, measuring at 8 inches, it has the same 1280 x 800 resolution. It runs a MediaTek MT8385 chipset, and the same 4GB RAM and 64GB storage combo, as well as the same IP54 ratng.
Despite these many products in the new Acer Enduro line, the company has only shared the price of the Enduro N3 laptop. This is priced at US$899 (~RM3846). But despite this, the company says that the exact specs and prices will vary by region. So far, the company hasn’t said which of these Enduro devices will be making their way here.
