I am not of a techie blogger... nor am I a techie mom.  But these past few days, I have been resesarching on a techie subject that every mom, I am sure can identify:  “what is the best laptop for my highschool kids”?   My eldest will be a senior high student next year, and my youngest will be in grade 10.  School projects, reports, researches, powerpoint presentations are becoming tedious tasks.  I NEED a laptop that will answer these needs, as well as value for money without sacrificing quality and technology.  I am seriously considering the three ACER TRAVELMATE models below:

Tough and sturdy, very ideal for students who commute, or simply energetic and always on the go.  This laptop is protected from bumps and drops with strong rubber strip, while the keyboards are resistant to accidental spills.  The hinges are designed to withstand up to 25,000 lid openings, really sturdy. The design allows the 11.6 inch display to lay flat, up to 180°, for group viewing. 

• Power blink
• Color coded
• TMB117’s robustness and durability passed a series of rigid specifications for MIL-STD-810G military-grade test (Department of Defense Test Method Standard)
• Water-resistant keyboard. The water resistant area extends up to the touchpad and hinge frame.

ACER TRAVELMATE P648.  This laptop has been designed and built to withstand the harshness of requent traveling. With school commuting and field trips, this is also a very ideal choice for me. It is created of high-strength carbon fiber and aluminum magnesium metal cover, yet it only weighs 3.7 lbs.  Acer claims that the TravelMate P648 is MIL-STD-810G tested against vibrations, shocks and extreme temperatures, so it should be fine when you jam your laptop bag into an overhead compartment. In addition, the notebook features a spill-resistant keyboard.

• LED-backlit keyboard
• Face log-in
• Fingerprint reader
• NFC Tap Contact Pick-up
• LTE Support with Sim Slot

ACER TRAVELMATE X3.  This laptop features a 14-inch display, a full HD IPS screen with 180-degree angling, a backlit keyboard, and an extra-large touchpad if you don’t have any room to put down a mouse.  The battery meanwhile, lasts for an acceptable 10 hours.

• Chiclet LED backlit keyboard
• Touch fingerprint scanner

Its a good thing I attended the business and tech blogging seminar spearheaded by Mustard Seed Systems Corporations, now I am well informed as far as my laptop choices for my teens.  And for the future business that I am also planning to launch early next year.  It pays to be always WISE and INFORMED!
