Pros

Has a free fall sensor that tells the hard drive to park the reader head in the case of sudden movements or falls, good to see Acer did not skim on essential business notebook features

1 agrees

Uses a lower powered P series processor, as a result it provides up to 6hrs of battery time which is excellent for a 15.4" notebook

1 agrees

Offers plenty of ram and storage, more than enough for business users with basic processing needs

Cons

Glossy display, poor for business users, unusable in daylight and reflections adds fatigue during long hours of usage

1 agrees

Graphics performance (or the lack of) is sacrificed for battery life, don't expect to run any modern games

1 agrees

Does not inherit the ergonomic curved keyboard from previous Travelmate models

1 agrees

Low resolution display, 1440x900 is a better option for what is supposed to be a business notebook, more screen estate for documents

The Acer TravelMate 6593 is a notebook intended for business use, in the upper mid-range of Acer's lineup, and comes in two different versions. One of the main features of the 6593 is that it is supposed to be both secure and robust. Its security features include fingerprint reader, BIOS passwords for hard drive access, and a slot for a Kensington lock. The case is made out of magnesium alloys and is supposed to be durable and shock resistant. Both models have an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with slight variations - see below for details - and the processor is the only difference between the two. They both have 250GB SATA hard drives, Super-Multi optical drives, Intel's Graphics Media Aceelerator 4500MHD graphics processor, and 2GB of DDR3 SDRAM. They also have built-in Wi-Fi adapters and gigabit ethernet ports. For operating systems, they both include Windows Vista Business.
