Features

Windows 10 operating system
Windows 10 brings back the Start Menu from Windows 7 and introduces new features, like the Edge Web browser that lets you markup Web pages on your screen.

11.6″ display
Acer ComfyView technology reduces reflection. Typical 1366 x 768 HD resolution. LED backlight.

Intel® Celeron® processor N3160

4GB system memory for basic multitasking
Adequate high-bandwidth RAM to smoothly run multiple applications and browser tabs all at once.

128GB solid state drive (SSD)
While offering less storage space than a hard drive, a flash-based SSD has no moving parts, resulting in faster start-up times and data access, no noise, and reduced heat production and power draw on the battery.

Intel® HD Graphics 400
On-processor graphics with shared video memory provide everyday image quality for Internet use, basic photo editing and casual gaming.

Weighs 3.2 lbs. and measures 0.9″ thin
Ultrathin and ultralight for maximum portability, featuring a smaller screen size and omitting the DVD/CD drive to achieve the compact form factor. 4-cell lithium-ion battery.

Wirelessly transfer photos, music and other media between the desktop and your Bluetooth-enabled cell phone or MP3 player, or connect Bluetooth wireless accessories.

1 USB 3.0 port maximizes the latest high-speed devices

Next-Gen Intel® Wireless-AC connectivity

        • Hi Lisa,

          I can sympathize with your hesitation about receiving eMail from unknown sources.
          You are proving yourself to be an intelligent and well-informed “surfer’; hopefully, part of that stems from reading DCT articles? 😉

          I only wish that my customers were so well-behaved (they know who they are),
          Richard

    • Hi Lisa,

      The eMail address will be from DCT; it might show up as my own at Gmail, too. In any case, there will be a DCT signature at the bottom.

  8. I am terminally ill with cancer and spend hours in waiting rooms of doctors and hospitals, would be great to keep-up with correspondence and other work. Thanks to Acer and DCT for amazing opportunity.

  9. Currently I have an old HP laptop running Windows XP (now very slow!). This Acer give-away by DCT would be a great way to upgrade to the latest technology. Thank you Acer and DCT.

  10. Been fighting prostate cancer that metastasized into my skeletal areas, such as bones. Been fighting this since 2014. This would be a nice gift for my 79th B’day. I would use this laptop to keep all my doctor notes and prescribed treatments.

  11. I would like to win this bad boy so I can stay connected when I’m on the move. I don’t use cell phones and only have a desk top at home. I don’t venture out too often but when I do it would be great to be able to stay connected or have something to do when sitting around in the waiting room at the doctors office.

    What do you mean by a disposable email address? I have had this same yahoo email address for 13 years. I doubt I will throw it away…lol!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win this Acer TravelMate 11.6″ HD Laptop! Happy Memorial day weekend to all! God Bless all who have ever served and are serving now!

  12. Thanks to Acer and DCT for this great opportunity to win such a beaut little laptop.

    I would like to win it so as I can present it to my daughter so she can use it at school like all the rest of her fellow students. Sadly I’m not in a financial position where I can easily afford such an item.

  13. Thanks for the opportunity. Reason I want it: I’m guessing this is faster than my ancient laptop that got 1st gen i3.

  14. A huge thank you to both DCT and Acer for this giveaway. Personally, this laptop would perfectly suit my needs to write papers and essays for school. Once again, a huge thank you and good luck to everyone who has entered!!

  15. Wouldn’t it be fun to WIN a new computer. I have a desktop now, but it is old and giving me a lot of trouble. Sure would love to get notice that I WON!!!
