Acer TravelMate P6 (TMP614-52) – Top 5 Pros and Cons

You can do a lot worse with a kilogram. What Acer has accomplished with the TravelMate P6 (TMP614-52) is to offer a very capable business notebook with the design and style to match, weighing only one kilogram.

Powering the machine is the Tiger Lake U-series, with the TravelMate receiving the extra special Intel Evo-platform, which on paper comes with higher stability and security. Additionally, you get some vPro enhancements, another suite of Intel technologies specifically designed for the enterprise world.

Today, we present you with LaptopMedia’s top 5 picks about the Acer TravelMate P6 (TMP614-52).

Acer TravelMate P6 (TMP614-52): Full Specs / In-depth Review

4 reasons to BUY the Acer TravelMate P6 (TMP614-52)

1. Design and build quality

In order to keep low weight and profile, the laptop resorts to using aluminum alloy. This also has the added benefit of making the laptop decently durable. As for the design, Acer brings a touch of minimalism, with a very flat lid with sharp edges and rounded corners, along with a bottom panel with sloping edges, resulting in a very cookie-cutter appearance. There’s also very little branding, with only a tiny Acer logo on the upper right corner of the lid.

2. I/O

There’s pretty good I/O coverage, despite the small dimensions. We see two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a single USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 2) port, an HDMI port, a MicroSD card reader, a SIMcard tray, and a 3.5 mm audio jack.

3. Display quality

Acer heavily advertised the full sRGB coverage of the display, and we are happy it wasn’t all talk. The 14-inch FHD+ IPS display comes with comfortable viewing angles, a max brightness of 364 nits (cd/m2) in the middle of the screen, and 355 nits (cd/m2) average across the surface with a maximum deviation of 7%. The contrast ratio is also surprisingly high – 1870:1. The display covers 99% of the sRGB gamut, while also delivering pretty good accuracy with our Design and Gaming profile, lowering its dE value to 1.2 from 3.0. We are glad to see that there’s also 0 PWM usage across all brightness levels.

Here are the results of our accuracy test with the stock settings (left) and with our profile applied (right).

In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.


Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

4. Battery life

Despite the small chassis, Acer managed to put a 56Wh battery unit inside, which lasts for 16 hours and 40 minutes of Web browsing, or 12 hours and 23 minutes of video playback. Now, we conduct the battery tests with the Windows Better performance setting turned on, screen brightness adjusted to 120 nits, and all other programs turned off except for the one we are testing the notebook with.

1 reason NOT to buy the Acer TravelMate P6 (TMP614-52)

1. Upgradeability

Upgradeability is often looked over when it comes to smaller products, and such is the case here. We have no RAM slots, but at least the notebook uses quad-channel memory, which should speed up your iGPU, whose performance is often tied to the RAM that you have. In terms of storage, we only have a single M.2 PCIe x4 slot.

Here is our detailed teardown video, which shows how to access the available SSD drive.
