Acer has launched Enduro line of rugged notebooks and tablets. A series of Enduro tablets will also be available for retail, warehouse and manufacturing usage scenarios.
Acer Enduro N7 Rugged Notebook
The Acer Enduro N7 is a rugged notebook constructed with shock-absorbent materials to offer the reliability needed by first responders, field and industrial manufacturing workers while on the job. MIL-810G and IP65 certified, the device has been engineered to withstand drops onto the hardest flooring and to resist the ingress of dust and water. This durability makes the device suitable for work, hot or cold, and its 700-nit, 14-inch FHD screen offers excellent visibility whether inside or outside. For those working long days, the Enduro N7 comes with dual batteries: one hot-swappable battery with a long 10-hour life and another built-in bridge battery.
A quad-core 8th Gen Intel Core i5 CPU offers enough power to smoothly navigate between several different applications and work on multiple tasks at the same time. The Enduro N7 is also very secure: hardware-level Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 checks for any signs of intrusion during startup and the Acer Enduro Manageability Suite (AEMS) serves to help protect the device while also making it easy to deploy services or system configurations across many devices. A fingerprint sensor supports more secure logins through Windows Hello.
Acer Enduro N3 Rugged Notebook
The Acer Enduro N3 strikes a balance between durability and portability, making it ideal for users who rotate between several worksites such as architects, project inspectors, event managers, agricultural plant personnel or event lovers. The Enduro N3 was specially engineered to be resistant to drops and water, achieving MIL-STD 810G and IP53 certifications, while maintaining a thin-and-light frame of just 24.85 mm (0.98 in) at 1.985 kg (4.37 lb). Some of these features include reinforced corners for drops, Corning Gorilla Glass to protect the display from water and the unique water-resistant Aquafan.
For protection against cyber threats technology like Discrete Trusted Platform Module, AEMS, and password-protected HDDs are employed. It also comes with 13-hour long battery life. The Enduro N3 boasts a 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and 32 GB of DDR4 RAM, giving it reliable performance, with an optional NVIDIA GeForce MX230 discrete GPU and 512 GB PCle Gen3 NVMe SSD for those with exceptionally heavy workloads.
Acer Enduro Management Suite (AEMS)
The Acer Enduro Management Suite (AEMS) is a system designed to streamline the management of large quantities of devices, helping to keep existing devices more secure and speed up the process of rolling new ones out. The AEMS console enables a manager to remotely interact with AEMS-enabled devices in the following ways:
– Programmable physical keys: AEMS-enabled tablets and notebook computers include physical keys, located next to the power button, which will automatically launch a designated application upon keypress.
– I/O Control: The ability to remotely enable/disable access to I/O ports. Cameras and barcode scanners may also be enabled or disabled.
– Device Monitor: Lists and exports information for all devices being managed, including information about each individual device’s system, hardware, software and any applied hotfixes.
– Remote Deployment: Any necessary applications, BIOS changes or Windows updates can be pushed out and deployed remotely.
