Acer has added to its notebook range with the launch of a “budget” notebook, the TravelMate 2000, in the region. The company is pitching the model as delivering “a balance between performance and functionality at a competitive price” and sees it as ideal for the small office home office (SOHO) user. “There is an intense demand in the Middle East SOHO market for a well-balanced solid notebook that can be used as a work and entertainment tool providing improved productivity at an affordable price,” said Graham Braum, business development manager, notebooks, for Acer Middle East. “First-time notebook users are looking for a blend between performance and connectivity and we expect the TravelMate 2000 series to be one of our biggest value offerings during 2004.” Although the company says the TravelMate 2000 will push mobile computing in the region, there’s no sign that the product will ship with Centrino technology. The TravelMate 2000 is powered by Intel’s Celeron processor, and is available in a range of configurations, starting with a 30GB hard disk.
