Top-Class Learning Tools and All-day Power

Larger Screen Promotes Better Collaboration
The larger screen size gives students the screen space they need for a wider perspective as they learn. Working together on projects is easier on a wide 14-inch FHD3 display, and thanks to the laptop’s 180-degree hinge, the screen can lie flat for content sharing and easy collaboration with classmates.

Compliant with the stringent US Military Standard (MIL-STD 810G), it can survive extreme temperatures, bad weather, drops from up to 122 cm, bumps and knocks as well as crowds of children.
Reliable connectivity is essential for connected learning and the Acer TravelMate B114-21 comes with 802.11ac wireless and an RJ-45 Ethernet port to keep students connected. It also offers plenty of options to connect easily with peripherals such as screens, TVs and projectors and has a full selection of ports, including 1x HDMI, 1x USB 3.1 Gen1, 2x USB 2.0 and an SD card reader.
