In fact, Acer says these new models have been engineered to meet MIL-STD 810H specifications, meaning they can withstand real-life situations such as drops, humid environments, and pesky water spills.

There’s business-grade security and productivity on offer too, with these Microsoft Secured-core PCs built to deliver security down to the firmware level, as well as a SecureBio fingerprint reader and IR camera with privacy shutter with support for Windows Hello.

Additionally, the new models all offer advanced connectivity with Wi-Fi 6 and optional LTE support for immediate connectivity to local networks.

Rolling out from Q3, the new P4 comes in 14- and 16-inch variants, while the Spin P4 arrives with a 14-inch screen. All models will be available with either the 12th Gen Intel Core i7 vPro or AMD Ryzen 7 PRO processors, as well as a WUXGA (1920 x 1200) IPS narrow-bezel display.

With the hybrid workforce in mind, Acer says these new models will provide high-quality video conference performance, complete with AI-powered noise reduction microphones, four upward speakers, and built-in DTS Audio for higher quality, distortion-free audio.

With the convertible Spin P4, users will also get an anti-glare display which can be rotated 360 degrees, scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass screen and touchpad, as well as support for an AES 1.0 stylus.

For those that opt for the Ryzen variants of these laptops, Microsoft’s Pluton hardware security technology has been integrated directly into the processor to ensure system integrity of the device and ongoing protection for identities, data, and applications.

Prices are listed as $1,099 (€999 across EMEA, £949 in the UK) for the P4 models and $1,199 (€1,099, £1,099) for the Spin P4. Buyers in EMEA will be able to get their hands on the AMD models for €949 and €1,049, respectively.

Powered by Intel’s 12th Gen Core i7 vPro chips, the device features a 180-degree hinge, MIL-STD 810H durability, fingerprint reader, IR camera, as well as Windows Hello support. Additionally, the laptop comes with an OceanGlass touchpad, made with ocean-bound plastic and a UV texture layer designed to provide a glass-like tactile feeling.

Also shipping in Q3, the P2 represents a more affordable entry into the range at $899 (€799, £649).
