Acer launched the Travelmate B115 notebook in Europe earlier this year, and now the company is bringing a version of the 11.6 inch portable notebook to North America.

The Acer TravelMate B115 is now available in the US for around $380, and in Canada for around $440.

The laptop features an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel touchscreen display, an Intel Celeron N2940 Bay Trail processor, 4GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive, a USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 2.0 ports, a 720p webcam, HDMI output, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.

Acer says the laptop should offer up to 10 hours of battery life. Oh yeah, and the system is fanless. That doesn’t mean nobody likes the laptop, it means that it uses silent, passive cooling rather than a noisy fan.

The laptop measures less than an inch thick and weighs about 2.9 pounds.

Acer offers models with solid state storage and faster Intel Pentium processors in other markets. But if you want to upgrade the North American version of the TravelMate B115, Acer does say the laptop can support up to 8GB of RAM.

You can pick up the Acer TravelMate B115 from TigerDirect or CDW for $380, Newegg also has the laptop in stock for $382.

  1. How much cheaper does the non-touch version usually go for? Touch on a notebook (ie. non-hybrid) isn’t that useful to me.

  2. I’ve been looking at buying one of these but it seems the reviews on JD here in China say battery life is close to around 7 hours, and according to JD you cannot upgrade the hard drive……they don’t say why though – the B115 is much thinner than the B113 so I wonder if the construction makes it impossible to get to the HDD without voiding the warranty.

    1. If that’s true then it would be a deal breaker if I can’t replace the HDD with an SSD.

      1. I agree, some of the reviews said the build quality and screen weren’t so great – but I don’t know what they are comparing it with. I’m waiting for some reviews in the US to go up before I make the decision to buy, hopefully the hard drive is exchangeable.

  3. How does this compare with an Acer 1810t (ie. performance, upgradeabiltiy, etc.)? I got it for $350 in 2010.

    1. Not much different. Single threaded performance would be very similar. Unless you’re doing something that actually fully uses more than 2 cores and/or really want a fanless notebook then you’re better off just staying with the Acer 1810t.

    2. The Acer 1810 was sold in most markets with either a Core 2 Duo SU7300 or the only slightly slower Celeron SU2300, so i picked a CPU comparison between all 3 for you. Single thread is pretty much on par, but Multithreaded aswell as Video Performance should be noticably better.

      Here you go: https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare.php?cmp%5B%5D=2356&cmp%5B%5D=595&cmp%5B%5D=600

      don’t know why the disqus comments don’t like the link as is, but if you copy the normal text at the end of the link it should still give you the comparison
