Look and Design Acer TravelMate X349-G2-M
The slate grey aluminum body has a very business-appropriate look to it, however, it may appear to be a little too drab for some. The best part is that the body does not attract a lot of fingerprints and there is ample protection around it. The laptop measures 17.95mm in thickness and weigh a comfortable 1.55kg. The 14-inch display is just perfect for doing office work. Acer also offers a Full HD IPS panel, which is definitely a plus. You can tilt the display back 180 degrees if required and the hinge provides good torsion at any angle. Overall the look is much better than your average laptop, it seems sturdy, the size is just about right and there are no unnecessary wobbles which make working difficult.
