Acer Aspire R13

 

Acer's latest hybrid is a new twist on the vertical flipping screen type of device that we first saw with the Dell Inspiron Duo. A largely neglected format, instead of a central pivot point like on hybrids of old, or a 360 degree screen hinge like on...

Slimmer and lighter than the competition ; High-resolution screen with good image quality ; Decent battery life and performance levels

Ezel hinge impacts looks and adds little ; Poor, cramped keyboard ; Awkwardly wide base

Acer Aspire R13 review

 

Transforming the Ultrabook category with six different form factors

Sleek, premium design ; Six different usage modes ; Crisp WQHD display upgrade

Large footprint ; Runs hot ; Fans stay on almost all the time

With similar power, battery life and slimness as competing Ultrabooks on the market, what makes the Aspire R13 unique is its Ezel hinge, allowing the notebook to convert into six different usage modes.

Acer Aspire R13 hands-on review

 

We get some hands-on time with Acer's latest Lenovo Yoga rival

The Aspire R13 offers a fresh and innovative design in the Windows 8.1 laptop market and in our short experience with it, we found it fun to use with fast and responsive performance.

Acer Aspire R13 convertible laptop

 

An upright hinge allows this laptop to easily transform into a tablet, but we found issues with other aspects of our review unit

Easy conversion from laptop to tablet ; Full-sized HDMI and SD slot

Screen retention ; Poor touchpad ; Keyboard could be better ; High price

Acer Aspire R13 review

 

Combining ultrabook power and tablet portability, the R13's innovative design is foiled by a mediocre display and finicky touchpad.

Unfortunately, its own design flaws, such as a temperamental mouse and stubborn lid lip, hamper this convertible. Its lack of connectivity will steer away laptop professionals while the mediocre display will keep the R13 from truly replacing a tablet.

Six ways to play with Acer's Aspire R 13

 

Convertible modes can be hyperbolic, but the new hinge on the Acer Aspire R 13 gives more credibility than usual to its claim of six modes of use.

The Acer Aspire R 13 Review: Convertible Notebook With A Twist

 

The world of the convertible notebook has come a long way in just a couple of years, but we seem to have settled in on two basic types of convertible devices. There are the tablet style devices where the display can be removed from the keyboard and...

In the end, I walk away from the Acer Aspire R 13 with the feeling that Acer is trying something new here, but it is not working as well as they had hoped. The design is certainly unique, but the drawbacks overshadow the small gains available. If the R...

Display lacks touch home button for tablet mode; Clunky design; Weak audio quality ; Offering a swivel screen with multiple modes, Acer's R13 is a 2-in-1 that delivers powerful performance in a versatile but clunky design.
