Acer Chromebook R11: Fully flexible Chromebook packs IPS screen on a budget

 

We've seen a dozen Chromebooks and it's fair to say few have ever impressed us. Why? Because of poor screen choices with limited angles of view.

Acer Chromebook R11 review

 

360-degree flips all day long

Convertible ; Attractively minimalist ; Good battery life

Terrible trackpad ; HD-only screen

The Acer Chromebook R11's minimalist design may not be the sexiest, but that exterior hides a deceptively capable machine that'll last all day. Oh, and it can flip 360-degrees into a tablet. No big deal.

Acer Chromebook R11 review

 

A Chromebook's job is difficult. It has to be inexpensive, which inevitably means you can't expect too much. But it also needs to stand out in a market that's crowded by dirt cheap competition.

Acer's Chromebook R 11 is an inexpensive tablet-laptop hybrid, coupling the simplicity of Google's Chrome OS with a 360-degree hinge and touchscreen.

Unfortunately, Chrome OS isn't optimized for touch, and navigating around the browser with your finger can be tricky. There aren't as many apps available for Google's Chrome OS as you'll find on Microsoft's Windows or Apple's OS X.

Acer's Chromebook R 11 has a neat hybrid design and the price is right, but simpler, non-touch devices offer better value.

Acer Chromebook R11 review: Chromebooks don’t get much better than this

 

Acer spices up the Chromebook formula with a super-flexible hinge and a vibrant touchscreen – and it's a solid effort

All things told, though, I like the Acer Chromebook R11. I’ve always been a fan of the Chromebook way of doing things – like most people, my digital life is lived almost entirely in a browser these days – and Acer’s decision to add in a welcome bit of...

  (Rating Hidden)

The Acer Chromebook R11 wants to have its cake and eat it - it features a 360-degree hinge to turn it from laptop to tablet. To be ranked among the finest Chromebooks around, it needs to have an enduring battery and ergonomic design to go with its...

Acer Chromebook R11 [REVIEW]

 

The Acer Chromebook R11 is a great cheap laptop that converts into at tablet, even if it does have some compromises.

Perfect form factor for almost everything ; Excellent keyboard and trackpad ; Great low price

Mediocre display ; A slowpoke when pushed hard ; Heavier than a lot of 13-inch Ultrabooks ; No real customization options

Even with its fair share of compromises, the Acer Chromebook R11 is a great laptop and tablet hybrid on the cheap.

Acer Chromebook R 11 (CB5-132T-C1LK)

 

With solid build quality, a versatile convertible design, an IPS touch screen, full-size media ports, and strong performance, the Acer Chromebook R 11 still manages a very affordable price.

Nice price. Sturdy, convertible design. Intel Celeron processor and 4GB of memory provide speedy performance. Full-size ports. 32GB solid-state drive (SSD). Long battery life.

Key travel feels short.

Conclusion The Acer Chromebook R 11 is an all-around impressive convertible-hybrid Chrome OS system, offering solid construction, speedy components, and a good array of features at a low price. It rates a half-point lower than the Asus Chromebook Flip,...

Acer's Chromebook R 11 has a touchscreen hybrid design at a budget price.

 

If Chrome OS has piqued your interest, the Acer Chromebook R 11's hybrid design and budget price earn it a spot on our short list.
