The Aspire R 15 is a very flexible laptop. You can bring this to your work and it will surely give out an outstanding performance. This laptop is adjustable since it is a 2 in 1 laptop It such a pleasant laptop to use thanks to it’s comfortable keyboard and it’s clear looking HD looking display. It’s a real solid 2 in 1 laptop design. There are some flaws like it’s hard drive which is a bit slow and I wish that the charge on this laptop last longer. If you are tagging this laptop wherever you are going, be sure you bring it’s charger. For a budget of $650 you are still getting your money’s worth. The Aspire R 15 weighs 4.8 pounds. The Aspire R 15 15 inch design is as heavy as the average 15 inch laptops. The R 15 isn’t like the ordinary 15 inch laptop because it has a rotating hinge. This allow the laptop to fold back it’s display in to a full 360 degrees and it turns it to a big tablet.
You can use the tablet form especially when you are using it for presentations. This is because it can be folded like a tent and you can use the touch display screen much easier. It really makes it convenient when presentations are made to a small group. On the right side you will see a HDMI video out port, 2 USB 3.0 ports and one USB-C port. On the right there is another USB 2.0 pot and an SD card reader. If you want to do intensive work, this 2 in 1 laptop/tablet is perfect for the job. The screen has a 1920 x 1080 panel that looks fabulous. It brings out more scintillating colors and sharper looking text. It’s quite bright because it averages 310 nits of brightness. This exceeds the standard 245 nits average. It has a glossy display that can be a bit glaring when you are using it outdoors. The keyboard gives you a pleasant typing experience. It has backlighting for the whole keyboard and this is a welcome experience when you are typing in dimly lit areas. I personally do not like the battery’s lifespan. It can run for only 5 hours and then you will have to recharge it. This is just a little bit of a setback. The audio sounds good and clear.
Performance wise, The Acer Aspire R 15 is really fast, especially if you are doing ordinary tasks. If you are used to multitasking, this can be the right 2 in 1 laptop/ tablet that you will need. The base model has a Core 15 processor, 8 GB of RAM, 1TB 5,400 hard drive. The added 1TB is a power booster. This will cost $650. The upgraded model has a Core i7 processor and 12 GB of RAM. All other specs are the same as of the base model. This will cost $849. For me the base model is good enough and this will suit the needs of most users.
