Acer Aspire R13

   The Acer Aspire R13 differs from hybrids and other 2 – in – 1 convertible. Because this laptop has 2 arms that holds the display, it can rotate at mid- point. With 2 arms holding the screen together, it is well-built and stronger than those laptops that have a central pivot style device. The Acer Aspire R13 uses a glass lid that gives it a high quality design .This laptop has a one of a kind hinge screen design that makes it longer and wider and longer than other ultraportable laptops. The Acer Aspire R13 measures 13.54 x 9.07 x 0.71. This ultraportable laptop is also slim looking.  The Ezel hinge can convert this notebook in to 6 different modes that anyone can use. It can be used in these kinds of forms: notebook, Ezel, Stand, Pad, Tent and Display modes. The Acer Aspire R13 has a bright IPS Display no matter what mode it is in. The colors are vibrant and it has good and large viewing angles. The matte dark grey keyboard comes with full sized chiclet keys . The keyboard has backlighting but it’s not too bright. The key travel is something that every user has to deal with. I personally do not like short travels but once you get used to it, you’ll be fine. The trackpad is very convenient to use. On the left side you will find 2 USB ports and a full sized HDMI port. The right side features a memory card slot and a 3rd USB port. The Acer Aspire R13 has stereo speakers that are located on the undercarriage. Acer uses the Dolby Pus Home Theater Speakers and they come out really clear. Acer calls it cinematic surround sound.
    The basic model of the Acer Aspire R13 cost $900 and it features an Intel Core I5-4210U processor, 8 GB, of RAM and a 128GB SSD. The higher model will cost about $1300 and it features an Intel 2.4 dual core Intel CoreI7-5500U, Intel HD 5000 graphics. The memory has 8GB of RAM (DDR3L, 1600MHz). It has 256GB SSD of Storage. The camera is a 720p webcam. The screen is a 13.3 inch WQHD 2560 x 1440 touchscreen.

The Acer Aspire 13 uses a four-cell battery and a Windows 8.1 Operating system. This laptop has been out for almost more than 2 years. Probably, any would be buyer can get a bargain price for this multi-faceted laptop.
    In the PC8 Home test, the Acer Aspire R13 scored 2,258; Work; 2,190. The PCMark Battery Life test it lasted for 3 hours and fifteen minutes. The 3DMark Tests: Fire Strike; it had a score of 656; Cloud Gate 3,716; Sky Diver 2,248. In the Cinebench test, the processor had a score of 26.22 and the fps 207. The tests are still within range but it could have been better. If you like using all of these modes than this might be the notebook meant for you.
