                    Acer Aspire R 13 (R7-371T) review – an odd 13 inch convertible
                    The Aspire R 13 fits in a narrow niche. On one hand it offers a nice display with pen support, fast hardware and decent battery life, but on the other it's priced and advertised as a premium convertible, although its size, weight and choice inFull Review

                    But give the company its due: When the design team has a good day, it produces some excellent laptops. A prime example is the Aspire R 13, a fast ultrabook with long run time and a versatile dual-hinge mount that lets you rotate and re-orient theFull Review

                    In the end, I was surprised by the Acer Aspire R13, but it was definitely a pleasant surprise. The new form-factor works very well in my opinion, and honestly gave me a new preference for laptop use with Ezel mode. This is a laptop you shouldFull Review

                    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 likeFull Review
