Review: Acer Aspire R11

The Acer Aspire R11 is one of the two in one mid range laptops with pretty cool design and a price tag that is on the lower side. This one offers four modes for viewing the content displayed on the laptop. The price of the laptop is around $350 and it comes with 11-inch screen.

The design of the laptop in on the similar lines of the other budget laptops of the company. The plastic chassis which is covering the back and the top of the laptop has a matte light blue colour which is really gorgeous and attractive. The material is claimed by the company to be scratch resistant and actually when the previous models were tested there were no scratch or blemish found.

The keyboard has been designed on the traditional lines and it gives comfort to the users. The smudge free aluminium casing of the keyboard is really appealing. But the problem is with the direction keys and the keys on the top-line. They are really very small and whenever you are playing games or writing anything at fast pace then you need to take care a lot otherwise there is high chance of striking the wrong key.

The display of the laptop is around 11.6 inches and having a Standard high definition display quality. The display has a problem that it is having little more glaring features but the resolution is 1366 x 768 which is quite normal HD quality. The main catch of this laptop is the viewing modes it is having.

There are four viewing modes which are notebook, display, tent and the pad. The hinge which is there to be used for navigating between the viewing modes is little bit stiff and it will require little strength to open and fix it. The laptop weighs around 1.58 Kg which is little heavier than its competitions and hardly anyone would like to use such a heavy tab or a pad. Moreover, the display is also having normal HD quality which may or may not excite most of the people.

The battery life of the laptop can be maximum of 8 hours though normally it runs for 5-6 hours without charging. The processor of the laptop is of Intel Pentium range and the graphics are also supported by the Intel HD. The navigation of the device is really smooth and efficient though there is little cinch in switching between web contents and the documents which are locally stored.

The device is great if you consider the looks and the budget but the features are not that much appealing. Especially the heaviness and the mediocre HD display are going to make you think of some other device.

Price: $350
