Reviews for the Acer Aspire R11 R3-131T-C122
Cute top-seller. Acer's little 11-inch convertible features a new Braswell CPU and a 360-degree hinge. However, contrary to the manufacturer's touting, the Aspire R11 is not a jack of all trades.

The laptop's speakers use 'paper diaphragm' technology, which is designed to create a minimal amount of distortion when playing high-frequency sounds at maximum volume. We were genuinely impressed with the speakers in our tests; even once we cranked the volume up to 100%, we heard no distortion whatsoever in both music and dialogue, which is a serious feat for such a small laptop. Unsurprisingly, these small speakers still can't handle low-frequency sounds so if you want to hear every explosion and every bass drum beat, you'll need headphones or external speakers.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
