Reviews for the Acer Aspire R14 R5-471T-52EE
And yes, Acer’s Aspire R 14 still proves itself as a decent little halfway point for people not convinced that 13 inch laptops are big enough and yet have realised that most 15 inch computers are rubbish. At that point, the Acer Aspire R 14 serves a decent option, because you get the guts of a 13 inch in the body of something a little larger, with a battery to match. If the battery is the big deal and you tend to do a lot of work, Acer’s R 14 is definitely worth a look, provided you can deal with that screen.

The latest Acer Aspire R 14 is a reasonably priced convertible-hybrid laptop with a lot going for it. Its improvements over its last iteration include a large 1080p HD touch screen, forward-looking technology like a USB-C port, dual-band Wi-Fi, a powerful sixth-generation Intel Core i5 processor, and strong battery life, all at a really good price for a midrange laptop. It has a larger screen, better battery life, and better 3D performance than the HP Spectre x360 13t (13-4003), our former Editors' Choice, for $300 less. True, the Aspire R 14 is slightly larger and heavier than the HP Spectre x360, but not prohibitively so. As such, the Aspire R 14 is our Editors' Choice for midrange convertible-hybrid laptops.

Like buying a laptop, with the myriad combinations of processors, screens, storage schemes, and more, 2-in-1 hybrids aren’t easy to distinguish and select among. Unlike in their early days, when they tended to exact a premium, their prices and configurations are splintering into shards fine enough that spending a little extra to get a nicer item is almost always an option for most models.
