80% Acer Aspire R 15 Review: Is It Good for Business?
Source: Business News Daily English
A comfortable keyboard, solid performance and a sharp display — that's what you get from Acer's Aspire R 15, all for a super-affordable $649. Plus, its versatile folding design is genuinely useful. Frequent travelers will wish it lasted longer on a charge, but then again, its closest rivals don't last that much longer.

Most laptops that cost $1,000 don't have screens that can display 100 percent of the sRGB color gamut, but the R 15's screen is that vibrant, and it starts at $649. Not only does the sleek Acer Aspire R 15 offer eye-popping color output, but it also delivers a very comfortable keyboard, rich audio, a premium bend-back design and solid performance.

70% Acer Aspire R 15 Review: A Well-Rounded 2-in-1
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The one area where device noticeably falls flat is raw computing power. If you’re looking for cutting-edge performance you’d be better served by the Dell Inspiron 7000 15 or Lenovo Ideapad Y700. However, if you’re looking for the complete package with the added utility of a 360-degree hinge display, this Acer Aspire 2-in-1 is a tough act to beat.

Acer Aspire R15 R5-571TG-50RF

2-in-1 convertibles are increasingly popular and the Acer Aspire R15 is one such laptop to look out for. Encased in a gray aluminium frame, the Aspire 15 is both stealth-looking and solidly built. This certainly appeals professionals who seek for a premium-looking laptop. Its 360-degree hinge allows the device to be fully bent back to be used as a massive tablet. Measuring at 2.01 cm (0.79 inch) thick, it is thinner compared to its rivals from HP and Lenovo. Weighing at 2.2 kg, it is nonetheless not idyllic to use the R15 while standing. It boasts a display screen of 15.6” screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Thanks to the IPS technology, colors appear consistent and accurate from wide viewing angles. Visuals appear bright and vibrant albeit the display tends to be highly reflective. Colors and brightness are optimized with Acer Color Intelligence, a built-in software provided by Acer. The full-sized, backlit keyboard allows for fast and natural typing. It is also decked with a full-sized numeric keypad. Its touchpad is intuitive, which makes scrolling and navigation a smooth operation. Sound quality is crisp and clear as it is built in with two speakers and a subwoofer. It is also enhanced with Dolby Audio with an array of sound settings. Performance-wise, it is powered by the 6th generation Intel Core i5-6200U processor. This device is clearly built for mid-range performance with 8 GB of RAM and a 1 TB HDD. With graphics rendered by Intel HD Graphics 520, its performance in running graphic-intensive application ranks lower than that of equivalent models from Toshiba and Dell, which may include external graphic cards. Heavy multi-taskers can nevertheless opt for an advanced configuration with dual-core i7 processor and a dedicated GPU. The R15’s thermal airflow cooling system controls heat dissipation efficiently, ensuring that it stays cool and runs smoothly. Battery life is more than average as Acer claimed that it clocks more than 9 hours. This laptop is also decked with an array of connectivity options which includes four USB ports, an HDMI port, a DisplayPort, and a media card reader. Networking is supported by both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. 2×2 MIMO and MU-MIMO, which offers solid and stable wireless connectivity, makes up for the lack of an Ethernet port. There are many USB to Ethernet dongles available in the market if it is necessary. The integrated HD webcam delivers impressive resolution and quality. To top it off, it comes pre-installed with the latest Windows 10 Home 64-bit. Overall, the R15 is a well-rounded machine, which is also attractively priced. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Comment

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series).With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce 940MX: Mid-range laptop graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture.

The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

6500U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.Intel Core i3:
