Reviews for the Acer Aspire R3-131T
A practical hybrid at an attractive price, but its difficulties handling Windows 10 means you’re better off looking elsewhere.

My one gripe is the lack of immediacy once you click or touch an icon you get the chance think it has not worked before things start to occur. However for a notebook/tablet it’s a good price.

The Acer Aspire R11 makes a decent little low-cost, portable laptop with a fanless design, and it offers performance that’s a little better than most systems you would have been able to find a year ago in this price range. The Pentium N3700 Braswell chip offers a bit of a performance boost over the Bay Trail chips it replaces, and the notebook offers decent battery life, fast WiFi connection speeds.

The Acer Aspire R11 multi-form laptop benefits from being that bit bigger than something like the older Acer Switch 10. It's much more comfortable to use for a good few hours of typing, browsing, or whatever needs doing. But despite this, Acer has really dropped the ball with the screen. The R11's poor viewing angles feel entirely mis-matched for a product designed with a 360-degree hinge.

The Aspire R11 is overall a great machine for the little money you'd be paying for it. It offers speedy Braswell hardware and long battery life in a sturdy built shell. It's also a 2-in-1. And yes, corners were cut with the panel or keyboard quality, among others, but for $249 you won't find a better similar device right now.
