Reviews for the Acer Aspire R3-471T-77HT
Source: PC Mag
The Acer Aspire R 14 (R3-471T-77HT) will certainly last all day and into the night on battery power. It's also a very good performer on our benchmark tests, even if its margin of victory is slight. It's therefore unfortunate that the rest of the system is so lackluster. Lots of little stumbles, like the mass of bloatware, loud touchpad, lack of Bluetooth and 5GHz Wi-Fi, and fuzzy, low-resolution screen keep the Aspire R 14 from earning a higher score. While $230 more expensive, the HP Spectre x360 13t (13-4003) holds on as our Editors' Choice midrange convertible-hybrid laptop because it has a clearer IPS screen with 1080p HD native resolution, much less bloatware, and better connectivity, including 802.11ac.

CommentIntel HD Graphics 5500: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in the Core processors of the Broadwell U-series (15 W TDP).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. 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.
5500U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
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.
60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
