Reviews for the Acer Aspire R7-371T-50ZE
Acer has produced some winning laptops as of late, including its R 11 Chromebook, and the R 13 is no exception. This laptop has a very unique design that will turn heads, but it's not just about looks -- the design makes the laptop functional in a way that a traditional laptop isn't, arguably more functional that the popular fold-all-the-way back displays. If you find yourself unable to find the perfect chair height/screen angle for your desk, the R 13 is a godsend.

The Acer Aspire R 13 (R7-371T-50ZE) has a unique and versatile hinge that sets it apart from the other convertible-hybrid laptops on the market. Its battery life in testing is one of the longest we've seen on any Windows hybrid, including the detachable tablets. And its touch screen is bright and has wide viewing angles. Still, the HP Spectre x360 13t (13-4003) remains our Editors' Choice for midrange convertible-hybrid laptops thanks to its wider port selection, larger touchpad, and lack of bloatware. That said, the Aspire R 13's excellent battery life is a selling point, so if the Ezel-hinge design appeals to you, it's a midrange convertible-hybrid laptop worth considering.
