Reviews for the Acer Aspire R7-371T-55DJ
The Acer Aspire R13 is an excellent laptop, but it may not the best choice for every consumer. This notebook is well built, but the display lid can be difficult to grasp, and the machine is noticeably heavier than many of its Intel Core M counterparts. The Aspire R13 also isn’t the greatest when it comes to enjoying multimedia content. The display’s color accuracy is good, but it wasn’t as bright as we would have liked and the audio quality from the built-in speakers was inconsistent.

Model: The Acer Aspire R7-371T-55DJ is designed for high performance and flexible usage. It is convertible, versatile and well-built according to Acer, but the display lid looks to be a little difficult to get used to. The convertible is suitable for business users who are looking for a compact, lightweight and well-built laptop. It comes with Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit edition, a 2.7 GHZ Intel Core i5 4210U processor, 8 GB of DDR3 RAM, an Intel HD Graphics 4400, and a 256 GB Solid State Drive. Its 13.3 inch Full HD IPS screen has pleasant viewing angles and supports multi-touch inputs. Thanks to Gorilla Glass 3, it is scratch resistant and its screen coating effectively reduces reflections, which makes it also suitable for outdoor usage.
The backlit Chiclet keyboard is comfortable to type on and pleasantly quiet and the touchpad is quite responsive. As Acer does not rely on LED, the backlight is not too bright. The Aspire R7 does not have a DVD burner due to its thickness, but a card reader is included. The laptop comes with two USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI port, a headphone jack, a microphone jack and an HD webcam. It has a convenient weight of 1.47 kg and the battery life is up to 7 hours as promised by Acer and it can last up to 15 hours with minimum brightness as measured in one of the tests.
