After spending time with the Acer Aspire R 13, we are impressed by the Ezel Aero Hinge that enables the R 13 to function in six different modes. You can tell Acer focused on the details of this hinge and the overall design engineering of the machine. These little details make a big difference in how the different modes feel and function.

With a better keyboard, this machine would serve so many different needs. However, people who type for a living or who do a lot of typing for their personal use will want to look at another system. High end gamers will need dedicated graphics, something this machine doesn’t give them. However, most people will think this machine gives them enough power for the average tasks, for entertainment and even some light pro-level media creation purposes.

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.
