Reviews for the Acer Chromebook R13 CB5-312T-K8Z9

Acer Chromebook R 13 Review: Is It Good for Business?
Source: Business News Daily English
Even without the ability to run Android apps, Acer's Chromebook R 13 would be one of the nicer models available. Workers will appreciate its comfy keyboard and long battery life, not to mention its flexible 2-in-1 design.

The Acer Chromebook R13 is a capable Chromebook that won't break the bank, but if your needs are simple there are many other, more affordable laptops worth scoping out.

Review: Acer Chromebook R 13 -- a Chromebook with class
Source: Computerworld.com English
The Acer Chromebook R 13 is an excellent example of a solid, mid-level system. It's got a very good display, great battery life, a comfortable keyboard, and (because it has 4GB of RAM) enough power to run a video or a reasonable number of tabs without pausing for breath. Not to mention its touch screen, moveable display and ability to use Android apps. If you're shopping for a Chromebook, this would definitely be one to consider.

Acer Chromebook R13 Review
Source: Chrome Unboxed English
Would you be happy with your purchase if you bought one? I can confidently say yes to that. The R13 is a beautiful, well-built machine for a very good price. The overall look is way beyond its pricetag and its performance is plenty for most users. A great screen, keyboard and trackpad round out a very solid offering from Acer. I suspect as Android shows up soon on this device, it will be another top seller in Acer’s growing catalog of Chromebooks.

Acer Chromebook R13 review: The next generation of Chromebooks is here
Source: Android Central English
The few negatives aren't really negative. The display could be better, but it's fine the way it is and I have no real complaints outside of the glossy surface. I'd love to have the same keyboard and trackpad experience on the R13 that the Chromebook Pixel gives me, but I wouldn't expect it at this price.

80% Acer Chromebook R 13 Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Acer Chromebook R 13 is a very good piece of hardware for the price, and the combination of Android emulation and a long-lasting battery makes this convertible a seriously compelling option. Productivity users or heavy multitaskers should consider a Chromebook with a more powerful processor, such as the Lenovo ThinkPad 13 Chromebook or the Dell Chromebook 13. However, if you want a convertible Chromebook for a great price, the Chromebook R 13 is your best choice.

Imagination PowerVR GX6250: 2 cluster graphics chip integrated in ARM SoC (e.g. used in the MediaTek MT8173)

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

MT8173: ARM based quad-core SoC (2x Cortex-A72, 2x Cortex-A53) for tablets» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.30":

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.


1.5 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


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.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
