Acer has a lot of new devices to show at this year's trading show that takes place in Berlin starting on September 2. One of them is the industry's first convertible Chromebook with a 13.3-inch display. Simply dubbed Acer Chromebook R13, it features a 360-degree hinge design that provides four usage modes, excellent battery life, and Acer also promises to offer support for Android apps via the Google Play Store.

As most convertibles currently on the market, the Chromebook R13 can be used in laptop, pad, display, or tent mode. Its specs include a MediaTek M8173C CorePilot quad-core processor, 2x2 MIMO 802.11ac wireless and USB Type-C connectivity, as well as USB 3.0, HDMI, and Bluetooth 4.0. The Chromebook R13 will hit the market with 4 GB RAM and 16 GB, 32 GB, or 64 GB of eMMC internal storage.

Weighing less than 3.3 pounds, this convertible has 12.83X8.98X0.61 inches and an autonomy of up to 12 hours. In the US, the prices will start at $399 USD and the launch is expected for October. Until then, the Acer Chromebook R13 can be spotted at Acer's IFA 2016 booth.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
