Acer announced yesterday that its Aspire R13 family of convertible notebooks has been chosen a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree. According to Vice President of Acer Global Marketing & Branding, Maarten Schellekens, "The Aspire R 13 combines intelligent construction and smart features that enhance work and play.  It’s the perfect notebook for those who don’t want to give up a traditional notebook design but want more options and flexibility."

Acer Aspire R13 convertibles feature Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, up to 8 GB of memory and 1 TB SSD storage with RAID 0 support. The 13.3-inch touchscreen is protected by a sheet of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and, depending on the model, it offers Full HD or WQHD resolution. An optional Acer Active Pen can be acquired to ease drawing, creation of digital content and collaboration. This accessory works with Acer Hover Access, an exclusive pen-enabled app which is pre-installed on all models.

The Acer Aspire R13 family comes loaded with Windows 8.1 and starts at $899.99 USD (Intel Core i5-4210U, Full HD display, 8 GB RAM, and 256 GB SSD). For more information about the 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honorees program and the Aspire R13 convertibles, please check the press release.

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.
