Acer has a lot of devices to show at this year's IFA trading show in Berlin and one of them is the new Aspire R 13 convertible that has been updated "for a faster, more productive, and versatile user experience." Its highlights include Windows 10, Qualcomm WiFi with MU-MIMO technology, as well as 6th generation Intel Core processors.

The new Acer Aspire R 13 (R7-372T) has a U-frame structure made made of die-casted magnesium-alloys that "enhances stiffness and is infinitively adaptive" and features the innovative Ezel Aero Hinge to ease transition between modes. It supports Thunderbolt 3 and can use two SSDs in a RAID-0 setup to deliver massive data throughput speeds.

Detailed specs are not available yet, but the new Aspire R 13 will hit North America next month starting at $899 USD. As usual, prices and availability may vary by region. For more details, please check the press release below.

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.
