Acer Aspire R13 in the Test

Acer has designed a very special display Mount for the aspire R13. The convertible exotic white but not only visually to please in the test.

Who wants to lie to a 2-in-1 device, which is equally suitable as notebook and tablet, has usually two options: tablets with attachable keyboard (Detachables) or convertibles, whose screen can be completely turned around the base unit thanks to 360-degree hinge. The former are relatively light and thin, but have design due to weaknesses in the notebook mode. 360-degree solutions are significantly more stable and less mobile. In addition, it is not for everyone, that the keyboard is exposed on the back of the device in tablet mode.

Who finds unconvincing both hybrid varieties, can become friends maybe with the Acer Aspire R13. The trick here: The display is not directly attached to the keypad connected, but laterally in a fold-out, u-shaped bracket on the screen in addition to 180 degrees about its axis can be turned. We have taken the third product generation of aspire R13, Acer has recently published, to the chest.

Display mount: Plenty of light, little shadow

First, the unusual mechanism of convertibles with the exact name of aspire R7 has us of course-372 T 746N interested in. The construction with the double joint is quite fragile at first glance. But this is misleading: the cast magnesium alloy frame of hinge baptized by Acer “Ezel Aero Hinge” is extremely sturdy and rigid. But what’s with the whole thing?

The big advantage is the variability of the concept. The unconventional design allows six modes of use: in addition to the modes of operation of devices with 360-degree hinge (notebook, display, tent – and Tablet mode) the stand mode join (the screen is slightly tilted on the keypad) to work with a stylus and the so-called Ezel mode, where the user attracts the display slightly forwards to himself. This facilitates the combined touch and keyboard shortcuts. Another advantage of the frame construction: In tablet mode the keyboard remains protected, because not the screen is turned completely to the base unit, but only the display part.

All variability is a downer: through the extra frame in conjunction with the big screen is larger than other models in the 13-inch class – especially at the bottom of the aspire R13 was given plenty of space. And with around one and a half kilograms but not necessarily belongs to the ultra mobile lightweights.

Speaking of display: 13.3 inch touchscreen WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) provides a very sharp and bright image. In addition, it reflects significantly less powerful than many other glossy screens. According to the manufacturer, this is due to the special anti-reflective coating. The visually graceful, but very susceptible to fingerprints glass surface in the rear of the display takes some getting.

The easy keeping keyboard there to complain about anything. With the backlit black keys, it can be comfortably and quickly tap. Also points can the aspire R13 with his large, gesture-enabled touchpad. Why the mouse replacement is however not centrally arranged under the keyboard, probably just know the designer of the hybrid device.

Ample performance

Inside of our test device is a powerful Intel Core i7 processor of the sixth-generation 8 GB working memory. Alternatively, a slightly less expensive version with a core i5 CPU is available. The performance achieved in the system benchmark is appropriate, but not particularly exciting. The integrated graphics chip HD graphics 520, who also comes from Intel’s current Skylake series, gives good results.

For the connection of various peripheral devices and storage media, a total of four USB ports available stand next to a HDMI port and a SD card slot – two of which support the USB 3.0 standard, a further USB 3.1 type-C and Thunderbolt 3 and thus transmission speeds of up to 40 gigabits per second. The mobile upper class, also the built-up solid state memory fits: Acer has our test unit with part number NX. G8TEV. 002 equal to 512 GB treats. It always still not enough, which can optionally load the RAID-0 array with two 512 GB SSDs and increase as the data store on a full terabyte. Also fast ac Wi-FI, Bluetooth 4.0, two speakers and a webcam with 1.3 Megapixels on board are self-evident.

A four-cell battery, which stores electricity 50-watt-hour takes over the mobile energy supply. In the typical mix of uses an Office user, it keeps through nearly five hours, which is not a bad value in view of the performance of the convertibles. The fan, which provides cooling via the underside of the device, is not the quietest, but rarely is used.

Conclusion: Convinced all along the line

The unusual as well as innovative concept of the aspire R13 convinced all along the line – functionally how visually. The frame with the movable display holds what the manufacturer promises. But Acer’s retreads convertible exotic car not only outside gives off a good figure. He can convince with several inner values, which definitely justify the relatively high price of the device.
