Shopping for a laptop can certainly feel like buying an automobile: It’s easy to get charmed by a sleek, stylish convertible that has power to spare. With its long battery life, powerful speakers and 6th-generation Core i5 processor, the 14-inch Acer Aspire R 14 has all of the makings of a great notebook. But just as some sports cars have touchy steering, this hybrid’s keyboard was uncomfortable for extended typing sessions. Otherwise, the Aspire R 14 provides plenty of reasons to convince you to take it home.

With Acer’s one-of-a-kind 360° dual-torque hinge included in its fresh design language, the Acer Aspire R 14 is a 14″ convertible laptop that can adapt to just about any situation or space. There’s design and then there’s design with style. The Aspire R 14 sports a NIL technology brushed-look exterior with elegant diamond-cut edges. Plus, with the unique 360°hinge design, you get four mode positions — Laptop, Tablet, Display and Tent. Need speed where it counts? Get more online with 802.11ac wireless networking with Multi-User MU-MIMO at up to a two-fold increase in performance. Then add max-speed I/O from USB 3.1 with Type-C connector with more speed, power, pixels and protocols.
For better visibility, you get a Zero Air Gap display for brighter visuals, even outdoors. Bolder audio? We add Acer TrueHarmony Plus and Dolby Audio® technology for clear chats in Skype and Cortana, and reversible channels to match the display position. The Aspire R 14 combines two audio technologies to improve voice clarity. With Skype for Business certification, you get crystal clear and instant communication across the globe, while Acer Purified.Voice modulates your voice and filters out typing noise. The Aspire R 14 screen has an anti-smudge treatment that resists the oil and grime accumulation that can degrade your screen image. Added to that, we included our Acer BluelightShield™ technology to reduce blue spectrum emissions and comfort your eyes.
You probably can’t run continuously for as much as 8 hours, but the Aspire R 14 can. At work or school, you can just keep on going without having to find someplace to recharge. Now that’s electrifying. A powerful Intel® Core™ processor in the Aspire R 14 means you get the best of both worlds – the full performance of a laptop plus the fun of a tablet in one device. Edit photos one minute, watch movies the next. Go from spreadsheets to gaming in a flash. That’s serious processing. Only with Intel Inside®.
