Build quality, Pressure on the screen causes image distortions, One USB 3.0 port only, Glare-type screen, Fan characteristics, Temperature development

Acer has a convertible with 360-degree hinges in its product line with its Aspire R14. We liked the review sample's design and solid looks. Unfortunately, the build exhibits some shortcomings, such as the components' transitions and the screen where...

Review: Acer Aspire R14 (R3-471TG)


This machine was supposed to be in last issue's mainstream laptops group test, but an unfortunate courier incident saw it miss out. It would have stacked up reasonably well, so let's have a look now. Its strongest feature is the i7 5500U CPU. At this...

"... if it is to remain deskbound, and serve primarily as a number-crunching machine it’s fine and reasonable value."
