Acer Chromebook R13 review

 

The Acer Chromebook R13 is a little expensive for a Chromebook, starting at $400 (converts to about £320, AU$525), but it's perfectly priced for all the features it offers.

The Acer Chromebook R13 has a long-lasting battery and a variety of ports. Its 360-degree hinge allows it to be used as a tablet.

It's heavy. The Chrome OS is limited in what it can do. Its keyboard isn't backlit.

The Acer Chromebook R13 is a capable Chromebook that won't break the bank, but if your needs are simple there are many other, more affordable laptops worth scoping out.

Acer Chromebook R 13 Review

 

The big knock against Chromebooks -- the light, minimal alternative to MacBooks and PC laptops -- is that their software options are limited. The Acer Chromebook R 13 is one of the first notebooks to avoid that problem, as it offers (beta) support for...

Acer Chromebook R13 review: This could be your next Chromebook

 

Chromebooks definitely have their place, and the Acer Chromebook R13 is a quality Chromebook.

The design is really sleek and nice. The screen is clear and colors are close to being accurate. Pricing options are great for someone who may not want to spend x amount of money on something more

When the volume is under around 30% you can't hear anything playing

Acer's Chromebook R13 is a 360-degree foldable laptop which you can use for work and play at your own leisure. Just fold the screen back to where you'd like and go from there. The battery life will provide you up to 12 hours, so you'll get plenty of...

Acer Chromebook R 13 review

 

The R is for Really long battery life

Excellent battery life ; Competitive hardware specs

Unimpressive performance ; Shell flexes too easily

The Acer Chromebook R 13 will get you through the day on a single charge with its excellent battery life, but it’s no performance powerhouse – even compared to rivaling Chromebooks.

Acer Chromebook R13 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Acer Chromebook R 13 is an unusual proposition. It packs in more storage space than most similar laptops, but costs quite a lot more, too. We like Chromebooks that are portable and have lengthy battery staying power - we've taken a look at the Acer...

Acer Chromebook R13 review

 

A premium 2-in-1 Chromebook with some superb standout features

Impressive battery life; Aluminium encased design; ChromeOS works beautifully with 2-in-1s; Decent keyboard and trackpad; Android support

No support for Windows apps; Fairly heavy; No keyboard backlighting

A killer battery life and lightweight ChromeOS combine to create a 2-in-1 dream, that’s only let down by its processor performance and a heavy carry weight. If you’re not after a convertible, there are some cheaper options available with the same...
