Acer Aspire R 14

 

The latest Acer Aspire R 14 convertible-hybrid laptop features a solid, versatile design, a 14-inch 1080p HD screen, strong performance, and excellent battery life.

Nice price. Solid convertible design. Full 1080p HD touch screen. USB-C port. Stereo speakers adapt to screen position. Strong performance, particularly in 3D gaming. Excellent battery life.

Feels large in Tablet mode. Lots of bloatware.

Conclusion The latest Acer Aspire R 14 is a reasonably priced convertible-hybrid laptop with a lot going for it. Its improvements over its last iteration include a large 1080p HD touch screen, forward-looking technology like a USB-C port, dual-band...

Acer Aspire R 14 (R3-471T-77HT)

 

The Acer Aspire R 14 (R3-471T-77HT) is a moderately priced convertible-hybrid laptop with a large screen and a Core i7 processor for speed. Its dual hinge offers versatility, but it lags behind competitors in terms of screen quality and overall features.

Solid rotating hinge. Fifth-generation Intel Core i7 processor. Large screen for a convertible-hybrid laptop. More than 9.5 hours of battery life in testing.

Individual pixels can be seen on the display. Only 1,366-by-768-resolution screen. No 5GHz Wi-Fi support. Noisy touchpad. Lots of bloatware.

Conclusion The Acer Aspire R 14 (R3-471T-77HT) will certainly last all day and into the night on battery power. It's also a very good performer on our benchmark tests, even if its margin of victory is slight. It's therefore unfortunate that the rest of...

Acer Aspire R14 Review

 

Does Acer Aspire R14 offer enough quality features to make up for its low resolution display?

Zero air gap touch controls ; Affordable with solid performance ; Attractive well-built design

Lackluster display ; Limited feedback on keyboard ; Unwieldy in tablet form ; The Acer Aspire R14 offers a great design and solid performance, but the overall package is marred by the display’s limited resolution and poor viewing angles.

Acer Aspire R14 Convertible Review

 

Small and simple. Acer presents a 14-inch convertible dubbed Aspire R14 R3-471TG-552E that is to convince us with its elegant design, a 360-degree display, and decent system performance. Unfortunately, the screen does not quite meet our expectations.

Battery life, Decent performance due to dedicated graphics card, Design, Touchpad and touchscreen

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...

Acer Aspire R14 R5-471T-79GQ Notebook Review

 

Not without flaws. With the Aspire R14, Acer has a slim 14-inch convertible with a 360-degree rotatable display in its lineup. However, it is not a bargain at a demanded price of a good 1100 Euros (~$1195). The laptop has some shortcomings despite its...

IPS screen, high application performance, SSD, low operation noise, low temperatures

dark screen

The Aspire R14 is a convertible - to be more precise, it is a slim, 14-inch laptop that features a 360-degree rotatable display. The laptop provides plenty of computing power and can render games conditionally. A speedy SSD ensures a fast-running...

Acer Aspire R14 Review: A Strong Hybrid Competitor

 

Lenovo has been the market leader in hybrid laptops and Acer is looking to give them some competition and they've done well in with the Acer Aspire R14.

Nice design and good construction. Responsive and snappy, tablet mode works really nice and Windows 10 is very nice.

Acer bloatware needs to go. Gets a little heavy when used in tablet mode.

If you’re considering a hybrid laptop the Acer Aspire R14 should be on your list of hybrids to check out.

Acer Aspire R 14 (R5-471T-52EE) Review and Ratings

 

This sober $699 configuration of the R 14 delivers a fine balance of performance and battery life for the money, though it's hefty in tablet mode and the keyboard/touch pad could use some refinement.

Good balance of processing power (Core i5) and fast storage (SSD) for the price ; Variable-torque 2-in-1 hinge action impresses ; Solid battery life

Touch pad’s down-click feels chintzy ; Heavy on the bloatware ; A bit overweight for the screen size

Like buying a laptop, with the myriad combinations of processors, screens, storage schemes, and more, 2-in-1 hybrids aren’t easy to distinguish and select among. Unlike in their early days, when they tended to exact a premium, their prices and...

Acer Aspire R14 R5-471T review – a premium 14-incher

 

If you only have around $700 and seek a very well built with modern features, you'll hardly find anything better than this Acer Aspire R14. It's a 14-inch laptop, thus a bit large and heavy for a convertible, plus gets a dim display that's not going to...

looks great and is very well built; great screen, but dim, so you'll have to keep this laptop indoors; good trackpad; solid performance; excellent battery life; great price

large and heavy for a convertible; small and shallow keyboard; lots of bloatware; dim display

I’ve been looking at the available Core i5 Skylake laptops in the last few days and I can’t really find anything that offers the same features as this Aspire R14, for the same kind of money.

Acer Aspire R 14 (R3-471T) review, the Broadwell update

 

The Acer Aspire R 14 is one of the few convertibles that will offer a Broadwell Core i5 processor for under $600 these days. In order to meet the low price-point though Acer had to cut some corners, which include, among others, crafting a rather bulky...

There aren’t many 14 inch 2-in-1s out there. The Lenovo Flex 3 14 is the only other laptop that comes close to this Acer, with a start price of $549 and Core i5 configuration scheduled to sell at around $650 (these are my predictions, since the Flex 3...
