Acer Chromebook R 11 (CB5-132T-C1LK)

 

With solid build quality, a versatile convertible design, an IPS touch screen, full-size media ports, and strong performance, the Acer Chromebook R 11 still manages a very affordable price.

Nice price. Sturdy, convertible design. Intel Celeron processor and 4GB of memory provide speedy performance. Full-size ports. 32GB solid-state drive (SSD). Long battery life.

Key travel feels short.

Conclusion The Acer Chromebook R 11 is an all-around impressive convertible-hybrid Chrome OS system, offering solid construction, speedy components, and a good array of features at a low price. It rates a half-point lower than the Asus Chromebook Flip,...

Acer's Chromebook R 11 has a touchscreen hybrid design at a budget price.

 

If Chrome OS has piqued your interest, the Acer Chromebook R 11's hybrid design and budget price earn it a spot on our short list.

Acer's Chromebook R 11 is an inexpensive tablet-laptop hybrid, coupling the simplicity of Google's Chrome OS with a 360-degree hinge and touchscreen.

Unfortunately, Chrome OS isn't optimized for touch, and navigating around the browser with your finger can be tricky. There aren't as many apps available for Google's Chrome OS as you'll find on Microsoft's Windows or Apple's OS X.

Acer's Chromebook R 11 has a neat hybrid design and the price is right, but simpler, non-touch devices offer better value.

Acer Chromebook R11 Review: portable and foldable

 

Back in September, Acer announced among other things, an update to their Chromebook line. One of the biggest changes to the line was the convertible design of the new Chromebook R11. I've had my hands on one for a little while now, and it's time to...

Overall, Acer’s Chromebook R11 looks, feels, and performs wonderfully. It’s a bit smaller than I’d like, but perfect for those who don’t want to lug around something with a larger screen. The version that we tested, which comes with 32GB of storage and...

Acer Chromebook R 11 Review and Ratings

 

The R 11 delivers Chromebook-laptop and tablet functionality in a device that's surprisingly elegant for its low price.

Converts from a laptop to a kiosk to a tablet ; Good build quality ; Highly responsive touch screen ; Long battery life

Middle-of-the-road performance, as Chromebooks come ; A bit pricey for an 11-inch Chromebook

If you are even considering a Chromebook, you're no doubt aware that it is an Internet- and app-centric device, so preloaded software (in the traditional sense) is non-existent. But you can get an awful lot done with a Chrome browser, a Google Docs...

Acer Chromebook R11: Fully flexible Chromebook packs IPS screen on a budget

 

We've seen a dozen Chromebooks and it's fair to say few have ever impressed us. Why? Because of poor screen choices with limited angles of view.

Acer Chromebook R11 review

 

360-degree flips all day long

Convertible ; Attractively minimalist ; Good battery life

Terrible trackpad ; HD-only screen

The Acer Chromebook R11's minimalist design may not be the sexiest, but that exterior hides a deceptively capable machine that'll last all day. Oh, and it can flip 360-degrees into a tablet. No big deal.

Acer's Chromebook R 11 has a touchscreen hybrid design at a budget price.

 

A Chromebook's job is difficult. It has to be inexpensive, which inevitably means you can't expect too much. But it also needs to stand out in a market that's crowded by dirt cheap competition.
