Acer Aspire R14

  |   by Ian Debevoise

The Acer Aspire 14 offers a well built design with an easy 360-degree hinge that allows the user to easily switch between tablet and laptop mode. With an efficient Intel Core i5-4210U processor the Aspire 14 handles most convertible tasks with ease but the 14-inch HD (1366 x 768) display and poor viewing angles leave a lot to be desired.

  • 14-inch HD (1366 x 768)
  • Intel HD Graphics 4400
  • 6 GB of DDR3 RAM
  • 1 TB HDD
  • 802.11 b/g/n
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Dimensions: 13.5 x 9.6 x 0.9 inches

  • Pros

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


  • Cons

    • Unwieldy in tablet form


Quick Take

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.
