Acer’s bid to com­bine a tablet and note­book de­liv­ers a de­tach­able screen — the R 13 lets users ro­tate its screen 180 de­grees. It’s a clever de­sign de­liv­er­ing a ver­sa­tile Win­dows tablet, but with com­pro­mises. As a tablet, the at­tached key­board makes it thick and heavy, while as a note­book the key­board area could have been bet­ter used. It comes with a su­per-res­o­lu­tion or a high-def­i­ni­tion screen, In­tel Core i5 or i7 chip, and up to 1TB of stor­age. A bat­tery life of eight hours strug­gles to match com­peti­tors.
