CON­VERTED BY LAP­TOP THAT SWITCHES

Our ver­dict on the As­pire R14

7 Days in Dubai - - FRONT PAGE - veathika@7days.ae

Con­vert­ible lap­tops and tablets are in­creas­ing in pop­u­lar­ity due to their dual pur­pose and eas­i­ness to carry. Acer has got in on the act with its As­pire R14. This 14-inch con­vert­ible has a 360-de­gree dis­play, an el­e­gant de­sign and de­cent sys­tem per­for­mance. The fact that the lap­top folds to be­come a tablet is a def­i­nite plus and the way it can be propped on a ta­ble like a tent makes it stand out from other lap­tops in the mar­ket. Another plus is how smooth the tran­si­tion be­tween lap­top to tablet hap­pens. There are no lags, with a straight 180-de­gree flip be­fore you even com­plete folding the screen. The As­pire R14 uses In­tel’s Core i5 pro­ces­sor, which is very ef­fi­cient. The work­ing mem­ory or RAM of 4GB also makes the speed of the lap­top quite de­cent. The full HD touch screen is a de­sir­able fea­ture while the touch is quick to be recog­nised. The screen res­o­lu­tion of 1366x768 pix­els makes it great to watch movies or videos or read too. Mean­while, the sleek de­sign of the ma­chine makes it a good-look­ing de­vice. How­ever, one down side is that - weigh­ing about 2.2kg - the hy­brid model is heavy and big. The Acer As­pire R14 is priced at Dhs2,699.
