Acer introduces Aspire R14 powered by Intel Skylake
If the Acer Aspire R11 was too small or just too weak for you, Acer has the solution. They are introducing the Aspire R14 with Intel Skylake processors inside. The Acer R14 will sport the dual-torque hinge design that enables users to use the convertible’s touchscreen in any position without the screen wobbling when touched.
The sleek design of the Aspire R14 is further augmented by the industry-leading soft touch NIL (Nanoimprint Lithography) that offers a unique look and tactile feel.
The 14-inch IPS Full HD display provides a wide viewing angle allowing smooth sharing of content even with four different modes:
- Notebook – provide the most efficient way for work and maximises productivity.
- Display – great viewing angle for sharing of content during presentations or conference calls
- Pad – optimized to play, share and browse information
- Tent – the perfect mode when using it in a confined space.
The convertible will be powered by the Intel i5 6200U CPU paired with 4GB of RAM. Storage is in the form of a 128GB SSD, which may seem a little small for most people. The Aspire R14 is compatible with the latest wireless networks that use MU-MIMO technology to serve more devices simultaneously allowing up to 2-times faster download, smoother streaming and better browsing experience. It is also equipped with full USB 3.1 Type-C support that allows lightning-fast transfer of power, data and high-res display with only one port. Audio is also enhanced by Acer’s proprietary TrueHarmony Plus which is claimed to deliver lifelike audio that takes entertainment to the next level with wider bass range, powerful sound and limits audio distortion.
The Acer Aspire R14 will be priced at RM2899 and will be available at Authorized Acer Resellers nationwide.
Pokdepinion: I really like cool convertibles like the R14 but their performance is usually insufficient for me to game on. I anxiously wait for the day that there will be convertible gaming laptops on the market.
