ACER HAS launched its new convertible in India dubbed the Aspire R13. The device is available through Croma retail stores and runs Windows 8.1, and claims to be among the very few devices that are Skype-certified. It sports a 13.3-inch display and is less than an inch in thickness. It weighs just over 1.5 kg. The full-HD 1,920×1,080 display supports Zero Air Gap Technology, anti-fingerprint technology and a built-in light sensor that automatically adjusts the screen’s brightness. It also gets a layer of Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
It comes with Acer’s Ezel Aero Hinge, allowing the display to rotate into six different modes. The notebook mode aims at offering a spacious keyboard and the ezel mode helps bring the display closer for convenient reading and Web browsing. The stand mode is to simplify drawing a flow chart, taking notes or editing artwork, and there’s the pad mode that converts the device into a tablet for Web browsing, playing games or watching videos. The tent mode claims to be an ideal position when space is limited, such as an airplane’s seatback tray. Finally, the display mode is for viewing photos and videos. Acer also lets users opt for an optional Active Pen. The pen has a pressure sensor for professional drawing and a hover sensor for easy access to functions.
The device is powered by fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor, has up to 512 GB of SSD with RAID-0 support and up to 8 GB of memory. The audio features include Dolby Digital Plus Home Theatre, Acer Purified Voice and dual air-intake design. The battery promises to deliver up to 8 hours of battery life. All models come pre-installed with Acer Hover Access pen-enabled software.
Then there’s the Acer Touch Tools app that comes with Acer Screen Grasp and Acer AccuFinger. Screen Grasp makes it easy to capture any image, personalise it and then share on social networks. Acer AccuFinger helps to accurately place the cursor in text documents and acquire tiny items on the screen when using fingers. It costs R83,999.
