Today we bring you a laptop that is both a chromebook and convertible. Windows got the quick jump on producing convertible laptops but Chromebook is quickly trying to catch up by providing some low cost options that are sure to attract plenty of attention from potential consumers. Below we are going to take a bit closer look at the Acer R11 CB5-132T-C9UM and see just how well it stacks up.
Processor: Intel Celeron
Memory: 2 GB of RAM
Storage: 32 GB eMMC
Screen: 11.6 Inches
The Acer R11 CB5-132T-C9UM comes in a smaller 11.6 inch display design allow it to be both thin and light which makes it a great option for those needing something to take on the road with them. The total weight of the device is a very light 1.6 Kg and the thickness is just 19.2 mm so it is very easy to carry around for extended periods of time.
Light and thin are not the only mobile friendly features of this laptop as it also has some great battery life as well. You can get a full 10 hours of use out of a single charge making it very easy for most users to get a full days use on the go before having to worry about charging it back up.
Probably the most beneficial feature on the R11 is its very convenient convertible design. It comes with a 360 degree hinge giving you the ability to find the perfect angle to use your device and with touchscreen capabilities it can be folded into tablet mode quickly and be used without even touching the keyboard.
The Acer R11 CB5-132T-C9UM may be big on mobile features but one area it isn’t big on is file storage. Instead of a full sized hard drive that you see in standard sized laptops instead you will find a much smaller 32 GB eMMC drive giving users a fraction of the storage space. If you are somebody who saves plenty of files you will need to find an alternative such as external or online storage instead of saving everything locally to your device.
This may not be as big of a concern as it would be on a Windows device since Chromebook doesn’t require the same large amounts of resources but still this device is limited on power with just a lower end celeron processor and a measly 2 GB of RAM.
The Acer R11 CB5-132T-C9UM may not have all the big time features that more expensive models have but at the same time it is a well designed low cost alternative to these for those unwilling or unable to spend big money on a new device.
