The Acer Chromebook R11 is a bestselling 2015 convertible Chromebook that can be used as a traditional laptop or as a tablet running Chrome OS. The Acer Chromebook R11 has been praised for its hybrid design, Quad-Core Intel processor and 32GB of flash memory. The 2GB of RAM will cope with most Chrome OS apps, but for more intensive tasks the 2GB will feel a bit sluggish and Acer should have offered a 4GB version. The display is average and offers a maximum resolution of 1366×768 which is what we usually find on cheaper laptops, but it does offer a fairly responsive touchscreen that sets it apart from many of its competitors. The 360 degrees hinge design is stable, but it won’t win any awards, nor do we expect it to at under $300.

    Acer's Chromebook R 11 has a neat hybrid design and the price is right, but simpler, non-touch devices offer better value.

    The Acer Chromebook R 11 offers a colorful touch screen and a flexible 2-in-1 design, but other systems last longer on a charge.

    The Acer Chromebook R11's minimalist design may not be the sexiest, but that exterior hides a deceptively capable machine that'll last all day. Oh, and it can flip 360-degrees into a tablet. No big deal.

    With solid build quality, a versatile convertible design, an IPS touch screen, full-size media ports, and strong performance, the Acer Chromebook R 11 still manages a very affordable price.
