Bottom Line

The 2017 Acer R11 Chromebook feels snappy and has an excellent battery life, but the poor touchpad may be its biggest drawback.


Acer’s R11 CB5-132T-C7R5 11.6-inch laptop has received positive reviews for its convertible and versatile design, its solid construction, its battery life and its comfortable keyboard. Most have found that the performance is reasonably good, but with 4GB of RAM, you won’t be able to go wild with multitasking. Furthermore, like most Chromebooks that rely mostly on cloud based storage, it has limited onboard storage. The touchpad is also said to be poor and some noted that there can be issues with screen glare. All in all, the 2017 Acer R11 is a decent convertible laptop, but as with all Chromebooks, lacks onboard storage space.

    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.

    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.

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