Mid-range convertible tablets improve on durability, transformability

Acer today announced the Aspire R 13 and Aspire R 14 series, two new convertible notebook lines that can transition between various notebook and tablet style modes of operation. The R 13 series features Acer's Ezel Aero hinge, that allows the display to rotate into six different positions. The R 14 series of convertible notebooks features a 360-degree, dual-torque hinge that allows it to be used in four different modes.

All R 13 series models offer 10-point touchscreen displays with either super high-resolution WQHD (2560x1440) or full high-definition (1920x1080) zero air gap displays. FHD models feature IPS technology, which provides wide viewing angles.

Acer's R 13 offers Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, up to 1TB solid state drives with RAID-0 support, and up to 8GB of memory. Audio features include Dolby Digital Plus Home Theatre for cinematic surround sound, and Acer Purified Voice, a combination of dual-array microphones plus software-based voice recognition and audio processing.

The Aspire R 13 Series will be available in October in North America, with prices starting at $899, and in European countries for €899.

The R 14 features a 14-inch HD (1366x768) display with Zero Air Gap technology. Models are available with a range of Intel processors, including Pentium, Core i3, i5 or i7, and can be configured with up to 12GB of memory, and up to 1TB of hard drive-based storage. Some models offer Nvidia GeForce 820M graphics.

The R 14 will also ship in October for starting prices of $599, with European pricing as low as €499.
