Acer has just taken the curtains off its new Windows convertible – the Acer Aspire R13. Featuring a QHD display (2560 x 1440) and powered by an Intel Haswell processor, what makes the R13 special not only lies in the specs, but it has a pretty interesting design as well, allowing the tablet to be converted into six different distinct body-to-screen configurations.
As seen from the image above, the Aspire R13 can be used into stand, tent, pad, display, notebook and EZEL. These positions are made possible using an Ezel Aero Hinge that has a dual-torque design. Check out the video below to see how it works:
The Acer Aspire R13 weighs about 1.36kg and measures at about 2.5cm thin. The most basic configuration is a 1080p display and an Intel Core i5 processor, but you can opt up to a QHD screen, Intel Core i7 chipset, up to 1TB of storage and as much as 8GB of RAM. The battery can last up to eight hours at a single charge but that is of course, for the 1080p variant, not the QHD one. To be launched in Asia in November this year, the R13 will be priced around USD$900.
