Finding a great business laptop is easy to do especially if you have lot of money to spend, but the thing is getting harder when you find out that you already spend all of your money for living. One thing that we could do here is only finding another alternative that not bad enough to support our work. For this chance, there is a good one that probably meets your expectation with an affordable price. The product that we are talking about here is the R15 series from Acer.
It has everything what you need here. There is 1080p display on 15.6 screen which is perfect for business, slim design, and great performance in both of CPU and GPU. It’s really hard to find similar case like this one at the similar price. The company really shows their quality in building of affordable choice, but with great specifications. If you still not able to make the choice, then we will help you on deciding it.
We are going to talk about it deeper on this article. Let’s see how it performs during our test and find the thing that makes it interesting. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s jump into the article.
Design And Features
The system is measured with total weight of 4.74 pounds and dimension at 0.79 x 14.59 x 10.08 inches. The design is considered as pretty slim since we have 15.6 display here. Sadly, the design is actually bit heavier and thicker than its predecessor that was released in the 2016. But, that is not a big problem since Acer improves so many things especially on the power.
The entire body of lid is designed with aluminum and not plastic. It’s giving a premium feel although the design is not that great. The keyboard deck is designed in great way and typing on this thing should be good enough for many hours. The convertible design allows us to swap into two different modes. There is a traditional mode which is common and tablet mode if you fold the keyboard and display. In tablet mode, its bit heavy and you really need to get used with it.back to menu ↑
Keyboard And Connectivity
The keyboard is nice and features a great experience on typing. It has enough fast travel between the keys and I could type fast enough during of my test. It requires some amount of power for pressing the button, but it feels good since the keyboard is clicky. Overall, I did not find any problem on this case.
As for the connectivity, there are two USB 3.0 ports and single USB 2.0 ports, HDMI port, and SD card slot. The company also decided to add of USB type-C port that you can use to transfer the data faster. The improvement in the wireless connectivity is found here. Now it uses of dual band 802.11 ac WIFI that significantly better than standard normal 2.4 GHZ WIFI.
|Acer Aspire R15||Main Specs|
|CPU||Intel Core I7-7500U 2.7 GHZ|
|Graphics||NVIDIA GeForce 940MX|
|OS||Windows 10 Home|
|Memory||12GB DDR4 Memory|
The performance is something to proud of on this case. It combines the Intel I7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce 940MX. These combinations are resulted a great performance and power efficiency. I am just happy now that it comes with discrete GPU and not the Intel HD one. We could count on it on doing any activity which required more power like editing photo on Photoshop or just doing small editing on your document. All of activities should be done easily without any issue.
The battery life is not a big issue despite of its big power. I barely got almost 10 hours battery for every test that I did in a week. That battery result is slightly far behind with other laptops like HP Specte X360, but still good enough to run for full day usage. I really do not have much complain for the performance and I guess you have the similar though for this case.back to menu ↑
Those are information I know about it. For under 900 dollars you already get a really good machine that cannot be comparable with similar products at the same price. I recommend you to see it deeper and finally decide to take or not take it. Well, everything is back on you, so the choice is yours now. I just hope the information provided is good enough for you. At last, thank you for reading the article and see you again.
