The Acer Aspire R 15 is a 2016 15.6-inch 2-in-1 laptop. It has received immense praise for its performance to price ratio; offering a long list of premium features at a compelling price. With its fast processor, ample RAM, and large storage space, the R 15 offers performance that rivals more expensive laptops. Users have praised its aluminum body that gives it a sleek premium look, and its large colorful Full-HD touchscreen display. However, it does have its drawbacks, most notably is the lack of an SSD, which undoubtedly played a significant role in its pricing. The screen is also reflective, reducing outdoor visibility, and while the bloatware can be removed, we wish they would not have included a boatload of it to begin with.
