Acer’s Chromebook R13 Convertible features a MediaTek Quad-Core processor, integrated PowerVR GX6250 Graphics, 802.11ac WiFi, and Bluetooh 4.0. We mentioned in our review at 9to5Google that “When folded 360 degrees, this is a monster 13.3 inch tablet.” With the ability to use Android apps, this laptop also provides a full tablet experience. Includes 1 USB-C, 1 USB 3.0, and 1 HDMI port, and also a MicroSD Card slot.

If you don’t mind spending less on a refurbished model, Newegg has one for $275 shipped this week only.

Because the Chromebook OS is designed for efficiency and simplicity, the Acer Chromebook R13 starts up in seconds and has virus protection built in, so you can spend less time waiting and more time doing. With a long-lasting battery life, you can keep the full Chrome OS experience at your fingertips.

Chromebooks come with free apps like Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, which let you create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations in real time with other people, and don’t have to sweat losing any of your work since your files are automatically backed up online. You can also open and edit Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, or Excel files.

Watch movies, play games or get work done (if you really have to). The Google Play Store offers thousands of free apps, themes, and extensions to help you make the most of your Chromebook. Plus, automatic updates help keep your Chromebook safe with the latest virus protection.

Chromebooks stay synced with your Android phones & tablets, and everywhere you’re signed in with your Google account – so your stuff stays with you, even when your laptop doesn’t. Switching between accounts is a snap, so you can easily share your Chromebook without anyone else messing with your stuff.
