Acer today the new Aspire R 14 convertible notebook. The Aspire R 14 (R5-431T/471T) convertible notebook comes with dual-digital microphones feature Acerwith enhanced digital signal processing (DSP) that cancel background noise and improve speech accuracy, allowing people to have an optimized Cortana experience. It also features Acer TrueHarmony Plus technology with Dolby Audio, providing powerful audio with immersive surround. Both devices also ship with Acer BluelightShield, with four professionally tuned modes to choose from, which can effectively reduce eye strain by reducing blue light emission from the screen.
The Aspire R 14 has evolved with a new hairline-brush metallic finish, diamond-cut edge design, and a thinner 360-degree dual torque hinge for incredible flexibility between four usage modes. When paired with Continuum, this helps people switch easily between PC and tablet mode. People can maximize productivity with the most efficient method of keyboard input in classic Laptop mode, and switch to Display mode by hiding the keyboard at the back or laying 180 degrees flat, ideal for collaborating, sharing and entertainment. Converting to Tent mode gives users the option to use in a confined space, while a masterfully-crafted magnet design allows the device to be fully converted into Tablet mode – without any gaps whatsoever.
