The Acer Aspire R14 series has been launched in the spring of 2015 and consists of an array of mid-range convertible (2-in-1) laptops designed for the general public, aimed at the average user with extra mobility and functionality needs in mind. With features that add value like Zero Air Gap technology, Acer Touch Tools or Skype Certification, this convertible laptop is a good tool, despite a drawback or two.
The Satellite Fusion 15 L55W-C5259 is a brand new, Windows 10 ready, mid-range convertible laptop from Toshiba. Officially launched just a few days ago, it comes at a list price of $799, a fair price for this laptop with hinges capable of rotating the screen at 360 degrees. It’s ideal for college students, home users and light work (more useful in face-to-face and small team presentations and meetings).
The 17.3 inch ASUS X755JA-DS71 is a great desktop replacement laptop, perfect for everyday home use or suitable in an office where screen size and value for money are more important than portability.
The relatively rugged Lenovo B50 series are designed for office and work environment tasks. Delivering speed and accessibility is a must for these workhorses, not to mention durability and competitive prices. Therefore, the Lenovo B50-80 80EW023CUS, the most expensive variation of the series will deliver those results.
The Lenovo Flex 3 is considered by many to be the poor man’s Yoga 3, which is currently the flagship 2-in-1 laptop/tablet from Lenovo. We do agree up to a point though. The Flex is up to 40% cheaper than its premium counterpart and that alone is a decisive factor in many user’s buying decisions, since most don’t actually need the thinness and mobility guaranteed by the Yoga.
