Expert review by : Nate Ralph (cnet.com.au)

Acer's Chromebook R 11 has a touchscreen hybrid design at a budget price.

 

A Chromebook's job is difficult. It has to be inexpensive, which inevitably means you can't expect too much. But it also needs to stand out in a market that's crowded by dirt cheap competition.

Acer's Chromebook R 11 is an inexpensive tablet-laptop hybrid, coupling the simplicity of Google's Chrome OS with a 360-degree hinge and touchscreen

Unfortunately, Chrome OS isn't optimized for touch, and navigating around the browser with your finger can be tricky. There aren't as many apps available for Google's Chrome OS as you'll find on Microsoft's Windows or Apple's OS X

Acer's Chromebook R 11 has a neat hybrid design and the price is right, but simpler, non-touch devices offer better value.

Review: Acer Chromebook R11

 

Acer's convertible Chromebook solid but gimmicky features weigh it down from being a top pick.

The Acer C730 or the Dell Chromebook 11 are probably better bets unless you really, really need the touchscreen.
