Amazon has discounted the Acer Chromebook R 13 Convertible today, as part of its Gold Box Deal of the Day. So this is good today only at $314.99. This is a really good price for a Chromebook that would be very good for taking back to school this year. This is typically priced at $400.
The Acer Chromebook R13 Convertible is a touchscreen Chromebook from the company, that can be used as a tablet as well as a typical Chromebook. As expected, it does have a 13-inch touchscreen, with a resolution of full HD resolution. It is powered by the MediaTek MT8173C processor, with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Acer also touts around 12 hours of battery life on the Chromebook R13. This is common among Chromebooks, since it is not running as much behind-the-scenes as something like a Windows 10 PC or a Macbook would be. Which allows it to last even longer on a single charge. The Chromebook R 13 is a great Chromebook to grab, as it is a touchscreen model, and it is also pretty lightweight. Making it easier to toss it into your bag and take to class. It does also support Android apps and games, which works fairly decently on this MediaTek processor. Remember that this price is good today only, so you'll want to grab it before it's gone.
