However, as times change, so do spec/price ratios which is why today we aim to study the pros and cons of the Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) and see if it's worth all the fuss the media's been doing about it. Lets get on with it!

Convertibles have become a staple of the laptop market, perfect for those who are torn between the need of a laptop or the need of a tablet. Some convertibles tend towards the high end user, such as the recently reviewed Acer R5-571TG-7229 which includes a dedicated graphics card as well as 12 GB of RAM.

However, the market for convertibles still points mostly towards "light" machines. Such is the case of the latest Acer SP111-31N-C4UG, which we will be reviewing today.

This new convertible plans to seduce us making use of its Full HD display, long lasting battery life and SSD storage unit, as well as a very competitive price. Without further delay, let's get to know this model in more detail, shall we?

  • Intel Core i7 CPU
  • nVidia GeForce Graphics
  • Fingerprint reader
  • 256 GB of SSD storage
  • The cons:
  • No ethernet port
  • Heavy for a convertible (4.7 pounds)
Convertibles have been all the rage lately with each manufacturer launching its own version of this very peculiar kind of laptop that doubles as a tablet. That said, what we have barely seen in this segment are convertibles that are capable of handling some serious graphics.

In other words they typically came with a dedicated graphics chip. However, now Acer has launched a new convertible that finally allows users to go crazy playing their AAA games either in laptop or tablet mode.

We're talking about the very attractive Acer R5-571TG-7229, a convertible that packs its very own Nvidia GeForce graphics chip alongside a string of other attractive features such as a Full HD display, fingerprint reader, massive SSD storage and a very generous 12 GB of RAM.

Priced moderately we believe this to be one of the best convertibles in the market and that's why we don't hesitate to launch our review of the Acer R5-571TG-7229. Wanna jump in?
