The Acer Aspire R 11 is just $280 in Day 10 of Microsoft’s 12 Days of Deals, offering a touchscreen and a cool 360-degree dual-torque hinge.

Description: With its 360-degree dual-torque hinge, the Acer Aspire R 11 flips the view full circle for multiple ways to use it. Its versatility makes it the perfect device for collaborating and sharing, and with Windows 10, you get easy ways to snap apps in place, create new desktops, and work and play across all your devices.

Specs: 1.6 GHz Intel Pentium N3700 processor, 4GB RAM, 500 GB 5400 RPM HDD, 1 USB 3.0 port, 1 USB 2.0 port, HDMI, headphone output/microphone input combo, 1 Gbps Ethernet port, SD card reader, 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0, 11.6 in LED touchscreen (1366 x 768) with 10-finger multi-touch support, Windows 10 Home.

Weight: 3.31 lbs

Color: Sky Blue

Key features: 360-degree dual-torque hinge, four mode usage (notebook, display, tent and pad modes), no crapware or useless fluff.

My take: I’ve not reviewed or seen this device, and the specs are pretty low-end. What saves it is the fun design—perfect for kids—and the versatile, multi-usage hinge.
