The Acer Chromebook R 13 is a convertible notebook with a 13.3 inch touchscreen display, 4GB of RAM, and up to 64GB of storage. It has a 360 degree hinge that lets you fold the screen back when you want to hold the Chromebook like a tablet. And the system is the first Chromebook powered by a MediaTek processor.

Announced in August, the Acer Chromebook R 13 should begin shipping next month. But it’s already available for pre-order from B&H (and maybe a few other retailers).

While the Chromebook R 13 has a list price of $400, most stores seem to be charging a little more than that at the moment.

The notebook features a MediaTek MT8173C quad-core processor with PowerVR GX6250 graphics, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, a USB Type-C port, a USB 3.0 port, HDMI output, and a 4,670 mAh battery that Acer says should be good for up to 12 hours of run time.

It has a 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS display with multitouch support, and while the laptop may not support Android apps at launch, it’s on the list of Chromebooks that will gain support for the Google Play Store and Android apps in the future.

Acer’s 13 inch convertible Chromebook measures about 12.8″ x 9″ x 0.6″ and weighs 3.3 pounds.
