What is the difference between these 2 Notebooks???
Acer Aspire R 11 R3-131T-P7HA
Acer Aspire R 11 R3-131T-P344
The specs seem the same. Only difference I can tell is about $50 on amazon.
Well the P344 is blue. I have one that is hotrodded a bit (8GB, Samsung EVO SSD) - original 500GB is now in a USB 3.0 external - and I consider it the best of all my portable devices
They are both blue!
I just had a help chat with someone at amazon.com and they couldn't find any difference either, besides the price.
I thought someone at Acer, the company that builds these machines could tell me. Maybe one is an earlier model??? But the specifications seem to be the same for both.
I guess I'll get the "R3-131T-P344" since it's a little cheaper with the same specs.
I was thinking of upgrading the RAM to 8GB, and a SSD as well.
Was it easy to upgrade??
Also, would I have any problems with the slow processor playing 1080p movies on it??
As mentioned, my P344 now has 8GB ram and a Samsung EVO SSD, both from Amazon. Only tricky part is the microswitch interlock on one of the center screws and the "lift the clasp" cables (do not pull !) on & over the disk drive.
Had an R5/i7 here for assessment and the R3/N3700 was not discernably slower thought the R3 is a ventless design. Unlike what the specs say, the HDMI does support 1920x1080 & personally find the real RJ-45 useful. Also the N3700 idles at 1.6GHz - when needed it ramps up to 2.4
I've gotten lost in all of the models and different configurations, think it hurts Acer in the long run.
So I finally found out the difference!
"These laptops are identical, with exception of preloaded third-party software. In fact, the Signature Edition R3-131T-P7HA doesn’t have any, thus having a cleaner Windows 10 installation."
Is there much 3rd party software on the P344 that you removed?
Or should I spend the extra $$ and get a clean windows 10 PC with nothing else installed??
You mean the clean one is $50 more than the preloaded ?
I just removed McAfee on mine (use Defender and EMET set paranoid) and disabled some plugins. Rest I just left unless annoying.
That review is interesting. They didn't seem to understand that the N3700 is a ventless cpu and capable of 2.4GHz. Mine is hotrodded with 8GB RAM and a 250GB (enough for me) SSD. Since I generally use an external 1920x1080 monitor the screen is OK (was really looking to the form factor for transporting) and performance is within the ballpark to a similar i7.
