Review Acer Aspire R7-571G-53338G75ass Convertible

 

Different by design. The Acer Aspire R7-571G does not follow classic notebook design guidelines. Thanks to the Ezel hinge, the notebook supports display positions that no other design is capable of offering. How the solution works on a day-to-day basis...

IPS display; Speakers; Touchscreen; Ezel hinge; Performance; Accessories

WLAN connection; Keyboard (space bar); Missing palm rest

The very useful and well-designed Ezel hinge.

Acer Aspire R7 Hands On Review

 

Earlier this morning, one of the stars of Acer's global presentation which took place in New York City was the Aspire R7. Acer called the Aspire R7 its notebook hybrid which not only re-imagines the layout of its keyboard and […]

While some laptop makers are creating detachable and convertible hybrids, Acer is catering to the touch experience in a different way. The $899 Aspire R7's Ezel hinge allows its 15.6-inch touch screen to essentially "float" above the keyboard, flip...

Acer R7 Review: Something Different

 

Several months ago, Acer released the Aspire R7 , a new and interesting take on touchscreen laptops. We didn't have an opportunity to review it at the time of launch, but Acer did ship one out a bit later and it's an interesting enough laptop that we...

Acer Aspire R7-571-6858

 

The Acer Aspire R7 features a stunning look, but the innovative design is marred by an awkward layout and mediocre performance.

Innovative design places touch front and center. Beautiful 15-inch 1920-by-1080 resolution display. Excellent sound with surprisingly loud volume.

Flipped keyboard and touchpad is a flop. Mediocre performance.

Conclusion In the end, however, the Acer Aspire R7 is a high-flying concept brought low by reality. While the design is daring and innovative, even among the many experimental designs being tried with convertible and touch-centric laptops, the end user...

Acer Aspire R7 Review

 

The Acer machine you're about to see is rather unique - it's got what the group calls an "Ezel" hinge, made to expand the units abilities beyond that of the average notebook or desktop. Here we're using Windows 8 in combination with Acer's hardware to...

The Acer Aspire R7 is one of the most unique computers on the market today. Acer proves themselves as being not only a reputable traditional builder of notebooks with this device, but one that’s bold enough to create oddities like this as well. For...

I think I'm going blind. I've never had glasses, and always kind of liked being the guy with perfect vision, but I'm pretty sure I'm going blind. Ten times a day I catch myself craning my neck...

Well-made ; Beautiful display

Keyboard and trackpad shouldn't be flipped ; Mediocre performance and battery life ; Power button is too sensitive and too inconsistent

Maybe the look of the future, but not of the present

Acer Aspire R7 review: a flexible form factor at a reasonable price

 

If you told us Acer was coming out with an innovative new take on the Windows 8 convertible, we'd probably laugh in your face. After so many months of

Innovative design, well-built ; Bright 1080p display ; Good specs for the money

Cramped keyboard, awkwardly placed touchpad ; Unimpressive battery life ; Relatively heavy ; Only one configuration right now

The Acer Aspire R7 is a unique take on the Windows 8 laptop, with an adjustable display and an attractive hinge design. And, at $1,000, it's also a pretty good deal.

Acer Aspire R7 Review

 

The Acer Aspire R7's stylus input and Haswell processor add value to this unique flip-screen hybrid, but putting the touchpad above the keyboard still feels awkward.

Great high-definition display; Fantastic audio; Unique design supporting multiple viewing modes

Awkward touchpad placement; Below-average battery life; Relatively slow hard drive; Feels heavy in tablet mode

The Acer Aspire R7 presents a unique touch-friendly design with its floating display, but putting the touchpad above the keyboard feels awkward.

Acer Aspire R7 review:

 

In a year already filled with unusual computer designs, from laptops with slide-out keyboards to all-in-one desktops that double as coffee table displays , Acer deserves credit for coming out with something that stands out as very different.

The Acer Aspire R7 offers an inventive and very flexible design at a reasonable price, with a full-HD display.

Some of the design risks, including a misplaced touch pad and an awkward tablet mode, make the R7 a hassle to use.

Acer deserves credit for trying new things in the ambitious Aspire R7. If you can get used to the odd touch pad, it's good for sharing your screen with a group, but it may be just too far outside the mainstream for wide appeal.
