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 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...

We’re definitely late to the party when it comes to reviewing the Aspire R7, but it’s still an interesting design and we thought it was at least worth a look before we move on. And moving on we are: part of the reason why I wanted to look at the Aspire...

Acer Aspire R7-571-6858

 

The Acer Aspire R7-571-6858 has an innovative hinge mechanism, but the overall design is dragged down by the decision to swap the touchpad and keyboard, resulting in a design that is awkward at best.

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

The Acer Aspire R7-571-6858 might be the first desktop replacement laptop for the all-in-one desktop generation. Featuring an adjustable easel-style stand/hinge combination, it's the first laptop I've seen with a fully adjustable monitor, and more...

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...

Acer Aspire R7 review

 

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

 

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

Click to EnlargeThe $999 Acer Aspire R7 is definitely a unique device. We like its Ezel Hinge, which supports a wide range of motion and usage modes, and the display and audio are excellent. But the R7's keyboard and trackpad switcheroo ends up being...

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.

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.
