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 trackpad, but it also...

With its 15.6-inch display and its ezel hinge, the Aspire R7 is rather heavy to the point where it feels like it would be better suited as a Windows desktop replacement rather than an actual portable notebook. Sure – you could carry the Aspire R7...

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 toward my laptop screen because a website's text is too...

Well-made ; Beautiful display

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

What happens when you re-think everything about laptop design?

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


Touchscreen computers of all flavors suffer from a notable ergonomic problem: reach. A traditional computer, unlike a tablet, is always used with input peripherals, and that means the screen is often kept beyond arm's reach. Simply slapping on a...

Innovative hinge design ; Solid build quality ; Large, spacious keyboard ; Gorgeous 1080p display ; Cool, quiet operation ; Excellent value

Bulky and heavy ; So-so storage performance

Combining three products in one, the Acer Aspire R7's innovative hinge design, gorgeous display, and solid build quality make it one of the best and most versatile hybrid devices to date.

Acer Aspire R7


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.

Acer intros Aspire R7, a laptop with an adjustable display like an all-in-one


When Acer plans a global press event, asking journalists to fly in from twelve time zones away, you know it's going to announce more than just some back-to-school PCs. The company just announced the Aspire R7, a 15-inch laptop whose display sits on a...

Giving credit where it's due, though, the backlit keys at least have a pleasantly soft finish, and feel nice to type on. But all these things are trade-offs, right? In exchange for the squat keyboard you get a display with truly adjustable screen...

Acer Aspire R7 hands-on


At Acer's press event in New York City today, the PC maker was quick to show off its upcoming convertible behemoth in the Acer Aspire R7. Seriously folks, it's a beastly thing and isn't necessarily part of the ultrabook category; thankfully so....

Even with the base configuration, the Acer Aspire R7 is without question a powerhouse. Maxing it out, you can get the R7 with up to 12GB of RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M, 256GB SSD, Bluetooth 4.0, and 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi. Taking into account its size...

Hands-on with Acer’s Aspire R7, the strangest convertible PC we’ve ever seen


Whatever your feelings about Windows 8, there's no question that it (along with external threats from devices like tablets) has spurred PC makers to get more inventive than they've been in years. Not all of the convertible laptops built for the new...

The Aspire R7 will be available exclusively at Best Buy and starts at $999. Pre-orders can now be placed online, and the laptop will also be available in stores on May 17. The Acer Aspire P3 is available today, and isn't exclusive to any particular...

Acer Aspire R7: The Craziest Thing to Happen to Laptops in Years


The R7 switches the touchpad and keyboard placement on laptop's body, with the keyboard in front of the touchpad. This is to make using touch with Windows 8 easier, with the hinge actually working like an easel, sort of like the Sony Duo 11 or an old...

Acer's design has been right near the top of the industry for a little bit now. The S7, the 13-inch but especially the 11-inch, was beautiful. It had a few usability issues, but it was hugely encouraging as far as good design coming to Windows goes....

Acer Aspire R7 pictures and hands-on


That's not your eyes deceiving you, and there's no Photoshop trickery afoot here: that is a keyboard in front of the trackpad. And this is the Acer Aspire R7.

Overall we're a little confounded by the Aspire R7. It's got the fun card to play, but whether its design truly brings anything "revolutionary" to the game as Acer claims? We're less convinced.
