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 R7-571-6858


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 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 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...

Acer Aspire R7


We praise Acer for their innovation and the Aspire R7 has one of the cleanest hinge designs we've seen for a contortionist convertible. This is a good looking machine that's quick, cool and not noisy. It's the perfect family PC because it can be easily...

Genuinely useful multi-position hinge, clean and strong design, lovely IPS 1080p display.

We wish for a dedicated graphics option for gaming.

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...
