As we draw to the conclusion of this review, we're left wondering: "Is this an Ultrabook that should be on my radar?" As always, it depends on the purchaser. I'll do my best to help you decide for yourself....

The Acer Aspire R7 is a new kind of Windows 8 PC and a drastic overhaul of how you use touch screen tech. The trackpad has been moved to the top of the keyboard and that flexible screen covers all angles and goes flat too. It looks like a space station...

A stunning and flexible touchscreen makes this one of the most innovative laptops we've...

There are definitely better tablets, better laptops, and better all-in-ones, but the R7 is pretty much unique in the marketplace right now. I’d still say it’s not for me, even though I’ve enjoyed poking around at it off and on over the past month and a half, but the only real failures are the companies that refuse to innovate.

It's not a great notebook, nor is it a great tablet. You'll need to find something else great about Acer's convertible Aspire R7 before you consider handing over your money.You have to hand it to Acer, it's not afraid to try something different. The...

Everyone has a different take on what a laptop should be, especially in the world of touch-devices, but what if you could have a machine that was part laptop, part tablet, and part all-in-one desktop? That’s the premise with Acer’s Aspire R7, an...

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...

This well-built, attractive laptop comes with an innovative hinge that lets you place its beautiful screen in some highly useful positions. We did find the placement of the touch pad counterproductive, though....

This notebook is certainly one you’ll want to head into a showroom floor to have a go with before you purchase, that much is certain. It may turn out to be too strange for you to want to mess with: but it could very well surprise you as a bit of hardware that’s just what you need.

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 Ezel hinge is cool, there's no question, and I could see myself using a laptop in some of the ways it allows. I'd also love an all-in-one that was this flexible. But I'm not ready to give up the trackpad, and neither is Windows. Until Acer figures out how to make a crazy laptop that's also a normal laptop, I'm not interested.

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...

And call us old-fashioned, but we still can't quite get over the oddly placed touchpad. Finally, the cramped keyboard could be a dealbreaker for some. If those caveats don't deter you, though, this machine offers solid specs and build quality for the money.

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

By wpcentral.com on

When it comes to laptops, Windows 8 machines are giving OEMs a lot to chew on and explore. Of all the companies to most impress me so far, it's been Acer. Traditionally, Acer has been associated with more mid-range devices but their S7 Ultrabook (see...

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 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...

International Review By gazeta.pl on

Acer Aspire R7 jest moim zdaniem idealnym komputerem domowym - nie zajmuje dużo miejsca, ale jest na tyle dobrze wyposażony, by sprostał wszystkim stawianym mu wymaganiom. Dobre wrażenie psuje tylko dziwna niepewność firmy we wdrażaniu zmian do sposobu...

Com uma tela full HD de 15,6 polegadas sensível ao toque e placa de vídeo para rodar games pesados, este notebook híbrido é mais indicado para deixar sobre a mesa do que para carregar na mochila. Graças a uma dobradiça que funciona como cavalete, o...
