Reviews for the Acer Aspire R7-571G-53338G75ass
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 and how the internal components stack up are the subjects of our review.

Acer may just have found the touch laptop design of the future. The 15 inch Acer Aspire R7 is so adjustable with its unique stand and hinge that it resembles a desktop configuration, which makes it a great desktop replacement. Acer has also opted to adjust the placement of the keyboard and touchpad – with the keyboard being at the bottom of the base and the touchpad on the top. This is awkward in looks and for use. As users are used to the same touchpad placement, and the natural comfort of palm rests for typing for years, this seems like an odd design choice. It is meant to emphasize using the touchscreen instead of the touchpad, but the user experience during typing on the keyboard suffers greatly.
The performance of this machine is rather disappointing. It's not built to handle intensive tasks. It's powered by a 1.8GHz Intel Core i5-3337U processor and 6 GB of RAM. Graphics is handled by the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000, which means hardcore gaming is not possible. However, videos are a pleasure on the 1920x1080 resolution screen. The audio performance of the Acer Aspire R7 is stellar in comparison to the standard fare – cranking the volume yields desirable results, when most machines make you want to keep the volume low to limit distortion. Overall, the end result is a little confusing. It’s a great innovative design that’s bogged down by a few touches that almost completely ruin it. It’s definitely a line to keep an eye on, in hope of improved future iterations.
