Reviews for the Acer Aspire R7-572-6423

60% Acer Tackles the Hybrid Laptop
Source: Digital Versus English
Acer is having its go at the convertible laptop with the Aspire R7, a 15.6" model that sports the firm's unique Ezel hinge. Acer deserves credit for breathing a little fresh air into the world of convertible laptop design. Unfortunately, its execution wasn't as good as its intentions. The body is a little awkward (what's with the touchpad?), the body overheats and the sound quality needs improving.

The original Aspire R7 had its share of problems, like middling performance. Some of those problems have been fixed with the Acer Aspire R7-572-6423. The new iteration also adds some desirable features, like N-Trig DuoSense technology, improved battery life, and a stylus for fine control. Unfortunately, no polished up feature set is enough to overcome the decidedly awkward design.

The new iteration also adds some desirable features, like N-Trig DuoSense technology, improved battery life, and a stylus for fine control. Unfortunately, no polished up feature set is enough to overcome the decidedly awkward design. The flipping display adds little to the touch experience, while the swapped keyboard and mouse certainly detract from the user experience at the most basic of levels. If you were intrigued by the original Aspire R7, then perhaps the improved R7-572-6423 is worth springing for, but on the whole, you'll do far better with the Asus N550JV-DB72T, our Editors' Choice for desktop-replacement laptops.
