Earlier this year, Acer introduced a strange convertible ultrabook called the Aspire R7. The new version of the Acer Aspire R7 isn’t much different from its predecessor. Yes, it’s a little slower and lasts quite a bit longer on a charge, but these differences are not so great that they change the character of the system.

Acer R7 Review: Something Different
Source: AnandTech English
We’re definitely late to the party when it comes to reviewing the Aspire R7, but it’s still an interesting design and we thought it was at least worth a look before we move on. And moving on we are: part of the reason why I wanted to look at the Aspire R7 is that we’ve also got the Aspire V7 in hand, and the review is nearly finished.

Acer's new convertible laptop certainly offers a much different approach with its actually good screen that allows for a wide range of adjustments. The hinge design works quite well and is built solid to hold up to the frequent use. The problem is that the design layout of the keyboard and trackpad make the system quite awkward to use in many configurations.

In the end, however, the Acer Aspire R7 is a high-flying concept brought low by reality. While the design is daring and innovative, even among the many experimental designs being tried with convertible and touch-centric laptops, the end user experience shows it to be deeply flawed. With a swapped keyboard and trackpad layout that proves cumbersome, a floating touch screen display that adds little, and a bulky design that reduces portability, the Aspire R7 is more of a weird-looking proof of concept than a marketable product, and the middling to mediocre performance just cements it further as a product that may look cool on the shelf, but isn't the one shoppers should spend their money on.

The Acer Aspire R7-571-6858 might be the first desktop replacement laptop for the all-in-one desktop generation. 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.

With its stellar-looking screen, stylish appearance, durable build, and decent battery life, the Aspire R7 holds its own as a contemporary touch-screen laptop. Throw in the extensive set of connectivity options, not to mention its decent performance, and we'd say the R7 is easily worth its purchase price.

Acer Aspire R7 Review
Source: Slashgear English
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 that, Acer deserves to be commended. As far as how well this machine will serve the public in real-world use: that’s a bit more difficult to tell. 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.

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 moved from room to room, yet the full HD 15.6" panel and loud stereo speakers offer a pleasing multimedia experience.

If the R7 weren't well-built, it would appear to have a major identity crisis. But, happily, this machine is a success. Offering an innovative transforming design, a nice 1080p touchscreen and solid performance for $1,000 is no small feat. The device is hardly perfect, but for a gadget that spans the notebook, tablet and all-in-one categories, it's still fairly impressive.

The $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 more awkward than trendsetting, and the whole device is too heavy to be used as a tablet.

In December 2011, Acer’s CEO, J.T. Wang had an epiphany. He told Dow Jones that his company would switch its strategy to improving profitability and stop “pursuing market share blindly.” The results of this decision became apparent within months, and now, a year and a half later, Acer has matured. Once known as a company that builds bland, boring boxes, Acer has become a serious competitor in the hybrid and Ultrabook segments.

Acer Aspire R7 hands-on review: notebook with new Ezel Hinge
Source: PC Advisor English
The Acer Aspire R7 is an innovative and powerful laptop that is completely geared up for touch. From our limited time with the notebook, we have to admit that we were impressed with it, but it has a couple of quirks that could be considered as flaws such as the track pad being positioned above the keyboard.

Is it a laptop, is it a desktop? The Aspire R7 is one of the more unusual takes on the adjustable Windows 8 laptop that we've ever seen. No, scratch that, it's the most unusual take. The 15.6-inch adjustable laptop was on display at Acer's global launch event in New York city and Pocket-lint fought through the rabble to have a play with this topsy turvy PC.

Hands on: Acer Aspire R7 review
Source: Techradar English
All things considered Acer is to be applauded for offering a different take on the laptop experience. Here there's a concerted and genuine attempt to be open, to embrace those that want a laptop, but to make it easy for people to use touchscreens. Part of Windows 8's rocky road has been due to an authoritarian dictation of how people 'should' use their laptops, such as removing the Start menu and putting Metro front and centre. The Acer Aspire R7 lets you work in nearly any way possible, and we're looking forward to putting it through its paces in a full review.

Whether the Acer Aspire R7 is really going to prove a handy melding of laptop, desktop and tablet will only be revealed after prolonged real-life use. But the first impressions it leaves are positive. Clear thought has gone into its design and construction. There’s a definite learning curve to using the touchpad, and you can get more power for your money if you’re not in love with the curious design. However, this is worth keeping an eye on.

Acer Aspire R7 Hands On Review
Source: Ubergizmo English
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 around, but we have a feeling you’re not going to want to travel cross country with it in your bag. Aside from its weight, the display gave off a nice amount of brightness and detail.

This is ultimately what holds us back from wholeheartedly recommending the R7. While it is a real joy to use, and packs a decent enough punch for most users, it also comes with a pretty high pricetag. With that in mind, we can’t help but think that waiting a few months is going to be a better option than taking the plunge now and missing out on the longevity benefits of Intel’s new CPUs as well as the feature bumps being done by Acer itself.

Acer's Aspire R7 challenges the concept of conventional notebook layout by placing the touchpad above the keyboard. Ultimately, it's what makes the R7 so hard to get used to, even after prolonged usage. We like its screen though, and the Ezel hinge allows it to be positioned in many interesting ways.

89% Acer Aspire R7 Two-in-One Ultrabook Review
Source: Tweaktown English
First we'll start with the bad, and then move to the good. One of the bad things about this system is its weight. It weighs in around 5 pounds, which is definitely noticeable in your backpack. If you're looking for the most lightweight convertible Ultrabook around, then this is definitely not the machine you're looking for. Part of this is due to its 1080p 15.6-inch display. You'll have to decide for yourself whether or not that is worth it to you. Now onto the good: The R7 can easily be converted into a tablet for media consumption, but also retains a full-size keyboard for content creation. The radical design of placing the touchpad above the keyboard allows access to both the keyboard, and the touchscreen. This takes some getting used to, but this is the mode I would use almost exclusively.

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.

I have to commend Acer on trying something different with the R7, but it just might be that the laptop’s design is a bit far away from mainstream ones, which might make it difficult for people to warm up to. But if you’re willing to overlook the awkward trackpad/keyboard swap, you could do some pretty interesting things with the R7 and its various usability modes.

Acer Aspire R13 R7-371T-779K

The Acer Aspire R13 R7 is a convertible tablet which can also function as a laptop. Thanks to the Ezel Aero hinge, the screen can be adjusted into six different positions including stand mode, tablet mode, tent mode, notebook mode, ezel mode and display mode. Each operating mode has its own unique features whereby the screen can be turned along a longitudinal axis. The flexible display is 13.3 inches wide with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. It is a multi-touch screen that can accommodate up to 10 finger contacts. It is about 25.4 mm thick but only weighs 1.5 kg. Since the device is almost entirely from plastics, it can stay so light despite being on the thick side. The only metal incorporated within the structure are the two support beams of the screen and the display frame. The processor here is an Intel Core i7-4510U with a speed of 2GHz which comes with an Intel HD Graphics 4400 card and 8 GB LPDDR3 memory. There is also a stylus pen that allows you to doodle or scribble on screen when it is in stand mode. Overall, this Microsoft Windows 8.1 convertible is possibly one of the more flexible innovations of recent years.

When it comes to redesigning the laptop to be a little more modernised, and more useful than just a typical clamshell computer, Acer’s take on the hinge is an interesting one, and was when the first model came to life in 2013. The latest take on it is even better, with a more portable design and some better innards, but we’re now stuck because the keyboard just stops this computer from being completely comfortable to use.

The R13 is a marked departure from the R7. While the latter was more like a touchscreen all-in-one bundled into a notebook, the R13 is a true convertible designed for use as either an ultraportable laptop or a full Windows tablet. This will probably be less confusing for consumers and help to broaden its appeal.

While the Yoga 3 Pro pushes the design envelope of 2-in-1s with its strikingly slim frame, Acer's R 13 focuses more on speed. The R13's combination of an Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and lightning-fast dual SSDs gives it a significant edge in power compared to Lenovo's flagship 2-in-1.

The Acer Aspire R13 is an excellent laptop, but it may not the best choice for every consumer. This notebook is well built, but the display lid can be difficult to grasp, and the machine is noticeably heavier than many of its Intel Core M counterparts. The Aspire R13 also isn’t the greatest when it comes to enjoying multimedia content. The display’s color accuracy is good, but it wasn’t as bright as we would have liked and the audio quality from the built-in speakers was inconsistent.

The Acer Aspire R 13 (R7-371T-72TC) is at the vanguard for thin-and-light laptops that offer convertible screens. Its unique hinge gives you a little more versatility than the dual-hinge flipping displays of similar systems. You get good performance and lots of storage space, but the R 13 is expensive for what it offers, and battery life is hours short of its rivals. The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro holds on to its Editors' Choice for high end convertible-hybrid laptops because of its longer battery life, smaller chassis, lighter weight, and higher-resolution (3,200-by-1,800) screen, all for $200 less.

While the base configuration delivers great price to performance value, what makes the Aspire R13 unique is its multimodal design. With more expensive configurations of the Aspire R13 - unless you need the multimodal computing experience Acer is selling - you may find better value in a fully configured Dell XPS 13 or Surface Pro 3, the former offering a more compact frame while the latter delivers a lighter body for use as a tablet with an optional keyboard to transform it into an Ultrabook.

Acer Aspire R13 Convertible Windows Notebook Review
Source: Notebooks.com English
With a better keyboard, this machine would serve so many different needs. However, people who type for a living or who do a lot of typing for their personal use will want to look at another system. High end gamers will need dedicated graphics, something this machine doesn’t give them. However, most people will think this machine gives them enough power for the average tasks, for entertainment and even some light pro-level media creation purposes.

Acer reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Intel HD Graphics 5500: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in the Core processors of the Broadwell U-series (15 W TDP). 

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GT 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

3337U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 1.8 - 2.7 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1100 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

4200U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

4210U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.7 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

5200U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

3537U: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 2.0 - 3.1 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1200 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

4500U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

4510U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.1 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

5500U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.


13.3: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.46 kg:

This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.5 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


73.88%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
