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.

A flexible form factor at a reasonable price

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.

69% An experimental laptop that both hits and misses
Source: CNet English
In a year already filled with unusual computer designs, from laptops with slide-out keyboards to all-in-one desktops that double as coffee table displays, Acer deserves credit for coming out with something that stands out as very different. Acer deserves credit for trying new things in the ambitious Aspire R7.

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.
