Some manufacturers have a policy of conservatism. Someone a little experimenting at the hardware level devices. But it has always remained on the market are those who boldly offered new ideas and was not afraid of being rejected by buyers. Acer Aspire R7 is a prime example of such a bold idea. It is a hybrid tablet and ultrabook, computer-transformer with a little bit unusual design.
Folded Acer Aspire R7 looks like a regular notebook, with the exception of a small cutout on the lid. This recess is designed to adjust the angle of the monitor is open. With the exception of the lower part of the body is completely made of expensive polished aluminum, which looks very stylish.
Now a little about the design of this artsy loop. Generally, Acer has patented this design, and awarded her the name Ezel Hinge. This loop allows you to work on this laptop in different modes. The first mode is a mode of conventional laptop. The second mode allows you to deploy a monitor in the opposite direction. This mode will be used during the show itself, small office presentations. The third mode is the tablet mode, and the fourth allows the monitor to bring themselves in such a way that the design of a computer is like a Sony Vaio Duo. Moreover, the manufacturer decided to swap the touchpad and keyboard.
Rearranging the touchpad and keyboard, Acer hints at the fact that users of Windows 8 laptops less often will use the touchpad. Instead, it will be easier to use the touch screen. This idea makes perfect sense, since the interface of Windows 8 is really sharpened by a computer with a touchscreen. Cons of such an idea reflected on the keyboard and, respectively, as the input. Due to the lack of fully hands, typing was not too comfortable. Needless to say, we are accustomed to, but nonetheless, classic device operation panel where it is more convenient. On the quality of the input keyboard is quite good: it does not flex during operation, but also has a good average speed.
Klikpadom use here is not so easy because of its location. By itself klikpad pretty decent. It has good sensitivity and high input accuracy knows multi-touch required for Windows 8 and easily detects pressing the left and right keys. But klikpad here may not be available in all modes. As mentioned earlier, the main device is a touch screen navigation here. The touch screen on the Acer Aspire R7 works flawlessly, making it easy to carry out the new Windows 8 gestures. It was a little hard to click on a link, but the slight movement of two fingers on the screen and increased the allowed us to succeed.
Acer Aspire R7 screen has a diagonal of 15.6 inches. He also has a good resolution of 1920 X 1080, which provides high-quality images and allows you to work with graphics and photos at a professional level. In addition, the screen has a very wide viewing angle and a high brightness, ensuring easy and high-quality work in the open air.
On board, Acer Aspire R7 processor is energy-Intel Core i5-3337U clocked at 1.8 GHz, 6 GB of RAM, a hard disk of 500 GB, and integrated graphics Intel HD 4000.
Such indicators will easily work in a variety of applications ranging from office and ending creative. However, playing with the kind of performance will not be too comfortable. We’ll have to put the minimum system requirements for the game did not go into a slide show.
On the left side of the Acer Aspire R7 are two USB 3.0 ports, 3.5 mm audio jack combined microphone and headphone jacks and HDMI video outputs and a Mini DisplayPort. On the right side is the charger slot, volume rocker, USB 2.0 and a device that reads SD-card.
Sure, Acer Aspire R7 is a very interesting device. As for its decent performance, he has a very reasonable price tag. Unfortunately, users are unlikely to be ready for such experiments. This is mainly due to the inconvenient location of the touchpad and keyboard. Also worth noting is that the 15ti-inch hybrid tablet is not the best transportation option. Acer should think less of the overall model of the device.
