I was very nervous about buying an Acer computer. Just to make sure you know how hesitant I was, I tried Surface Pro 2 and Sony Vaio Duo 13 and Sony Flip 14 before this. The Surface 2 was defective as it kept going in to protection mode. Also, for such an expensive unit the build quality was not great on mine as the bezel was not level across, the middle sagged. I tried a second Pro 2 but the battery life was not great. I could only manage 4-4.5 hours. I then tried the Sony but both units suffered from horrible WiFi issues and the Flip 14 had "stuff" rolling around inside straight out of box. I also found the stylus on both Sony's kind of fought against the screen, it wasn't smooth. So, on a whim and with little thought I bought the Acer when it was on sale last week. It arrived yesterday and it's been flawless so far. There had been some reviews for last years model for WiFi issues but this unit has had no issues, and I don't have the best signal at home. As a matter of fact there's a Ipad sitting next to this computer with no connections as I type. The screen is good, BIG, but it is good. The pen stylus is also very good. Keyboard is brightly backlit and the volume is kick a@s!

I recently needed a new laptop, and I was very concerned about getting a Windows 8 machine. With the upgrade to Windows 8.1, you can have an onscreen desktop that is very similar to the Windows 7 desktop, or you can use the Windows 8 start page. I switch back and forth, finding that some things are easier on one than the other.

Here is what sold me on this Acer machine. As I was looking at various laptops at our local Best Buy, I noticed that the track pad has gotten bigger, while the keyboard is farther away from the front of the laptop. I didn't like that at all. That puts a person's hands in a very awkward position for typing. I use an external mouse, and my guess is that a lot of people do. That means that I have very little use for the track pad at all, so why would I want it to take up so much room at the front of my laptop? Now that I have this computer with a touch screen, I have even less need for the track pad. I've had this Acer R7-572-6423 for about two weeks now, and I love the position and feel of the keyboard.

I also love the Ezel screen. I can alter the position and angle of the screen from vertical to almost horizontal. I can flip it over to show someone across from me what is on my screen, and the screen flips almost instantly for that person's viewing. I can pull it forward so that it completely conceals the track pad or leave it back farther. This Ezel seems to be very well-made and sturdy.

Everything that we have installed on it that was on my old machine is running fine, too, so compatibility is great. If you are apprehensive about Windows 8 but know a few people with Windows 8 machines, they can help you adjust to the differences and point you to where you can find things.

How many times have you typed a long email or document and accidentally touched the mousepad which caused the cursor to move somewhere else and by the time you realize it, you're already typing somewhere else in the middle of your document...or worse, it caused a section of your document to be highlighted and consequently deleted with the next keystroke? So, I always have to disable the mousepad on my previous laptops. When I saw the Acer R7's design, I was overjoyed! Who needs the mousepad when you have a touchscreen and can use an active stylus? By the way, someone mentioned the HTC Scribe N-trig stylus which is less than $10 here on Amazon. It works just like the Acer store's active stylus. I ought to know because I already bought the Acer stylus for about $50 before I found out about the HTC stylus. Everything's the same...pressure sensitivity, second button acts as an eraser, etc. Just keep in mind that the pressure sensitive ability is only available on certain programs. Some of the paint programs (such as the included Paint.net) don't have pressure sensitivity options...I tried both the Acer and the HTC stylus. I now have 2 stylus...one for $50 and the other bought for less than $10 :( I love this computer because the new MS Office applications all have pen support, i.e., I can write on my college word, excel or powerpoint lessons and once i click on "stop inking", my notes/drawings become a permanent part of those documents and I can shift easily between keyboard input or pen input. Since it's an active stylus, I can just hover over a link and the description pops up (almost like the Samsung Note 2). This is the best designed laptop ever!

Pros:
1) Excellent, bright high res (1080p) display with fast touch response and n-Trig pen digitizer input.
2) Good battery life - the Core i5 Haswell allows 5 hours of real use.
3) Useful screen flip design allows it to be used as a laptop or tablet
4) Enough ports to handle everything you need to do.
5) The bottom plate is easy to remove - easy access to memory, battery, HDD, PCIe LAN and mSata slot.
6) 2 DIMM slots allow you to upgrade it to 16GB RAM if you want.

Cons:
1) Includes slow 1TB HDD - I immediately replaced it was a fast Samsung SSD. It boots Windows 8 in about 5 seconds.
2) Keyboard / trackpad placement are a bit awkward when it's sitting on your lap. On a table it's fine.
3) No optical drive. It's understandable due to the slim design, but now I need to use an external one.
4) No Core i7 quad option - I would like to use this for software development, but a dual core i5 just isn't fast enough.
