I love my tablet but wanted the full CPU power of a regular laptop and this is it.

I am so glad that they move the track pad, because I never use it between the touch screen and a wireless mouse.
I just want to let everyone know the problems you might encounter if you purchase one.

Hey there,

I really dig the Acer Aspire R7. I love my tablet but wanted the full CPU power of a regular laptop and this is it. I did buy at Best Buy as they were much cheaper for some reason.

While investigating the R7 it was everything I was hoping for. Nice processor/RAM, touch screen, tablet convertible... perfect! I almost went with an ASUS "something or other" which was very nice but in comparing I discovered the R7 had the better screen resolution and the speakers on the R7 are quite good. I've never had a laptop with excellent speakers so that was an unexpected bonus.

I spoke with 3 Best Buy associates and they all tried to talk me out of the R7. They were quite adamant I might add. Here's why they didn't like the R7... The screen doesn't fold flat (true), the keyboard is in the front... That's it! They were horrified by the configuration.

Here's why their "dings" on the R7 were actually a benefit for me... I thought the keyboard in the front was brilliant! I always disable the touch pad because I end up deleting huge paragraphs of info without even realizing it. Even with auto save it's hard to get back info I typed 30 minutes ago that got highlighted and backspaced out of existence when I wasn't looking. Gah! Not with this rig! I can leave the touch pad on and jump on it as needed and it is never in the way. I have long fingers and I like to rest my hands in front of the keyboard, off of the laptop when typing. I wasn't sure how that was going to go but I found it to be a better typing experience on a table and in my lap. I'm thinking that some folks may not like the keyboard up front but it was an improvement for me.

Part 2 is the fact that the screen does not fold flat in the tablet configuration.

The Acer R7 Laptop is a bag of interesting. This innovative mixed bag of design and function is one of the most forward thinking designed laptops since the invention of the hybrid laptop. This is a long review so lets get to it.


I saw this thing sitting in the Open Box section of Best Buy when I was looking to upgrade my laptop. In fact, I noticed that there were several of these sitting in the Open Box section which should have been my first clue, but more on that in a little bit.
This machine is amazing, it fits the bill as I am an Engineer that travels very much. I needed a machine that I could use on the plane that would allow me to work comfortably. My biggest issue pertains to using a traditional laptop in Coach on the plane. The seats are so tight that if the person in front of me decides to recline, it forces my laptop closed. With that limited space, I end up shoving the laptop into my gut or using it at some weird position.

The Acer R7 new Ezel design allows me to not only use the laptop as a laptop, but I can move the screen forward if the dude in front of me wants to recline. In fact, I can lie the screen nearly flat and go from laptop to tablet. The Ezel design also allow me to flip the screen away from me and place the laptop in a Presentation Mode. If someone wants to know what your working on flip the screen over and show them. The screen also reorients itself.

Acer has swapped the touchpad position with the keyboard, so the touch pad is now in front of the keyboard. This means you have to reach over the keyboard to use the touchpad. Weird but necessary position as the screen can be placed over the touchpad allowing you to simply use the touchscreen instead.

The ability to place the screen right behind the keyboard keys is what makes the touchscreen really user friendly. The keyboard placement itself is also easier on the hands for typing. I can see how reading pdf files in "tablet mode" will also be really helpful, especially for material with tables that are often too small to read. I didn't realize until just a few minutes ago that I can turn this machine on its side to get a "portrait mode" for reading documents. I will be using this in a classroom where the adjustability will come in handy to more easily access the screen while standing and while the computer is placed on a tv cart shelf that's at about counter height. I'm excited about this machine. I've got the features of my Note 8 tablet merged into a very cool laptop.

I purchased mine from Best Buy because I needed it right away to replace a 2-year old Lenova that's got a failing hard drive.

Update: You'll need a mouse for this thing because the touchpad is a little weird (for me anyway) and the touchscreen doesn't always work for certain links I've tried getting into or that are too awkwardly spaced to click on with accuracy. I still will keep the 5 star rating because this thing is still an awesome machine and the touchscreen has worked for most things that I do. I thought I'd have issue with the lack of a 10-key pad, but the touchscreen keypad has worked just fine for everything I've done so far. Still, it's something to consider for people who do tons of data entry.
