Acer Aspire R7

Verge Review

I think I'm going blind. I've never had glasses, and always kind of liked being the guy with perfect vision, but I'm pretty sure I'm going blind. Ten times a day I catch myself craning my neck toward my laptop screen because a website's text is too small, and is that an I or an L? It's worrisome. But for the last couple of weeks, instead of leaning in toward my laptop I just brought my laptop to me. I've been using the Acer Aspire R7, the Windows 8 laptop that has a "floating touchscreen"...

    Acer Aspire R7 is designed for Windows 8. The hinge design is one of the best I find so far and it's one of the main reason why I choose this in preference to Lenovo Yoga concept. The other reason is the value for money. For its price you get a great Full HD touch display with solid build quality. The speakers is good but slightly below my expectation. Connectivity is average for it's class. However, Acer do provide a proprietary converter port to satisfy most of my needs. This machine performs well as you'll come to expect from an Intel Core i5 with it's integrated graphics chip. All in all it's a great looking laptop that I'll be confident to take to any coffee shop.
