Transformer Acer Aspire R7

Anyone who is tried of using a laptop with a touch-screen and the “eight” on board, familiar feeling of “breaking the pattern”. In addition to the usual touchpad and keyboard adds another touch screen – but what to do with the last is unclear. Why you need a touchpad, when there is a touch screen? Or why you need a screen if you have a touchpad? ūüôā


A very unusual form factor, Acer introduced in the face of notebook-transformer Acer Aspire R7.¬†The familiar touchpad receded into the background (and in the right sense of the word: it was moved to the keyboard), while the touch screen is on a special bracket Ezel Hinge leans close to the keyboard.¬†Such a regime, when the touchpad is hiding behind a screen, called Ezel Hinge.¬†Get something like a mobile candy bar, where switching between the keyboard and the touch screen no longer seems to be something which is “tearing Templates” (called Ezel mode).

Thanks Ezel Hinge you can do interesting things.¬†For example, the screen can be rotated by 180 degrees (image is automatically rotated.)¬†Most likely, even in Acer do not know when it might actually be released, but it looks cool.¬†ūüôā Do you want to make a huge tablet – no problem.¬†Return all to the traditional look of the notebook (except for the location of the touchpad)?¬†Easy.

Is it comfortable? Time will tell: gadget has only presented a thorough twist (and check the reliability of the bracket, which at first glance looks very strong). But for trying to get beyond the usual form factors and make the right laptop for stitch..
