First look at the notebook-transformer Acer Aspire R7
The first glance at the presented at the Recent global press conference, Acer notebook-transformerAcer Aspire R7 Is bright because of the cognitive dissonance "wrong" place the touchpad to the keyboard. There is an overwhelming desire to swap them or rearrange the display unit to its rightful place - far away from the touchpad and closer to the keyboard. Finally getting used to the new configuration of the operating panel for a few hours acquaintance and failed, maybe it can make the future owners of the original transformer.
However, mess with the authorities is not the most interesting feature of the Acer Aspire R7. The real highlight of the device - steel "frame" allows you to orient the display unit at any reasonable angle through the ability to not only tilt the screen, but also raise it above the operating panel.
In the "classic" frame position hidden in a groove on the reverse side of the display module, the upper part of the groove remains open to allow transformation into the tablet mode. As can be clearly seen in the photo, the display unit is a bit shorter than the operation panel and, much more Importantly, is thicker than the typical modern cap premium laptops._
One edge of the frame is attached to the rear side of the casing Acer Aspire R7, The second - to the middle of the aforementioned groove, trimmed in black plastic, which protects the metal parts of the structure from scratch. Slightly tilt the screen of the situation presented in the photo you go to a demo, well, after putting it on the other side of the operation panel will get a tablet.
Because of the design features of the hinge display unit does not turn tightly pressed to the operation panel, so take Acer Aspire R7 For the tablet will not work if they wanted to. The only advantage in this case is the slope of the touch screen to a user, which has a positive impact on the ergonomics of the device when working at a desk.
As we mentioned, the additional degree of freedom of the frame-hinge provides a huge amount of options display orientation (by the way, very tight hinge, so that the structure in any of your position does not "hang out" and do not outweigh). However, to exaggerate the practical value of such a possibility is not necessary, since the lion's share of the time you will enjoy the two or three most convenient option, the number of those that could be obtained with less original hinge.
And finally, here it is - the same condition Acer Aspire R7, Because of which by and large cities all kitchen garden with the transfer of the touchpad keyboard. The lower part of the display unit is positioned close to the top edge of the keyboard, covering a standard touchpad. In this case, the keyboard and screen are much closer to the fingers of the user interface and control rests with the touch screen, both literally and figuratively pushing the touchpad on the back burner. This usage model is quite handy, but if you are not ready to replace the good old touchpad on the touch screen, then drag it to have too far.
Set of connectors with Acer Aspire R7 Is quite standard in the presence of three USB-ports (two of which with USB 3.0 and one with charging when the laptop is turned off), HDMI-out and a slot for memory cards SD. Of not quite normal - the presence of the hardware volume control buttons and the lack of an optical drive. The base case is finished softtach-plastic and contains two metal plates over the speakers. By the way, the speaker system contains just four total speaker output of 8 watts.
