When Acer has chosen the phrase “Redefining the computing experience” for the event in New York, in which he presented a series of new ultrabook and Windows 8 tablet and Android, was not joking and we had a glimpse in this teaser video released some time ago . In preview, directly from the Big Apple, we can show you the pictures and the first video of the new convertible ultrabook Aspire R7 , a premium device that has more than one source of interest and real innovation.
Let’s start looking, well-kept, thanks mainly to the frame completely made of aluminum alloy with polished finish, with a modern design with clean lines and sleek but soft at the same time. But the main novelty lies mainly in the hinge (called Ezel from Acer) on which is mounted the display. As can be noted by observing the cover in fact this is a real support similar to that of the monitor, but in this case is completely collapsible and integrated in a housing formed within the same cover. In this way the ultrabook can take different configurations. In addition to classic laptop can in fact be transformed into a tablet and even All-In-One , precisely because the screen can be positioned away from the piano keyboard and tilted according to our taste and our needs, assuming that the appearance of a fixed location.
Finally, always through the same mechanism, it is also possible to leave the display suspended above the keyboard to facilitate the use of a pennin or, or place it facing the contrary, as if it were the stand of a simple monitor. In short, the possible solutions are so many lelemento but the most important is that, despite the potentially cumbersome mechanism, the thickness dell’Aspire R7 content remains within the limits set by Intel for its ultrabook. Acer has also also invert the position of the keyboard and touchpad , with the latter positioned in the upper part of the base.
With a touch screen available in fact the touchpad becomes less and less essential in modern ultrabook convertible and will be used less frequently than the keyboard, which is thus in a more comfortable position. Be noted, finally, that the audio system provides the ability to automatically reverse the audio channels, in order to maintain the correct correspondence with the two speaker regardless of the orientation that we are giving to the device, which can then be rotated smoothly. While watching a movie or a video that is not right we will get a sound that was previously left only because in the meantime we have rotated the handset.
Remarkable then also the technical characteristics. The display for example, is a 15.6-inch multitouch IPS with resolution full HD , while inside there is a dual core processor Intel Core i7-3537U Ivy Birdge type ultra low voltage, with an operating frequency of 2 GHz, supported by as many as 12 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD, while the graphics are assigned to a dedicated video card Nvidia GeForce GT 750M with core Kepler, which ensures good performance even with the latest videogame titles. It will be integrated Dolby Home Theater technology and Screen Grasp, for remote management. With operating system Windows 8 Pro, Aspire R7 weighs 2.5Kg and is 28.5 mm thick.
The price of the Acer Aspire R7 should be fairly high, 999 Euros , but in our opinion absolutely tailored to their unique hardware that distinguish it. At the time the Taiwanese company has not communicated a date debut on the market, but the first rumors speak ofJune in Europe. Stay tuned, because we are collecting video and live photos of this product that you re-present a new article! Stay Tuned!
