/// Acer Aspire R7 Gives New Meaning to "All-in-One" PC

May 3, 2013  |  All Things Digital

They put the trackpad where ? That was my first thought when I heard about Acer’s new Aspire R7 Windows 8 notebook. Unveiled today at an event in New York, the Aspire R7 is a Windows 8 laptop, but its design is unique. Part notebook, part all-in-one PC, part tablet, the machine features a 15.6-inch, 1,920 by 1,080-pixel touchscreen that’s mounted on an “Ezel” hinge so you can reposition the display to your liking. You can angle it to use it like a regular laptop, flip the screen over to watch movies, or lay it on top of the keyboard to use it like a tablet. Acer also switched the location of the keyboard and trackpad: The trackpad is now located at the top of the laptop, with the backlit keyboard just below it. WTF, right? Acer’s thinking is that you can simply angle the display right to the edge of the keyboard, and use the touchscreen rather than the trackpad to launch applications, click on items and so on.

The rest is here:
