Yes the company which started the game of Windows 8 in a negative and not so positive comments by its CEO is pretty impressive in its product line for the same !!

The present one "Acer Aspire R7" is another ingenious piece of machinery !! and is utterly practial ( although t little bulky to carry around always )

But it is a stellar thng and a total redesign of the Laptop and tablet design features.. !!

Featuring a Full HD 1920◊1080 touch screen, the Acer R7 was made for the new computing lifestyle, which increasingly combines touching and typing. With a repositioned keyboard and a revolutionary ďEzel HingeĒ that moves the display forward and into different positions, the R7 makes the combination of touching the screen and using the keyboard more intuitive and natural. Its ergonomic design allows users to explore and determine their own preferred way to interact with technology.

A full HD 1920 x 1080 touchscreen display.
An Intel Core i5 processor.
6GB of memory.
A 500GB hard drive and 24GB SSD.

Spot on!

People mostly don't carry a laptop that much. Just prop it on a table and use it. But its not so much useful for individual use.
But good to turn the laptop design on its head.

That's a really innovative design by Acer. If the hinge is strong enough to sustain a few accidental drops on the floor, this product will help Microsoft sell its next operating system.

Nice ad and concept! At this price, seems like a decent package as well.

Re: Acer, Yes Acer Launches One of Th Efirst New Designs for Windows 8

this is good. but 6GB of ram is overkill for this. personally i would have preferred one with an AMD APU specially since this is just a dual core i5 with hyper threading, and a heavily power optimised one at that :/

APUs would have made for a much more balanced system. I dont suppose people will be doing encoding and definitely not gaming on this, so the i5 is kinda useless just like the 6GB ram.

And the Acer Aspire P3 is a economic BOMB !!! read this..
In contrast to the Aspire R7, the P3 is basically a reworking of the Iconia W700 tablet from last year, only with a shell that makes the result very similar to Microsoft’s Surface Pro with its own variant of the Type Cover. There are a few immediately notable differences, however, like the standard 1366x768 resolution instead of 1080p—but thankfully the panel technology is still IPS. The Aspire P3 comes with either a Core i3 or i5 processor, 2GB or 4GB RAM, and a 60GB or 120GB SSD.

The weight of the tablet is 790g (1.74 lbs.) while the keyboard cover nearly doubles the total weight with an additional 600g (1.32 lbs.), so the whole tablet/Ultrabook ends up being somewhat heavy at 1.39kg (3.06 lbs.) The tablet portion measures 295.4mm x 190.7mm x 9.95mm (11.63” x 7.51” x 0.39”), and the keyboard cover is slightly wider and taller and adds another 9.8mm to the thickness. Other aspects include a 40Wh battery that’s good for up to six hours of battery life, 720p front-facing camera, 5MP rear-facing camera, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, micro HDMI, and a single full-size USB 3.0 port.

The base model P3 is available immediately with an MSRP of $800, so again this is very much a Surface Pro alternative. I would assume the $800 model comes with a 60GB SSD, 2GB RAM, and a Core i3 CPU. Acer doesn’t list an MSRP for the higher spec model, but $1000+ would seem likely.

Re: Acer, Yes Acer Launches One of The first New Designs for Windows 8

at the equivalent price i might chose the surface pro.
the point is to avoid the second device altogether. Not counting the mobile phone which i intend to keep mobile, not a ginormous "get new pants with bigger pockets" phablet.

Re: Acer, Yes Acer Launches One of The first New Designs for Windows 8

The Surface pro is the best choice but the problem is that MS is not launching it in India.. or when they would launch it..
the tiome would be of Surface pro 2 !! so we are a under weighted and non important country for them..
that can only mean that we get to shoose some other brands only.
