Acer recommends Windows 8.
The Ezel™ hinge works just right: it provides low resistance for converting the Aspire R7 into four modes with just one hand, and higher resistance so the touchscreen stays steady when you use it. Work with the Aspire R7 at your desk as a notebook, flick it into display mode for sharing, or use it as a pad for drawing.
Ezel™ mode brings the touch display closer to you, so you don't have to reach across your desk to use it. Just pull the display up and out, where it can float over the keyboard. Having the display that much closer makes switching between touch control and typing that much easier.
The Aspire R7 delivers awesome sights and sounds, in every mode. The Full HD display makes details stand out, and four powerful speakers plus Dolby® Digital Plus™1 blast four times the acoustic power of conventional notebooks. In addition, audio channels automatically reverse when switching modes, so stereo sound is always perfect.
Use Acer Touch Tools on your Aspire R7 to enjoy handwriting. The AccuFinger tool gives you extra-precise touchscreen input so you can work efficiently even without a keyboard or mouse. Plus, with the Acer Active Pen1 you can perform touch gestures, as well as write or draw with realistic strokes and turn your captured memories into works of art in MemoryBinder.
