Product Description

Acer Aspire R7-572 15.6-inch Touchscreen Notebook

The Acer Aspire R7-572's multi-mode convertible design allows you to get as close to the content as you want; use it like an ezel, a display, a pad or simply as a laptop -- whatever your content calls for. Combined with a 15.6-inch Full HD 1080p LED display, with ambient light sensor, the R7-572 features an Acer Ezel dual-hinge for one-handed conversion and calibrated touchscreen resistance. The audio channel output automatically reverses when the display is flipped, so you can listen to your favourite music or watch videos uninterrupted.

Notebook mode
Notebook Mode

The Aspire R7-572 offers the familiarity and power of a notebook combined with the flexibility and freedom of a tablet. You can connect your headphones, USB device, HDMI cable and more to one of the many ports on offer or work and browse the internet in the Notebook mode.

Ezel mode
Ezel Mode

Ezel mode lets you work where you want, and how you want -- seated or standing, at a desk or on your lap (or anywhere else, for that matter). Switch seamlessly between touchscreen and keyboard interaction to suit your needs. The best part: thanks to the Ezel hinge, you can adjust the screen in intuitive ways, giving a close touch experience.

Display mode
Display Mode

It’s all about immersing yourself in what’s on screen without any distractions or the keyboard getting in your way. To use Display mode, simply flip the screen over from Notebook mode and invite someone to join you for a movie or presentation. Sharing and collaborating is not only simple, enjoyable and straightforward -- it’s practically cinematic.

Pad mode
Pad Mode

Pad mode is ideal when typing isn’t top of mind. The screen folds down -- screen up -- and morphs into a pad, without giving up the robust performance of a notebook. The slight angle and smaller footprint make it more ergonomic and extremely adaptable. It’s also ideal for pure touch interactions like gaming, browsing, drawing, annotating and more -- ready when you are to go explore.

Close Enough to Touch

Ezel Hinge -- Powered by Dual-hinge Technology

The Acer Ezel hinge allows you to adjust the position and the angle of the screen as desired. The Ezel hinge is very stable in every mode even when the angle is just 45-degrees.

You can set the Aspire R7-572 to Ezel mode by pulling the touch display close to you -- switching between touchscreen, keyboard, and touchpad becomes seamless. Plus, the design that allows moving the touchpad above the keyboard means you don’t have to move backward when using the touchpad.

When typing isn’t your priority, the Aspire R7-572 works like an ergonomic digital pad. To turn your device to Pad mode, simply pull down the touchscreen with the screen up. The ergonomic 4-degree tilting angle fits your hands; ideal for browsing, writing and drawing.

Sometimes you just want a pure display to enjoy digital content. Simply flip over the screen, and the Aspire R7-572 becomes a Full HD touch display for enjoying and sharing content.

Dual-hinge Technology

The dual-hinge design assembles touch display and the main chassis, bringing the touch display close to you and allowing you to easily switch between create, browse and share scenarios.

Single-hand Switch Between Modes

You can open the touch display lid and switch between modes with one hand, as shown below:

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it 9 Jan 2014
By xeno
Size Name:8GB|Verified Purchase
I'm really pleased with my new Acer. The ability to move the screen to different positions really appeals to me and is very clever. I rarely use the touchpad - preferring to use a mouse when in laptop mode or touchscreen -and so I like the fact that the touchpad is well out of the way. With other laptops I was forever nudging the touchpad by mistake. The keyboard is very responsive and the sound quality excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is my third Acer convertible since 2002! 23 April 2014
Size Name:8GB|Verified Purchase
I originally purchased an Acer convertible in 2002 as I was delivering a lot of management training and I needed to have the ability to annotate Powerpoint presentations and the "electric pen" was brilliant.

My next Acer was a TravelMate convertible. This was very reliable and compact but it lacked an electric pen and, therefore, wasn't quite as useful.

The R7 captures the best of both worlds. The electric pen is included in the deal, unlike in the US where it is a $50 extra. The Touch Tools pointer is brilliant both as a visual aid and also as a working tool.

Battery life seems to be good and the quality of manufacture seems superb. I have never had a hinge problem with any of my Acers and this machine is the most solidly built one that I have had. I purchased a simple neoprene sleeve and it's a very snug fit which should keep the machine in pristine condition.

I was warned that upgrading the RAM could be tricky as the machine construction is quite complicated and not every technician would be able to dismantle and reassemble the unit properly. Therefore I went for the 1Tb / 8 Gb configuration ... to future proff the machine.

Overall, I'm very satisfied with this purchase and would highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic laptop 15 Jan 2014
Size Name:8GB|Verified Purchase
I really like the design of this laptop, does everything I needed it for. There are a lot cheaper laptops in regards to the technical specifications, but as I work on a laptop daily I wanted something extra, this certainly ticks the right boxes for me. The screen is amazing, and the mouse-pad behind the keys is a bonus (easier typing); the touch-screen does everything that is needed from the now redundant mouse-pad. Acer also sent the stylus pen (In america wasn't supplied) and a wireless mouse, so all in all, i'm a very happy customer. Highly recommend!

4.0 out of 5 stars RECOMMENDED 16 July 2014
Size Name:8GB|Verified Purchase
Really nice hybrid laptop. It amazes everyone with the functioning of the screen and nice actual screen resolution.

Works fast, excellent sound for watching movies and playing games.

Keyboard is a dream to use and backlight is a nice feature.

If I had to buy this again I def would.

Not 5 stars only because some games don't flip up the right way when the screen is flipped back.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, reliable and value for money. 2 July 2014
Size Name:8GB|Verified Purchase
The beautiful tilting touch screen (plus special pen), the awesome (and robust) design of the tilting mechanism, the high specs and the plenty ports makes this a brilliant machine for both work and light play. I have rarely used any of the desktops at work or at home since I got it in February 2014. It goes with me everywhere. Even my high spec I-pad has been pushed aside since the Acer R7 as it is so convenient to use esp. if in you still want the flexibility of backward compatibility with Windows-based programmes etc.

This machine is a workhorse. It is light enough to be taken everywhere but powerful enough to do serious work with apart from checking your calendar, web and e-mail. So far it has been proven a pleasure to use (I use mine with a small mouse and the touch screen) and very reliable. But most of all it is a beautiful laptop! Expect many heads to turn when you'll use it in meetings.

The only reason I did not give it a 5 star is that the plastic part of the cover scratches more easily than I expected - so bear that in mind when carrying it and some padding is strongly recommended. Still, this is nothing compared to the 'overall' package of value-for-money, pleasurable user experience and the beautiful design.

Well done to the designers of Acer for creating such a beautiful machine!
