Aspire R7 – A touch more apps with active pen support
With four modes of operation, the R7 can easily be used as a traditional notebook, a table top pad, a display, or switched into “Ezel” mode, allowing the screen to float over the keyboard at various angles. Whether sitting or standing, at a desk or outdoors, users can always find the most suitable and comfortable way to use the R7, seamlessly transitioning from one mode to the other, from touching to typing, then from writing to drawing.
The Ezel Hinge makes it easy to flip the 15.6-inch full HD 1920 x 1080 touchscreen around to share visuals, games and more with others. The dual hinge technology allows for single-hand switching between modes and keeps the display rock-steady when touched. The keyboard is closer to the edge of the chassis, making typing more comfortable since there is no need to stretch your arms over palm rest and touchpad, keys fall naturally under the fingers and typing becomes more relaxing.
