Large, comfortable laptop
When used as a typical laptop, the Aspire R7 is comfortable due to its large size. The backlit keyboard is close and if you can get used to the trackpad location, the R7 is all business with Windows 8.
The display is gorgeous and high-resolution, and the touchscreen is great to use with Windows 8.
The hovering display
The innovative stand on the Acer Aspire R7 makes it possible to use the glossy display in lots of different positions. The configuration becoming my favorite is with the screen lifted up, "hovering" over the trackpad.
In this position, the display is easy to view and operate by touch. You can slide your hand under the display to use the trackpad, or ignore it altogether and just operate the system via the touch screen.
Presentations or movies, it's up to you
Lifting the screen up and flipping it over positions it for viewing from behind the laptop. This is a good configuration for giving presentations or for watching movies on the big, beautiful display.
