Acer Aspire R7 review: a flexible form factor at a reasonable price

The Acer Aspire R7 is a unique take on the Windows 8 laptop, with an adjustable display and an attractive hinge design. And, at $1,000, it's also a pretty good deal.

Pros
  • Innovative design, well-built
  • Bright 1080p display
  • Good specs for the money
Cons
  • Cramped keyboard, awkwardly placed touchpad
  • Unimpressive battery life
  • Relatively heavy
  • Only one configuration right now
