Summary: It's amazing, Windows8 is great???? I know it changes the whole, whole ball game. I bought it to prove W8 would never go anywhere, was going to give it to my church if it went as expected. I'm not a fan boy and have used a lot of Apple products starting with the first iMac. My first OS was MS dos and MS has done a lot of dumb things, but this works. Enough steam, The Acer is great, price outstanding with touch, goofy place for pad, but for me it's perfect.
is a laptop of innovation, the best I've seen so far

Summary: It is an excellent computer the best I have purchased so far, all was left fascinated with my notebook, well I'm saving for another, the reason for which the purchase is the style, is spectacular and I began to investigate, I like the touch screen and its hinge is as if I had my tablet too, and the sound is very good with its audio technology 4 times normal, good Holiday them when they go to buy some product to investigate his doubts are removed I say the mouse pad which...
Summary: Bought because I wanted a light weight laptop to travel with. Good: Full HD and touchscreen. Bad: Battery life is a bit short for this. Product was a refirbished unit, but really looks brand new! Product came fast. Packing was new but was a bit weird to my eye. But unit was fine and works great. My first experience with Windows 8.
Laptop is not dependable. Don't go for this refurbished model.

Summary: Don't go for this refurbished model. The laptop turns off each time its moved even slightly. The only on-line suggestion is to turn the screws of the base tight, but that doesn't help for long. I'm stuck with it. Also, Acer does not give any warranty for this product. When I purchased it I thought I was getting it from Acer, but found out its not from them.
Awesome product, but no go for refurbished product

Summary: This laptop is absolutely amazing. I like the design a lot especially the hinge and pad position (I seldom use pad btw). I have no wifi issue as mentioned in many post, I think its just their router problems. The resolution and spec are owesome for this price. HOWEVER, I had problems with the machine. The machine would freeze when I moved the laptop, which most likely is hardware problem. Very frustrating, I have to return.
Summary: I bought a refurbished Aspire R7(it was practically new); and overall I am very pleased with it. The design is really striking and the flexibility of the system is truly amazing and useful. I often use the "kiosk" mode to watch streaming video, and the "tablet" mode for reading, media consumption, etc. I found the "wireless card issues" mentioned in many online reviews to be a myth.
Dont go for the Old Model, buy the new One, it has 4th Generation Processer

Summary: - Why I bought it Initially the Price of a New Machine was $899 but Acer's eBay store was offering it for $599 (a Refurbished one). I liked the product it's unique concept. - What I like most about it Acer's unique design of the Hinges and the cool feature of it turning to a Tablet. - What I dislike about it The Product has Faulty WiFi Card, the signals breaks and it decreses your speed, so if you are on a 20 MBps connection all you get is 2.
Summary: Ok I've read the reviews and the big complaint is that the mousepad is behind the keyboard . . . what? Sorry that's a plus for me, you don't have your palms interfering with the touchpad anymore. But the greatest feature is I can move the screen closer to my hands and the keyboard, I hate having to reach out to use normal touchscreen laptops. Yes it's a minor thing but all that reaching and holding your arm out adds up.
Pros: Screen closer to you, fast processor, big hard drive, converts to a tablet
Cons: Too big to hold like a tablet, moderate battery life
Summary: Excellent combination of a touchscreen tablet and a high performance business machine. I got this to allow me to work mostly at my desk with a high spec, and also to allow for touchscreen advantages in a tablet format for multimedia and also while travelling (working in a confined space on a plane or train for example). this is one of the very few laptops that has all the features I was looking for...high spec, great sound, versatility.
