Acer today at IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin) announced that its Aspire R7 notebook now includes the latest 4th generation Intel processor and an Acer Active Pen.
The new Acer Active Pen ensures that users can enjoy greater accuracy and a more comfortable feel when writing and drawing. The Acer Active pen uses electromagnetic induction technology and responds to varying degrees of pressure sensitivity like an actual pen, resulting in a greater range of pen strokes and more natural writing.
The Acer Active Pen can be used with gesture controls at the same time, so customers can for example resize a picture with the pinching gesture and adjust fine details with the pen.
Designed to provide the best environment for both touch and typing, the R7 features a repositioned keyboard and high-definition touchscreen mounted on a revolutionary “Ezel hinge” that allows it to flip, reverse, lie flat or float.
Unveiled in May, the Aspire R7 has won several awards for its revolutionary design, including the best Choice Award at Computex 2013, the Red Dot Award for product design, and the Computex d&i Award.
Acer also unveiled additional trendy colours for the Aspire E1 notebook line as well as a 10 point multi-touch display option with a range of graphic solutions for everyday computing.
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.
