The Acer Aspire R7-572-6423 desktop-replacement laptop still looks intriguing, but closer examination reveals a decent laptop bogged down by an awkward design.

Acer Aspire R7-572-6423

 

The Acer Aspire R7-572-6423 desktop-replacement laptop still looks intriguing, but closer examination reveals a decent laptop bogged down by an awkward design.

Lovely 1,920-by-1,080 resolution display is improved with N-Trig DuoSense technology and stylus support. Sound quality is surprisingly good. Hard drive offers 1TB of storage.

Performance, though improved over its predecessor, is not spectacular. Experimental design still fizzles out.

Acer has taken a step to fix this, including a foldable palmrest pad with the R7-572-6423 that can be set just in front of the keyboard to replace the missing palmrest. It sort of works, but the fact that an accessory has to be included to provide...

Acer Aspire R7-572

 

Great innovative design. Screen is excellent. Supplied pen works well too.

The swapped keyboard and trackpad may not be for everyone. Not particularly cheap for the spec, but you are paying for the great screen. The design is not for everyone, but it's perfect for my purpose.

The different positions possible with the screen are brilliant, and I like the fan vents at the back as easier to ensure not blocked if using on your lap

It's great quality, but quite heavy

Clever hinge makes the screen useful in many directions. Touch screen, track pad (out of the way so I don't touch it by accident), mouse and stylus all included. So good I bought another for my wife who loves it.

Slightly underpowered could do with more RAM

Acer Aspire R7-572

 

I loved the design, the touch screen and the windows 8 layout(although it takes a whole to get used to)

The wifi connection. Apparently it's an issue on these laptops (it comes up on 100's google searches) also it's a heavy laptop not very portable
