Notebook screen can face away from user, be used as tablet

Acer has revealed a new notebook with a floating touchscreen, one that it previously teased alongside Star Trek footage. The Aspire R7 holds its 15.6-inch 1080p multitouch display on an "Ezel" hinge, allowing it to be viewed in the normal notebook way, lying flat on a table, flipped to face away from the user, and also closed with the display facing out and making it resemble a tablet.

Inside the Aspire R7 is a low-voltage Intel Core i5 processor running at 1.8GHz, accompanied by 6GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive and 24GB solid state drive for storage, and four Dolby-powered 8-watt speakers which automatically reverse depending on the orientation of the screen. Around the casing are audio jacks, three USB ports, HDMI, and a converter port that supports VGA, Ethernet and USB, while Wi-Fi and Bluetooth add to the connectivity options.

The Aspire R7 will be available to purchase through Best Buy on May 17th for $1,000, with additional models to be announced in the coming weeks.
