How to flip the notebook


It is possible that in five years we can not talk of tablets and PCs like we do today, but imagine the future we're headed is not easy. New York Today Acer has introduced this hybrid, the R7At first glance it looks like a laptop built backwards . Someone is confused and has placed the trackpad on the wrong side of the keyboard instead of on the keys. The decision is surprising but has its reason for being. The screen is actually hinged and tactile. The problem with current touchscreen laptops is that they can be uncomfortable to use. You have to have your hand extended and raised to be able to select what you want on the screen. What works for a device that is held in the hand-tablet-no one thought runs to support the thighs or table. R7 does not solve all the obstacles of such hybrid strategies but is well under way. One that is somewhat annoying, for example, is that pressing on a notebook screen, usually vibrate slightly, especially at the top, furthest from the hinge. With this design minimizes the R7  -hinge is in the central area of the screen, but still present. I could not try more than a few minutes, so I do not know if the idea of having the trackpad on the back of the keyboard is a hit or not , but in principle does not seem a terrible solution, for a simple reason: With the screen touch and the new Windows 8 interface using the pointer is not so important. When working on a table in the office or at home, for example, is likely to have at hand an external mouse, more comfortable. As I say, it is early to get a picture but my first feeling was that it was nonsense and after trying a few minutes longer look like such a crazy idea. There is something that works in the set. R7 goes on sale in the month of June from 999 euros (the price will vary depending on the chosen configuration) and the screen of 15.6 inches , can be folded flat over the keyboard facing the user, becoming a kind of Giant tablet complete, if somewhat heavy. Perhaps the solution to the problem of the clash between the tactile and the conventional PC does not have a unique way and this is one of several alternatives. May be reduced to a niche of users with specific needs. The truth is that in one way or another we will see more and get bolder in this space.

Cheaper yet













Another interesting product announced today: Iconia A1Android tablet is a similar size to Apple's iPad Mini, including the same resolution (1024 x 768) and ratio (4:3). Here Acer goes for broke. The tablet goes on sale in June at a price of 169 euros , lower even than the alternative of Google (Nexus 7), which has a smaller screen. The price is for the 8GB model but can expand memory capacity with SD.
