Acer Launches its latest Folding Ultrabook Laptop Aspire R7 ,

Acer Announces Weird Folding Laptop With The Trackpad In The Wrong Place - 


Acer announced a new  laptop that looks more liker a startship and less like a computing device 
 the  Aspire R7 .The ultra book  R7 is a bizarre hybrid of laptop, desktop, and tablet that flips and folds its way out of and into each category. It’s essentially a portable, multi-touch all-in-one PC.

The R7, which starts at $1,000, comes with a 15.6-inch HD touchscreen display, which, along with its trademark “Ezel” hinge, pretty severely limits it in the portability category. The  Aspire R7   goes on sale  on May 17 ,2013


One of the innovations of this laptop is its Ezel hinge design. The Ezel hinge is a flexible strip anchoring the display, and allows the display to sit vertically on the base, lie flat over it, or be flipped 180 degrees to float over the keyboard in "Ezel" mode. 


 The laptop also features an auto-reverse audio interface that moves the sound in whatever way the screen is oriented. The screen itself is an IPS (In-Plane Switching) display with a 1,920-by-1,080 resolution and 10-finger touch functionality

The Making Of a " Intel Inside" in Ultrabook

The list of no-nos for the thinnest ultrabooks is lengthy, according to an "engineering estimate" published by Intel recently.Ultrabooks have been the brainchild of Intel , which has seen its  "Processor "that used to make laptops, Netops and Desktops, slowly gets replaced by "Tablets"
According to CNet ,The specs for the thinnest of the thin laptops (15mm, 0.6 inch) shake out this way: no to the VGA port, "slim" 2.5-inch drives (7mm) are out, 18650/16650 batteries won't cut it, soDIMM memory, negative. And no "standard thermal solutions." (See charts below.)
Intel is more forgiving for 18mm (0.7-inch) and 21mm (0.82-inch) ultrabooks. (The latter 21mm category, for all intents and purposes, is not really an ultrabook but just a thin laptop.)


In the charts above, red means the component will not fit in the "stack-up," according to Intel. Yellow means "may not fit...without other trade-offs or customization." And green means that the component will fit. (Note that GFRP in the top chart stands for "graphite fiber-reinforced plastic."

Intel requires manufacturers to meet certain specifications in order to market a laptop as an Ultrabook. These requirements change with each release of Intel's mobile platform.
