Computex Taipei 2013 - We sat in on Acer's Computex 2013 press event today, where we heard a bunch about the direction of the company. They talked about their well-received Aspire R7 device, which has a wicked hinge design and its keyboard pushed to the front of the device.

Acer's Iconia R7 is a 15.6-inch device with a Full HD (1920x1080) display, an Intel Core i5-3337U (still an Ivy Bridge processor) which is clocked at 1.8GHz, with a 24GB SSD for the OS side of things and taking care of your storage is a 500GB, but just 5,400RPM HDD. The hinge design is awesome, something we will take a closer look at in the coming days at Computex, that's for sure. The keyboard design being closer to your hands actually makes a touchscreen-capable machine worthwhile, something I've been wanting for a while now. Acer did some good work with the Aspire R7, that's for sure.
