PCMark 7 is a great utility for testing a PC's all-around capabilities. It tests all aspects of the computer, from graphics performance to hard disk performance, and attempts to put a score on it, which is not an easy task.
The Acer Aspire R7 produced a somewhat paltry 3951 score in PCMark 7. The only system that did worse is the ASUS S500C, which is another system that opted to use a hard drive over an SSD. The other Ultrabooks, which are equipped with SSDs, bested the score by 500 points or more.
Before you say that this is just a synthetic benchmark: My real-world perceptions back up the numbers. The R7 feels a bit slow and sluggish, which I would definitely attribute to the use of an HDD. Once you've gone SSD, it's nearly impossible to go back.

CrystalDiskMark is a disk benchmark software that allows us to benchmark 4K and 4K queue depths with accuracy.
The Aspire R7 manages a sequential read speed of just 103 MB/s. When you start lowering the amount of data read, the picture becomes even bleaker.
Write speeds were equally as disappointing; the R7 managed just 98.7MB/s sequential write.
