Small business tycoons that prefer a larger screen but just as much flexibility should check out the Acer Aspire R7 notebook. This laptop features a 15.6-inch touch screen mounted on Acer’s exclusive Ezel-Hinge that allows the display to flip, reverse, lie flat or float above the keyboard to maximize usability.
The optional Acer active stylus makes the notebook’s movable display even more useful: Write notes, mark up documents or photos, draw pictures or make simple lists directly on the R7's screen, just as if you were using regular pen and paper. The active stylus works with Microsoft Office applications, Adobe Photoshop and Autodesk Sketchbook, among others.
A Best Buy-exclusive model, the R7-572-6423, will be available online and in stores in early December for $899.99, featuring a fourth-generation Intel Core i5-4200U processor, 8GB of memory and a 1TB hard drive.
