Acer America has launched the new Aspire R7-572, the second generation of this unique notebook, with 4th gen Intel Haswell CPU and support for an active stylus. The Ezel-Hinge allows the display to flip, reverse, lie flat or float above the keyboard to maximize usability. Here's more info on the new Aspire R7 models:

It also includes a volume control button, HDMI port, SD card reader, audio jacks, three USB ports, WiFi, Bluetooth and a convenient converter port supporting VGA, RJ45 and USB. For those who want connect to a big screen TV, WiDi makes it easy to connect wirelessly.

The R7 also includes a premium sound system featuring Dolby Digital Plus and four 2 watt speakers for a total of 8 watts. Because of its transformative design, the audio channels automatically reverse when switching modes, so sound is always perfect.

The R7-572 can be used with an optional Acer active stylus (sold separately), made by N-trig. Customers can write notes, markup documents or photos, draw pictures or make simple lists directly on the R7's high-definition touchscreen, just as if they were using regular pen and paper.
