Acer ConceptD 7 Ezel Pro Review

It’s not entirely true to say that there’s nothing quite like the Acer ConceptD 7 Ezel Pro. But it’s a new alternative to the masses of clamshell laptops. The main attraction is a dual-hinged display. While it’s not entirely unique, it’s very well executed and allows for a whole new world of ergonomic and typing options that you probably didn’t realize existed. Add the included Wacom EMR input pen and you have an intriguing productivity tool for digital artists and other content creators.

Hinged aside, there is much more interest. The 15.6-inch touchscreen is fully 4K and Pantone validated. There’s also a beefy eight-core Intel CPU, albeit a generation or two old, and proper dedicated Nvidia graphics. This is a true portable workstation, although at around 2.5kg the element of portability has been compromised in the quest for functionality.
