So get a load of this: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Acer (via eBay) is offering the refurbished Aspire R7-571-6858 15.6-inch convertible laptop for $499.99 shipped. That’s half what you’d pay for a new one. What sets the R7 apart from other laptops? Two key things: the hinged display, which allows the screen to pivot in various configurations; and the touch pad, which is flip-flopped with the keyboard. In other words, if a traditional laptop has the keyboard “on top” and the touch pad on the bottom, here that layout is reversed.
