Acer's award winning R7 Ultrabook-convertible-tablet hybrid is getting a much anticipated update by way of new 4th Generation Intel Core processors. The new Haswell chips should improve battery life on the multi-functional notebook which is known for having four modes of use including regular notebook, Ezel mode, Pad and display. Aside from improving the architecture, Acer has also included the Acer Active Pen, so users can enjoy greater accuracy and a more comfortable feel when writing and drawing using the inductive stylus. Battery life is still expected to be subpar. Acer is including new apps that take advantage of this technology. Price is €999 and Canadian pricing has yet to be set for the notebook which will ship Q4 2013.
