Star Trek meets Acer for awesome Aspire R7 notebook


Acer has teamed up with Paramount Pictures to develop a limited edition Aspire R7 notebook, which celebrates the release of the film “Star Trek Into Darkness” that looks really cool.

The company only created 25 of these touch-enabled notebooks and is now offering up one of them via eBay as part of an auction package that will benefit charities.

The Acer Aspire R7 “Star Trek Into Darkness” Limited Edition Package includes the notebook that has been housed in a stainless steel Star Trek logo with sand-blast finish and polished surface, along with an R7 protective sleeve with Star Trek logo.  It also includes a “Star Trek Into Darkness” film poster signed by the film cast, special “Star Trek Into Darkness” content such as wallpapers and videos, Star Trek Soundtrack, a download of Star Trek: The Video Game, and unique “Star Trek Into Darkness” product packaging with a Limited Edition Certificate of Authenticity from Acer and Paramount Pictures.

This notebook would make any Star Trek fan jealous and those who are up for trying to win the auction can check it out at http://www.ebay.com/theonlyone. Acer says that all proceeds will be donated to Save the Children and The Mission Continues charities.

“Acer is giving one lucky person in the world the opportunity to become the sole owner of the Acer Aspire R7 ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Limited Edition Package,” said Hugues Gontier, senior director of marketing, Acer America.  “We know this extremely rare Limited Edition will be a treasured prize for the winner, and it will also help two worthy charities further their missions of empowering military veterans and helping children in need.”


The notebook features a repositioned keyboard and an HD touchscreen mounted on an “Ezel” hinge that allows it to flip, reverse, lie flat or float, and pretty much look like a ship. The R7 features a 3rd generation Intel Core i5 processor, 15.6-inch full HD (1920×1080) touch screen, large 500GB hard drive with 24GB SSD and Windows 8.

In addition to the Acer Aspire R7 Star Trek Limited Edition Package, Acer will also auction two additional “Star Trek Into Darkness” film posters signed by the cast, offering fans other unique collectibles and increasing the charitable proceeds.
