Acer to auction Limited Edition Star Trek Aspire R7 for charity

Star Trek fans with a philanthropic heart may be intrigued by the Acer Aspire R7 “Star Trek Into Darkness” Limited Edition Package, which will go up for auction via eBay starting June 14.

Acer and Paramount have put their creative minds together to come up with the Star Trek-inspired Aspire R7 Limited Edition notebook.  Only 25 of these Limited Edition units have been produced, but none were made available to the public, until now.

The Aspire R7 Limited Edition comes with Intel’s 3rd generation Core i5 processor, a 15.6-inch 1080p touchscreen, a 24GB SSD along with a 500GB platter drive, and Windows 8 to boot.  Along with its Star Trek-inspired curves, the notebook also comes with “Ezel” hinge, which allows the screen to flip, reverse, lie flat or float.
