Acer Aspire Switch 10 Takes on Lenovo's Three-In-One Tablet/Laptop

By Kat Hannaford on at

Given Lenovo's been the only company to do a three-in-one combo outfit justice, Acer's Aspire Switch 10 is a smart move for the company given Lenovo's Yoga tablet success. Capable of pulling into a laptop mode, tablet mode, display mode or tent mode (which is, err, actually four modes, Acer), the 10-inch device will appeal to those same people who like a device for both work and play.

Running Windows 8.1 with up to 64GB of storage and 2GB of RAM on an Intel Atom Bay Trail quad-core processor, it weighs 0.59kg (1.29lb) and measures 8.9mm thick when in tablet mode, or 1.17kg (2.38lb) and 20.2mm when attached to the keyboard dock, meaning it's a touch slimmer though not as light as Lenovo's nearest model, the Yoga 11S.

Display-wise, the 10.1-inch screen is only 1366 x 768 rez.

On sale late May for 349 Euros; the UK price isn't yet known.
