Acer Aspire Switch 10 review

 

The Acer Switch 10's thin profile, long battery life and low price make for an attractive package.

, we pointed out several factors that are holding them back, including a lack of ideal display size, so-so performance, and Windows itself. Acer’s Aspire Switch 10 does not address any of these problems and, as a result, it’s a bit flawed from the start.

Review: Acer Aspire Switch 10 Special Edition

 

Last summer, Acer dropped a capable, if simplistic, budget Windows tablet called the Aspire Switch 10. Nothing fancy, but a fine effort to bring the basics to the masses at a price everyone could like.

Super cheap at $350. Considerably brighter screen than previous model, plus slightly longer battery life. Bundled with a free 16GB MicroSD card

Incredibly slow, to the point where it impacts productivity. Overload of shovelware generates a flood of pop-ups. First unit we received crashed and burned during testing, had to be replaced

Or maybe I’m just not understanding what Acer meant by calling this a “Special” edition.

Acer Aspire Switch 10 review

 

There are many 10-inch and 11-inch hybrids to choose from right now if you've got about $400 to spend and realistic expectations of performance and storage capacity. Recent versions from Lenovo, Dell, and HP all offer Atom or Pentium-powered...

The Acer Aspire Switch 10 has a hybrid mechanism that actually works, and it has a decent keyboard and touchpad for such a small body.

The component-filled top half makes the system top heavy and prone to tipping over backwards. Performance feels sluggish for all-day use, and the default 32GB SSD will be too small for many.

The Acer Aspire Switch 10 is a budget hybrid that skips the more-common fold-back or button-clasp hinges and instead attaches its screen via a magnetic connection. It shares the same hardware limitations as other small hybrids, but can be easier to use.

Review: Acer Aspire Switch 10 Special Edition — a small hybrid laptop

 

Convertible laptops have come a long way in the past couple years, deviating from the original floppy hingeless designs that are still too common in favor of a hinged, sturdy keyboard. This allows the same portability of a snap-free display while also...

Acer Aspire Switch 10 Special Edition is a perfectly lovely laptop for everyday needs. When used as a laptop, it functions perfectly and doesn’t betray the fact that it has a removable display. The tablet portion is especially lovely, particularly with...

Acer upgrades the Switch hybrid with a new look

 

The Acer Switch line of hybrids was one of our favorites early on in the Windows 8 era, because this low-cost line kept its screen and keyboard connected via a magnetic hinge, which was much easier to use than the physical latches many of the early...

The R11 will come with either Intel Pentium or Celeron processors, and only a 1,366x768 resolution display. With lower-end specs like that, it's not surprising that it only cost $249 to start when it's released in July in the US (or €349 in Europe in...

Review: Acer Aspire Switch 10 (SW5-012-17XE)

 

Acer's 10 inch Windows tablet hasn't been updated since Windows 8 first came out, and that was two years ago, so what has Acer been cooking up, and does it have the potential to replace your portable PC?

An interesting take on the multi-mode hinge; Keyboard has a 500GB hard drive inside; Tablet storage can be upgraded with microSD;

Screen has a relatively low resolution; Battery is pretty mediocre; 32GB option has virtually no storage (14GB) when out of the box; Magnets are a touch too strong, and you'll find the tablet won't always line up properly when attached to the dock;...

Perfect mobile work solution (I returned my Surface Pro 3 for it)

 

I love this little guy: As I mention in the summary I returned the Surface Pro 3 that I bought at the same time because I found myself using the Acer more.

Size, Speed, Utility, Price

It's not a Surface Pro 3; but it's 1/3 the price.
