Acer Aspire Switch 12S SW7-272-M3A0 Convertible Review


Flexible. Acer's Switch 12S is a 12.5-inch detachable equipped with a bright, contrasty display and optional pen input. The Switch costs 1200 Euro (~$1330) - way too much in our opinion.

bright display with lots of contrast ; noiseless ; fast SSD ; keyboard dock

only 12-month warranty ; CPU and GPU throttling ; average run times

Acer Aspire Switch 12 S review


Acer's latest hybrid is a multi-trick pony

Premium metal build quality ; Thin and light ; Full-sized USB 3.0 ports

Buggy performance

The Acer Aspire Switch 12 S is a testament to Acer's ability to produce a thin 2-in-1 laptop with elegant style and uniquely engineered features.

Acer Aspire Switch 12 S review - hands on


4K display and a redesigned hinge that's great for typing - the Switch 12 S looks ideal for work and play

Acer has yet to reveal official prices or availability for the Switch 12 S, as it's still technically in the prototype stage. That means it will almost definitely be a while before it goes on sale, but if the final retail product doesn't deviate from...
