Acer Aspire Switch 12 Convertible Review

 

Standing ovation. The Acer Aspire Switch 12 design has surprised us in its flexibility and ability to be a very productive hybrid PC with a huge range of usage scenarios and processing capability.

Silent and fanless, Good screen, Flexible multimode design, Productive performance and keyboard, Digitizer pen-ready

Not a great consumer tablet due to weight

Reviewing the Acer Aspire Switch 12 hasn't been a quick job but it's been an enjoyable one. This multi-mode hardware can be used in a huge number of scenarios and it turns out that as a laptop it's one of the best on a lap! Not only are there many many...

Acer Aspire Switch 12 SW5-271 review – a different fanless laptop

 

The Acer Aspire Switch 12 is a sturdy built 2-in-1, a fast and efficient implementation of Intel's Core M hardware bundled with a good digitizer-enabled screen. Its form factor could be a deal-breaker for many though, as it leads to a lacking...

At the end of the day, the Acer Aspire Switch 12 is not a bad device, but after using it for the last week or so, I think it fails to excel either as a tablet or as a laptop, which people would actually expect from a 2-in-1. And that’s unfortunate,...

Acer Aspire Switch 12

 

Most of us are now familiar with two-in-ones and convertibles, but Acer's tried to take versatility to a whole new level with the Aspire Switch 12. Marketed as a 'five-in-one', you can use it as a laptop and a tablet, though its detachable keyboard and...

Acer Aspire Switch 12 review: A really interesting form factor, but there are some rough edges

 

We review the Acer Aspire Switch 12 which has an unconventional way of interacting using the detachable keyboard

The major thing going for the Acer Aspire Switch 12, is definitely its form factor. The detachable keyboard which can still be used to control the 2-in-1 is something unique, as so far the 2-in-1s we have seen require that the keyboard be connected to...

Acer Aspire Switch 12 hands-on review

 

A close look at one of Acer's first Intel Core M devices

The Aspire Switch 12 offers a fresh and innovative design in the Windows 8.1 laptop market and in our short experience with it, we found it fun to use with fast and responsive performance.

Acer Aspire Switch 12 SW5-271

 

I have selected good value for money as I bought it in black Friday weekend so I got a big discount. Don't think I would pay the full price.

Would have preferred if it came with a case and I had to get a mouse.
