Acer Switch 3 review


The Acer Switch 3 is inexpensive, but it's also cheap.

Low price ; Solid build quality

Flimsy stand ; Disappointing stylus ; Slow processor ; Slow hard drive

The Acer Switch 3 is lightweight, affordable, and runs Windows. But it’s not great at taking advantage of what Windows offers, lacking the power needed to use Windows-specific productivity apps with any real success.

Acer Switch 3


For half the price of Microsoft's least-expensive Surface Pro with keyboard cover and stylus, Acer's Switch 3 offers an appealing 12.2-inch detachable with a winning keyboard and USB-C connectivity.

Comes with keyboard cover and stylus. Typist-friendly keyboard cover. USB-C and USB 3.0 ports.

Underwhelming battery life. 64GB versus rivals' 128GB of storage. Tiny, difficult-to-push power button.

Better battery life, more storage, and a lower price help the Lenovo Miix 320 retain its Editors' Choice crown among budget detachable hybrids, but the Acer Switch 3 is a first-class contender with a superior keyboard and a larger (12.2 versus 10.1...

Acer Switch 3 SW312 (Pentium N4200) Convertible Review


An elegant convertible! Acer has presented a new convertible in 12-inch format - the Switch 3. Thanks to its versatility, the convertible is supposed to be a great choice both for business and private use. Find out whether Acer reached its goals in our...

fancy design ; stable kickstand ; lightweight ; good input devices ; does not heat up excessively ; display with stable viewing angles ; comes with keyboard dock ; fair price

not a lot of ports ; very reflective touchscreen ; no expansion options ; SSD with 64 GB ; no backlit keyboard ; hardly any security features

The Acer Switch 3 is a stylish convertible without being too flashy. The Intel Pentium N4200 interacts well with the other components; its performance is not mind-blowing, but it is definitely good enough for everyday Office work. The Acer Switch 3...

Acer Switch 3 (SW312-31) review – modestly priced 2-in-1 with a beautiful screen


Today we are looking at a more different type of product. A tablet computer, to be more precise. These devices are on the top of the size/portability/versatility table, and that's why we are …

Aluminum design and sturdy chassis;Bright Full HD IPS panel;External keyboard and a stylus in the package;Good battery life;Almost no sign of thermal throttling

Mediocre hardware;Poor speakers;Brightness is PWМ-controlled for all levels (fixed by our profiles)

Acer Swift 3 2017 review: A mid-range thin and light laptop with good performance, but it's not as good as its cheaper predecessor.

Quality, all-metal design ; Backlit keyboard ; Decent performance ; Good touchpad

Mediocre screen quality for the money ; Reflective screen isn't bright enough ; More expensive than predecessor

Acer Switch 3


A good-value convertible with a few performance niggles. Acer Switch 3.

Affordable asking price ; Crisp, bright screen ; Decent keyboard

Limited performance ; Could use more connections ; Tricky to use on your lap

Anyone who needs a Surface-style convertible for basic everyday use that won’t break the bank should consider Acer’s Switch 3.

Acer Switch 3 review


A Surface Pro competitor at half the price

Active digitiser ; Excellent build quality ; Great screen

Tricky hinged stand ; No good for games

Far cheaper than the Surface Pro and a little less capable, but the Acer Switch 3 is perfect if you're not looking to use high-end apps
