We are at Computex 2015 taking a look at everything the event has to offer. We have been showing you a plethora of new devices and wanted to add Acer’s new 2-in-1 tablet to the list.
Enter the Acer Aspire Switch 10 V, a new higher-end version over the Switch 10. There’s no question that it’s better than the predecessor, but what we really want to find out is whether it’s good enough to take a spot in your bag.
Acer Aspire Switch 10 V specs
- Windows 8.1
- Intel Atom Z8300 X5 Cherry Trail processor
- 10.1-inch 1920x1200p display
- 2 GB of RAM
- 32 GB of internal storage
- Micro USB, Micro HDMI, keyboard dock port, USB 3.0, proprietary charging port, 3.5 mm headset jack
This 2-in-1 tablet is actually quite a stunning little device. It performs relatively well and should take care of most casual tasks. We would love to see a higher-end version with more RAM and storage, but that is another thing Acer is staying pretty quiet about.
What we do know is that this is a very well built device many of you will enjoy. The build quality is awesome, as the tablet has a metallic back. The experience doesn’t deteriorate when the tablet is docked into the keyboard, either. In fact, the whole thing is pretty solid.
We were surprised to find that Acer’s removable keyboard is very sturdy and doesn’t really bend when you apply reasonable force on it. We would go as far as saying they did a better job than ASUS did on their recent removable keyboards. We may not like the positioning and size of the shift keys, but that is a whole other story.
As it goes with most other tablets and laptops at Computex 2015, we don’t know anything about pricing and availability. This device comes pre-loaded with Windows 8.1, though, which means it should be ready to hit the market relatively soon.
The Acer Aspire Switch 10 V is more than an acceptable tablet/netbook. It has good power, a solid design and functionality of both a tablet and a laptop. Hopefully we will get to learn more about it soon, and you can be sure we will pass the knowledge on to you when that happens.
