Acer’s Aspire Switch series has become iconic for fans of tablet/laptop convertible computers. The manufacturer has just announced the brand new Acer Aspire Switch 11, alongside the Aspire Switch 10. The larger display is definitely nice, but what else can we find in this bad boy?
First, it’s important to mention there are two versions. The lower-end version comes with an 11.6-inch (1366x768p) display, an Intel Atom Z3745 quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, and up to 64 GB of internal storage.
The higher-end laptop does bring home the goods with an 11.6-inch (1920x1080p) display, an Intel Core i5 processor and up to 128 GB of internal storage. Both models run on Windows 8.1 and sport a 2 MP front-facing camera.
The device feels good and has a very comfortable keyboard. The keyboard dock is very light and uses a magnetic mechanism to attach and detach the screen part. This is much smoother than the mechanic solution most other manufacturers rely on.
That keyboard dock can be a little too light, though. The laptop actually falls back if you lean the screen back too much.
Those interested will have to wait a bit before getting their hands on one of these. It will be released this October in select American and European markets. Price is said to start at $399, making this a rather affordable laptop.
