Acer Unveils Aspire Switch 10 Notebook and Tablet in One

The combination 10.1-inch notebook and tablet features a detachable keyboard design, and is powered by an Intel Atom (Bay Trail T) quad-core processor.

Acer has unveiled its 2-in-1 Acer Aspire Switch 10 that’s a notebook and tablet combined in one flexible device with four modes for touch, typing, viewing, and sharing. The smart device features a magnetic detachable Acer Snap Hinge design for transition between modes, latch-free keyboard docking, and optional additional storage capabilities.


  • Notebook mode — as a fully functional notebook PC with keyboard and Precision Touchpad
  • Pad mode — as a tablet for browsing the Internet, viewing movies, and having everything in your hand
  • Display mode — switch the screen to show content, such as a presentation file in meetings or sharing photos with friends
  • Tent mode — for confined spaces while travelling such as an airplane cabin or on a side coffee table

Acer Snap Hinge

The Acer Switch 10 features a magnetic detachable design for latch-free docking. The Acer Snap Hinge includes two hooks to firmly connect the tablet to the keyboard, plus a 2-way connector that holds the tablet for convenient two-sided viewing. The tablet can be plugged or released (by lifting) from the dock with a magnetic force capable of holding 2.8 kg (6.2 lb.) in weight.

Portable Design

The Aspire Switch 10 measures less than 8.9 mm thin (0.35 inches) in tablet mode and 20.2 mm (0.44 inches) with the keyboard dock. It weighs 0.59 kg (1.29 lb.) for the tablet only and 1.17 kg (2.58 lb.) for the tablet and keyboard. The 10.1-inch display (1366 x 768 pixels) with IPS technology provides wide viewing angle of up to 178-degrees.

With up to 64GB of storage and 2GB of RAM, the Aspire Switch 10 is powered by an Intel Atom (Bay Trail T) quad-core processor. Windows 8.1 includes several intuitive features, such as InstantGo that keeps data and apps up-to-date even when the screen is off by maintaining an Internet connection along with an efficient power-saving feature. The device comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013.

Pricing and Availability

The Acer Aspire Switch 10 will be available in late May with prices starting at $379.99 USD.
