First Impressions: An affordable convertible tablet for the masses

There's nothing radically new about the Acer Aspire Switch 10, but versatility and price will make it attractive to many people out to buy a tablet that's already prepped to let you do serious work on. There are some minor design and build worries, but...

The £300 Windows hybrid that's bending backwards to please you

This seriously flexible hybrid is Acer's best tablet yet

Acer Aspire Switch 10 review

 

The PC era is on its deathbed and manufacturers are reacting in experimental and interesting ways to evolve the market. The Acer Switch 10 is a multi-positional laptop-meets-tablet device, and while it's far from the first device to proposition such a...

Affordable Windows 8.1, decent screen viewing angle, magnetised docking mechanism works well, multi-position for varied use

Not as elegant as Lenovo Yoga solution, not HD resolution, deep trackpad depress, trackpad too far user-side, top-heavy in laptop form

Although the Acer Aspire Switch 10 doesn't offer any striking new innovations, it will hook its customers in from a price perspective. Because this device ticks enough boxes to see all out war between itself and the Asus T100. If you're after Windows...

When we see the Aspire brand we immediately think laptops. But Acer is on a mission to change in 2014, as the "four in one" Acer Aspire Switch 10 can attest.

Acer Aspire Switch 10 review

 

A budget laptop-tablet hybrid

Solid battery life ; Vibrant screen ; Nicely priced

Cheap build quality ; Unimpressive benchmark scores ; Acer bloatware

An affordable hybrid tablet with reasonable battery life that's a solid choice for basic tasks.

Acer Aspire Switch 10 review

 

There are many 10-inch and 11-inch hybrids to choose from right now if you've got about $400 to spend and realistic expectations of performance and storage capacity. Recent versions from Lenovo, Dell, and HP all offer Atom or Pentium-powered...

The Acer Aspire Switch 10 has a hybrid mechanism that actually works, and it has a decent keyboard and touchpad for such a small body.

The component-filled top half makes the system top heavy and prone to tipping over backwards. Performance feels sluggish for all-day use, and the default 32GB SSD will be too small for many.

The Acer Aspire Switch 10 is a budget hybrid that skips the more-common fold-back or button-clasp hinges and instead attaches its screen via a magnetic connection. It shares the same hardware limitations as other small hybrids, but can be easier to use.

At its New York launch event earlier this year, Acer announced its new hybrid tablet and laptop with Windows 8. Here's our full Acer Aspire Switch 10 review. Read: The 25 best tablets of 2014.

Although the Acer Aspire Switch 10 is very affordable, it's another hybrid which is neither great at being a laptop nor a tablet. It's both bulky and fiddly. We like the IPS screen and the multi-mode ability thanks to the magnetic hinge (minus the top...
