Acer switches up to a larger, better budget 2-in-1

 

BERLIN -- Acer has added an 11.6-inch model to its 2-in-1 notebook lineup, a larger option for those who feel a 10.1-inch screen just isn't enough.

Alongside the announcement of the Switch 11, Acer also announced that the existing Switch 10 model will be receiving a full-HD 1080p screen upgrade.

Unreliable wifi

 

Overall nice sharp display and seems fast and responsive. The keyboard is very cheap and plasticy though which lets it down and isn't heavy enough to stop it tipping over when in laptop mode. The main problem I had though was the wifi. It would connect...
