I scored this 8/10 when I reviewed it at Notebookcheck recently. The Acer Switch 10E didn’t excite me when I unboxed it but it turned out to be a good little convertible tablet. It was $279 when I reviewed it but it’s on offer now for just $239. That’s a great deal.

Update 23 August : “Currently unavailable.”

The low-resolution touchscreen is a good IPS panel with surprisingly high brightness and reasonable color range and accuracy, the keyboard is solid and usable and the battery life is also OK. I just voted it my #1 travel PC!

Acer Switch 12. Order for $649 in US, see reviews from elsewhere

The Acer Aspire Switch 12 – a Core M-based 2-in-1 laptop – is coming, and it starts at just $649.  Promotional and hands-on videos are starting to appear in YouTube.

There’s one device I didn’t manage to get a good hands-on with at IDF and IFA last year and that’s the Acer Aspire Switch 12. I wish I had because I’m intrigued having read one of the first reviews, watched a number of videos and having just drafted a piece on hot-desking with the Surface Pro 3.  The Switch 12 weighs 1.4KG in total which is above our 1.3KG limit here but as the keyboard is removable there’s an operating weight of well under 1300 grams. Still, you’re unlikely to be carrying this without the keyboard so it sits on the borderline.

Acer Aspire Switch 12 is available.
