Here’s a round-up of the ultra mobile PCs that we added to the database in April 2015. Click the links to access the detailed specifications, gallery, information links and alternatives.
The 2015 Acer Aspire Switch 10 E was launched in April. It’s a colorful, light and low-priced 2-in-1 with a freshly designed Snap Hinge 2. We’re waiting for the full specifications to be confirmed but we’ve added all the details we can find to the database.
Acer’s Switch 11 V could be a hit if the price is right. A Core M processor and full HD display along with a stylish 2 in 1 design at a good price is exactly what the market needs now that the Surface 3 is available. Acer could deliver. We’re waiting for the full specifications to be confirmed but check the datasheet for what we have so far.
The Acer Switch 10 (SW5-015) was refreshed for 2015 but not by much. There’s a new Gorilla Glass rear on the screen, an improved hinge mechanism. Acer haven’t yet revealed the processor so we’re expecting an update to Atom X5 or X7 there.
Dell Venue 10 Pro. This 10.1 inch pro-focused Windows 8.1 tablet from Dell is using an Atom processor. There’s a nice docking keyboard, full HD screen option (with very high brightness) and a full USB 2.0 port. Performance isn’t up to the sam standard as the Surface 3 but it’s a well-built 2-in-1 that could suit business and educational scenarios well.
The Acer Aspire V 11 Touch features the smart new FlowCurve design – somewhat different from traditional notebooks, in profile at least. No fans so its whisper-quiet and runs cool. Claimed 7 hours of battery life.
The Haier Chromebook 11 has a claimed boot time of up 8 seconds and battery life of 10 hours. It’s light at just over 1kg. Unusually for a laptop a quad-core Rockchip processor (Cortex A17) is employed. The Haier is aimed at a very low-cost market with its $149 price tag.
