The Acer Aspire Switch 10 V was the undisputed #1 most-popular product in our database over the last 12 months but its time might come to an end if the Switch 10 V model, with Intel Atom X5, takes over at a good price. The Switch 10 V comes with a Full HD 1920 x 1200 screen, a re-designed chassis and is built around the Intel Atom X5 processor. Mobilegeeks got a look at it in Taiwan today.
The Intel Atom X5 processor (Z8300, 1.44 Gha – 1.84 Ghz ) will give the Switch 10 a slight boost over the previous model in the GPU department and you’ll get a full 64-bit Windows system, likely to be Windows 10 but not confirmed. A full USB 3.0 port is included in the dock. There’s no USB-C port on the unit but it comes with a dedicated charging port, Micro USB, Micro HDMI and Micro SD card slot.
Mobilegeeks aren’t too happy with the keyboard layout but seem to like the touchpad click and feel.
There’s a possibility that Acer have planned a 4GB version and higher storage capacities but those details aren’t available right now. We’ll try and pull together all the official information for you over the next few days and add it to the databases which is slowly populating with Cherry Trail options.
