Acer Aspire Switch 10 V – New design, Atom X5, hands-on from Computex

Posted on 02 June 2015, Last updated on 02 June 2015 by

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.

    “….Weird keyboard layout….” Lol

    As a tech journalist who covers international tech events, you’d expect the mobilegeeks reviewer to be aware of international keyboard layout variances.

    Does this have a stylis? I have found it difficult to keep up with specs of ACERs products but this sounds really interesting.

  3. AdamF says:

    Yes, would love to know whether this has a digitizer like the last FHD Switch 10. That, 4GB and a decent price could make this a great competitor for the Surface 3. I’d prefer it without the keyboard though I think.

  4. Vitali says:

    I would have Acer Switch 10 with 4 GB Ram because it with less memory isn’t actually at the moment.
