The Acer Aspire Switch 11v may not dazzle with special features like the Yoga Tab 3 Pro's projector, or come with a responsive and accurate stylus like Microsoft's Surface tablets. And sure, the Core M processor lacks the impressive power of its Core i brethren. But the Switch 11v is a well-designed Windows 10 tablet that quickly and easily converts into a laptop, while that keyboard is more likely to appease touch typists than the Surface's one-piece Type Cover. If you're not bothered about flashy features or desktop levels of performance, the Switch 11v is a solid choice.
