Acer's upcoming convertible slate has the same design as last year's Switch Alpha 12. It apparently uses a fanless cooling system as well but employs the Intel Pentium N4200 processor. Although this was not confirmed yet, we might see it unveiled tomorrow in New York City.

Last summer, Acer introduced the Switch Alpha 12 convertible. However, that 2-in-1 Windows tablet only cam with Intel Core processors and now the Aspire Switch 3 Pro is expected to offer a cheaper alternative for those who have nothing against the design of the Alpha 12.

According to an exclusive report by Tabletmonkeys, a reliable insider familiar with the matter revealed that the upcoming Aspire Switch 3 Pro would move away from Kaby Lake, using a processor from the Apollo Lake family. Although powered by the Intel Pentium N4200 and with a lower price tag than its predecessor, it seems that this new slate is expected to keep the fanless LiquidLoop cooling system of the Alpha 12.

Compared to the Switch Alpha 12, the Aspire Switch 3 Pro comes with all ports moved from the right side to left. In addition to the processor mentioned earlier, it is supposed to feature 64 GB internal storage and to run Windows 10 Pro. While there is no info on the details like memory or battery, it might be unveiled tomorrow in New York City, so stay tuned for all the official details.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
