Reviews for the Acer Switch 3 SW312-31-P3FT

80% Acer Switch 3 Review: Two in one, under half a ton
Source: Toptenreviews English
Acer Switch 3 Review – Choosing a portable computer is getting complicated. A few years ago, you could have a laptop or a tablet. A tablet wouldn’t run Windows, but gave you a small and light device to carry around for email, web browsing, music and so on. A laptop was bigger and heavier, but did the same kinds of things as a desktop PC. Then Microsoft invented the Surface, and it was neither one thing nor the other. Or, as Microsoft would prefer you to believe, it was both.

Acer Switch 3 (SW312-31) review – modestly priced 2-in-1 with a beautiful screen
Source: Laptop Media English
The Acer Switch 3 (SW312-31) is a tablet that really serves its purpose and nothing more. It seems that the mediocre hardware is justified by the low price and the low-power concept of the device. The Switch 3 sees some direct competition in the face of ASUS Transformer Book T101. Also for almost double the price, you can go for the Dell XPS 12 9250.

Intel HD Graphics 505: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Apollo Lake series. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
N4200: Low power quad-core SoC from the Apollo Lake series for inexpensive notebook. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.5 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter. Compared to the previous Atom generation, the per-MHz performance of the CPU architecture was vastly improved and the graphics adapter was improved as well.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


75%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
