60% Acer Switch 3 review: Cheap, capable, underwhelming
Source: It Pro English
The Switch 3 has been a difficult device to review. It offers great value for money for those looking for a capable 2-in-1 experience, but who've been put off by the exorbitant costs normally associated with the market. It's a solid, well-built machine, with a decent battery life and a good 1080p screen, and performs perfectly well as a business machine.

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.

Comment

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.
