With a starting price of just under 800 Euros, the Acer Switch Alpha 12 undercuts the current Microsoft Surface Pro 4 by 100 Euros. Furthermore, the Acer solution is sold with the keyboard already included unlike with Microsoft's tablet where the Type Cover is sold separately. The Switch Alpha 12 carries a Core i5-6200U CPU, 4 GB RAM, a 128 GB SSD, and a 12-inch IPS display at a resolution of 2140 x 1440 pixels.

Battery life for the fan-less system is rated for up to 8 hours. The Acer Active Pen stylus, however, is sold separately unlike on the Surface Pro 4. The MicroSD slot allows for additional storage space while the USB 3.1 Type-C port provides both power and more connectivity options with adapters. 802.11ac 2x2 MU-MIMO is responsible for wireless connectivity.

Although the base configuration can be pre-ordered for 800 Euros through Amazon, the higher-end configuration will retail for as much as 1300 Euros with more powerful specifications including a Core i7-6500U, 8 GB RAM, and 512 GB SSD. A mid-range SKU will also be available with the Core i5-6200U, 8 GB RAM, and a 256 GB SSD for 1100 Euros.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
