Acer did not only show new products, but also updates its Windows based convertibles Switch 5 and Switch 3. The basic concept is identical: Tablet with attachable keyboard cover meets powerful Intel Core i processors.

"Never change a running system": Acer only announces small updates for the Switch 2-in-1 series. New features include a reworked design, a fingerprint scanner (Windows Hello), and longer battery runtimes. The Switch 5 is still equipped with a 12-inch IPS display and a resolution of 2160x1440 pixels (3:2). An Intel Core i processor ensures sufficient performance. The cooling solution, dubbed "LiquidLoop," has a specifically designed circular heat pipe to cool the CPU and does not require an additional fan. This means the Switch 5 is a silent device, even under heavy workloads. Acer also improved the battery runtime and advertises up to 10 hours.

The Switch 3 is much more affordable and is primarily designed for families as well as students. The system is powered by Intel Celeron or Pentium CPUs. The display is a 12.2-inch Full HD panel (1920x1080 pixels). It does not last as long as the Switch 5: Acer talks about up to 8 hours for the Switch 3.

The updated Switch 3 will be available in June starting at USD $399, while the Switch 5 starts at USD $799 in June.

I grew up with modern consumer electronics and my first computer was a Commodore C64, which encouraged my interest in building my own systems. I started working as a review editor for Notebookcheck during my dual studies at Siemens. Currently, I am mainly responsible for dealing with business laptops and mobile workstations. It’s a great experience to be able to review the latest devices and technologies and then compare them with each other.
