These four modes are mentioned in the official press release as "notebook, tablet, display, and tent." This versatility is achieved thanks to Acer's own Snap Hinge design.

  • Operating system: Windows 8.1
  • Weight: 1.29 pounds (without keyboard dock); 2.58 pounds (with keyboard)

The aluminum case of the Aspire Switch 10 is 0.32-inch thick, while the keyboard comes in at 0.44 inches. An optional keyboard dock for 500 GB of extra storage will be available, but there is no other information about it at this time.

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.
