Acer unveils today a new Aspire Switch convertible that offers five modes of usage and combines a new Broadwell processor from Intel with "a vibrant" Full HD display. Acer Aspire Switch 12 has a 12.5-inch touchscreen and its unique kickstand design with magnetic latch-less detachable keyboard allows it to switch easily between the following modes: notebook, display, tent, desktop, and pad.

Acer Aspire Switch 12 uses the new Intel Core-M processor and has a display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection, anti-fingerprint coating and a resolution of 1,920X1,080 pixels. This convertible features dual front-facing speakers and a detachable keyboard that can be used both wirelessly and connected. The keyboard also includes a pointing stick that provides "an enhanced navigation experience." An optional Acer Active Pen is also available for an improved writing and drawing experience.

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.
