Acer introduces new Switch models

acer-switch-5Acer goes ahead with their brand new Switch 2-in-1 range by offering powerful models — without sacrificing on the relative quietness of its operation. The Switch 5 and Switch 3 models will both run on Windows 10 to make sure that you do not miss out on the latest version of Microsoft’s operating system, while offering versatile, highly-mobile designs that will be equally effective at work, in school and for fun.

 It does not matter whether you pick up the Switch 5 or Switch 3, both of them will play nice with an Acer Active Pen on the touchscreen in order to sketch, jot down notes or annotate documents or photos with Windows Ink. With the Acer Switch 5, it will continue in the path of its predecessor, the Switch Alpha 12, by arriving with a fanless, quiet form factor thanks to the Acer LiquidLoop cooling system. It will be powered by up to 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processors, has a vibrant 12-inch wide-view FHD+ touch display with IPS technology, the Intel HD Graphics 620 chipset, Acer TrueHarmony and Smart Amplifier for your audio needs, while boasting of Acer’s patented auto-retracting kickstand that paves the way for easy one-handed adjustments to the viewing angle. Not only that, Windows Hello is also supported where a fingerprint reader ensures fast and secure access.

As for the Acer Switch 3, this 2-in-1 device will be well-balanced, offering a generous 12.2-inch display, running on Intel processors carrying the very same quiet and fanless design as well. Its 12.2-inch display has been specially designed to deliver incredible precision and a responsive 10-point touch experience, while carrying a wide 178-degree viewing angle at Full HD resolution. Your ears will be treated to front-facing speakers that complement the stunning visuals, while its sleek metallic top cover has a distinctive yet subtle design with complementary etched edging. Expect the Acer Switch 5 to retail for $799 apiece, while the Acer Switch 3 will be half its price at $399 apiece.
