Hybrid and convertible computers are the new cool. Seriously, who doesn’t love a device, which is a full-fledged notebook that allows you do all the work, and can be turned into a tablet quickly when you want to read a long form article or watch a movie laying down in bed? Over the past few months, we have seen many companies release several such devices. Acer has a new device that it wants all of us to look at. Just yesterday it unveiled its new 5-in-1 Aspire Switch 12 tablet. The company has now posted an ad to list the new features of its convertible system.
Among the features the company showcased in the video includes, a detachable magnetic keyboard, full HD display, high quality speakers, and the new Intel Core M processor. The Aspire Switch 12’s display is also touch-capable, giving users the ability to draw on it with a stylus or any other input device. The screen is laminated with Enhanced Gorilla Glass 3 to protect it from any scratches, and prevent fingerprint. The Aspire Switch 12 offers 5 different modes: pad, notebook, desktop, display, and tent.
In terms of hardware specification, the Aspire Switch 12 sports a 12.5-inch 1080p display. Beneath the device sits an Intel Core M processor and storage is offered in two options: 30GB or 120GB SSD. It also comes with micro USB 3.0 and micro HDMI ports.
