The Acer Aspire Switch is a Windows tablet which turns into a notebook when you attach a keyboard dock. It gets the “Switch” name not only because you can switch the system from a notebook to a tablet and back again… but because you can also switch the screen around by flipping it 360 degrees and attaching it so it faces away from the keyboard for use in desktop or presentation mode.
The Acer Aspire Switch S5 features include:
- 10 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel IPS display
- Intel Atom Z3745 Bay Trail quad-core processor with Intel HD graphics

- 64GB of storage
- 802.11n WiFi
- Bluetooth 4.0
- micro HDMI port with HDMI 1.3 support
- micro USB 2.0
- microSD card slot
- Front-facing HD camera
The tablet comes with a keyboard dock, has stereo speakers, and the tablet weighs about 1.3 pounds without the keyboard.
