The Acer Aspire Switch 10 is a 2-in-1 Windows tablet with an Intel Bay Trail processor and a keyboard dock that lets you use the system like a notebook. It earns the Switch name not only by letting you not only switch between notebook and tablet modes, but also because you can flip the screen around so it faces the keyboard of faces away from it.
I reviewed the Switch 10 recently and found it to be a pretty nice affordable portable Windows computer. But it certainly has some limitations.
Now it looks like Acer is planning to address some of those limits by offering new models with more storage, a higher-resolution display, or a lower price.
The original Switch 10 features an Intel Atom Z3745 quad-core processor, a 10 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, 2GB of RAM, at least 32GB of storage, and a 5910mAh battery.
Here are some of the other models that have begun showing up at online stores:
- Switch 10 with Atom Z3735F and 1280 x 800 pixel screen and 5700mAH battery
- Switch 10 HDD with 500GB hard drive in the detachable tablet dock
- Switch 10 with full HD display
While Acer doesn’t have an individual product page for the model with a full HD display yet, the main Switch 10 page mentions the 1920 x 1200 pixel screen and several European retailers have product pages for this model.
Meanwhile, Acer hasn’t announced pricing for the Switch 10 with an Atom Z3735F CPU yet, but that processor is a cheaper, less powerful Intel Bay Trail processor which suggests this model is a lower-cost alternative.
