Acer has launched its most affordable 2-in-1 Windows tablet to date.

The Acer One 10 is a tablet with a 10.1 inch display, an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor, and a $200 price tag.

It’s available for purchase from Acer or Best Buy.

This isn’t Acer’s first 10 inch, 2-in-1 model. The company also offers several models under the Aspire Switch brand. But the Acer One 10 is the cheapest model yet… and the One name seems to imply value: the upcoming Acer Aspire One Cloudbook is expected to be an 11.6 inch laptop with a $169 price tag.

The Aspire One 10 has entry-level specs, including just 2GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage, 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, 2MP front and rear cameras, and Windows 8.1 with Bing software.

But it has a 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display with wide viewing angles, and a microSDXC card reader for removable storage.

When used with the keyboard dock, the Aspire One 10 measures about an inch thick and weighs about 2.6 pounds.

  1. For $199 I can’t complain too much, just upgraded to Windows 10 without a problem. Front speakers and a bigger battery would have been nice.

  2. I just picked this bad boy up today. I went to best buy and it was between this and about 4 others under $350. This one had the same processor, and same amount of ram as the $350 one. So I picked it up. It was a little less cosmetically appealing but I’m more of a specs guy myself.

  3. Take these specs, design and price and put the latest Android 5.0 on it.

    I don’t understand why Android tablets from the same manufacturer always get gimped specs (Bay Trail, 1GB, 16GB on Android vs Bay Trail, 2GB, 32GB on Windows) and sell at a higher price.

    At this point though it’ll probably be better to wait for a gimped version of Cherry Trail on Android that’s very likely going to be priced higher than the Windows Cherry Trail tablet variants.

  4. I’m definitely more interested in this versus the T100. But I have some concerns:
    – 32 or 64 bit Windows?
    – Max MicroSD size?

    Some positive marks for this device are:
    – 8400mah battery (T100 has 8000mah)
    – Screen is reversable (as per the pictures)

    1. It’s a low budget Bay Trail, so it should still be 32bit as they only push the 64bit support for the higher end Z3795…

      As for the reversible screen docking, it’s a feature they demonstrated before, I’m not impressed because the added weight and bulk isn’t good for tablet usage and would rather just undock it anyway but opinions vary…

      But the Asus T100HA, which will be the Cherry Trail update to the T100, should be out by September and it’ll be the mid range x5-Z8500 and is suppose to get USB-C, covers the USB 3.1 support, and a full size USB 2.0 port, claims up to 14 hour battery life… They already have the product page up if you want to check it out for future comparisons…

  5. At this point I’d hold off buying any of these low end Windows devices until Windows 10 comes pre-installed. I’ve seen conflicting reports on how easy it is to upgrade them.

    1. The newer Cherry Trail hardware would also be appreciated ;-p

      I’m sure people are getting tired of seeing Bay Trail after 2 years, though, so far Braswell has been a little disappointing on the performance side… Since they limited the max clocks to lower than the equivalent previous Bay Trail M/D Celeron/Pentium SoCs but hopefully these are just early release issues due to the trouble they had with the 14nm FAB and another release later will let them offer higher clocks like Bay Trail itself received previously but at least this doesn’t effect Cherry Trail for tablet market…

      Though, budget models may get stuck with the x5-Z8300 and locked to no more than 2GB of RAM…

        1. For Cherry Trail? Certainly not, 14nm FAB and essentially the same architecture as Bay Trail means they can offer it for less than the 22nm Bay Trail SoCs…

          The rumor for the Cherry Trail update for the Asus Transformer Book T100, the T100HA, is for a starting price of $269. which is significantly lower than what the original T100 was released at… and that’s with the mid range x5-8500 that still lets them offer more RAM and the T100HA will come with both 2GB and 4GB RAM configuration…

          Most of the cost of the system comes from other parts besides the SoC anyway, the SoC itself accounts for very little of the total costs!

          Remember, Intel is competing with low cost ARM SoC in the mobile and tablet markets… It’s only the higher end offerings that you have to worry about the price jumping significantly and never reaching these types of budget device lows…

      1. I’m in the market for a detachable and have a few lined up. Was planning on adding this one to my list (3:2 or 16:10 aspect ratio a must have) but you make some good points. Just did some very light research on Cherry Trail (x5, x7) vs Bay Trail – graphics about twice as fast, battery/cpu maybe a bit better. With the right support: HoloLens, wireless charging, wireless image streaming via Wi-Di (future proofing)

        4GB RAM might have to be a requirement too. Really want to be able to run a couple of lighter weight Linux Distros in VirtualBox.

        1. Yup, you’ll need 4GB at least for running VMs properly… Bonus is those systems will also be 64bit, which also means 64bit UEFI and that will also make it easier to boot other OS besides just Windows as well as better support the VM, many that require 64bit…

          For Bay Trail’s the Z3795 is pretty much the only one that offers 2GB to 4GB of RAM and you can find it in some budget models like the 11.6″ Asus Transformer Book T200, with the bonus of the keyboard dock having a easy to access drive bay to add a HDD/SSD 2.5″ drive…

          While Windows 10 will finally let people install Windows apps on external drives and not just the C drive…

          Right now the Surface 3 is the only Cherry Trail actually being sold but it’s a premium business class product and a bit too pricey for many… Thus keep an eye out for the upcoming Asus T100HA and a few others should come out in time for the holiday shopping season…

          The Braswell’s have a similar graphical advantage as Cherry Trail but are limited to a max clock of 2.4GHz vs some of the older Bay Trail’s being able to go up to 2.7GHz (Pentium J2900 being the top end)… But if you need lots of RAM then either the Bay Trail M/D’s or the Braswells will support up to 8GB of RAM, just watch out as some vendors solder the RAM on the laptops as a cost saving feature… The Braswell just won’t offer as much CPU performance and the max memory bandwidth seems a little lower too… though, they can still out perform some of the lower end Bay Trail M/D’s… Think the J1900 comes out nearly even to its equivalent Braswell counterpart…

          Btw, so far the Surface 3 has the 3:2 ratio and one of the highest resolutions but the 1280×800 screens many of these budget models are starting to get are 16:10 ratio and is not so much smaller res as just trading off ratio from the 1366×768 ratio that’s closer to 16:9…

          1. Thanks, CyberGusa! This really helped spring me ahead on my research. I had 5 detachables on my list and just crossed off 4 of them. Still have the ASUS Transformer Book T100HA listed. Saddened that the Surface 3 is basically just a tablet – almost ordered a couple of times but I don’t want to compromise on the laptop aspect of the experience (ex-owner of a Samsung Tab Pro 12.2″). It needs to be a detachable vs a tablet or “flip”. It’s a great machine otherwise with a perfect screen!
