Acer is adding two new models to its line of low-cost, 2-in-1 tablets with 10 inch displays and detachable keyboards this summer.

The Acer Switch V 10 is the fancier of the two, with a USB Type-C port, a metal cover, and support for features like an optional 500GB hard drive in the keyboard dock. This model is expected to launch in the third quarter of 2016 for $249 and up.

Acer’s Switch One 10 is a cheaper option with a starting price of $199. It’s expected to launch in July.

Both tablets feature Intel Atom Cherry Trail processors and IPS displays.

The keyboards connect to the tablets via Acer’s magnetic “Snap Hinge” system which holds the computer together in laptop mode without any latches. There are also precision touchpads below the keyboards, with full support for Windows 10 touch gestures.

Acer says the Switch V 10 features a Gorilla Glass display, dual-band 802.11ac WiFi, and support for 32GB or 64GB of storage. Acers says the tablet should get up to 9 hours of battery life.

There’s also fingerprint reader on this model, with support for Windows Hello secure login features, and there are two keyboard options: a slim model or the aforementioned option with a 500GB hard drive. The hard drive keyboard also has two full-sized USB ports.

The Switch V 10 will be available in black, white, red, or two shades of blue (peacock or navy).
