Acer has announced a new 2-in-1 laptop that adjusted into four different positions or modes. The Acer Aspire Switch 10, as its name suggests, can switch into either a laptop or tablet, as well as convert into display and tent modes.

The first two are pretty self-explanatory: with the keyboard attached, the Acer Aspire Switch 10 behaves like any laptop with a clamshell design. Undock the display and it’s become a tablet. Attach it back but with the display facing outwards and it’s now in display mode. Flip it upside down (so the whole thing looks like an inverted V when viewed from the side) and we now have the tent mode. The flexibility pretty much reminds me of the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro and, to a lesser degree, Yoga Tablet 10 HD+.

As a hybrid, the Acer Aspire Switch 10 comes equipped with a 10-inch IPS display (1366×768 resolution) with Acer LumiFlex solution for outdoor screen visibility, quad-core Intel Atom (Bay Trail T) CPU, 2GB RAM, and SSD storage of up to 64GB. Windows 8.1 handles the software side of things, bundled with a free Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013. Prices start at $379.99, with availability beginning in May.

  1. Iniiwasan ko na ang brand na acer dahil parang mahina ang quality ng product nila. Nagkaroon ako ng laptop na acer at wala pang 6 months ay problema na ang keyboard. Sayad ang letter j at ). Ang battery 8 months lang ay patay na. Mura nga sana ang presyo nila kaso di sulit ang pagkakabili. Mas pabor pa ako sa asus.
