Tablet weight of 1. Microsoft Office is not included on this tablet PC. First Acer SW5-271 Intel WLAN As we unboxed the Acer Aspire Switch 12 we couldn't help notice the weight of the tablet. It's like Acer looked at a Lenovo Flex design and decided to cut the keyboard off leaving a stub. It turns out that the stand is extremely stable but we'll talk more about that later. What's more important is what happened when we tried to fold the keyboard section back over the screen as you would normally do with a laptop. Although you can attache the keyboard at the rear you can't fold it forward. You're left with a permanently exposed screen. Acer have included a good Acer SW5-271 Intel WLAN case for protection but that adds to the weight.

The first few minutes were a little confusing but after understanding the layout of the unit which we're sure that most customers will actually be familiar with before they buy the Switch 12 we 'got it'! The packaging is good quality despite our unit being marked 'demo' so we expect this to be Acer SW5-271 Intel WLAN final packaging.

Acer Aspire Switch 12 out of the box Case The casing is made from a hard textured plastic and feels a little cheap. Compared to the Surface Pro 3 there's no competition and that applies to the weight too. The Acer Aspire Switch 12 feels solid but dense and although the stand provides ways to hold the unit it still doesn't feel like something that can be held for, say, 30 minutes of reading Flipboard. The edges seem a little too sharp as you hold the unit and because of the width there's a huge leverage felt Acer SW5-271 Intel WLAN the wrist in landscape mode.

There's no creaking or bad joints though so perhaps it will turn out Acer SW5-271 Intel WLAN be a rugged choice of materials from Acer. The case is sealed with no obvious way to get inside although when we ran a fingernail along the join it popped-apart slightly. There are screws on the folding base and it looks like the battery might be housed inside this.

As the processor is housed in the top-left as you face the tablet and the bottom half of the tablet is extremely thin it makes sense that the battery is in the base. The hinge, an extremely important part of Acer SW5-271 Intel WLAN design, feels strong and you can push the tablet all the way back from degrees back to about 30 degrees before the unit falls on its back and reveals the tent mode that's going to be be perfect for coffee-shop news reading or for some pen-based activities.


The pen, unfortunately, is an optional accessory. With the keyboard attached to the front you can drop the screen all the way back and it won't fall over which makes it extremely stable on the lap and due to the extreme screen angles, center-mounted Acer SW5-271 Intel WLAN and mouse pointer, better than most laptops. Finally there's a 'desktop' mode which is what you get when you separate the keyboard from the unit.

It feels like a mini all-in-one and again is better in some respect to a laptop that requires the screen to stay at a fixed distance to the eyes. There are Acer SW5-271 Intel WLAN some ergonomic advantages to the Switch 12 design.

Finally there's a mode that Acer haven't mentioned as the keyboard and mouse pointer can be used many meters away. For PowerPoint presentations this is a real bonus. We were Acer SW5-271 Intel WLAN to control the Switch 12 tablet from over 10 meters away and as there's Miracast and WiDi we assume due to the Intel wireless module support built-in you could potentially be 20 meters or more away from an extremely large screen at full HD or, potentially, a 4K screen over WiDi. There are two front-facing speakers integrated into the hinge and a keyboard power-off button, on the keyboard. The case materials might be a little basic but the design we'll talk more about the keyboard below is inspiring. Thinking forward to future generations of this design where the tablet could weigh a lot less or where the battery could be integrated inside allowing for the stand to be removed is even more exciting.

A discussion was had about cooking the bright screen, good speaker and small footprint make it good for a kitchen and we even tried hanging the Switch 12 using the stand.
