Acer Aspire Switch 10 revealed

P1010063The star of Acer’s global press conference today was the launch of the Acer Apsire Switch 10, a Windows 8.1 tablet  with clip on keyboard. The most exciting aspect of this is the “Snap hinge,” this would really feels durable without being overly heavy. Others have tried this in the past however Acer looks to have nailed it with the combination of two exposed clips and some heavy magnets that hold everything snugly together.

In addition to this Acer are also bragging of the 10″ display featuring a “Zero Air Gap” meaning there is no gap between the display and the protective plastic over the top allowing for a better viewing angle and less glare from sunlight. Running on an Intel Atom Z3745 quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM performance seemed pretty snappy. You have the choice of 32 or 64GB of storage.

Like many multi-positional devices before it, the Switch 10 can switch into four typical forms, laptop, tablet, tent and stand.

The Snap hinge mechanism is interesting as it sits at a perfect right angle, as you tilt further back the keyboard rises and tilts toward to making a more natural typing position.

Undeneath the machine is not affected by the hinge as the mechanism is contained within the profile of the Switch 10.

The bottom of the tablet has two holes for the clips and some connections for the keyboard input. The magnets are not visible.

The clips are fairly simple and are angled to help guide the tablet into a lock position. The magnets tend to do all the work.

The rear of the device benefits front the positioning of the hinge. A nice unbroken line gives the Switch a more elegent look instead of the clumsy visible hinges on most other devices.
