Acer's first hybrid laptop tablet
Acer has entered the hybrid market by developing The Aspire Switch 10. The Switch 10 features their innovative Acer Snap Hinge, which allows the user to choose between four use modes. The hinge is magnetic, which is a completely new concept that makes transition between modes exceptionally easy.
It is anticipated that most users will use it primarily as a standalone tablet, but there is the option to dock it into the keyboard and use it as a notepad. The screen can be folded back over the keyboard or the user can opt for tent mode, which allows the user to use the keyboard as a stand for their tablet.
