In addition to the curved G-Sync display announced yesterday, Acer brought a truckload of mobile devices along. Most notable among them is the Switch 10, a quad-core Atom convertible with a 10" 1920x1200 display and Windows 8.1.
That IPS display is covered with a sheet of Corning Gorilla Glass that appears to be bonded directly to the panel. The screen also has a digitizer built in for Acer's optional Active Pen. 2GB of RAM and either 32GB or 64GB of eMMC storage are on offer, as well as a 22Wh battery rated for seven hours of on-the-go computing.
Without the keyboard attached, the Switch 10 is just a third of an inch thick (8.9 mm) and 1.3 lbs. With the dock, those numbers grow to 0.9" (24 mm) and 2.6 lbs.
Acer doesn't specify exactly which Atom processor powers the Switch 10, but if it's similar to the Cherry Trail chip in the Surface 3, this convertible could be pretty compelling for basic computing, especially since its $399 starting price includes the keyboard dock. The Surface 3's Type Cover is a $130 add-on over the $499 base price. Acer says the Switch 10 will begin shipping in August.
