Acer Switch 10E Review / Initial Impressions

Sharing is caring!

The Acer Aspire Switch 10E is the follow up to the excellent Switch 10 I reviewed back in December for the first #acerliveblog event.

While the convertible laptop market is becoming more and more saturated, the Switch 10E is one of the only low cost devices out there costing around £230 from John Lewis making it only slightly more expensive than the traditional form low cost laptops from Acer such as the Acer Aspire V11.

The Switch 10E is powered by a Intel Atom Z3735F Quad-core 1.33 GHz, with 2 GB Ram and 32 GB Flash Memory. The 10.1″ inch WXGA screen runs at 1280 x 800. Oddly these specifications are exactly the same as the predecessor

In fact the only real change from last year is the slight design changes, introduction of multiple colours and a new hinge mechanism called the Snap Hinge 2.

Apart from that the RRP retail price is quite a bit lower than the original at £230 vs £300, but you can currently get the original from Amazon for £250. So, while the specification hasn't really changed the reduced price and improved hinge mechanism make it an even more appealing option.
