New Acer Aspire Switch 12 Notebook Offers Five Usage Modes
Acer announces the Acer Aspire Switch 12 with 5 modes of usage in one notebook and a vibrant 12.5-inch display. It also combines powerful computing with the newest Intel Core M processor and a Full HD display to provide users a versatile device that helps boosts productivity.
Equipped with a unique kickstand design that features a magnetic and latch-less detachable keyboard, the centerpiece of the Aspire Switch 12 is its ability to easily transition between 5 distinct modes (notebook, pad, display, tent and desktop). Through these 5 modes, users can find a configuration for just about any need and use it as a laptop, tablet with or without keyboard, or desktop PC. It can also be optimized for sharing information and viewing multimedia (display and tent modes) in conjunction with its dual front-facing speakers for a rich and full audio experience on the go.

Users can also enjoy its 10-point touch controls on a larger screen and use an optional Acer Active Pen1 for a more intuitive writing and drawing experience.
With a 12.5-inch Full HD (1920x1080) display with IPS technology and Zero Air Gap direct bonding technology, users can see everything clearly from wide viewing angle, with vivid colors and detail and even in bright sunlight. For added durability, the Aspire Switch 12’s display is built with next generation of Corning Gorilla Glass and treated with an anti-fingerprint coating that reduces unsightly smudges.
