The Acer 12" Aspire Switch Alpha 12 Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Notebook has a split personality by coming with a detachable keyboard that lets you utilize it as a notebook or tablet. Powering the hybrid system is a dual-core 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5-6200U processor that can handle multiple applications simultaneously and achieve speeds of up to 2.8 GHz when running demanding applications. For memory, it sports 8GB of DDR3 memory as well as a 128GB SSD, which holds the preinstalled Windows 10 Home operating system. Additionally, you can expand its storage capacity using an optional microSDXC memory card inserted into the card slot.
The Switch Alpha 12 comes built with Acer LiquidLoop, which is a fan-less heat pipe cooling system that cools the processor.
USB 3.1 Type-C Port
You can extend the Alpha 12's capabilities with external devices via a USB 3.1 Type-C port. This port transfers data quickly and streams high-res videos to displays without a hitch. You can also recharge external devices, like smartphones, via this port.
Audio and Visuals
The 12" 2160 x 1440 display two front-facing speakers provide an immersive video-watching experience.
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
