New 12-inch Windows Model in the Acer Aspire Switch Series Incoming
Acer will soon unveil the 12-inch model of the Acer Aspire Switch series, after Intel has recently unveiled the 5-th generation Core “Broadwell” CPU back in September, this year. Let’s have a look at some more details.
The upcoming Windows 8.1-based Acer Aspire Switch 12 is said to be one of the first convertibles to get released with an Intel Core M CPU. Thanks to some leaks coming from European retailers, we now have some more details related to the upcoming release and specs of the hybrid.
The Acer Aspire Switch 12 is said to feature a 12.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 with an Intel Core M-FY10a processor along with an Intel HD Graphics 5300 GPU. There’s a nice 4 GB of RAM and 60 or 120 GB of SSD storage which is expandable via micro SD.
The Acer Aspire Switch 12 can be used as a tablet or a notebook and there’s a detachable keyboard dock along with a non-detachable kickstand that acts as a hinge. The hybrid tablet runs on Windows 8.1 and is equipped with a 2 MP camera, stereo speakers, a micro USB and HDMI port, as well as Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11n connectivity.
However, at the moment, the smaller, Haswell-powered Switch 11 costs $650 on Amazon, which means the Switch 12 will be priced at a slightly bigger value.
