Acer Aspire Switch 12 S – Aluminium Design:

As we have previously mentioned, Acer Aspire Switch 12 S is made from a very durable aluminum material that provides users with comfort and security. You will be able to detach and reattach the screen very easily and the whole process is much simpler than ever before. It is super light and when it is in tablet form, it weighs 1.76 pounds which are impressive.

The keyboard is magnetic and when attached to the screen, the total weight is 3.09 pounds. The magnets are strong and will prevent the accidental detachment of the keyboard. It is a perfect balance and you will not struggle with this transition. The curved hinge will give a bit of a lift to the bottom part which is very comfortable for typing. The keyboard part also has full-size USB ports.

Acer Aspire Switch 12 S – Performance

You will be able to choose between 4GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of SSD hard disk. The Acer Aspire Switch 12 S has a 6th generation Intel core processor which makes this computer a strong contender in the convertible laptops market. The display resolution is 1080p or 4K with incredible colors. It is a great two-in-one device that is user-friendly and performs without a flaw in all situations.


Since Acer Aspire Switch 12 S runs on Windows 10, it is very easy to make a switch between tablet and laptop modes. Also, just like all other convertible laptops out there, it has a tent mode that is great for work and giving presentations to your colleagues. The price is affordable, especially for this type of device and you will be able to get for only $999. It is definitely the best two-in-one device created by Acer so far and it is clear that they put a lot of effort into designing and putting together this laptop because it is simply magnificent.


Users mostly complain about the fact that the aluminum material of the outer shell is a fingerprint magnet and that the device looks a bit messy after extensive usage. Of course, if this bugs you a lot and you want to keep your Acer Aspire Switch 12 S clean at all times, it can be prevented by carrying a small cleaning cloth with you at all times. This is an aesthetic issue and if you are not bothered by it, you should simply ignore it.
