Switch in a snap with every life mode with Acer Switch 2-in-1 devices

Never doubt your decision if in case you decide to switch to a different digital device from the one you commonly use because you want your device to fit whatever work or life mode you prefer.

It’s not bad to switch at all, especially if you’re going to shift to an Acer 2-in-1 device that’s not just amazing aesthetically but also has powerful features that will definitely fit both every day and adventurous users.  You have four choices to choose from Acer’s array of 2-in-1 devices: the Acer Switch 10, Switch 10E, Switch 11 and Switch 12 and either which one you choose, is a great find.

Eye-catching body and frame, innovation, power, beauty or durability—these are what you get from any of the Acer Switch 2-in-1 devices that will make your investment—and your decision to switch—truly worth it.

The Acer Switch 10 and 10E, for example, are surely brilliant choices in making that all-important switch. These trendy and compact 2-in-1s allow versatile shape-shifting into four different devices: notebook, tablet, tent and display with nary a snag via the Acer Snap Hinge™, which also allows you to snap on or off a keyboard with a simple push or pull.

Protecting your data is also a breeze. The keyboard serves to lock or unlock sensitive data on your keyboard dock’s hard drive. To lock the hard drive and protect your data, just snap off the tablet from the keyboard, then simply snap it back on to unlock.

Power is no stranger to the Acer Switch 10 and Switch 10E, which come with Intel Atom processors for better graphics and gaming performance, including power efficiency to prolong battery life to let you go serious whether at work or at play. The fact that these devices run on Windows 10 and features “Continuum” that automatically switches the interface from tablet to laptop mode.

Coming in eye-catching and trendsetting colors that suit perfectly the dynamic shape and elegant textile-pattern texturing, the Acer Switch 10 and 10E also features Acer VisionCare™. This technology lets you switch on Acer BluelightShield™ to reduce harmful blue light in case you need to look at the device for long periods, and also sets to Acer LumiFlex™ to auto-boost the contrast if you will use in under direct sunlight. No more squinting, no more added eye strain, no more eye problems in the future. Plus, with its HD screen’s IPS technology made tougher with super-tough Gorilla™ Glass to make it scratch-free, you get to see images clearly regardless of the angle.

If in case the Acer Switch 10 and Switch 10E doesn’t fit your fancy, take your pick from the Acer Switch 11 or Acer Switch 12. The Acer Switch 11 features a super comfy Chiclet keyboard for easier typing, a super responsive precision touchpad for smooth navigation, latest Intel Core processor for power-saving features that equate to longer battery life, dual front-facing speakers, full HD and IPS display screen with Zero Air Gap technology and anti-fingerprint technology. The Acer Switch 12, on the other hand, has space-age cooling feature through the Acer Liquid Loop, a full-sized keyboard with an angle bar so you can raise the keyboard for error-free typing, a 165-degree adjustable kickstand with anti-slip rubber strap and an IPS display that can be connected to multiple 4K displays. So how’s that for performance?
