Folks at notebookitalia were able to get their hands on the Acer Switch 10V laptop which is actually a 2 in 1 computer with quad cores, 10.1 inch display and windows 10. They have uploaded a video review of Acer 10V highlighting its features.
Acer Switch 10V specs include 10.1 inch display with IPS tech coated with corning gorilla glass, quad core Intel Atom cherry trail processor backed by 32GB or 64GB of flash storage and windows 10 operating system. As noted earlier, the Acer 10V has a keyboard dock with precision touchpad and keyboard which is required to turn it into a conventional laptop. The two units are held together by Acer Snap Hinge 2.
Like any other Acer Switch branded tablet or laptop, it supports stylus that will be sold separately. Shown above is Acer 10V in white color but it has been announced that more SKUs for Europe will be announced in fourth quarter of 2016.
