Acer Switch 5 overview

  • 1Description

The Acer 12" Switch 5 Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Notebook comes with a detachable keyboard that lets you use it as a typical notebook or tablet to deliver a multi-functional Windows-based computing experience. The Switch 5 is powered by an Intel Core i5-7200U processor, 8GB of LPDDR3 memory, and 256GB SSD for creating and editing digital content, typing reports, and more. The Intel Core i5-7200U processor is armed with two cores that have a base speed of 2.5 GHz and can achieve speeds of up to 3.1 GHz while running demanding apps. If the 256GB SSD does not offere enough storage space, a microSDXC card slot is available for increasing the system's storage capacity.

Acer has equipped the Switch 5 with a 12" IPS display that offers wide-viewing angles along with a resolution of 2160 x 1440, which is driven by integrated Intel HD Graphics 620 chipset. In addition to issuing commands using the backlit keyboard and mouse, you can perform tap, swipe, and other multi-fingered gestures on its 12" touchscreen. For sketching or writing notes, a stylus is included.

Aside from the display, the Switch 5 is armed with one USB 3.0 Type-A port along with one convenient USB 3.0 Type-C port, so you can connect a USB-C cable on the first try. For wireless connections, it sports 802.11ac Wi-Fi for accessing the Internet as well as Bluetooth 4.0, which pairs to mice, headsets, and other useful devices. Once connected online, you can conduct face-to-face conversations using its 720p webcam, speakers, and microphone as well as share your surroundings via a 1080p rear camera. There's also a fingerprint reader that lets you enter the Windows 10 Home operating system and log into accounts without typing passwords.

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
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 Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
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.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
