Acer has expanded its Switch 2-in-1 notebook line with the Acer Switch 5.

Featuring Windows 10, the Acer Switch 5 is versatile with a highly-mobile design that’s perfect for work, school and fun. Acer Switch 5 can be used with an Acer Active Pen on its touchscreen to take notes, sketch and annotate documents or photos with Windows Ink.

Building on the industry-leading innovations of its predecessor the Switch Alpha 12, the Acer Switch 5 provides a fanless, quiet experience through Acer LiquidLoop™ cooling, and excellent performance with up to 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processors.

The patented auto-retracting kickstand allows for easy one-handed adjustments to the viewing angle. The Acer Switch 5 supports Windows Hello with a fingerprint reader for fast and secure access.

The first 2-in-1 to be offered with 7th Generation Intel® Core® i7 and i5 processors, the Acer Switch 5 delivers top performance to make it even easier to complete tasks, make presentations and watch entertainment on the go. The Switch 5 has front and rear cameras for videoconferencing and capturing memories. The front webcam provides 720p Full HD video recording.

“New, innovative, 2-in-1 PC designs continue to drive category growth,” said Chris Walker, Vice President, Client Computing Group at Intel Corporation. “The 2-in-1’s draw is its versatility, but we know people who own one also want a full PC experience. With options of 7th Generation Intel Core, Intel Pentium or Intel Celeron processors inside, the Acer Switch 5 and Acer Switch 3 devices offer a complete package of versatility, long battery life and true PC performance across a range of price points.”

The battery life for the Acer Switch 5 is 10.5 hours. The Switch 5 supports a 256GB or 512GB PCIe SSD and up to 8GB of LPDDR3 SDRAM. It is thin and light, measuring just 292 (W) x 201.8 (D) x 12 (H) mm (11.5 x 7.94 x 0.47 inches) and weighing 1.27 kg (2.8 pounds) when the tablet and keyboard are connected.
