The Red Dot award-winning Aspire Switch 11 V 2-in-1 notebooks feature the powerful yet low energy consuming Intel® Core™ M processors under its stylish aluminum cover, allowing up to 8 hours of battery life for professionals on the go. The latch-less “Acer Snap Hinge 2” with magnet design and guiding plane provides an effortless transition experience between the notebook, pad, tent, and display modes, while elevating the keyboard for comfortable typing and lowering the center of gravity to increase stability.

Acer VisionCare™ provides extra care for the users’ eyes, while built-in dual front-facing speakers enhanced by Acer TrueHarmony and Dolby® Digital Plus Home Theater™ technology make it ideal for both work and play.
