TAIPEI, TAIWAN - Acer today announced two 10-inch 2-in-1 notebooks designed for students and budget-conscious families, the Acer Switch V 10 and Switch One 10. Combining a full-featured notebook together with a removable tablet, they provide the best of both worlds to those who desire productivity and entertainment in one smart device. The Switch V 10 and Switch One 10 extend Acer’s industry-leading lineup of innovative 2-in-1 notebooks, which are available in a wide range of configurations to meet the demands of different consumers.
A Perfect Mix of Power and Versatility
Both the Acer Switch V 10 and Switch One 10 feature Windows 10 and the latest quad-core Intel® Atom™ processors for best-in-class performance and productivity. They include multi-touch 10-inch screens with IPS technology for wide-viewing angles and vivid colors, while Precision Touchpads enable accurate, smooth and responsive navigation experiences, and support Windows 10 Precision Touchpad gestures. With the Acer Snap Hinge™ latch-less magnetic hinge design, both devices utilize Continuum to easily transform into four versatile usage modes to best suit the need at the moment:
1. Notebook: Traditional laptop/clamshell mode for efficient keyboard and touchpad productivity. Ideal for doing research, composing documents and performing spreadsheet calculations.
2. Pad: Remove the display and use it as a standalone touchscreen tablet. Excellent for entertainment so sit back to watch your favorite TV series or play games after a long day at school or work.
3. Tent: Place the tablet and keyboard in a tent (or “A” formation) to use the touchscreen in tight spaces like on long train journey, cross-country airplane trip, or simply at home to view a recipe on a crowded kitchen counter.
4. Display: This mode connects the tablet facing away from the keyboard to offer a sleek way to present videos at small events or other types of gatherings.

Available with metal covers in five eye-catching colors (Pearl White, Shale Black, Coral Red, Peacock Blue and Navy Blue), the Switch V 10 is an ideal choice for students and young professionals thanks to the fast data transfer, high-resolution video output and convenient charging of the USB Type-C port. The touch display panel on Switch V 10 is covered by Antimicrobial Corning® Gorilla® Glass, which contains an antimicrobial agent to help protect the surface from odor and stain causing microorganisms and reduce their growth on touch surfaces.
