In order to keep up with the growing Chromebook market many laptop makers are putting their own versions of the budget friendly and lightweight device out that run the familiar Windows 10 instead of Chrome OS. One of these latest models to come out is the Acer Switch One 10 SW1-011-177D which is a 10.1 inch design that features a detachable keyboard to quickly shift to a tablet setup when needed. Below we are going to review some of the benefits and downsides to this model and see if it might be a good option for you.
Processor: Intel Atom
Memory: 2 GB of RAM
Storage: 32 GB eMMC
Screen: 10.1 Inches
OS: Windows 10
– At just 1.3 KG this laptop is light when being on the move for extended period of times
– The 10.1 inch display includes 5 point touch giving you a great alternative to using a mouse and keyboard when it is convenient
– The convertible design gives you four modes of usage which include laptop, tablet, tent and stand so finding the perfect setup for whatever task is easy
– Battery life is impressive with up to 10 hours possible on a single charge which is enough for most users to get through a full day of use
– Like its direct Chromebook competition you won’t find much storage space on this model with just a small 32 GB eMMC drive included. For many an alternative like online storage will need to be used for all their important files
– Only includes a single USB 2.0 port
– Not surprisingly no optical drive has been included which for some might be a concern
The Acer Switch One 10 SW1-011-177D is a nice option for those who are interested in the Chromebook design but not willing to leave the familiar Windows operating system.
