Most hybrid 2-in-1 laptops have provided an alternative to conventional clamshell laptops for several years now, since Microsoft decided to get in the game along with the Surface.
They are more versatile compared to standard laptops and much flexible than iOS and Android tablets in terms of getting work done. Which is why a lot of manufacturers are getting in on the action as well. The Acer Switch 3 comes in a small box, which gives you a good indication of how compact it’s going to be.
Acer’s engineers have done a remarkable job creating a solid, weighty and well-put together device. The unit feels as if it is made of high-quality materials and components, and will safely endure a knock or two.
Even the keyboard cover provided, clad in a durable matte fabric that won’t stay for long, has a stiffness to it, which you wouldn’t anticipate at this price point. It connects through the standard magnetic strip you will notice on other hybrids available on the market, along with the extra hinged magnet, which connects to the bottom edge of the screen and angle the keys while you are typing.
With its extremely colorful choice of the screen of 1920 x 1200 IPS panel, the Acer Switch 3 has a decent viewing angle, at 12.2-inch impressive pixel density. Furthermore, you aren’t going to be gaming on this one, instead for everything else, the gadget never feels as if it is lacking power. General windows operation is normally snappy, web browsing is quick and screen drawing is lag-free as it could be expected.
In summary, the Acer Switch 3 is a brilliantly developed tablet, which is a joy to use. The extra flexibility of an active, stylish device, its sturdy build quality as well as decent performance means this gadget far better than its price would recommend.
