The Acer Aspire Switch 10 SW5-015 is a convertible hybrid released by Acer in early 2016. It garnered significant praise for its decent build quality and excellent design, especially regarding its multimode user functionality. Many customers expressed appreciation on the device’s portability, particularly due to a compact 10.1-inch screen. On the other hand, many reviewers saw the 64GB SSD storage space as rather modest. Critics also had a go at the performance, particularly the 2GB RAM, which is lower than the agreeable 4GB average for budget laptops. All in all, the Acer Aspire Switch 10 SW5-015 is a decent hybrid that will get day to day work done while both in and out of the workplace.

    The Acer Aspire Switch 10 is a budget hybrid that skips the more-common fold-back or button-clasp hinges and instead attaches its screen via a magnetic connection. It shares the same hardware limitations as other small hybrids, but can be easier to use.

    It's a laptop! It's a tablet! It's…the Acer Aspire Switch 10 E. Yes, the most portable of the laptops we looked at in the $500 tier is also the weirdest, being that it's one of those "tablet hooked to a keyboard" hybrid deals. Or sometimes it's a "tablet not hooked to a keyboard," depending on what you're doing with it.
