Acer just announced the Aspire Switch 10, a new device the company describes as a four-position 2-in-1 laptop. The Switch 10 can convert or switch (thus the name) between laptop mode and tablet mode with the help of its snap hinge, which features magnets that help guide the 10.1-inch, zero-gap IPS display back into the keyboard dock. Easily the standout of Acers back to school lineup, the Switch 10 features a solid construction with an aluminum chassis and and dual front-facing speakers on the display portion. It runs Windows 8.1 (powered by an Intel Bay Trail processor) and includes Acers new Bring Your Own Cloud technology which helps users access files stored locally at home or at the office from other devices. Its set to arrive in North America in June for around $380. Aside from your regular laptop and tablet configurations, the Switch 10 can be positioned in a display mode ideal for watching Netflix, and theres also a Tent mode that serves as another way to prop the laptop up.
