Aspire Switch 10 E detailed review

The Acer Aspire Switch 10E tries to lower the barrier of entry for anyone desiring the taste of a 2-in1 tablet-laptop hybrid significantly. At Rs.30,000, it offers a 10-inch netbook with a detachable screen with enhanced touch input. While the device’s screen and bottom panel are encased in a textured blue plastic case that feels nice to touch and hold, the device itself seems bulky and thick – negating the effect created by its brightly coloured shell. However, the Switch 10E isn’t heavy, weighing only 1.28 kg. It’s screen locking mechanism is nice as the two pieces just slide into the magnetic latches easily – piece of cake, really.


The device operates well in tablet mode, no complaints. Its keyboard sports tightly placed chiclet-styled keys that are good to type on and a smooth trackpad centered on an adequate palmrest. Watching video and listening to music on the Switch 10E was largely a good experience, as well as working on productivity apps (Google Drive, Microsoft Office 365). As long as you aren’t trying to do more than 2-3 tasks at a time, you’ll be largely satisfied with the Switch 10E’s multitasking capabilities. Its most stellar performance however is its battery life, scoring just a shade under the 6-hour mark in our high-performance benchmark. Expect over 8-9 hours of battery backup in the real-world. This hybrid doesn’t try to do much, offering a good 2-in-1 device at a nice price.

Cower, puny human, for I am Big Daddy! The ground rumbles beneath my feet, the very air you breathe resonates to my primal roar. Mere mortals, I am the scourge of the n00bs, destroyer of worlds. Fear my might, tremble in my presence.
