The Switch, 11 inch version
The Acer Aspire Switch 11: a slightly larger and fuller version than Switch 10 is a 2-in-1 tablet with a 10 inch screen, with a detachable keyboard and which transforms into an ultra portable computer thanks to magnetic or mechanical coupling from its base. With this model, Acer wanted to make a qualitative leap and move from the entry level to the high end. The version with a Core i3 processor and a Full HD display seems to us to have better characteristics than its predecessors in all respects thanks to its more efficient data processing system and a better screen.
If the there are many things in common with Switch 10, this article will focus on it, the Aspire Switch 11 is not a simple augmented version of its little brother. More than size, what separates the two computers is the processor. On the Switch 11 version, a Core i3 takes the place of the Intel Atom.
However, to compare the Hardware platform, we will also look at the Surface Pro 3 Core i3, as well as Lenovo Miix 2 11 which can also be evaluated for comparison (same design as the Miix 2 10 but with an 11.6 inch display, Core i3, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB SSD).
All have the Core i3 processor and the keyboard dock in common, but the Lenovo has dimensions similar to those of the Switch 11, while the Surface has a 12-inch display. The Switch 11 that we tried has in addition a 500 GB hard drive integrated in its base, very useful for those who archive photos and videos, for example.
