Acer announces Switch 3, Switch 5 convertibles with fanless cooling system


At its [email protected] global press conference in New York, Acer expanded its popular Switch 2-in-1 tablet line up with two new models – Switch 3 and Switch 5 – running Windows 10 and sporting versatile, highly-mobile 2-in-1 design, coupled with unique features for work, school and fun.

The Switch 3 and Switch 5 supports digital pen inputs via Acer's Active Pen (featuring palm rejection and 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity) on the touch screen to sketch, take notes or annotate documents or photos with Microsoft's Windows Ink feature. They come with a detachable keyboard  that snaps on with ultra-secure magnets and can be adjusted to an ergonomic angle. And thanks to the 2-in-1 design, both can be transitioned between notebook and tablet modes seamlessly.
