Thread Details

Another Surface "killer" computer. Acer Aspire Switch. Nice to see it has a full core i5 and not the Core m like others.

12", QHD IPS (2160x1440) tablet. 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, 6th gen Core i5-6200, Intel 520 graphics, keyboard included.

$699.99, for in-store pickup only. Regular price is $799.99, Amazon is at $751 (at the time of this post).

Sears, Jet, and Newegg have the Core i3, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD version for the same price. So i rate this as a decent deal. although Amazon has this lower model for $551.

Clearly a nice PC at a competitive price.

However, I've found that many Windows applications fail to scale properly in 4k, which can be particularly vexing on tablet/laptop screens and even more so where touch is the primary means of navigation. For browsing or mainstream office apps this is less of a problem.

Good luck!

Paid $499 for my i5 model at Microcenter and I'm extremely impressed by the total package, regardless of the price. There's virtually no difference between my Acer and my boss's Surface Pro - even though he paid more more than twice what I did for what we both agree is essentially the same device. :-)
