The 10.1-inch screen attaches via something Acer calls the Snap Hinge. It's essentially the same two-pronged connector found on many detachable hybrids, but instead of snapping together with a physical switch, fairly powerful magnets pull the two halves together and keep them attached, even when I held the system by the screen and shook it.

The system also folds down flat into a slate mode.

In its clamshell mode, the Switch 10 looks like any other ultraportable laptop.
