No fans in the liquid-cooled Acer Switch Alpha 12 hybrid
A lot of companies make Windows 10 tablets with detachable keyboards.
I call them Surface-alikes, because the most famous one is the Surface Pro series from Microsoft.
That system can get very expensive, well more than $1000, once you add that detachable keyboard, which frankly you really need.
Some other companies make similar things that include the keyboard and cost less, but they're usually Lower end processors like the Intel Atom or the Core M series.
What I like about this new Acer switch alpha 12 is that you can get an Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 chip in there, and it starts at just 599, and that includes the keyboard dock right there in the box.
Obviously, that lower price is gonna be the Core i3 version It also is a fanless system, something you don't see very often, and that's because it's got a liquid cooling system in there to keep everything cool, rather than having even a tiny fan which, you know, can take away battery power, can add noise, can add weight.
So it'll be interesting to see how this guy stays cool, even running a full Core i processor.
Again, available in June, starting at $599.
That is the Acer Switch Alpha 12.
