New 2-in-1 Aspire Switch 10 is a notebook and tablet with 4 different modes

It’s a two-in-one device, but it’s also got four modes. Keeping track? You don’t have to. With Acer’s new Aspire Switch 10, here’s what’s important: you can use it pretty much any way you want: as a notebook, pad or tablet, for viewing and sharing displays, or in “tent” mode, propped up on an airplane tray table, for example.

The Aspire Switch 10 with a 10.1-inch display was announced Tuesday. The company says Acer Snap Hinge lets users switch easily between the four modes. The hinge features a magnetic detachable design for latch-free docking that looks neater and transitions more smoothly than other dock hinges on the market.

The Acer Aspire Switch 10, with prices starting at $379.99, begins shipping in May. It has up to 64GB of storage and 2GB of RAM, powered by Intel’s Atom (Bay Trail T) quad-core processor for fast performance and multitasking.
