Acer's new all in One PCs are metal, sleek and fanless

Although resolution hasn't been specified there are a pair of 720p HD web cameras on the front and back for Skype and basic still and video capture, whilst artistic types will appreciate support for Acer's Active Pen with 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity, palm rejection and Windows Ink compatibility, well-timed to coincide with the latest Windows 10 Creators update. There's also a lower powered Switch 3, with Full HD screen and a choice of Intel Pentium or Celeron processors. It's available in 15.6- and 17.3-inch models, both of which are 1080p, and it offers the same processor and RAM options. It's Acer's first 2-in-1 to be offered the latest-gen Intel Core i7 and i5 processors and features Acer's patented auto-retracting kickstand which can be adjusted with one hand as well as a Full HD+ display and 8GB of memory.

As for performance, we're not expecting anything mind-blowing, with Acer resorting to Intel's more traditional Pentium and Celeron chipsets. For commercial customers, the Acer Switch 5 can be purchased with the Acer USB Type-C Dock that transforms the device into a powerful workstation. It also features a pretty expansive trackpad that shares in the display's 10-point multitouch compatibility to accommodate gesture support when navigating around the Windows 10 OS. The Switch 3 tablet alone measures just 9.95mm in height, and weighs 0.9kg.

Acer's other confusingly named PC is the Aspire Z24 is a similarly specced PC, albeit with a 24-inch screen, an added optical drive and support for NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics. This is made possible by the new LiquidLoop cooling tech which is also the key to the Switch 5's ability to last for 10.5 hours on a single charge.

The Switch 3 will be available in several configurations supporting 32GB, 64GB or 128GB eMMC memory and up to 4GB of LPDDR3 SDRAM. It also supports Windows Hello with a fingerprint reader for fast and secure access. The Switch 3 measures just 295 (W) x 201 (D) x 16.3 (H) mm (11.61 x 7.91 x 0.64 inches) and weighs 0.9 kg (1.98 pounds) when the tablet and keyboard are connected. Measuring just 5.85 mm thin, the keyboard delivers 1.4 mm of travel for comfortable typing. Lastly, the notebook comes loaded with a backlit keyboard and Precision Touchpad which provides ample room for navigating, scrolling and zooming.

For the extra oomph, you can expect to pay upwards of €1099 (approximately £925) when the Switch 5 launches in June this year alongside the new Switch 3, which starts at €499 (approximately £925).

The team at Notebook Review will have full reviews of the new Acer Swift and Acer Switch series notebooks as they become available later this year.
