Acer has, ahead of the Computex Taipei, announced that it will release two new notebooks aimed at the lower end of the market. The Switch V 10 and One 10 are both designed with students and the budget-conscious in mind, conveniently priced to compete with Chromebooks.

Unlike the Chrome OS software that runs on Chromebooks, the Switch notebooks will come with Windows 10 and Continuum, the feature that allows seamless switching from touch control to a traditional keyboard and mouse interface. Both 10-inch Switches will convert from notebook to tablet thanks to a removable keyboard, also offering a “tent” mode for when you need a built-in kickstand. Both these devices will be available in the third quarter of 2016.

Switch-V-10_06.0

The One 10 and V 10 notebooks feature:

  • 10-inch touchscreen display
  • Windows 10 with Continuum
  • Intel quad-core Atom processors
  • Removable keyboard with magnetic hinge design
  • 32GB and 64GB models

The slightly more upmarket V 10 will also pack in:

  • USB Type-C port for charging, data transfer and video output
  • Fingerprint reader
  • An optional keyboard dock with 500GB of storage and two USB Type-A ports
  • Corning Gorilla Glass screen
