What You Need to Know About Acer Convertible Tablets

A convertible computer, also known as a 2-in-1, is a cross between a laptop and a tablet. A convertible tablet's ultraportable form factor makes it easy to carry important aspects of your life with you wherever you go. You can use this device for work and play.

What are some features of a convertible laptop?

A 2-in-1 computer is similar in appearance to a tablet, but in other respects, it resembles a laptop. It is equipped with a desktop operating system, extra input and output ports, and a detachable or foldable keyboard. The keyboard allows the device to be placed in different modes. When you remove the keyboard or fold it behind the screen, the device resembles a tablet, and the touchscreen is the only means of interaction with the computer. When you attach the keyboard, the Acer resembles a sub-notebook, which is a smaller, lighter version of a full-sized laptop. Another way of operating the device is to partially fold the keyboard back and stand the device on a surface. This mode allows you to watch videos or interact with the touchscreen while freeing up both of your hands.

What Acer 2-in-1 models are available?

There are several 2-in-1 models available, including the Acer Aspire Switch, the Iconia Tab W500, and the Iconia W510 and W700. Despite a few significant differences, Aspire and Iconia 2-in-1 models share several features in common, including:

  • A 10.1-inch or 11.6-inch LCD display
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity
  • Front and rear cameras
  • Solid-state drives
  • HDMI ports
  • USB ports

With the exception of the AMD-based Iconia Tab W500, all models are powered by either an Intel Atom or Intel Core processor. Most models also have a microSD card slot for additional storage. When choosing a 2-in-1, consider the specs of the processor, the amount of internal storage space available, and the resolution of the screen; some models have as much as 1080p resolution.

What are the main types of displays?

The typical 2-in-1 computer will have either a TFT or IPS display. TFT stands for thin-film transistor. The transistors act as switches that can turn each individual pixel on or off. In practical terms, a TFT display can improve the image quality by controlling the attributes of individual pixels. IPS, which stands for in-plane switching, is a type of LCD display that tends to maintain consistent viewability regardless of the viewing angle.
