The two Android based tablets unveiled at Acer’s event in New York City on Tuesday might be targeting specific users who require cheap and affordable tablets, but Acer wasn’t shy to show the same kind of presence in the Windows side as well. Borrowing elements we’ve seen established by Lenovo’s line of Yoga mobile computing devices, the Acer Aspire Switch 10 is aiming to accomplish the same feat, but in a more compact and affordable package. Part tablet, part full-blown laptop, this 2-in-1 device ensures itself as being a useful gadget on the road – where work and play can mix together...

Looks really nice and much cheaper than the surface. More function then a normal surface and half the price of a surface pro.

I don't understand how people actually use those netbook size keyboards. Tried for months to get used to one - ITS TORTURE!

I bought this to do light Windows tasks, and to be an ebook reader for reference documents. This tablet was advertised as having 32GB of flash, but only 25GB of that was available, and over half of that was used for the OS and the included MS Office. So, this 32GB Windows tablet ends up with the same amount of available space as a 16GB Android tablet.

I found a 7GB Recovery partition, followed the manufacturer's instructions about backing it up, and deleting it. This would have provided some much needed space, but it wouldn't delete, and Acer would neither help, nor provide the media necessary to resolve the issue.

While I could have resolved this with a bit more work, I had spent far too much time on it already. My time has value. For the cost of my time to fix it, I could get a 64GB tablet from someone else.

Recommendation: Don't buy a 32GB Windows tablet. Minimum should be 64GB.
