ACER SWITCH 5
The aptly named Switch is Acer’s family of detachable notebooks of which the Switch 5 is its flagship. Based on first impressions, it is easy to dismiss it as a clone of Microsoft’s Surface Pro, but that would be missing the point.
One standout feature of the Switch 5 is its Liquidloop cooling system. In place of traditional heatsinks and fans, the Switch 5 instead uses a single fan-less liquid cooling circuit for cooling, allowing it to runs silently even under heavy loads.
The Switch 5 comes with a 12-inch IPS panel display with a 2,160 x 1,440 pixels resolution. The display is a little small and prone to reflection and glare, but it is crisp and sharp.

It also has an integrated kickstand, which is handy and can tilt the Switch 5 at an angle of up to 165 degrees.
Inside, the Switch 5 is powered by a seventh generation Intel Core i7-7500u processor with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of
