When Acer unveiled two new versions of their Aspire Switch 10 on April 23, they didn’t reveal all the specs, like the very important processor type. But now they’ve spilled the beans ahead of COMPUTEX 2015.
Acer says that the Full HD model Acer Aspire Switch 10 (SW5-015) will be powered by a 14 nm GHz Intel Atom x5 “Cherry Trail-T” processor. The means either the x5-Z8300 or Z8500 processor, both of which are 1.44 GHz quad-core units.
The other 2-in-1 model in this series, the Acer Aspire Switch 10 E (SW3-013) landed in US stores just a few days ago, for under $298.
When the Full HD model launches for over $100 more, it will have to compete against the Full HD $349 Asus Transformer Book T100 Chi though, a Windows 2-in-1 that also has more hours of battery life.
