Bottom Line

Tablet or PC mode this device is portable, versatile with great specs and a stylish form factor. The battery life could have been longer though.

The Acer Aspire Switch 11 SW5-171-39LB is a bestselling 2014 11.6-inch convertible laptop that received positive reviews for its hybrid design, sharp Full-HD display, solid performance, fast transfer speeds and a comfortable keyboard. However, it loses out to pricier competitors due to its shorter battery life, quieter speakers and a slightly heavier build. Most of its negatives are minor quirks which budget buyers will be happy to forget considering its affordable price tag.

    The Acer Aspire Switch 11 is a 2-in-1 hybrid that offers solid power and performance for the money, but short battery life and a top-heavy design hold it back.
