Acer releases the One 10, a Windows 2-in-1 that sells for just $200

acer releases 200 2 in 1 windows tablet called one 10 acerone1
Acer is going even deeper into the world of affordable laptops, this time rolling out its cheapest 2-in-1 Windows tablet/laptop to date. Already available for sale, Acer’s new One 10 sports a modest $200 price tag and specs that fall right into what we’d expect to see from a budget laptop in that range.

Jumping into those specs, buyers will find that the Acer One 10 has a modest 2GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage, and a quad-core Intel Atom processor. Obviously, these are all on the lower end of the spectrum as laptops go, but pretty much on par with what we’ve come to expect from a computer falling into that ultra-budget $200 price range. It also comes with Windows 8.1 installed out of the box, which means users will be able to get an upgrade to Windows 10 when it releases in just a few days.

The new 2-in-1 from Acer features a 10.1-inch display with a 1,280 x 800 resolution. It also features micro HDMI support for connecting it to an external display. allowing users to relax their eyes a bit with a larger screen when at home if they so choose.

Speaking of ports, there’s a USB port and microSD card slot on the Acer One 10. Because of the relatively small 32GB of storage offered, users might look to expand with a card, so it’s nice to have that option.

The keyboard dock is included out of the box, not sold as a separate accessory like some Windows tablets (namely the Microsoft Surface Pro). The dock is also flexible, allowing users to sit the 2-in-1 in four different positions depending on how they want to use it.

Other notable features of the Acer One 10 are two 1600 x 1200 cameras (one on the front, one on the back), a built-in microphone, and a 8,400 mAh battery. While not as light as the powerhouse ultrabooks on the market, it does weigh in at a respectable 2.6 pounds even with the keyboard attached.

Acer’s new laptop is available for sale now through Acer itself, and through third-party retailers like Best Buy, for $200.
