Second on our Acer computer deal roundup is the Aspire Switch 10, a unique and versatile 2-in-1 laptop/tablet hybrid. The 10.1-inch Gorilla Glass 3 touchscreen has a resolution of 1,280 x 800 and can separate from the keyboard for stand-alone use as a tablet.

If you prefer a more traditional laptop size but want to keep the weight down, the Swift 3 ultra-thin laptop is a sleek option that weighs in at just 3.3 pounds. The 14-inch IPS display features a 1080p Full HD resolution and the computer comes equipped with a 2.30GHz Intel i5-6200U dual-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a speedy 256GB solid state drive.

Aspire U5 all-in-one desktop
The Acer Aspire U5 is purpose-built for those who need a more traditional computer form factor than a laptop or netbook can provide, but without the bulky footprint of a standard PC tower. This all-in-one desktop computer features a 23-inch 1080p display along with an integrated Intel i5-4200M dual-core processor, DVD drive, and 8GB of RAM. An internal hard drive provides one terabyte of storage for your apps and files. The IPS screen serves as a convenient 10-point touch display and is treated with an anti-fingerprint coating.
Switch Alpha 12 2-in-1 laptop
If a 2-in-1 laptop/tablet hybrid appeals to you but you’d like a bigger display and more laptop-like specs than those found on the Aspire Switch 10, then the Switch Alpha 12 is a stand-out option in the Acer lineup with an Intel i7-6500U processor, 8GB of onboard RAM, and a 256GB solid state drive.
