Superb performance without the noise
This lightweight 2-in-1 uses a space-age heat pipe cooling system to cool its high-performance CPU, so you get powerful computing without ever hearing the whine of a fan. Sporting a powerful 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor1, the Switch Alpha 12 is the perfect blend of productivity, portability and flexibility

Take your office with you
This thin and light device slips into your bag and disappears, only to reappear when you need to get work done. The full-size keyboard also features deep key travelling depth (1.4mm) for comfy and accurate typing. Adjust the kickstand to tilt the screen to the exact angle you need.

Cool, quiet and powerful
The Switch Alpha 12 makes no noise because it has no whining fan, and that's because it has a fan-less heat pipe CPU cooling system, Acer LiquidLoop™, that effectively cools the powerful CPU under its hood. Cool, quiet power – that pretty much sums up this great device.

The perfect port
This 2-in-1's powerful capabilities are extended seamlessly to external devices via a USB 3.1 Type-C™ port. This impressive port transfers data super-fast and streams high-res video to premium displays without a hitch. You can also recharge external devices like smartphones via this port.

Great audio and visuals
Your videos will look and sound perfect, thanks to a 12" touchscreen with 2160x1440 resolution and two front-facing speakers that offer fuller, more immersive sound.

Pro-level options
All models come with built-in TPM, and all models can connect to an optional WiGig dock2 for high-speed wireless data transfers. You can also transform the Switch Alpha 12 into a PC with desktop-grade performance via an optional external USB Type-C™ dock. Choose models with Windows 10 Pro if you need professional-grade software. Jot down ideas and notes with an optional Acer Active Pen.
