The PC market appears to be improving, and the PC-versus-tablet debate is far less relevant. Over the past few months, OEMs have tried to introduce new form factors like hybrid and convertible PCs. However, for a long time 2-in-1s were too expensive and out of reach of the average person.
Now OEMs like Acer have finally started to come up with affordable 2-in-1 devices aimed at users who need something more powerful than a tablet, but not as expensive as today's mainstream laptop computers.
For those looking for something portable and personal, Acer One 2-in-1 convertible notebook seems to be an ideal choice.
The Acer One 2-in-1 features a 10-inch HD touchscreen display. It is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom CPU (unspecified chipset), paired with 1GB/2GB RAM options. Notably, it comes with 500GB of native storage, which can be expandable up to 32GB via micro-SD card.
As expected, the notebook runs Windows 8.1 out-of-the-box. The convertible features a magnetic detachable Acer Snap Hinge design for easy transition between its 4 key modes, namely: Notebook, Pad, Display and Tent mode.
"The Acer One is a stunning addition to the Acer portfolio of connected devices. Indian consumers being intrinsically multitaskers will love this device as it helps us to do just that - achieve more from each moment of our lives." said S Rajendran, chief marketing officer, Acer India.
The Acer One is priced at Rs. 19,999 for the 1GB RAM variant and the 2GB RAM variant costs around Rs. 21,999. The company says the 2-in-1 device is excluisve to Amazon.in, and will be made available starting today.
