    I am following your reviews to try to decide what 2 and one to buy. I am not computer savy. But I need one for work. I want to use it to process payments via square, simple presentation, use a plug cd drive to view image software with, also Internet and photos/multimedia storage via external drive. Portability is also key as well. I want to spent less than 1000 for sure. 500 would be ideal as my staff will be using it as well so if they break it it’s not a big deal. I am considering the switch v 11 or the acer r13. Any comments or other recommendations would helpful

      The 11V should be nice, when it pops out. Another similar option would be the Asus Transformer Pad Chi T300. There’s also the Microsoft Surface, which is mostly a tablet with a keyboard folio, but it’s also somewhat slower than the other two devices mentioned above.

        I’d really suggest steering clear of the Asus Transformer .. I bought one 6 weeks ago and it’s been back to Asus twice since then. The Wifi controller just disappears. However Asus doesn’t have a fix for it because it looks like an incompatibility with the Windows 10 (disaster) release. Got a full purchase refund today .. (that’s why I’m now here looking at the Ace)

          Which Transformer? The T300 Chi?

            It doesn’t really matter which one .. as far as the Wifi hardware is concerned, they will all pobably have the same controller.

    There is not a version with 16/10 (1920/1200) screen planned?

    How come there are no reviews out there for the Acer Switch 11 V? Neither on this site (if we consider the above as a preview) nor on others?

      Well I DID buy the Acer Switch 11 .. and my granddaughter at highschool is VERY happy with it .. FAR better than the ASUS pile of junk we took back.
