We have been lucky enough to trial Acer's Switch Alpha laptop/tablet hybrid over the last few weeks!! As busy students constantly trying to balance work, study and rest this computer has definitely been an easy addition to our lifestyle.
We are totally not tech heads, but we do know when something is too hard to use we will not like it!! Using all Apple everything in our day to day lives, switching up to the Acer and Microsoft system was straight forward and not difficult like we expected.
The first thing we noticed is how light it is!! It is super easy to carry around during a long day at uni! Switching between the laptop/tablet modes means you can read your notes in tablet mode and then convert it back to laptop mode when you're ready to start writing that essay! The detatacheable keyboard feels nice to type on, but it is dangerously hard to stop yourself from pulling the magnetised board off and on again constantly!!
We all love to Netflix and chill in bed and there's nothing worse than awkwardly balancing your laptop on awkward angles as you try and get comfy. Switching it up (see what we did there) to the tablet mode means that you can lay on your side without having to worry about your laptop staying balanced because in tablet form it is way easier to control!
Over the next couple of weeks we will be trialling another laptop from Acer! Trying to keep the fun alive in the middle of peak assessment time!
