If you’re in the market for a 2-in-1 device then there’s an increasing amount of choice when it comes to powerful Windows tablets with magnetic clip-on keyboards. And the Acer Switch 5 has all the spec prowess to take on the Microsoft Surface.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen this form clip-on-keyboard form factor, as last year’s Acer Switch Alpha 12 delivered a similar 12.2-inch design with liquid cooling that was, we thought, an ace on account of its price point.

The Switch 5 does things a little differently: it’s more powerful than the Alpha yet retains the liquid cooling for silent operation, comes with a one-hand adjustable stand, fingerprint scanner and, as you might expect, a higher starting price tag of around £1,000/$1,500-1,100/$1,650 (for the Intel Core i5 model on review).
