Acer is holding a pretty gigantic event today, and one of the things it's announced is the Switch Alpha 12, a "detachable PC" as the Taiwanese company calls it. It's a 2-in-1 device that can be used either as a tablet or as a laptop, and it runs Windows 10 as you'd expect.

The Switch Alpha 12 has a 12-inch 2,160x1,440 touchscreen, and it's powered by 6th generation Intel Core processors (a choice of i3, i5, or i7). You can configure it with 4GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 128GB of storage, as well as Intel's RealSense 3D camera.

The device is fanless despite using proper i-series chips from Intel, and that's becautilize it features a newly designed liquid cooling system to haged its innards at the required temperature.

It has a built-in kickstand (as can be seen in the promotional images), and the keyboard will be bundled with it, so no need to pay extra for that. Optionally you'll be able to pick up the Acer Active Pen stylus with 256 levels of pressure supported. The whole Switch Alpha 12 (including keyboard) weighs only 1.25kg.

The Acer Switch Alpha 12 will start at $599, and should become available in June.
