Acer's Switch 2-in-1 Laptops Start at $249

Acer just took the wraps off a pair of budget-priced laptops. The Switch V 10 and Switch One 10 start at just $249. 

Both Windows 10 laptops feature 1o-inch multitouch displays with antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass, quad-core Intel Atom CPUs, 802.11ac and an integrated fingerprint reader with a USB Type-C port for charging. The Switch V 10 comes with metal lids that come in a variety of colors (black, light blue, dark blue, red and white), while the Switch One 10 features a gray, brushed metal look. Like most 2-in-1s, you can detach the screen for use as a tablet, or you can invert the whole thing to use in tent mode.
