Convertible laptops are a hot thing right now and Acer is joining the crowd with their new tablet convertible that Acer claims to the be the first 'Intel Core i' system that does not have a fan. Acer says they have engineered a fanless liquid cooling system for the Switch Alpha 12. At just 15mm thin, the new Acer Switch Alpha 12 looks seemingly identical to Microsoft's own Surface Pro lineup but Acer does include the keyboard alongside the device. The Acer Active Pen (stylus) is optional though.
