Product Description

This delightful hybrid is hiding a lot of pizzazz in its versatile chassis. It comes with a lot of features that elevate this to superiority. The first is the Acer Liquid Loop™ cooling system that means you won't have that annoying fan sound when you're working or playing hard. The 12-inch touchscreen is a pleasure to play with too, with the resolution offering enough crispness and color to please everyone. It's only improved by the high-tech look of the added backlight for extra intensity. The front-facing speakers are versatile and don't distort either. One of the best things about this hybrid is that you get an almost desktop PC level of performance. The stylus is perfect for doodling or for getting some written work done, so it's perfect for students or those looking for a device to take to work meetings. The SSD keeps it running quickly and without issues, and the overall result is a quality laptop that will keep up with demand.
