      I think that the Acer Aspire Switch 10 would be really useful for college/university students.

      Unlike all the other tablet PC out there, the Acer Aspire Switch 10 Pro is one of the few tablets that comes with a keyboard docking which by the way, does not come separately. The word Switch in the name plays and important role when it can be use as a portable tablet and also work as a laptop. The Acer Aspire Switch 10 has a hybrid mechanism that actually works, and it has a decent keyboard and touchpad for such a small body. The Acer Aspire Switch 10 is a budget hybrid that skips the more-common fold-back or button-clasp hinges and instead attaches its screen via a magnetic connection. It shares the same hardware limitations as other small hybrids, but can be easier to use. Acer says its Switch 10 hybrid is especially flexible and built to work in four distinct modes. That may be a somewhat generous description, but it's similar to what other detachable or Yoga-style hybrids can do. There's the traditional clamshell mode, then the screen pops off and can be replaced facing outwards, forming a kind of kiosk mode, which Acer calls "display" mode. The kiosk shape can be flipped upside down to form a table tent, a form commonly cited by PC makers, but one that I've never seen a hybrid owner use in real life. Finally, the screen can detach as a full standalone slate-style tablet. At $400 for the 64GB version, I'm willing to consider the performance tradeoffs demanded of the Switch 10 and its Atom processor versus the slightly zipper (and more expensive) Yoga 2 11 and HP Pavilion x360 hybrids, in return for what I consider a more functional hybrid design, which kept me coming back to the Switch 10 day after day, even with more powerful hardware at hand.
