    Can anyone confirm if the 8 GB model is 1x8 or 2x4?

    Guys, I have some issue with my trackpad, where the mouse jump around the screen when I trying to use the trackpad. Have anyone have this issue? Is this normal?

    Another question does anyone have issue with the keyboard not responding and have to detach and reattach before able to use it?

    Hi Elerik. I have the i5/8GB/256GB model and HARDiNFO 8 reports I have 2 banks of 4GB RAM installed, each Hynix brand and running dual channel. Hope this helps. RAM specs.PNG

    Hi!
    I have an I5/8Go/256Go since one week and I'm very disappointed by the battery life...Between 2:30 and 4:00 maximum life achieved, despite having removed all Acer bloatware, using energy saving mode with 25% backlight. Even switch from Chrome to Edge!
    I have checked with various tool (Battery Bar, Hardware monitor, Batterymon...) and my battery report a 8% wear out of the box, which I find abnormal...
    Also, when I use powercfg to issue a battery report, there is no value issued for the battery capacity, which I find also abnormal.
    Could some of you check what is reported by using one the above tool about their battery?

    The shop I purchase it offer to have a fast troubleshooting done and would propose an exchange, but I'm afraid I may pick one with dead pixel for which no exchange is possible...

    So I bought a Nintendo Switch which is powered by a usb c adapter. I tried it out with my alpha 12, and for anyone who cares, it charges it just fine :)

    Can anyone tell me if this model can be configured to sleep, shut down or hibernate on closing, in the manner of conventional laptops? and in the case of sleep or hibernate, resume on opening?

    It works for me but you can't connect the Anker's 5 port 60W direct to the acer switch 12. I connect it to Verbatim USB-C hub with HDMI and then plug to the machine and it works perfectly. (the usb-c hub as a connector)

    Yes. The included keyboard acts like a lid of a laptop and can be configured however.
