    Is Acer hiding the switch 7 from reviewers. Where is it?

    Guys/Gals is the store really selling Acer switch 7 right now? Can someone double check and report back. Have anyone bought the unit, how is it fairing.

    There are 13 units on Amazon. Guess no one is buying. There are no reviews either. Is Acer hiding the 7? They should be flogging the 7 as their flagship product.

    Detatchable 2in1 notebook like surface
    There is i7 8550. (High spec)
    acer's flagship laptop

    it has emr pen.(no charge)
    in case of surface- you should buy the pen and keyboard separately
    but this tablet Comes with a keyboard and pen.
    Pen performance is very good. Enough to draw a professional webtoon

    Auto stand function is good.
    I felt uncomfortable to have to unfold manually even though it was a thousands-dollar laptop.
    But it is not very good if the floor is not hard.

    With the MX150
    Video editing is great.
    You can enjoy a lot of games.
    (except high-performance games like doom and battleground)

    * cooling system explain *
    no noise. no fan sound.
    but back cover is so hot
    I doubt if the cooling is working properly.

    display is good
    2256 * 1504
    The width is slightly shorter.

    * Dolby audio *
    I wonder how these sounds come from such a small place.
    Really good
    camera in front and rear
    The finger sensor is also good.

    * usb specs explain *
    it has usb 3.0, usb c (thunderbolt 3), micro sd slot

    There are two models, i7 and i5.
    i7 = 1760 $
    i5 = 1376 $

    Battery time is 9 ~ 10hour (probably not for high performance such as video editing)
    you can use almost all day long

    /* maybe battery is not poor

    That sounds almost to good to be true, please report back after a few days, if you still see 9-10 hours as possible.

    More like 4 to 5 hours max. I never seen an i5 model. There is only one model in the West. That review is basic. Not real test.

    Apple just released a new iPad with impressive specs. HP released the Folio. Surface pro 6 got an update. The Switch 7 announced 1 year ago and only now shipping in numbers seems big, heavy, expensive and not very innovative. Acer got slammed.

    If there's not a definitive review by @MobileTechReview it's not a consideration for me, regardless of unicorn tech specs. The user reviews are all over the map. Such a shame—it really looked ideal when annonced a year and two months ago. :confused:

    That's nearly an elephantine gestation period.
