    Quick question does anyone know when this device will become available to buy in Europe?

    After looking around at the available choices it seems this device is the front runner to replace my Aloha 12 with a broken screen, pending confirmation of the pen tech used. Acer's site only lists 1 model for sale, an i7 so far.

    Microcenter is now showing the Switch 5 in stock online and in store in some areas.

    So anyone got the Switch 5 yet? I was wondering about its real world battery life and if the stylus got any better than the SA12.

    May be pickling one up soon as my Switch 12 has a broken screen (dropped) and charger is very flaky. One negative I've come across is the pen tech is said to be "Elan Gen 4" by a supposed Acer rep on the Amazon product page ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073PYXBB...e=395261&creativeASIN=B073PYXBBR&linkCode=asn ) which does not bode well but I don't see another viable alternative around this price point.

    By the way the Switch 5 has been out for a while and the pen isn't the Synaptics pen in the publicity shots, it's a Microsoft pen, so good news!
