It has a all new design with the display part including a new part that helps users to use the device in various modes.

“Equipped with a unique kickstand design that features a magnetic and latch-less detachable keyboard, the centerpiece of the Aspire Switch 12 is its ability to easily transition between five distinct modes (notebook, pad, display, tent and desktop).
