Unfortunately, the 11 V is a juice hog. On the PCMark 8 Battery Life test it lasts only 3 hours and 38 minutes, falling behind both the TP200SA and the Spectre x2. On my personal “movie” test it performed even worse, lasting only 2 hours and 51 minutes.
In spite of its supposedly efficient Broadwell chip, the 11 V’s screen runs a little hot after extended use as well. The base, luckily, never heats up at all.
When it may not be the most powerful and energy efficient 2-in-1 in its class, the Acer Aspire Switch 11 V does provide a especially unique and enjoyable user experience. If you can get over its looks, the 11 V has a lot to offer for its price.
