I got the one at challenger for 89? It has 2 usb ports 1 Ethernet 1 HDMI and you can plug in your usb charger to it for power delivery. Works quite well.

Connectivity is typically a problem for a hybrid like this. You will definitely need to get an adapter. I got mine from Lazada which gives me 1 USB 3.0, 1 HDMI and 1 USB Type C charging port for around 15 bucks. Even on the MS Surface Pro 4, you will also need an adapter to convert the Display Port to HDMI.

It depends on which country you bought. In Singapore, ships with Active Pen only. Active Pen 2 need to order separately to oversea.

But in Europe, it comes with the device in the box.

I saw the ones at Challenger and find the price too challenging for my wallet. That's why I purchased mine from Lazada and it works well too for less than 20% of the price in Challenger.

Ya, I don't understand why units selling in Singapore comes with Active Pen only and not Active Pen 2. In Europe, it is comes with Active Pen 2 and price is more cheaper than SG.

Hi guys, just curious, any one considering Acer switch 5?
Previously I was considering the older Acer Switch 12 before I decided to just go with this Miix 720. What I like about the Switch 12 is the fanless liquid cooling which seems to work well to keep the CPU cooled. Acer Switch 5 was nowhere in sight at that time.

So far I am liking the Miix 720. Only complain is the lack of USB ports, which is normal for a Hybrid.
