I have a Acer Aspire Switch 10 (SW5-012-18MY) this one came with eMMC 32GB + 500 GB HDD (the 500 GB HDD is on the keyboard.
After a fall the tablet stopped working (not charging or starting). 
I was looking to replace the tablet only, but the devices I found only had 32 GB storage.
Can someone tell me if I buy any of those tablets, is it possible to use it with my old Keyboard that has the hard drive. 
Is it only setting issue or the firmware is different?
Most models have SW5-012, but at the end they have different numbers.
thank you for your help.

    Unless the keyboard HD failed during the fall you'll be able to use it with the new tablet. It acts to the tablet like a USB drive, so is recognized.
