Is the Switch Alpha 12 Screen scratch resistant?

I have tried searching about this product but could not find any concrete information what kind of glass is used on the screen? I'm concern that dirt between the screen and keyboard cover would result in scratches. If I place a screen protector on the screen, it would probably result in more drag on the Active stylus...

 

Please advise. Thanks in advance! Smiley Happy

    It's an old post but maybe someone want to know the same. As far as I know the Acer Switch Alpha 12 is using Gorilla Glass 4 from 2014.

    Hi, I just finished chatting with Acer and the SA5-271 does “not have Gorilla Glass on the screen.” I had been unable to find that information anywhere on the Acer website or in reviews so I contacted Acer. I am disappointed and will be considering getting a screen protector.

     

    I have had mine since July and the screen is perfect still but I have not used it much out of the house. I will be taking it traveling, camping and on photography jaunts soon and I worry about the screen getting scratched.

     

    Anyone know of a good screen protector to use? Thanks for any advice.

     

    Cheers.

    Love my Switch Alpha 12!

    Designed for all-round durability, the Aspire Switch 12 uses next generation Corning® Gorilla® Glass to protect the display and has a latch-less magnetic keyboard connector tab design for easy mode switching, while offering a sturdy mechanical connection. It also features a whisper quiet, fan-less design that complements the very low power consumption processor.

    Hi, The Aspire Switch 12 is a different model than the Aspire Switch Alpha 12 (SA5-271 see http://acer.com/ac/en/US/content/series/switchalpha12 ) There is no mention of Gorilla Glass on the SA5-271 on the Acer website.

     

    I strongly suspect that Acer would tell me if the Aspire Switch Alpha 12 had Gorilla Glass and not tell me "I have checked your device's specifications, and it does not have Gorilla Glass on the screen. Also, we do not sell screen protectors for this device. We recommend to be careful and not drop the device."

     

    I hope you are right but I think it's more likely that Acer cut that corner on the Aspire Switch Alpha 12. Maybe it is even Gorilla Glass 4?

     

    Have a good day.

    Love my Switch Alpha 12!
