​Acer Spin 5 Review: Versatile Convertability

Posted on 07 February 2018 Tags: Computers, Laptops

Are you looking for an affordable, convertible notebook, the Acer Spin 5 can prove a worthwhile purchase. The 2-in-1 device offers you a wide range of features that you can expect from a high-end product. The Spin 5 comes with an HD touchscreen, a number of ports, a modern build, long-lasting battery, and a stylus pen. The best part is the price point this notebook is available for, i.e. starting at $700.

You can select between 13-inch and 15-inch versions. Regardless of the size you select, the body of the laptop comprises of all metal. Other features include a crisper, shaper screen, better support for the stylus, and the keyboard is an improvement on the previous model. The only catch is that the features don’t offer anything extraordinary. The standard set of features means you are unlikely to derive any inspiration from the notebook. Also, the design isn’t aesthetically appealing either.

The Spin 5 is a slightly heavy system, weighing over 3 pounds. This makes this notebook slightly heavier than other 13-inch models from HP and Samsung, which weigh less than 2.5 lbs today. There is no slot for storing the stylus on the laptop, though the stylus works perfectly if you want to draw or take notes.

The 13-inch version of the notebook is available for $700, which is slightly on the high side. But, you should consider the fact that you are getting a 2-in-1 device that offers you a wide range of applications. And although Acer doesn’t mention that this notebook is ideal for video viewing, you can use it as an alternative to watching TV.

The screen of the Spin 5 is decent, offering great color rendering and you enjoy multiple viewing angles. Moreover, the sound the speakers of the device offer is topnotch, which means you don’t have to connect external speakers, although the audio quality is not up to the mark.
