The improved Acer Spin 5 model comes in at 13 and 15 inch versions, so you can choose which model you would like to purchase. Acer included some new features like the eighth-gen Intel Core processors, a clearer screen, better stylus support and a better keyboard for people typing. The model is quite stylish and the metal build is glistening while being solid as a rock. The bad thing is, that the labtop is slightly heavier weighing at 3.31 pounds. 13 inch convertibles from Samsung and Hp weigh 2.5 pounds which is quite a big difference if you ask me.
The Acer Spin 5 comes with a stylus that is great for taking notes and drawing but unfortunately, there is no place for owners to store their stylus on the labtop. Even though the Acer Spin 5 is not made specifically for watching videos/shows, it can be used as your TV alternative whenever you want to use it. Its clear and bright screen displays bright colors with wide-viewing angles and the speakers, which are located above the keyboard, are impressively loud. Audio quality will suffer at maximum volume and distortions, but lowering it will help avoid it.
The specs of the screen contains 13.3-inch IPS screen, 1920×108-pixel resolution with a 16:9 screen ratio. There is also a special mode, called the tent mode which is made especially for watching videos or shows in a tight space. When watching, the labtop’s hinges are sturdy and holds its position firmly. The down side is that the speakers face the opposite direction of the screen which directs the sound away from the viewer. Even though, the nuisance is small it is noticeable.
The good side about the Acer Spin 5 is that it has a useful convertible design with a sturdy and current build. It has a solid keyboard, stylus support, surprisingly loud speakers and long battery life. The only bad side is that its quite heavy. Other than that, it has a pretty good price and i would get this computer for work as it seems really good. The price that it is starting at is $700.
