Laptops Apr 18, 2018 Vikram Khajuria
Acer is long known for its budget laptops for students and professionals. In the last 10 years, Acer has tried to add some makeover to its gadgets section and here it is with Spin 5. The factor which differentiates Spin 5 from other siblings of Acer is the convertibility. This machine is apt enough to get your job done and that too in budget price slot. Spin 5 is not for show-off, that’s for sure. Not to miss are the healthy range of ports.
So let’s find out if Acer is able to make some difference to its perception of mid-range laptop outfit.
The Acer Spin 5 laptop comes in 13- and 15-inch versions that run on Windows 10. Its features include all-metal build, silver linings, Intel 8th gen processors and a 3-cell Li-Polymer battery. Spin 5 turns out to be in a pretty conservative note if we take its design and aesthetics into consideration.
The laptop is stacked with 8th generation Intel Core i5 processor, which does a pretty decent job. Acer has offered 13.3-inch and 15-inch variants on this laptop. The connectivity ports are a big plus, as it has a 3.5mm audio jack, HDMI-output, SD card, USB 2.0+C, and 2x USB 3.0.
The display is quite impressive in terms of quality, as it has full HD IPS display which is remarkable for this class of laptop. But, if you are expecting any more cinematic experiences on Acer Spin 5 then you won't be doing justice to this device. The viewing angles won’t disappoint you, as the brightness is more than enough.
The placement of fingerprint sensor and the power button is surely a topic for discussion here. Although, the fingerprint sensor works fine, but the power button placed on the side was getting turned off more than occasionally or turning the device into sleep mode. This particular thing was quite frustrating while dealing with Acer Spin 5.
The stylus surely adds value to the notebook for a better experience and on testing it on sensitivity part, it performed up to my satisfaction. The next thing follows is the sound quality, which is been taken care by groovy Dolby Audio.
The company claims about battery looks much exaggerated. This snag can turn out to be the grey area for Spin 5. Even after running the laptop with optimal battery setting and 40% brightness, the laptop lasted for about 8 hours which is much less than 13 hours, as quoted by Acer on their product. However, 8 hours of battery life is good enough to survive a day.
The laptop is for everyday use, which won’t disappoint you in getting your job done. The convertible model has only added to the elegance of this machine with its 8th-gen i5 processor, dynamic display, and solid build quality makes sense. This laptop tends to be relevant for users who wish to use easy-to-go laptop that can be further converted as a notebook for an on-the-go run.
Acer Spin 5 has it all. You need to set your priorities right if you are weighing this option, as it is an excellent laptop for its price.
Where to buy: MSRP $620.00
