Reviews for the Acer Chromebook Spin 13 CP713-1W

80% Acer Chromebook Spin 13 review
Source: Stuff TV English version
The Spin 13 is impressive, and one of the most versatile Chromebooks on the market. It looks the part thanks to its all-aluminium construction, the screen is fantastic, while the Core i5 processor and generous helping of memory inside make it more powerful than most other Chromebooks. It really does come down to how you’re going to use your new machine. If you’re already in bed with Google’s services – and happy to base your laptop life around them – then the Acer Chromebook Spin 13 is a fantastic choice.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

Acer: In 1976, the company was founded in Taiwan under the name Multitech and was renamed Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals. Since 2007, the group has merged with Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell, which also market their own laptop product lines.

Acer computers are designed for a variety of purposes, including ultrabooks for mobile use, gaming laptops for gamers, affordable options for everyday tasks, and 2-in-1 convertible laptops for versatility. Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
