Add in Android compatibility and the whole-day battery life (simply scale back the display brightness) and you’ve got a surprising product that deserves to be thought-about.Compared to Windows gadgets, this Chromebook holds its floor, though the varied relative deserves of every working system will in all probability have to be mentioned individually. Should Acer produce a Windows model of this laptop computer? Sure. Could Acer make a model with each working programs? Why not?

If you’re after a Chromebook for business use, the Spin 13 is probably the best out there, pushing Google’s Pixelbook aside thanks to better hardware and a bundled stylus that’s more than just a gimmick.

Overall, the Acer Spin hits a ton of high points and checks off a lot of boxes for a lot of users. It is well built with a fantastic display that feels larger than the 13.5-inch spec sheet implies. The pen is great and always there, battery life is solid, and performance is insane.

If you are looking for a Chromebook with high levels of performance, the Chromebook Spin 13 is it. However, the performance is absolute overkill for most people and the $899 price means a select few will actually take advantage of what is being offered.

That’s about it for my impressions of the Acer ChromeBook Spin 13, but as I mentioned from the beginning, I’m not a ChromeBook user and thus have looked at this one from the subjective perspective of a Windows user, so feel free to add your opinions and questions in the comments sections below.
