Though it's a Chromebook instead of a Windows laptop, Acer's Chromebook Spin 713 wears the same "Engineered for Mobile Performance" sticker as other notebooks that meet Intel's state-of-the-art "Project Athena" standard for conveniences such as quick wake and long battery life. But beyond those important mandates, this Spin model has two other things going for it as an alternative to a Windows 2-in-1. First, at $629 at Best Buy, it's a bargain—in fact, it's cheaper than some rival convertible Chromebooks. (The HP Chromebook x360 14 G1 and Asus Chromebook Flip C436 cost about $800 as tested.) Second, like the recently reviewed Acer Swift 3, its 13.5-inch display has a squarer 3:2 rather than the more familiar 16:9 aspect ratio, giving you a taller view for text and web scrolling. Getting a 3:2 ratio in a touch-screen convertible is rare and makes the Spin 713 an appealing choice—in fact, our new Editors' Choice among premium Chromebooks, most of which cost more.

Acer has hit upon a winning formula with its latest Chromebook offering. The Spin 713 marries excellent components, powerful performance, that 3:2 display and futureproof connectivity with a sensible price.

This is the more functional Pixelbook I wish Google had made this year to replace the aging OG Pixelbook. It's not as dainty, but it's a laptop that you can trust for the long haul, whether you're using it for coding and Linux applications or you just want to bang out some emails and fall down the Reddit hole for a few hours. In an age of work-from-home, it's powerful enough to keep a full productivity suite going while on a video call, but it's still got that Chrome OS simplicity and security we depend on.

There’s an awful lot to like about the Acer Chromebook Spin 713, no matter what you’re using it for. Avid writers will love the keyboard and extra screen real estate, while multimedia mavens will love the streaming capabilities of Google OS.

In short, some people thought 2020 might be the year of the premium Chromebook, the year companies proved that it was worth paying $1,000 for a nice Chrome OS device. The Spin 713 shows that, for the majority of us, it’s still not. 2020’s best Chromebook doesn’t look like a fancy, flashy, high-end machine — it looks like this.

If you are on the fence, buy this Chromebook. If you are looking for a nicer machine with faster internals, buy this one. If you are trying to figure out if the savings are worth it over a Galaxy Chromebook or ASUS Flip C436, I’ll help you out: yes they are. This is without doubt my favorite Chromebook of 2020 because of all that you get for your money and how long it will likely last you. Functional, fast, and durable make for a compelling package all around and I’m glad to recommend anyone looking for those things in a Chromebook to go and buy the excellent Acer Chromebook Spin 713.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
