For parents looking for a serviceable Chromebook for grade-school students, the Spin 311 will fit most budgets while also giving kids the ability to play Android games after they have finished their last Zoom class and Google Classroom assignment of the day. Even considering its convertible versatility, however, most users would be better served spending a bit more for a larger Chromebook. With only a 11.6-inch display, the Acer is best suited for smaller hands and lighter tasks.
