Reviews for the Acer Chromebook Spin 311 CP311-2H-C95K

There is a lot to like about the Acer Chromebook Spin 311. It is generally well constructed and despite is plastic heavy design, does not feel cheap. It is also relatively affordable at R7 999 (RRP), with the only real downside being the fact that the 11.6″ HD display feels a little undersized if this notebook is made with the entry-level enterprise and education space in mind. The rotating screen is not a compelling enough feature to use daily either and should be viewed as a key selling point. The Chromebook Spin 311 then, serves up a solid Chrome OS experience, but may not be the best representation of what that environment is all about. The Acer Chromebook Spin 311 is a solid enough Chrome OS-powered notebook, but is lacking some oomph in certain areas, with the size of the display being a notable own. If you have room in your budget for a larger Chromebook within the Acer family sans rotating screen, it may be worthwhile looking there instead.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

In former time,s this weight was typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, often 15 inch laptops weigh as much.
