The Acer Chromebook Spin 311 is a fine little machine. It's not a top performer, but it's not setting out to be. It delivers on its promise of solid everyday performance and killer battery life. If you need something simple to use around the house or give the kids, the Spin 311 makes a lot of sense.

As a budget-minded Chromebook, the newest version of the Spin 311 may be light on ports, but the MediaTek processor gives it truly all-day battery life while still having enough power for schoolwork, light work, and casual computing. Since it lacks a microSD slot, I highly recommend buying the 64GB model.

At the end of the day, we are a little disappointed with this notebook. Yep, you have everything you need from this tablet-replacement, but when compared to its predecessor – the Chromebook Spin 311 (CP311-2H), we got a lot lower performance – both in the CPU and the GPU department. Of course, if you mainly use Docs and Spreadsheets, this shouldn’t really bother you. But if you value speed and low latency, then you might want to divert from this unit.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
