Acer Chromebook Spin 311 CP311-3H in review: Enduring Chromebook convertible for the small purse

ARM makes it possible. The Spin 311 offers an IPS touchscreen display, silent operation, and long battery runtimes. Acer relies on an ARM processor for the Chromebook convertible. The total package is available for about 260 Euros (~$260) at the time of testing.

Case & Connectivity - The Spin 311 does not offer a memory card reader

The Acer Chromebook Spin 311 has a plastic casing in a matte silver color. The black display bezel is an exception. The chassis is well manufactured: The gaps are even and sharp edges are not noticeable. However, the device should have a higher rigidity overall. The battery is permanently installed. The innards can be accessed after removing the bottom cover.

The reduced range of interfaces consists of an audio combo slot, a USB Type-A port (USB 2.0), and a USB Type-C port (USB 3.2 Gen 1). The latter supports Power Delivery and DisplayPort via USB-C. The Qualcomm Wi-Fi chip supports the 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac standards and offers Bluetooth functionality.

The included USB-C power adapter supplies up to 45 watts of power. Thus, it can also be used to charge the batteries of other devices. A list of supported voltages/currents can be found on the power adapter (see picture in the gallery).

Input devices - The Chromebook does not have a backlit keyboard

The flat, slightly roughened keys of the unlit chiclet keyboard have a short travel and a clear pressure point. The key resistance could be a bit crisper. The keyboard flexes slightly during typing. This did not prove to be annoying. Overall, Acer delivers a keyboard that is suitable for everyday use

The smooth surface of the multi-touch clickpad (10.5 x 6 cm) makes it easy for the fingers to glide. It also responds to inputs in the corners. The pad has a short stroke and a clear pressure point. The touchscreen supports 10-point multitouch. It did not cause us any problems and responds promptly to inputs.

While the glossy 11.6-inch touchscreen display (1,366 x 768 pixels) delivers a good contrast (1,043:1), the brightness (214.4 cd/m²) is too low. We consider values beyond 300 cd/m² to be good.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
29 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16 ms rise
↘ 13 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 68 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.1 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
45 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 21 ms rise
↘ 24 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 68 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.2 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9720 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 151500) Hz was measured.

The screen has decent color reproduction out of the box. However, the target (Delta-E2000 less than 3) is missed with a Delta-E2000 color deviation of almost 5. The display does not suffer from a blue cast.

The IPS panel can be read from any position thanks to its stable viewing angles. Outdoors, reading the display is hardly possible due to the reflective screen surface and the low display brightness.

Performance - ARM ensures efficiency

Acer's Chromebook Spin 311 is a convertible Chromebook in an 11.6-inch format that provides enough performance for simple office and Internet applications. Our review sample is available for about 260 Euros (~$260) at the time of this review.

Processor

The Chromebook is powered by a passively cooled MT8183 SoC from Mediatek. The SoC has eight CPU cores (4x Cortex A73, 4x Cortex A53) that form a big.LITTLE compound.

Mass storage

An eMMC module with a capacity of 64 GB serves as the system drive. Storage expansion is possible via a microSD card.

Graphics card

The Mali-G72-MP3 GPU takes care of the graphics output. An integrated decoder relieves the processor during video playback. Widely used formats like H.264, H.265/HEVC, and VP9 are supported.

Emissions and power consumption - silent operation

Noise emissions

The Chromebook is passively cooled and does not have a mechanical drive on board. Thus, the device operates silently.

Temperature

The convertible practically does not heat up. Under load (Octane V2 and Jetstream benchmarks run in a loop), we register temperatures below 30 degrees Celsius across the chassis.

Acer equips the Spin 311 with a frugal, passively cooled ARM SoC that provides enough performance for office and Internet applications. It is supported by 4 GB of memory and a 64 GB eMMC module.

The Acer Chromebook Spin 311 CP311-3H is a well-rounded and mobile learning, writing, and surfing machine for students that does not tear too deep a hole in the wallet.

One battery charge is enough for a WLAN runtime of 13 hours - you should get through the day without the included USB-C power adapter. The latter does not have to be used. Other commercially available USB power adapters can also be used to charge the battery.

The HD IPS touchscreen display scores with good contrast, stable viewing angles and decent color reproduction. The maximum brightness is very low. Thus, the device is primarily made for indoor use. The built-in keyboard (non-illuminated) proved to be suitable for everyday use. Thanks to integration with the Google Play Store, countless Android apps are available for use on the Chromebook.

Price and availability

The Acer Chromebook Spin 311 is currently available in this configuration (Mediatek MT8183, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB eMMC) for between 300 and 360 Euros at notebooksbilliger.de and Cyberport.de. Price tip: during the course of this review, Saturn and Media Markt have the configuration variant we tested for a price of 253.44 Euros. We cannot say how long this offer will last.
