Reviews for the Acer Chromebook Spin 311 R721T-482Z

80% Acer Chromebook Spin 311 review: Brilliant for the basics
Source: Pocket Lint English
It's in this budget price bracket that Chrome OS's particular appeals shine through. Sure, the Spin 311 isn't incredibly slim and can't run proper Windows apps, but it's got a great keyboard, lasts for ample time, and delivers enough across the board for its asking price.

If you want something with a bigger tank, the larger Acer Chromebook 314 might be a better choice. However, the compact nature of the Acer Chromebook Spin 311 makes it an ideal smaller device for those who are looking for something that you can basically use one-handed.

Chromebooks have been a Windows alternative for a while and dependant on the tasks you want to carry out can be all you need. Certainly you would not get a Windows touch panel unit for anywhere near the price of this Chromebook offering.

AMD Radeon R4 (Stoney Ridge): Integrated graphics adapter of some AMD-A dual-core APUs ("Stoney Ridge"). Based on the GCN architecture, implements 192 shader units and runs at up to 600 MHz depending on the model. The performance can vary heavily depending on the TDP (10-15 Watts for the whole chip).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


A4-9120C: Entry-level APU for Chromebooks based on the 2016 Stoney-Ridge series with two CPU cores (one Excavator module with 2 integer and one FP unit) clocked between 1.6 - 2.4 GHz.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


11.6":

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.


1.5 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


82.5%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
