Reviews for the Acer Chromebook Spin 513-2H-K627

If you plan to run demanding applications, you probably want a Chromebook with an AMD Ryzen or Intel Core CPU and a true SSD instead of eMMC flash storage. But if you'd like a lightweight 2-in-1 for everyday online time and Google Workspace productivity plus a little sketching or annotating, the Acer Spin 513 is an appealing, affordable option. If it came with a stylus and an HDMI port it'd earn an Editors' Choice award. Even without them, the Acer Chromebook Spin 513 is a nifty, affordable way to enjoy the benefits of a 3:2 aspect display.

Acer’s Chromebook Spin 513 is defined by its display. The 13.5-inch display’s uncommon 3:2 aspect ratio and sharp resolution add up to a surprising amount of usable screen space. It’s perfect for browsing the web or editing documents—which are the tasks Chromebooks are best suited for. The excellent display is supported by great battery life and an enjoyable keyboard, but it’s not all good news. Audio quality is disappointing, the touchpad is just average, and performance doesn’t stand out (though game performance is decent). These problems hold the Chromebook Spin 513 short of greatness, but it still remains a good option for ChromeOS fans who want a big, attractive touchscreen with tons of usable space.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
