Reviews for the Acer Chromebook Spin 513

80% Acer Chromebook Spin 513 review: Get a bit more than you paid for
Source: Expert Reviews English
There’s some temptation to damn the Spin 513 with faint praise. It’s not particularly fast and nearly everything about it is solid rather than spectacular. Yet, when you look at what you’re getting for the money – a slick, slimline design, a decent screen, respectable performance and battery life – it’s an attractive proposition. And, arguably, it’s more usable and versatile than most other sub-£500 devices, Chrome OS, Windows or otherwise. With a bit more speed, a little more RAM and more storage, the Acer Chromebook Spin 513 would be a truly great Chromebook but, as it is, just good is good enough to be getting on with.

The Acer Chromebook Spin 513 is one of the best Chromebooks on the market today. Not only does its Arm-based processor mean it remains whisper-quiet in use, but also allows the the laptop to feature a super-slim and lightweight design. However, if you need a device that offers a little bit more functionality and performance power, then a budget Windows laptop might serve you better.

80% Acer Chromebook Spin 513 review: Outperforming its asking price
Source: Pocket Lint English
This Chromebook's phone-like Snapdragon processor doesn't bring the performance boost we hoped for, but a solid keyboard, touchpad, and screen combiation all help to make this a satisfying Chromebook.

Acer Chromebook Spin 513 initial review: Qualcomm 7c finds a sensible home
Source: Pocket Lint English Archive.org version
The introduction of Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c here assures battery longevity, the option of 4G on-the-go connectivity, and no limit to Chrome OS' functionality. No, the screen and overall spec won't blow your socks off, but that's not the point of this machine. It's all about being affordable, flexible - thanks to that 360-degree hinge - and is a real workhorse.

Hands on: Acer Chromebook Spin 513 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English Archive.org version
The Acer Chromebook Spin 513 is a very promising laptop, featuring the revolutionary Arm processor technology which enables a super-slender design, long battery life and 4G connectivity. What's more it's available from £399/$399, and so could well be one of the leading budget options once it launches.

This range of display format is largely the upper limit for tablets and the lower limit for subnotebooks.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small in size and therefore easily portable. The tiny display has the added advantage of requiring little power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions, which one is used to from a standard laptop, are almost not usable.

The same applies to tablets in this size range.

Acer: In 1976, the company was founded in Taiwan under the name Multitech and was renamed Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals. Since 2007, the group has merged with Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell, which also market their own laptop product lines.

Acer computers are designed for a variety of purposes, including ultrabooks for mobile use, gaming laptops for gamers, affordable options for everyday tasks, and 2-in-1 convertible laptops for versatility. Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.


80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
