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
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
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.

13.00":

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.

1.2 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.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
