Reviews for the Acer Chromebook Spin 514 CP514-1H-R79Q

90% Acer Chromebook Spin 514 Review: Almost the complete package for Chrome OS
Source: Phandroid English
So who is the Chromebook Spin 514 for? It’s priced at $499 for the base model here in the U.S. at Best Buy, which includes the Ryzen 3 3250C, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of eMMC flash storage. Acer also offers configurations of the Spin 514 including 8GB of RAM and 64GB of flash storage for $529, and the model we tested with the Ryzen 5 processor retails for $599. Between the incredible keyboard experience, the versatility offered by the rotating hinge, and the MIL-STD 810H rating, this would make a wonderful Chromebook for a student. 14-inch displays are kind of the sweet spot for productivity, as 11-inch displays are just too small, and anything larger tends to be too heavy to carry for long periods of time. The Acer Chromebook Spin 514 is really the complete package, and if you can get over the potential frustrations with the trackpad, then we would definitely recommend it for just about everyone.

70% Acer Chromebook Spin 514 review: Mean green machine
Source: Android Authority English
The Acer Chromebook Spin 514 is a well-built machine that is more durable than many Chromebooks thanks to the MIL-STD rating. It can handle drops and other abuses and come away none the worse for wear. This makes it ideal for people who are frequently working or studying on the go. It also happens to be attractive for such a durable piece of tech, particularly in green. It is held back some by the AMD Ryzen 5 processor and battery life, of that there’s no question. The speakers could be a little better, too. At least it has a solid selection of ports, a good trackpad, and a good keyboard. The Acer Chromebook Spin 514 will best serve people who need a rugged machine, but who don’t need a top-performing laptop. The Spin 514 is a horse of the slow and steady variety, a working animal rather than a thoroughbred racehorse. It gets the job done at its own pace.

The Acer Chromebook Spin 514 fails to deliver in too many regards to be worth its $599 asking price. While standout Chromebook hardware is almost an oxymoron, in this premium price range, it is reasonable to expect more and we’ve even seen that from Acer itself with the Chromebook Spin 713. If you can find it on sale, there are reasons to recommend the Spin 514; the keyboard is one of the nicest I’ve used on a Chromebook, the durable chassis means it can hold up to being tossed in a bag and taken everywhere (although the 3.64 pounds makes that less enticing) and the performance is above average for a Chromebook. It doesn’t belong in the upper-echelon of Chromebooks as would be suggested by its retail price, so if you are swayed by the things that it does well, then I’d advise holding out for a sale before you pick up the Spin 514. And while you wait, take a hard look at the best Chromebooks; I promise you, there are better options out there for less.

We waffled between giving the Acer Chromebook Spin 514 three-and-a-half or four stars on our five-star scale before deciding that its relatively rare and convenient inclusion of a full-size HDMI port tipped it into four-star territory. It doesn't bump its Spin 713 sibling from Editors' Choice honors because of the latter's squarer 3:2 screen and solid-state storage, but if you watch a lot of videos or otherwise prefer the more common 16:9 aspect ratio, it's a flexible and successful Chromebook.

80% Acer Chromebook Spin 514 review: Meet the best 14-inch Chromebook of 2021
Source: Android Central English
Acer's first Ryzen-powered Chromebook is looking to steal the aging ASUS Chromebook Flip C434's section of the Chromebook market, targeting users looking for power without blowing their budget out of the water. Even the lower-end configurations are plenty powerful for the average workload, and there are options for up to 16GB of RAM and up to 256GB SSD storage if you feel the need for speed.

Hands on: Acer Chromebook Spin 514 (2021) Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Acer Chromebook Spin 514 (2021) has seen a boosted performance thanks to AMD's new chip, making this a seemingly great all-rounder ChromeOS laptop at a very attractive price point. Although there's no escaping the fact it looks a little bland compared to more expensive options.

Acer Chromebook Spin 514 (2021, AMD) initial review: Versatility is its charm
Source: Pocket Lint English
If you're looking for a mid-range Chromebook with certainty that it'll last the duration then the Acer Chromebook Spin 514 - as the first one with an AMD Ryzen processor on board - is a good bet. It's well made, fairly priced, has ample ports and power, plus that 360-degree hinge for added versatility. Sure, Google's Chrome OS has its limitations, but for office-heavy digital workloads it could be the ideal companion.

14.00":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 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.
