Reviews for the Acer Chromebook Spin 713 CP713-3W-503Z

Overall, the Acer Chromebook Spin 713 (CP713-3W-503Z) offers excellent performance for a Chromebook laptop. While some apps and games won’t run, the laptop delivers in both productivity and entertainment very well. However, with its price tag from RM3799, it is in direct contention with other entry-level to midrange laptops so this laptop is probably only for you if you have good all-round Internet connectivity and like to work with Google’s Chrome OS. If you’re a Windows user, the learning curve may be a bit too demanding or your usual apps may not work the way they used to, even if the Spin 713’s tech specs beat out the hardware of most Windows or Chromebook laptops in this price range. Like most Chromebooks and other Android run devices, how well you work depends a lot more on the apps you’re using than the actual hardware. While the hardware on the Spin 713 does ensure smooth performance, you’re still going to lose out on certain features, for example for Photo and video editing or other applications that traditionally run on a PC.

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.
