Reviews for the Acer Spin 1 SP111-31-P40B

70% Acer Spin 1 review: Suitable for routine tasks
Source: Gadget Show English
Acer Spin 1 is a really good looking and compact device. If you are not much into gaming and want a simple device for your routine daily work then you can definitely go for this one. Priced at Rs 30,999, it is a good buy. The device is convertible and also has a brand value attached to it and is better than the recently launched iBall CompBook Aer3, which falls under the same price segment and offers much less when compared to the Acer Spin 1.

The Acer Spin 1 has a combination of features that you might not get in any other laptop in the same price range. It compromises on performance and overall build quality, delivers with an impressive screen and MS Office pre-installed. It’s a laptop worth considering.

Hands on: Acer Spin 1 review
Source: Techradar English
The Acer Spin 1 might be priced like a budget laptop, but it hardly feels like one with an all metal build and Full HD screen. It’s just a shame it doesn’t pack more power.

The Acer Spin 1 is a little slow and basic, but the folding touchscreen design, decent screen and battery life, and rock-bottom price make it the ideal travel companion or secondary laptop.

Intel HD Graphics 505: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Apollo Lake series. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
N4200: Low power quad-core SoC from the Apollo Lake series for inexpensive notebook. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.5 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter. Compared to the previous Atom generation, the per-MHz performance of the CPU architecture was vastly improved and the graphics adapter was improved as well.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
11.6":

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.

1.5 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.


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
