Model: The Acer Spin 1 SP111-32N-P9VD is a convenient convertible laptop. The Spin 1 is a great convertible at a fair price, for those who are looking for an office work tool or a device for using streaming services. With four modes to choose from, namely laptop, tablet, display or tent, finding the right fit for every need has never been easier. With 1.2 kilograms, a height of 15 millimeters and a simulated office operation of more than 10 hours, the Spin 1 also grabs the mobility crown. For the current convertible, the hardware is in an elegant and high-quality aluminum chassis. With a little effort, a user can open the display and lock it in the desired function. The display holds the position astonishingly well in every position, which is an advantage because the hinge is usually a known weak point in convertibles. Despite the metal case, the Acer Spin 1 is still sturdy in the hand in tablet mode. Power and volume buttons are located on the right side edge. Despite the narrow 1.41 inch (3.58 cm) high case, the keyboard offers a good stroke with a pleasant crisp writing. The Precision Touchpad is more responsive than traditional touchpads helping user work more effectively. However, the mouse replacement could be a touch smoother. But, thanks to the touchscreen, the touchpad plays a minor role. For creative possibilities, the convertible relies on the Acer Active Pen and Windows Ink to take full advantage of the touch display. The Acer Active Stylus enables accurate and direct on-screen digital ink input providing a natural pen-on-paper experience.

The Acer Spin 1 brain is an Intel Pentium N4200 processor, which tackles up to 1.1 GHz and is supported by a 4 GB of RAM. Although this is not a lot of RAM, the performance is good enough for office applications and non-demanding games like Hearthstone, which makes it even more intuitive to play with touch displays. However, using it for more demanding tasks such as video editing is not an option, because neither the processor nor the RAM is sufficient. As for storage, it has only 64 GB of internal flash memory, which is very little. Applications can eat up a lot of capacity and error during a system reset could occur because Windows does not have enough memory for the process. With an 11-inch IPS screen in Full HD, users can enjoy display with rich and crystal clarity. Since it is an IPS display, it is easily viewable clearly at angles of up to 178° while maintaining the same level of high-quality color. The touchscreen also supports 10-point touch input with integrated sensor technology. Hence, it can recognize multiple touch gestures providing easier navigation and interaction. The built-in HDMI port also makes it easy to connect an external monitor or TV. For connectivity, the Acer convertible comes with Bluetooth and a WLAN 2x2 802.11ac module. The Acer Spin 1 SP111-32N-P9VD will best suite light home users. It does well on the media end but performs below average on the multitasking end.

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.

1.25 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.


88%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
