Acer Spin 1
The new Spin 1 convertible comes with a slimmer, lighter, and sturdier design than its predecessor, featuring Intel Celeron and Pentium processor options, up to 128 GB internal storage, and 4 GB RAM.

Acer has just announced a new Spin convertible that features an 11.6-inch full HD IPS display and multiple hardware choices. Although this is an affordable family of devices with Apollo Lake processors and eMMC storage, the Spin 1 has a metal body and offers Windows Ink support via an Acer Active Stylus.

The new Acer Spin weighs 2.76 pounds, and its chassis is 0.55 inches thick. The list of processor options will include Pentium and Celeron chips, thus being able to easily provide up to eight hours of battery life. All models will come with 4 GB DDR3L memory, but there are three storage options planned to hit the market - 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB. The list of connectivity options includes WiFi, Bluetooth, USB 3.1, USB 2.0, HDMI, and more.

The prices start at $329 USD, but the Acer Active Stylus is not bundled with the convertible. According to the official press release, North America will get the new Spin in July. The EMEA region will follow one month later, with prices starting at €399 EUR.
