Acer Spin 1 convertible with Active Stylus support and Intel Celeron/Pentium processor options
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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
