Acer Spin 3 SP313-51N convertible in review: A good all-rounder with weaknesses

Putting pressure on the competition With Tiger Lake and Thunderbolt 4, Acer brings enough power for the future in the new Spin 3 SP313. The customer decides whether he needs a tablet or a laptop with the versatile 360-degree display. Our review reveals what else the convertible can do.
Patrick Schüdzig, 👁 Sebastian Jentsch, Brian Burriston (translated by DeepL / Ninh Duy), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

Can you get a current, powerful convertible with Thunderbolt 4 and WQXGA resolution for less than 1000 Euros (~$1192)? Yes, because even budget notebooks are getting cheaper and have more performance and features. We will take a closer look at whether the Acer Spin 3 SP313-51N also meets these requirements in this review with a configuration of an Intel Core i5 1135G7, 16 GB LPDDR4X Ram and a 512 GB NVMe SSD. Does Acer have better cards than Dell and Lenovo?

Case - Robust and multifaceted with 1,400 grams

The unibody case of our convertible is made of an aluminum alloy and looks sophisticated and elegant. It is no lightweight with a weight of 1.4 kilograms (~3.1 lb), but it has room for the Wacom stylus pen, which is included in the scope of delivery, compared to the competition. Thus, the pen can be stored well and it charges automatically at the same time.

Acer has put a lot of effort into the build quality, as the base and lid feel sturdy and are difficult to twist. Only the hinges could have been better. The display can be opened with one hand and we did not notice any wobbling during operation. To prevent the Spin 3 from slipping, the device has rubber feet on the back.

The Acer Spin 3 is not particularly light, it is comparatively heavy, like the Lenovo Thinkpad L13 Yoga. In return, the Spin 3 is a bit bigger. Working with one hand quickly becomes cumbersome due to the weight.

Equipment - Acer convertible with Thunderbolt

Intel brings Thunderbolt 4 to the Acer Spin with Tiger Lake, which supports a data bandwidth of 40 Gbit/s and thus up to two 4K or one 8k display-out port. If that's not enough, there's also an HDMI 2.0b port to choose from. USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports are also present as well as a micro-SD card reader, a combo audio jack and Kensington Lock.

Thus, almost all the necessary points that one needs are covered. In addition, all ports are placed so that neighboring slots are not obstructed.

SD Card reader

The micro-SD card reader is slower than average. Thus, users who work a lot with micro-SD cards will need a lot of patience here. In our standard JPG copy tests and sequential read tests with the AV Pro microSD 128 GB V60, we recorded 14.5 MB/s and 27 MB/s, respectively.

Communication

The Acer Spin 3 SP313 does not have an Ethernet port. All networking is done via the Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i chip, which also offers Bluetooth 5.1. The WLAN tests were performed at a distance of 1 m (3.3 ft) from our Netgear Nighthawk AX12 RAX120 router without physical obstacles or other connected network devices.

The Wi-Fi performance of the Spin 3 is almost 40 percent worse than the average scores in the iperf3 send and receive test. Dell's competition scores here with the Dell XPS 13 9305.

Webcam

The 720p webcam is only suitable for everyday use to a limited extent. A muddy picture, coarse resolution and slow display are the reasons for that. Users who place a lot of value on the webcam's quality should rather go for the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s or look for an external solution.

Maintenance

There is no maintenance hatch, so you have to remove the entire bottom cover to access the components. This is done by removing all 11 screws from the back and then opening the bottom panel with a lever tool.

Only the SSD and the WLAN card can be changed.

Inside, you can see a single heat pipe that runs along the Intel Core i5 1135G7 to a fan. Other manufacturers score with more heatpipes and/or more fans here. Since the entire waste heat is dissipated to the back via the fan slots in the center, the touch display also heats up due to the poor cooling performance. Acer could have done a better job with that.

Accessories and warranty

The scope of delivery includes the notebook as well as a power adapter and the usual inserts.

Acer offers a standard warranty for the Spin 3 with a one-year return service and a one-year ITW (International Travelers Warranty).

The ITW is a travel warranty that covers service cases during stays abroad up to a maximum of 3 months in over 100 countries around the world. With the ITW, you can have a device purchased in your home country repaired free of charge in the country where you are staying for no longer than 3 months, as long as it has an Acer representative.

Warranty extensions are available on the Acer homepage, where the standard warranty and the ITW can be extended up to 4 years. Acer offers a 3-year on-site service with repair within one business day for customers who need a replacement quickly in case of a defect.

Input devices - Acer with bright keyboard

Keyboard

The keys have a matte surface that is prone to fingerprints, but it proves to be relatively non-slip. The keyboard illumination has 3 levels and the brightness is more than sufficient. What we noticed negatively is the cramped keyboard layout. The space on the sides could have been used more here. Overall, the typing experience on the Spin 3 is good for most everyday tasks, although there is no strong tactile feedback. Keystroke noise is relatively quiet and no rattling/bending under pressure could be detected during use. Those used to desktop keyboards may find the key travel too soft, but you will quickly get used to it.

Touchpad

The touchpad has a very precise response and offers enough surface area without giving you the feeling that you could accidentally reach the touchpad while typing. The trackpad also offers a clearly noticeable pressure point towards the bottom. On the top left of the touchpad is the fingerprint sensor, which can be used to unlock the device quickly and securely.

The multi-touch screen has a swift response and does not offer any reason for criticism in our opinion.

Display - WQXGA in 16:10 format

The 13.3-inch LCD display with LED backlight technology scores with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 (WQXGA) in 16:10 format and offers a multi-touch screen. The screen is only suitable for outdoor use to a limited extent because it is reflective. The illumination is uneven towards the center and offers an average brightness of 306 candelas. If you take a look at the competition, you will notice that Dell offers a much brighter screen, but you also have to make do with a Full HD resolution and worse values in terms of color space. You can see halos at the edges, but they are not visible in practice. We did not notice any PWM during use.

* ... smaller is better

With 98% coverage of the sRGB color space and 68% of AdobeRGB, the Spin 3 does not have to hide behind its rivals; on the contrary, it even achieves the best rates here. Content creation is definitely feasible with this device. The contrast ratio of 1252:1 and the black value of 0.27 also cut a good figure. Only the response times of the test device are quite poor.

Even in a bright apartment, the reflective display could already restrict the view.
Even in a bright apartment, the reflective display could already restrict the view.

The Spin 3 is only suitable for outdoor use to a limited extent. The display brightness would have to be higher for this. You should avoid direct sunlight because the display is highly reflective. Thus, it is hardly possible to use it on very bright days.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
36 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 21 ms rise
↘ 15 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 91 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
52 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 26 ms rise
↘ 26 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 85 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37.9 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 15377 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

The viewing angle stability is first-rate thanks to the IPS panel and is not limited in any way. Operation on the lap is possible without problems thanks to Acer's chosen cooling concept.

Performance - Acer meets Tiger Lake

The Acer Spin 3 SP313-51N-56YV is not only available with the Intel Core i5 1135G7 and 512 GB of memory, but also as the SP313-51N-740X version with the Intel Core i7 1165G7(Intel Iris Xe G7 iGPU with 96 EUs) and 1 TB memory. Both devices are equipped with the Intel Iris Xe G7 iGPU, which only differ in the execution units, and are suitable for all common office applications. The working memory is soldered, but with 16 GB RAM you have enough reserves for the next few years anyway.

Processor

The Intel Core i5 1135G7 installed in the test device is a quad-core processor from Intel's current Tiger Lake generation with a base clock of 2.4 GHz and a Turbo clock of up to 4.2 GHz. The performance is mostly above average. However, the benchmark starts with a relatively high score in the Cinebench R15 loop, but the processor permanently clocks over 17% lower after a short time. This problem is nothing new and is partly due to the weak cooling of the device.

We could use the processor's full performance in battery mode.

Graphics card

Acer relies on the internal Intel Iris Xe G7 iGPU with 80 EUs for the graphics solution. How strong this is depends on the installed working memory and the cooling solution. Acer has done a good job here because the Spin 3 manages to stand out from the competition in all benchmarks despite only one heat pipe that is cooled by a fan. This is probably also due to the fast LPDDR4X RAM in quad-channel mode. Nevertheless, the Acer Spin 3 is not a gaming notebook. Playing current AAA titles is not possible or only possible to a very limited extent. If you still want to play games on the device, you can connect an external display and an eGPU via the two Thunderbolt 4 ports. You should ask yourself whether this solution makes sense and consider that the full performance of the built-in graphics card cannot be accessed. In theory, Thunderbolt 4 is not the bottleneck here, but the installed processor and its cooling performance.

You can compare the performance of other graphics cards tested by us in our GPU benchmark list.

Gaming performance

The 3DMark results are impressive and are above the comparison devices. The performance in synthetic benchmarks is about 10% higher (Fire Strike) than the dedicated NVIDIA MX450. Unfortunately, the performance cannot be transferred to the practical field, where dedicated GPUs still perform better.
