60% Acer Spin 3 Review

The Acer Spin 3 has a great 1080p display and an affordable price tag, but it's held back by performance problems, an uncomfortable keyboard and subpar battery life.

60% Acer Spin 3 (SP314-51-38XK)
Source: PC Mag English
The Acer Spin 3 is a 14-inch convertible laptop that hits the $500 price point, but for performance's sake we'd spend an extra $100 to upgrade the memory and storage.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.

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.


61.67%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
