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.

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.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
