Reviews for the Acer Spin 3 SP314-54N-53GH
Source: Ultrabook Review
The Acer Spin 3 is competitive in its class of budget-friendly 2-in-1 laptops. It's well built and looks nice, it packs a convertible touchscreen with Wacom AES pen support, good IO on the sides, modern hardware and a pretty large battery. It's also competitively priced. However, despite all these, it's hard to recommend this in 2020, for three main reasons: poor typing experience, dim and washed out screen, and especially the fact that you'll get better value with other types of notebooks out there, such as mid-tier clamshell laptops, 2-in-1 Chromebooks or previous generation higher-tier convertibles.

If you're looking for a laptop with a 360-degree hinge that doesn't cost a fortune, the 2020 Acer Spin 3 has a lot going for it. It's not got a premium build, but it dresses itself up well given the asking price.
