Reviews for the Acer Spin 3 SP314-54N-53GH

70% Acer Spin 3 2020 review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Acer Spin 3 is a 2-in-1 laptop that struggles to overcome mediocrity — standing out of the crowd is not its forte. The Spin 3 doesn’t have the best benchmark scores, but it’s adequate enough for students and casual creators seeking a decent productivity machine.

80% Acer Spin 3 SP314-54N 2020 review – budget convertible with Wacom AES pen
Source: Ultrabook Review English
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.

Acer Spin 3 (2020) initial review: Versatile without costing a fortune
Source: Pocket Lint English
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.
