Reviews for the Acer Spin 3 SP314-54N-58Q7

70% Acer Spin 3 (2020)
Source: PC Mag English
Selling for $649.99 as tested, Acer's latest revision of its Spin 3 would be a good value even if it didn't come with a carrying sleeve and a stylus pen. This 14-inch convertible 2-in-1 laptop combines an Intel 10th Generation Core i5 CPU with an adequate 8GB of memory and 256GB solid-state drive. It's a handsome design, if at 3.3 pounds a little heavy to hold in your hands as opposed to resting in your lap in tablet mode. It performs capably, though it's no speed demon like the AMD Ryzen 5-powered Editors' Choice Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14 that it competes with. If you're looking for a flip-and-fold laptop/tablet/kiosk/easel design on a tight budget, the Spin 3 deserves a spot on your short list.

70% Acer Spin 3 review: A solid $650 budget laptop with nice bonuses
Source: PC World English
For a budget laptop that’s largely middle-of-the-road, the Acer Spin 3 still manages to stand out because of several forward-looking features. The Thunderbolt port, the integrated stylus, and the Wi-Fi 6 antenna are things you won’t find on many other models in its price range.

You do have options. You could pay $30 more to buy the Acer Swift 3 SF314-42-R9YN, which is both lighter and faster. (My gut says that AMD Ryzen 4000-powered laptops will be the budget laptop story of 2020.) Or if battery life is your priority, Lenovo’s Yoga C740-14IML excels—and it’s also more expensive. If you shop around and still end up with the Acer Spin 3, though, you shouldn’t be disappointed.

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.
