Acer Spin 3 (SP314-54N) review – Spin 5’s little brother is a good device but has its drawbacks
Source: Laptop Media English
Not in the last place, there is an integrated stylus. It works like a charm, and the magnets that hold the laptop in tablet mode result in a very stable work. Our only complaint would be the way you access the stylus – you need to lift the laptop if it is in conventional mode or open it up if it’s in tablet mode.

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.

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.

Acer Spin 3 review: A solid $650 budget laptop with nice bonuses
Source: Good Gear Guide English
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.

84.2% Acer Spin 3 SP314: Stylish convertible convinces in review | Notebookcheck
The Acer Spin 3 convertible is half laptop, half tablet. Is the device a lazy compromise in both categories, or is the compact 14-inch device a cheap deal with its Intel Core i5-1035G4 and Iris Plus Graphics G4 paired with 8 GB of RAM at around 800 Euros (~$954)?

 

Comment

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.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Intel Iris Plus Graphics G4 (Ice Lake 48 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 48 of the 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel produced.
