The Acer Spin 5 is a hybrid for the masses. It has a large screen but is not excessively heavy, is made of metal but is not intimidatingly expensive. And when not using its hybrid side it feels just like a normal laptop.

Acer's 13.3-inch Spin 5 is a competent, albeit generic, choice for a convertible laptop. Battery life is its best feature; a few extra ounces are its worst.

The Acer Spin 5 is reasonably priced for everything it offers. It has all the features most people need and more. While the stylus isn't its biggest selling point, it's a useful tool that adds value to the convertible notebook. If it's within your budget, I'd give it serious consideration, even if the plain styling and modest screen resolution isn't particularly flashy.
