Reviews for the Acer Spin 5 SP513-52N-85LZ

The Acer Spin 5 is a decent laptop that's worth considering for its good selection of features for the price, especially when it comes to connectivity and the quality of the keyboard and trackpad. On the downside you get merely average performance for the specs, an overly loud and uncomfortably warm fan, and a somewhat outdated design. Just don't factor Alexa into your purchase decision either way.

The Acer Spin 5 is a decent laptop.

On the downside you get merely average performance for the specs, an overly loud and uncomfortably warm fan, and a somewhat outdated design. The Alexa integration is interesting and wouldn't hurt if you were already deeply committed to the Amazon ecosystem, but it's a minor selling point.
