Reviews for the Acer Spin 5 SP513-54N-79EY
With the new Acer Spin 5 SP513, the manufacturer optimizes the 13.5-inch model of the versatile convertible. With Intel Ice Lake, the hardware has improved considerably and there are additional improvements. So has Acer created a convincing overall package here, or are there still some old or even new weaknesses? In addition, the Intel convertible also has to compete with a new AMD heavyweight.
The Acer Spin 5 is an excellent 2-in-1 laptop that provides great performance, excellent battery life, and a 3:2 HD IPS display that's as close to a real notebook as you're going to get with a 2-in-1.

The Acer Spin 5 is undoubtedly a powerful hybrid machine — it blew its fellow 2-in-1 competitors out of the water when it comes to display quality, overall performance and graphics. And despite being a thin-and-light convertible, the Spin 5 manages to offer an abundance of ports to fulfill all your connection needs. The Acer laptop even has a microSD reader, a convenient feature for content creators that seems to be growing more obsolete among laptops.

So, despite the unimpressive keyboard, we feel that the laptop delivers on what it promises. In fact, it is able to stand against the HP Spectre x360 13 (13-aw0000), which is significantly more expensive in some regions, and with the baller stylus with its Wacom technology, you will feel like a pro, without owning a “Pro”-branded product.
