Reviews for the Acer Spin 5 SP515-51N
Source: Trusted Reviews
Despite its lack of dedicated graphics and its bulky build, the Spin 5 has a lot to offer. The flexible design helps it to stand out from the crowd, while the typing experience is also solid. Sadly, the lack of colour accuracy and limited portability mean it isn’t a good fit for mobile professionals.

The 2018 Spin 5 is very much a case of Acer doing what it does best. Without excelling in any one area, the reviewed 15.6in model ticks plenty of relevant boxes and packs impressive performance into a sleek and well-priced machine.
