71% Acer Spin 5: The 2-in-1 for the budget conscious
Source: KL Gadget Guy English
The biggest selling point of the Acer Spin 5 lies in its selling price. With a starting price of RM2,199, the Spin 5 is one of the more affordable 2-in-1s that you can get your hands on at this point in time. Apart from that though, the Spin 5 is a 2-in-1 that doesn't really have anything special going for it.

Acer Spin 5 SP513-51-57J

Acer’s latest ultrabook i.e. the Spin 5 is a full HD convertible laptop. It features Acer’s patented dual-torque 360° hinge that lets users transform it into 4 useful modes by 'spinning' it into position. This affords users the flexibility to switch between different working modes be it tablet or laptop. This ultrabook sports a slim profile with metal cover and a fashionable cross-hairline brush finish. Apart from its metal lid, its body is largely made of plastic. This convertible’s dimensions measure at 9 x 12.94 x 0.78 in with a weight of 3.53lbs. It is generally lightweight; yet, it may not be comfortable for prolonged usage while standing up. Display-wise, the Spin 5 is 13.3 inch touch display with Full HD resolution and Acer Color Intelligence technology. Visuals and images appear rich and vivid. With the IPS technology, brilliant color and full viewing experience remain consistent from any perspective. The 10-point touch screen is fast and responsive. In terms of performance, the Spin 5 is powered by the 6th gen Intel Core i3 processor 2.3GHz with 8GB DDR4 single channel memory. Working performance on this device stays fast and applications launch without issues. However, running heavier tasks on that i3 processor will affect its performance.
Storage available is 128GB SSD and it is expandable via a SD card. Equipped with the latest 802.11ac and MU-MIMO, users are assured of wireless connectivity at blazing speed. Sound quality is equally impressive as it is boosted with Acer TrueHarmony. The keyboard bundled together is backlit for use under dim environments - something that many manufacturers fail to include. Typing on it is also a surprising thing. You'd expect a detachable keyboard to be sort of hard to type on but it is not. It is far better than some laptops with a permanent keyboard. The precision touchpad with multi-touch control is wide and supports the new Windows 10 features: Cortana, Multitasking and Action Center. The webcam mounted on board boasts full HD quality which makes Skype-ing on this laptop a pleasurable experience. Connectivity on this device includes one USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 2.0 ports and 1 HDMI port with HDCP support. It will be nice to have a fingerprint sensor included as well. The Spin 5 may be thin yet its battery life is capable of up to 10 hours. This assures users of longer productivity without any worries of being unplugged. It also comes pre-installed with Windows 10. Early reviews indicate a favourable response from users on the Spin 5 and it also achieves high ratings. Overall, its strong performance coupled with its low price factor will appeal those looking for a laptop of good value and quality.

If you're in the US, you can grab the Acer Spin 5 at a great price right now: at $499 for the entry-level model it's highly competitive for this sort of laptop; at the time of writing you'll even find the 256GB SSD version for that price. It's a bargain.

Depending on the retailer you head to, the Acer Spin 5 will cost around R11 999, based on the internal processor setup. Given the solid pricing of this notebook, we'd advise going for the top of the range i7 model. If you do, you'll be getting a very handy notebook indeed.

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.

Acer Spin 5 SP513-52N-54SF

The Acer Spin 5 SP513-52N-54SF has a lot to offer, including a fast SSD, a backlit keyboard, and a powerful quad-core ULV processor. The ultra-slim and super light Spin 5 convertible laptop functions like a traditional laptop but with the hands-on, tactile user experience of a tablet. A user can just rotate the revolutionary 360° Dual-Torque Hinge and watch this handy machine convert right in front of their eyes into a laptop, display, tent or tablet. Acer has equipped the Spin 5 with an Intel Core i5-8250U (Kaby Lake Refresh) quad-core processor. This is one of the energy-conserving ULV models. The processor runs at a base clock speed of 1.6 GHz. Its Turbo can increase the speed to up to 3.4 GHz. Thanks to the convertible laptop's fast 256 GB SSD and powerful processor, the system's behavior is smooth and stable.  Intel's UHD Graphics 620 graphics core is responsible for the laptop's graphics output. This card supports DirectX 12 and runs at speeds of up to 1,100 MHz. The Spin 5 can run some games smoothly. This is primarily true of games that do not demand too much from the hardware. The Spin 5's 13.3-inch touchscreen display has a native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The Spin 5's capacitive touchscreen supports 10 touch points. It gave no trouble and reacted to input immediately. It can be operated with fingers or with an active stylus which is available from Acer separately. The IPS panel that Acer has selected for the Spin 5 has stable viewing angles, allowing the user to view the screen content from any position. The convertible laptop can be used outdoors, as long as the sun is not shining too brightly. In addition to the display's low brightness, its glossy surface is a further disadvantage in outdoor use. The Spin 5's case is made of aluminum in the color steel gray. The device proves to be well-manufactured. The case's stability is mostly flawless, although the base unit could be a little more rigid. The stereo speakers are positioned above the keyboard, underneath a perforated covering. It is possible to enjoy audio content generated by the speakers over an extended period of time. Acer has also installed a full-fledged memory card reader that accepts SD cards. Acer has made significant updates to the Spin 5's array of ports. The SP513-52N is equipped with an HDMI connection and three USB Type-A ports (2x USB 3.1 Gen 1, 1x USB 2.0). The laptop also boasts a Type-C port (USB 3.1 Gen 1) that supports DisplayPort over USB-C. Using an adapter that can be purchased separately, this technology enables the Type-C port to function as a second video output. The Type-C port can also be used to charge the battery.

All up, the Acer Spin 5 SP513-52N isn’t best in class, but is very competent in all areas. It’s well built, but a little heavy. The keyboard, trackpad and screen are great but not the best in the market. The tablet functionality works, but is obviously not as smooth as a Microsoft Surface. If the Acer Spin 5 was to be summed up in a word, it would simply be “good”.

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.

Acer Spin 5 (SP513-52) review – stylish companion with underperforming hardware
Source: Laptop Mag English
The diversity of laptop models on the market gets greater and greater. One can find standard notebooks, convertibles, laptops with a touch screen, and others. In this harsh market, every manufacturer has a different card up their sleeve. Acer can definitely use the screen of today’s device to their advantage. Its 96% coverage of the sRGB color gamut, combined with good color accuracy, especially with our profiles, is a good plus. In addition to that, the Spin 5 (SP513-52) comes with an adequate touchscreen which with the help of the adaptive stylus can be a deal maker. It’s cheaper than the Swift 5 (SF514-52) and it beats it in the screen department, whilst having the same hardware as the latter.

Acer Spin 5 SP513-52N-5210

In my opinion, if I am tight on budget my go to brand for laptops would be Acer. The reason is, when you don't have the money, all you care about is functionality and not looks or weight. Acer almost always delivers this. I mean it almost feels like you get the hardware yourself, tied up together and put in a case made of cheap plastic by a professional. But with this model surprisingly Acer provided a full metal case. But metal does not always mean a solid design. Anyways, Acer Spin 5 series are convertibles. With 16 mm thickness, it is thin compared to other brands such as Asus or HP. It comes with DDR4 RAM whereas most of Asus laptops still come with DDR3. What it lacks is not the performance, but the connections so to speak of. It does unfortunately not have any Thunderbolt 3 or USB 3.1. The screen is reflective. With around 1.6 kg, it is not light. For a convertible, in order to be able to use it in tablet mode, you should be able to hold in for a long periods, right? I am not going to be too criticizing about it, because most convertibles have this issue. Then I beg the question of why convertibles? Asus Flipbook S series have some models that only weighs around 1 kg. If I had the money, I would go for them for example. But today, I am playing the scenario where I am tight on budget and I want a convertible. Pretty clear instructions. Would I buy the Acer Spin 5? Well, with its price tag, it competes with the Asus Vivobook Flip, HP Pavilion 14 x360, Lenovo Yoga 520. All are entry models in this segment. Their prices are close to each other. Even their specs are almost alike. Now it is left to decide which one tastes better. You would be surprised to read this, but Acer beats the competition in this entry level convertible segment my friends. It has better battery life, better calibrated screen and more. In terms of connectivity it may stay behind the line, but overall performance is what matters. The entry segment is where Acer shines most of the time. This is what happened in this showdown as well. This model is above 800 Euros which could be considered as a fair price for a usable convertible. I would have liked to have a pen, but beggars cannot be choosers. If you are tight on budget go for the Acer Spin 5 SKU which suits your needs. But if you have the chance to save up more, just know this, you will have more and better options.

60% Acer Spin 5 review: What it's like to have Amazon Alexa in a laptop
Source: PC World English
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 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.

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.
