At first glance this is a very attractive laptop, but the design and performance aren’t quite what we’d want for this money.

The Acer Spin 7 gets an awful lot right; it's lovely to look at, the trackpad is a joy to use, and it's one of the thinnest convertibles we've ever seen. However, it's a machine that is built on compromise, which ultimately proves to be its downfall.

We can’t deny how lightweight and configurable this convertible is… and yet it’s not quite as spiffy nor good value as some of the competition. However, the fact that it’s able to operate in several modes means you get a lot more options for the higher price.

As assembled, the Acer Spin 7 is best as a versatile system for home or commuter use, where you won’t stray too far, for too long, from a wall outlet and will use it more for entertainment pursuits than serious graphics work. But business buyers with a deep budget for a vanity machine might look at it, too. It will impress clients, and garner envious looks on your airline tray table—at least, unless the passenger next to you pulls out a Lenovo Yoga 910.

80% Acer Spin 7 review: It has the looks
Source: Gadget Show English
All in all, the Acer Spin 7 a fairly good 2-in-1 that works well both as a laptop and a tablet. At a price of Rs 1,09,900, we think it's a pretty good deal. But just in case you're looking for alternatives in a similar price range, you can go for Acer's own Swift 7 or the HP Spectre.

The Acer Spin 7 won't win any awards for performance or features, but its functional design and operation may win your heart.

There’s a lot to like about the Spin 7: it’s thin and stupendously light while offering up a nice, big screen. Many users will be fine with the middling performance, too. However, the battery life isn’t as long as I expected and there are a couple of issues with the build quality.

In the end, the Acer Spin 7 isn't too shabby. It is the thinnest convertible-hybrid laptop we've seen so far, it looks good, and it has adequate power to do tasks while still lasting quite a while on battery power. But our Editors' Choice Lenovo Yoga 910 does it all better, and for $50 less. Keep the Spin 7 on your short list, especially if you dig the ultrathin chassis, but the Yoga 910 is a sexier (and longer-lasting) choice, even if it is a touch heavier.

Intel HD Graphics 615: Integrated graphics card in some Kaby Lake Y-series processors (4.5 Watt TDP) with 24 EUs (GT2) and no dedicated graphics memory. Clocks with Update to 1050 MHz depending on the CPU Model. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
7Y75: Extremely efficient ULV-SoC (System-on-a-Chip) for tablets and fanless notebooks based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Includes two CPU cores clocked at 1.3-3.6 GHz with Hyper Threading support as well as a graphics adapter and is manufactured in a 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.3 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


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.


74.9%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
