The upgrades for the new Spin 3 14-inch convertibles include an almost complete Intel Whiskey Lake CPU lineup ranging from the Pentium Gold 5405U to the Core i7-8565U, plus discrete graphics solutions up to the new GeForce MX230 GPUs. Standard RAM capacity is 8 GB, but users can add up to 24 GB, and the new notebooks come with up to 512 GB NVMe + up to 1 TB HDD storage combos.

Acer’s affordable Spin 3 lineup of convertible notebooks is set to get a spec update this summer. The most notable upgrades include an almost complete Intel Whiskey Lake CPU family and discrete graphics up to the new GeForce MX230 GPU from Nvidia.

The 2-in-1 notebooks from the new Spin 3 lineup come with a 14-inch HD touchscreen that can be flipped 360 degrees via the special hinge and they include a stylus, which has a special storage compartment on the side. Unfortunately, the new upgrades make the convertibles a bit bulkier, as all Spin 3 models now have a 0.8-inch thickness and weigh around 3.74 lbs.

Users can choose to add up to 24 GB of DDR4 RAM, with a minimum of 8 GB. As far as storage is concerned, users may combine 128 / 256 / 512 GB NVMe SSDs with 500 GB / 1 TB HDDs. Besides the top of the line i7-8565U CPU, users can also opt for an i5-8265U, an i3-8145U, or the budget Pentium Gold 5405U CPU. Other standard features include stereo speakers, dual-band Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 5.0, HDMI out, SD card reader, 2 x USB-A ports and an audio jack.

Acer plans to release the new Spin 3 models this June, with prices starting at US$500.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
