What is the Acer Chromebook Spin 13?

Acer has long been at the forefront of the emergence of Chromebooks and with the Spin 13 it’s looking to step things up a gear.

It includes an all-metal chassis, a Gorilla Glass touchpad, Intel Core processors and a flip-round touchscreen that gives it its name.

Despite all these premium features the Acer Chromebook Spin 13 is still only set to start at around $500, which is around half what you’d pay for a similarly swanky Windows machine.

Acer Chromebook Spin 13 – Design and Features

This is a great-looking laptop thanks to an all-metal exterior that gives it both a premium look and a sturdy feel.

It’s also a strangely tall laptop because Acer has opted to use a 3:2 aspect ratio screen rather than a more conventional 16:9 aspect. This is the same as the Google Pixelbook, and it makes the Chromebook Spin 13 a bit more practical to use in tablet mode.
