Acer Spin 7

 

Acer has completely overhauled the naming scheme for its high-end laptops, replacing the old Aspire brand with new Spin and Swift ranges. The Swift brand takes on conventional thin-and-light Ultrabooks, while the Spin series goes for 2-in-1s with...

Acer Spin 7 preview: Flexible design with a touch of class

 

The convertible laptop game has gone from strength to strength, with the latest devices sporting slender bodies and discrete hinge mechanisms that make such flip-around screen devices as good-looking as their top-end notebook cousins.

Acer Spin 7 review

 

It's more like a flip than a spin, but by no means a flop

Cozy keyboard ; Classy design ; Two USB-C ports

Trackpad requires too much force ; Poor speaker placement ; Goofy power brick ; Somewhat short battery life

Acer’s first go at crafting the thinnest convertible in the world is held back by the world’s most antiquated trackpad and charger, but it makes up for it with a satisfying keyboard, the ideal amount of USB-C ports and a subtle design that works in its...

Acer Spin 7 review: A sleek and stylish 2-in-1

 

Not a terrible laptop but it's mediocre in too many ways to recommend

Very thin ; Fanless design ; Excellent ergonomics

Poor battery life ; Sluggish performance ; Slow transition between tablet and desktop modes

At £1,200 it isn’t cheap and if you’re willing to spend that much on a laptop, I’d opt for any of the alternatives: Microsoft Surface Pro 4 with Type Cover, Huawei MateBook X, HP EliteBook x360 G2 or even the extremely impressive Acer Switch 5.

Acer Spin 7 review

 

There's nothing flashy or exciting about the Acer Spin 7 convertible laptop; it's also a lot slower than competitors and doesn't support a stylus for Windows Ink. Yet I found myself liking it quite a bit as a general-purpose system.

The Acer Spin 7's a well-designed laptop with a nice touchscreen and sturdy 360-degree hinge, pretty good sound and a smoothly operating keyboard and touchpad.

Its performance doesn't match similarly equipped and priced competitors and there's no stylus support for Windows Ink.

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

Acer Spin 7 review

 

Acer's razor-thin convertible takes on the Surface Pro 4

Incredibly slim; Attractive design; Nice keyboard and trackpad;

High price; Lacklustre performance; Poor quality hinge; No keyboard backlighting;

While there’s a lot to like about this device, it’s also dogged with compromise. It’s hampered by poor performance, a high price tag, and questionable design choices - an unfortunate combination that means you’re better off looking elsewhere.

Buy the Spin 7 if you want the thinnest Windows 10 2-in-1 around – but not if you want the fastest.

Acer Spin 7 review: underachiever

 

When you first pick up and open the Acer Spin 7 laptop, you're probably going to be pleasantly surprised. This very thin, well-designed laptop doesn't try to wow you with its design — instead it's...

Handsome design ; Thin, light ; Fanless

Battery life ; Trackpad palm rejection ; No keyboard backlight
