Acer Chromebook Spin 11 review

 

Acer's Chromebook Spin 11 is inexpensive, but poor performance holds it back.

Solid productivity battery life ; Wacom EMR stylus included ; Attractive price point

Sluggish performance ; Stylus lags in some apps ; Display is small and mediocre ; Underwhelming audio

The Acer Chromebook Spin 11 is a low-cost and reasonably solid Chrome OS notebook, with decent battery life and competent input options. Its performance and display were underwhelming, though, and there are better options for the same or just a bit...

Acer Chromebook Spin 11

 

The Acer Chromebook Spin 11 is an 11.6-inch convertible that offers keyboard, touch, and stylus input, runs Chrome OS and Android apps, and shrugs off knocks, drops, and water spills. It's the best chromebook we've seen for kids.

Rugged enough for school use. Wacom stylus included. Two USB-C and two USB 3.0 ports. Two cameras. Snappy keyboard.

Small, low-res screen. Easy-to-lose stylus. Imperfect Android compatibility.

Bottom Line: The Acer Chromebook Spin 11 is an 11.6-inch convertible that offers keyboard, touch, and stylus input, runs Chrome OS and Android apps, and shrugs off knocks, drops, and water spills. It's the best chromebook we've seen for kids.

A decent 2-in-1 Chromebook, but the usual niggles remain

Versatile design ; Decent battery life ; Impressive connectivity ; Comfortable keyboard

Limited performance ; Chrome OS ; Poor-performing speakers

A 2-in-1 Chrome OS laptop and tablet that comes with the standard strengths and weaknesses a Chromebook offers.

Acer Chromebook Spin 311 review: Brilliant for the basics

 

Looking for a budget laptop? Some aspects of the 311 look dated, but at this price point it's hard to complain about its overall well considered spec.

A good-looking and comfortable-to-use keyboard ; Solid battery life ; Its IPS screen may not be fancy - but still looks quite good ; Well-made flexi hinge and rugged body

XL-size screen borders ; Can’t handle some of Android’s most popular games ; Flawed touchpad construction

It's in this budget price bracket that Chrome OS's particular appeals shine through. Sure, the Spin 311 isn't incredibly slim and can't run proper Windows apps, but it's got a great keyboard, lasts for ample time, and delivers enough across the board...

Acer Chromebook Spin 311 review

 

The Acer Chromebook Spin 311 is a solidly-performing Chromebook that is a great all-round performer

Great design and build Lovely size Excellent touch screen and flip mechanism

Dim screen Massive bezels drastically reduce actual screen size

The Acer Chromebook Spin 311's versatility makes it a great all rounder supported by good battery life and great interactivity.

Acer Chromebook Spin 11 (2017) review

 

A ruggedized Chromebook, and that's about it

Rugged design will take a beating ; Long battery life ; Lots of ports

Overall design is unimpressive ; Screen left us wanting ; Middling performance

Acer’s Chromebook Spin 11 is a mid-range Chromebook with slow performance and a screen that leaves us wanting more. At this price, unless a rugged device is all you want, you might want to look elsewhere.

Consumer review (currys.co.uk)

ACER Spin 311 11.6” AMD A4 2 in 1 Chromebook - 32 GB eMMC, Black

 

Robust for Children and heavy handed users Convenient for School, home and on the move for Children and Adults. Great touchscreen to use as a tablet and at the same time as a laptop. We love the way it converts / 'Spins' to T.V. screen or tablet.

Laptop and charger can get quite hot.
