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.

Solid performance; Decent audio; Comfy keyboard ; Cumbersome design; Dim display; Below-average battery life ; The Acer Chromebook Spin 11 CP311 packs solid hardware into a compact design, but it isn't a comfortably designed 2-in-1 laptop.

Acer Chromebook Spin 311 (CP311-2H) review – does Chrome OS stand up to the challenge

 

A couple of years back, Chromebooks were an interesting new prospect. They were meant for students, children, and most people, who are not in need of a powerful machine that requires an expensive W…

Snappy experience;The OS loads in an instant;Two USB Type-C ports that charge the laptop and can output DisplayPort;Its display has comfortable viewing angles and good contrast ratio (AUO145C);Doesn’t use PWM to adjust screen brightness...

A bit on the large side for an 11-inch notebook;Covers only 58% of sRGB (AUO145C);Memory and storage are soldered to the motherboard;Feels clunky and dated because of its fat bezels

Acer Chromebook Spin 11

 

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

 

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.
