Acer Spin 3 (2018) review: In a sea of $500 convertibles, the Spin 3 comes up short

 

With so many solid $500 convertibles available, the Acer Spin 3 comes up short in battery life and performance.

A solid set of components, including a 1TB hard drive. The decent complement of ports and connections. The crisp 14-inch display is a pleasure to use in laptop and tablet mode.

Flimsy design. Subpar performance and battery life. Keyboard and touchpad aren’t great.

In the ultracompetitive market of midrange convertibles, the Acer Spin 3 fails to stand out.

Acer Spin 3 (With Amazon Alexa)

 

Now armed with Alexa, Acer's Spin 3 convertible is a reasonable value, but its bulky bezels, lack of USB Type-C, and middling typing experience make it a merely average 2-in-1, the Amazon angle aside.

Alexa integration. Punchy performance for the price. Elegant, 360-degree-rotating 1080p touch display.

Thick bezels. No USB Type-C ports. Poor webcam quality. Shallow, non-backlit keyboard. No support for Wake on Voice (WoV). Hefty for a 2-in-1.

Bottom Line: Now armed with Alexa, Acer's Spin 3 convertible is a reasonable value, but its bulky bezels, lack of USB Type-C, and middling typing experience make it a merely average 2-in-1, the Amazon angle aside.

Acer Spin 3 (SP314-51-38XK)

 

The Acer Spin 3 is a 14-inch convertible laptop that hits the $500 price point, but for performance's sake we'd spend an extra $100 to upgrade the memory and storage.

Handsome touch screen. Nice sound. Good battery life.

Sluggish hard drive instead of SSD. No USB-C port.

Bottom Line: The Acer Spin 3 is a 14-inch convertible laptop that hits the $500 price point, but for performance's sake we'd spend an extra $100 to upgrade the memory and storage.

Long battery life; Good performance; Decent speakers; Stays cool ; Dull display; Plastic build; Tons of bloatware ; Finally, an affordable 14-inch 2-in-1 that's worth buying.

Acer Spin 3 review: A decent laptop hybrid with a nice screen

 

The Acer Spin 3 joins a lineup of other laptops on the market trying to take full advantage of Windows 10's touch interface, read the full review inside!

The Acer Spin 3 is heavy but has a robust build. Viewing angles and glare need improving, and the amount of bloatware preinstalled is off the charts. This is a good laptop for the average user but power users and the tech minded crowd may want to look...

Acer Spin 3 review

 

Inexpensive only gets you so much

Affordable ; Responsive touchscreen ; Healthy offering of ports

Touchpad is lacking ; It’s a bit bulky ; Middling performance for price

The Acer Spin 3 is affordable and can get the job done, but only if you have a few minutes to spare. Middling performance and subpar trackpad hardware mar an otherwise decent general use, 2-in-1 laptop.
