Acer Spin 7 review

 

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: This convertible laptop isn't flashy or fast, but it does the job.

 

Acer's Spin 7 convertible laptop isn't flashy or fast, but it does the job.

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: 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

Not working up to potential

Acer Spin 7 SP714-51-M09D Convertible Review

 

Ultra thin, ultra quiet. Acer's 14-inch system with a thickness of just 11 millimeters certainly looks nice. However, the stability reaches its limits, although the maintainability is great in return. The Kaby Lake ULV is no performance miracle, and it...

compact and light tablet format, good application performance, good ClickPad, high contrast, very good colors after calibration, very good maintainability

only Type-C port, display via Acer Type-C Dock, for example, base could be a bit sturdier, thin speaker sound, very bad colors ex-works, weak keyboard, poor webcam quality

It is an ambitious concept, but the devil is in the details. Acer's Spin 7 (without "Aspire") is a new series consisting of ultra-thin 360-degree convertibles. We reviewed the 14-inch model SP714-51-M09D, which had a bit of a shaky start with the Kaby...

Acer Spin 7 Review and Ratings

 

Competing 2-in-1 models have better battery life, but the super-thin Spin 7 boasts outstanding build quality, a very comfortable keyboard, and a fanless design.

Sturdy metal chassis ; Stellar keyboard ; Fanless design

Brief battery life ; Coated screen makes it a little top-heavy ; No keyboard backlighting

If Acer managed to pack a larger battery (something, say, in the six-cell range) into the Spin 7, then we might be talking about an Editors’ Choice award. And that's even if a larger battery meant the chassis needed to be a few millimeters thicker,...

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...
