Acer’s new Chromebook Spin 13 is a premium convertible device featuring a stunning screen, top-notch performance and a durable design.
The Chromebook Spin 13 is a convertible device with a 360° hinge, allowing you to easily switch between 4 usage modes depending on your needs – you can use it in laptop mode on a table or desk, share your screen with a colleague in display mode, get some work done in the confines of a train or plane using tent mode, or use it as a tablet when on your feet.
With a premium metal body, the Chromebook Spin 13 has a reassuring, solid feel in the hand – yet measures just 16.9mm thick and weighs a mere 1.37kg.
The Spin 13’s chassis has another trick up its sleeve too. Fully certified to meet US Military standard MIL-STD 810H, the Spin 13 has been tested to survive drops, knocks, spills and other mishaps – so you have peace of mind when taking it out of the office.
The Chromebook Spin 13’s 13.5” VertiView touchscreen has a range of features that elevate you viewing experience – the 3:2 aspect ratio gives you 18% more viewing height compared to conventional 16:9 screens, helping documents and web pages fit better, while the 2256×1506 Quad HD resolution ensures that everything on screen is pin-sharp and the IPS panel provides rich, true-to-life colours and wide viewing angles.
With one of Intel’s latest 11th gen Core i3 CPUs at its heart, the Chromebook Spin 13 can easily handle anything you throw at it, while the 8GB of RAM allows you to multi-task with ease. You also get a 256GB SSD, which not only gives you plenty of storage for all your apps and files, it also ensures that performance is lightning-fast.
Even with such a powerful processor the Spin 13 manage to last up-to 10 hours on a single charge, meaning it can last the entire work day and beyond.
As a Chromebook, the Spin 13 runs Chrome OS. Chrome OS was designed to meet the needs of everyday users and it achieves this by focusing on three key pillars – speed, simplicity and security.
Chrome OS boots up in seconds and it doesn’t slow down over time, meaning your Chromebook won’t start feeling sluggish after a few months. It also strips back all the unnecessary technical features of an operating system that most people don’t want, instead focusing on a clean, intuitive interface. And finally security – every app on the Google Play Store is screened for viruses before you can download it, so you have complete peace of mind that you and your data are being kept safe.
The Chromebook Spin 13 is an ideal choice for anyone who needs to work on the move, marrying powerful performance, a spectacular screen and the convenience of its convertible form factor with a premium and rugged body that will survive any day-to-day mishaps you might encounter.
