Acer continues to expand its ever growing lineup of laptops, tablets and convertibles, this time with the Acer Spin 1 (2017) model. This is a convertible with an Apollo Lake processor inside and sold from July. The price is going to be $445.
This 11.6 inch Full HD device has an elegant metal shell and will let you choose between Intel Celeron and Pentium chipsets. It’s a pretty light machine, that comes with Windows Ink support, via Active stylus. Acer Spin 1 (2017) weighs 1.25 kg and measures 14 mm in thickness. It packs 4 GB of DDR3L RAM and your choice of 32, 64 or 128 GB of storage.
The screen panel is an IPS and offers 178 degree view angles. The battery on board offers 8 hours of usage, in multiple use modes: tent, notebook and tablet. Acer Spin 1 has a Precision Touchpad, that supports special control gestures and god tracking. On the connectivity front, there’s WiFi 802.11ac 2×2, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.1, an USB 2.0 port and a HDMI.
We’ve also got a microSD (SDC) and other tech on board includes Acer BlueLightShield, which protects your eyes and Acer TrueHarmony for excellent acoustics. A HD webcam rounds up the list. The July debut applies to the EMEA region and we are supposed to see this model at Computex next week.
