As we can see in the first reviews shared by Android Central, Android Authority Y Chrome Unboxed, we will find the same aesthetic design that we are used to seeing among these Chromebooks, with a laptop of quite reduced dimensions and weight built around a 13.3-inch IPS touch screen with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution, attached to her body by one hinge with 360 degree movement, thus adding a use of convertible that will allow us to use the computer in tablet mode, under a fairly manageable weight of just 1.18 kilograms.

Inside, in addition to the already advanced Snapdragon 7c, we can also find a basic configuration with 4 GB of LPDDR4x memory and 64 GB of eMMC storage, and a fairly simplified connectivity section with wireless support for WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0, and the presence of two USB-C ports, three USB-A ports, and a headphone jack.

However, all the analyzes highlight a major flaw when running Android or Linux applications, as well as when using one or more external monitors, with a noticeably affected performance.

However, everything indicates that Acer plans to expand its Chromebook line in the near future, to which it could add new models with up to 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, expanded connectivity with more USB ports, or the most interesting availability of a model with optional support for 4G LTE wireless networks, something at the moment quite rare among the current generation Chromebooks.

Availability and price

Curiously, currently we can only find one of the intermediate versions of the new Acer Chromebook Spin 513 on the official website of the brand, although we should be able to find their cheapest models available in the next few weeks. Thus, in the absence of confirmation of the price of its most basic model, the models with 8 and 64 GB have been presented under figures between 469 and 499 euros, auguring one of the tightest prices in the market.
