Acer Spin 5 13.3″ Full HD Touchscreen 2-in-1 Laptop, SP513-52N-552K Review
Acer Spin 5 Touchscreen 2-in-1 Laptop, SP513-52N
Acer Spin 5 SP513-52N-552K is a 13.3-inch Full HD touchscreen 2-in-1 convertible laptop with an ultra thin (0.63″) and portable design with an all metal body. It has a quad core, ultra low voltage Intel i7 processor, 8GB memory, 256GB Solid State Drive, backlit keyboard, fingerprint reader, Stylus Pen, and Windows Ink. The average customer rating is 4.1 out of 5 stars by 19 customers and a lot of the negative reviews are about how it is not as good as this x model.
What were they expecting at this price level and given that the competitors cost so much more. The eighth generation quad core Intel i7–8550U processor (8MB cache) runs at speeds of 1.8GHz up to 4GHz with turbo boost feature. 8GB DDR4 RAM is more than enough for a great percentage of users and can be upgraded up to 16GB. The high-speed 256GB SSD is good enough storage space and you’ll probably be using the Cloud too for easy access to your files wherever you have internet access.
The operating system is the Windows 10 Home 64-bit version with a user-friendly interface with the older familiar and brand new features. This is a renewed computer offered by the Amazon Renewed team at a lower cost than the original. It looks and functions like brand new that comes with a 90-day Amazon Renewed warranty. On the same product page you’re given the option to purchase the Spin 3 with Intel i5 processor, 8GB RAM and 256 GB SSD at 105 dollars less or the same Spin 5 without the Stylus pen at 10 dollars less at the time of this review.
The 13.3-inch FHD 10-point multitouch screen has the 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, 16:9 image aspect ratio and IPS panel with the very large viewing angles. The Intel UHD 620 is the built-in graphics card with a benchmark score of 1063 for adequate daily media performance. This is not an advanced or mid-range gaming laptop by any means. It has a high definition 720p webcam and two stereo speakers and the integrated digital microphone as part of the Acer TrueHarmony High-Performance Sound System for life-like audio with higher volumes and deeper bass.
Multi-touch display supports the 10 finger touch. The precision touchpad is quite responsive and you can use it with the 10-point touchscreen without needing a mouse. Connectivity options include the 802.11ac wireless featuring MU-MIMO technology, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI output, two USB 3.0 ports one of them with power-off charging, a USB-C 3.1 port (gen 1), a USB 2.0 port, a 3.5mm audio jack and the micro SD card reader. Keyboard is conveniently backlit for an easier typing experience in the dark or dim light.
Acer Spin 5 looks stylish and modern with the metal cover and the gently beveled edges. What you get will be just like the brand new computer, but not in its original packaging or will perhaps have very small things like a wear on the serial number sticker at the bottom. You will also get the original power supply, a USB-C to HDMI adapter and a USB-C to USB-A adapter.
Acer Spin 5 weighs just 2.6 pounds and is 0.63 inches thick, has that slim and lightweight yet solid and durable Macbook feel. It is a convertible laptop with a screen that rotates around a 360-degree rotating hinge, to be used in different formats of laptop, tablet, stand and tent modes. This renewed model is quite a bargain with its very sturdy build with quality materials, fast processor, good amounts of memory and SSD, modern connectivity options, FHD touch display and great sound, all aluminum body, lightweight, compact size, and long battery life of around 9 hours on average when you consider the full price of the brand new model.
