Acer has made three significant upgrades to the best-in-class Chromebook Spin 713.
- Acer Chromebook Spin 713 is a Chrome OS laptop with a 13.50-inch display that has a resolution of 2256×1504 pixels.
- It is powered by a Core i7 processor.
- Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 ac and it comes with USB 3.2 Gen 2 (Type C), Thunderbolt 4 (Type C) ports.
- The USB-C ports both support Thunderbolt 4.
- You get noticeably more vertical space than you would from a standard 16:9 display of a similar size.
- Less scrolling, less zooming out, more room for all your tabs and apps.
- The fingerprint reader also helps put the Spin 713 above premium competitors.
- The touchpad is smooth, accurate, and quite large.
- The Spin is the first Chromebook to be certified through Intel’s Evo program, which is meant to recognize the best portable Intel laptops on the market.
- The Spin 713 runs Chrome OS, as all Chromebooks do. It supports all Android apps via Google Play.
- The first is that its audio is thin, and I heard a bit of distortion at maximum volume.
- The second is that the Spin’s aesthetic is utilitarian. The finish is somewhat drab, and the screen bezels are chunky.
