A 2-in-1 for everyone
The Acer Spin 5 is a 2-in-1 convertible laptop that's full of features and competitively priced. What's not to like?
The laptop's 360-degree hinges allow it to fold into various positions.
Fold the keyboard over a full 360-degrees for a tablet experience. It's nowhere near as compact as a real tablet, however.
It's not made with movies in mind, yet it makes for a passable portable TV. Its HD screen is sharp enough and the speakers are surprisingly loud.
The all-metal design is thin for the number of ports on the laptop.
Many USB ports
It has a total of four USB ports. Seen here are the HDMI, USB-C and two USB 3.1 ports. There's one USB 2.0 port on the opposite side.
The Acer laptop isn't centered around stylus-use, yet it does come with one.
Active stylus pen
There's no place to store the pen on the laptop.
An SD card reader is hard to find these days.
All-metal and unadorned
Modestly designed and priced.
The full-size keyboard and touchpad are comfortable to use.
