Fold the skinny Acer Spin 7 into the device you need the most

Acer's convertible Spin 7 has 360-degree hinge that lets you transform it from a laptop to a tablet to a monitor.

In its most traditional form, the Spin 7 is just a normal laptop. But with a 0.43-inch profile, it's one of the slimmest laptops around.

If you'd like to watch a film, just "spin" it into a tent-like shape. The 14-inch Full HD touchscreen is Gorilla Glass.

The Spin weighs 2.6 pounds, making it easy to use as a tablet while holding it. It runs Windows 10 and Continuum, on a 7th-generation Intel Core i7 processor.

The Spin 7 comes with two USB Type-C ports.

The keyboard felt relatively comfortable in the few minutes I used it.

But to keep the Spin so thin, the keys are quite flat.
