Acer’s Spin 7 Looking to take care of your festive Computing needs

Earlier this year Acer expanded its convertible notebook with the Spin 7 (a notebook aiming to take a slice of the Yule cake from Microsoft’s Surface Book this Xmas).

The latest Spin series convertible notebook runs on Windows 10 (64-bit), and incorporates a 360-degree hinge system, along with Continuum, which enables the device to be used in various ways i.e. as a notebook or tablet, in a space-saving display mode, or in tent mode which is basically allowing you to use the device for sharing presentations or for say watching movies.

Depending on the model, the Spin 7 also offers fast and reliable wireless connectivity with 802.11ac MU-MIMO wireless technology, thus by linking up to a compatible MU receiver it can provide faster downloads speeds than a standard wireless connection.

In terms of the screen the 14” FULL-HD Touch display is partnered with Acer’s BluelightShield which minimises eye strain, Acer Color Intelligence which maximises color saturation for bright and clear visuals, and Acer TrueHarmony for crisp and clear audio.

Acer Spin 7 –Portability and Flexibility

Thinner than a standard DVD case, the Spin 7 is only 0.43 inches thin (10.98 mm) and weighs 2.6 pounds (1.2 kgs), providing ample portability and flexibility.

Its 13” all-aluminum uni-body houses the aforementioned 14-inch Full HD IPS Corning Gorilla Glass touchscreen display with a narrow bezel. It’s matte black chassis is complemented with polished silver hinges and diamond-cut edges around the touchpad. It is said to offer up to 8 hours of battery life (depending on the type of work that is done).

The Spin 7 incorporates a 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor, up to 8GB of Low-Power LPDDR3 memory and a 256GB SSD. Bringing up the rear is a dual USB 3.1 Type-C ports for quick data transfers, connection to an external display, and to charge the notebook. Finally a wide glass touchpad helps your fingers glide smoothly across the surface with minimal friction.

Price

The Acer Spin 7 is available now starting at £1,099.99.

Exact specifications, prices, and availability will vary by region. To learn more about availability, product specifications and prices in specific markets, please contact your nearest Acer office via www.acer.com.
