CES 2020 : Acer Introduces New Spin 5 and Spin 3

The new Acer Spin 5 and Acer Spin 3 notebooks were introduced today, featuring slimmer designs with the latest 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and Windows 10 Home.

The new Spin 5 and Spin 3 feature slimmer designs that make their convertible form factors more enjoyable to use with four usage modes: tablet, notebook, display or tent. Durable 360-degree hinges allow for smooth transitions between modes, so professionals and students can effortlessly change tasks.

Measuring only 0.59 inches (14.9 mm) thin, the Spin 5 (SP513-54N) has a 13.5-inch 2K touch display surrounded by slim bezels that are only 7.78 mm narrow, giving it an 80% screen-to-body ratio. The display’s 3:2 aspect ratio adds 18% more vertical space compared to an equally wide 16:9 display, so users scroll less when viewing websites, documents, and spreadsheets. Plus, the Spin 5’s magnesium aluminum chassis and palm rest make it durable and lightweight — only 2.65 lbs (1.2 kg). The Spin 5 also comes with an integrated fingerprint reader for fast and more secure logins via Windows Hello.

The new Acer Spin models both feature an included fast-charging Acer Active Stylus that employs Wacom AES technology, reliable and speedy Wi-Fi 6 and a full range of ports, including USB Type C with support for Thunderbolt™ 3. The hinge features a design that elevates the keyboard in laptop mode, allowing for a comfortable typing experience.

The new Spin 3 (SP314-54N) has on the other hand offers a 14-inch Full HD display and thin 7.82 mm bezels that provide a 78% screen-to-body ratio. The large widescreen touch display gives ample room for working on multiple projects, comparing documents and enjoying vibrant video. Weighing 3.31 pounds (1.5 kg) and measuring 0.67 inches (16.9 mm) thin, the sleek and stylish aluminum chassis fits comfortably into a brief case or book bag.

Quick-Charging Dockable Acer Active Stylus with Long Battery Life

Both the Spin 5 and Spin 3 come standard with a fast-charging Acer Active Stylus using Wacom AES (active electrostatic) technology which replicates actual ink and paper with 4,096 pressure levels, so writing, drawing and all pen interactions are precise and realistic. The Spin 5 supports an optional Acer Active Stylus with Wacom AES 2.0 technology for an even smoother and more accurate writing experience.
