Acer announced that its new ultrathin Acer Spin 7, the world’s thinnest convertible notebook and a CES 2017 Innovations award honoree, is now shipping in the United States. Also available today is the Acer Spin 5 delivering solid performance and long battery life in a compact chassis.
Providing optimum flexibility, both the Spin 5 and Spin 7 incorporate an innovative 360-degree hinge and Continuum, so they can be used as a laptop or tablet, in space-saving display mode, or in tent mode for watching movies, sharing presentations or viewing recipes. They also deliver fast boot up and data transfer with 8GB DDR4 RAM and 256GB SSD and support 10 finger touch for quickly and easily scrolling through web pages and more. Displays with IPS technology deliver brilliant, vivid visuals that look great from any angle.
Spin 7 – Ultimate Portability and Power
The SP714-51- M4YD is the first model available in the Acer Spin 7 series. Packed with power, it offers the newest 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-7Y75 Processor (1.3GHz/3.6GHz with Turbo Boost Technology) and up to 8 hours2 of battery life, making it ideal for frequent travelers or anyone wanting to stay productive all day. It’s ultra-light at just 2.6 pounds and thinner than a DVD case with a 0.43-inch all-aluminum unibody design. Diamond cut edges provide a slender, clean profile and its 14-inch Full HD touch display’s narrow border maximizes viewing area. Durable Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 makes the display tough and helps protect against scratches, while reducing reflections for better visibility outdoors.
Dual USB 3.1 Type-C ports deliver quick data transfer, connection to an external display, and can also charge the Spin 7, a smartphone and other digital devices. A USB Type-C to standard USB (Type A) adapter is also provided for leveraging legacy mice, keyboards and other peripherals. Featuring 2×2 802.11ac with MU-MIMO wireless technology, the Spin 7 provides smooth streaming, fast downloads and up to three times faster connections than older wireless standards, even at longer ranges.3 In addition, optimized Dolby® Audio Premium® sound enhancement provides rich audio via two integrated speakers with channel output that automatically reverses when the display is flipped over.
Spin 5 – Compact, Long Battery Life
Small and compact, the Acer Spin 5 SP513-51- 55ZR features a 13.3-inch Full HD display and a proprietary 360 degree dual-torque hinge, which makes it easy to open, while preventing it from toppling over when using the touchscreen. The crossed-hairline brush finish on the aluminum top cover has a fabric-like appearance, reducing fingerprints and making the Spin 5 easy to grip. Equipped with an Intel® Core™ i5-6200U processor (2.3GHz/2.8GHz with Turbo Boost Technology), the Acer Spin 5 delivers solid performance with up to 10 hours2 of battery life. A USB 3.0 port and two USB 2.0 ports provide connectivity to a wide array of peripherals, while a MicroSD card reader can access images, data and more from other electronics. This convertible can also be used with an optional Acer Active Pen and Windows Ink.
The Acer Spin 7 and Spin 5 come with Bluetooth® 4.1 for leveraging wireless peripherals. Acer BluelightShield™ may help reduce eye strain and fatigue from long viewing sessions. For live video conferences and staying in touch face to face at home, work and on the go, the advanced HD (1280 x 720) webcam portrays clear images, while Acer TrueHarmony™ delivers quality sound.
