Acer launces new notebook series

DUBAI, August 31, 2016

Acer, a leading IT products and services company, has expanded its convertible notebook offerings with the Spin 7, Spin 5, Spin 3 and Spin 1 series.

The new Spin Series convertible notebooks run on Windows 10, and incorporate innovative 360-degree hinges, along with Continuum, that enable them to be used in various ways: as a notebook or tablet, in a space-saving display mode, or in tent mode for sharing presentations or watching movies, said a statement from the company.

The Spin Series offers a wide variety of choices to address different needs, with the Spin 7 debuting as Acer’s premiere line, it said.

The Spin 5 and Spin 3 offer solid performance combined with compelling technologies such as FHD IPS displays and speedy solid state drives, while the Spin 1 Series are ideal for students or as a second computer, it added.

Depending on model, the new notebooks offer fast and reliable wireless connectivity with 802.11ac MU-MIMO wireless technology, providing up to three times faster downloads.  

They also feature Acer BluelightShield which minimises eye strain, Acer Colour Intelligence which maximises colour saturation for bright clear visuals, and Acer TrueHarmony for crisp and clear audio.

The Spin 7 Series is a mere 10.98 mm thin and weighs just 1.2kg, making it the world’s thinnest1 convertible notebook. Its 13-inch all-aluminium unibody houses a 14-inch Full HD IPS Corning Gorilla Glass touchscreen display with a narrow bezel.

As strong on the inside as it is on the outside, uncompromised performance is assured with a 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor, up to 8GB of memory and a speedy 256GB SSD. Dual USB 3.1 Type-C ports are included for quick data transfer, connection to an external display, and to charge the notebook.  A wide glass touchpad helps fingers glide smoothly across the surface with minimal friction.

The Spin 5 Series features Acer’s proprietary wobble-free 360 degree dual-torque hinge, which makes them easy to open but prevents them from toppling over when using the touchscreen.  

Spin 5 is powered by up to 7th Generation Intel Core processors for incredible performance, up to 16GB of fast DDR4 memory and up to 512GB of SSD storage for fast boot up and data transfer.  

The Spin 3 convertible notebook includes a 15.6-inch HD or Full HD IPS display and come with a sporty-looking brushed hairline finish. Solid performance is delivered with 6th Generation Intel Core processors and up to 12GB of fast DDR4 memory.

The Spin 1 Series is ideal for students or for use as a second computer. The Spin 3 comes with 13-inch and 11.6-inch Full HD IPS displays, and include configurations with all new Intel Pentium or Celeron processors. Designed with the classroom in mind, the Spin 1 (SP111-31) supports an Acer Active Pen with Windows Ink, and features displays covered with Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass.
“With our new Spin Series, Acer has a wide range of convertible notebooks for each and every need,” said James Lin, general manager, commercial and detachable notebooks, IT products business, Acer. “Our top-of-the-line Spin 7 allows consumers to enjoy ultimate portability without compromising on performance or versatility.”

Peter Han, vice president of Worldwide OEM Marketing, Microsoft Corp, said: “Acer’s Spin series convertible notebooks really highlight the variety of Windows 10 devices that are available for different customers’ distinct needs.”

“Within the Spin series, customers can choose from a number of different Windows 10 PCs, good for a variety of uses, at a range of price points, and the convertible form factor offers additional flexibility on whichever device they choose,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
