The acer spin tablet-laptop it's great! It's design is very modern and super convenient. You can choose the tablet mode that brings a digital keyboard in the screen or switch to laptop to use the keyboard. The screen image quality is good but not very high definition. Overall, the use of Microsoft office is very good and reliable. The processor is fast and I haven't had any error after 2 months of use. I use it for work and personal use and I loved it !

This is a great computer. We mostly use it to homeschool and to do research. I have always been pleased with Acer computers. They provide affordable computers and laptops that are easy to use and help me stay productive. I have used them for several years and have no complaints. This computer is not different. I love the sleek outer appearance. It's so slim and can be easily carried in a medium sized purse. The battery life is awesome. I don't use it for more than an hour or two at a time, and even then, it lasts for days before I have to recharge. Then recharging only takes a short time before your back in action. I love that there is an HDMI port. It helps when presenting lessons to multiple children at once. We easily hook up the HDMI cord from the tv, complete our lesson, and return the chord to the tv when done. It's so easy. I haven't used Windows in awhile. I was surprised to see the Windows 10 addition has lots of the programs I'm used to (like Word and Explorer) and some new features (like apps). I love the ability to turn this laptop into a tablet. It gives you so many more options for use. The only thing I don't like is when in spin (tablet) mode your constantly pressing the keys underneath. They don't work in tablet mode, but I just always feel like I'm going to break them or something. Otherwise, this is a great little addition to our homeschool and family.
Following review is on the Acer Spin 1 SP111-33-P1XD, 11.6 HD Touch.
This is an awesome little laptop! It is smaller than what I am accustomed to in a laptop, however, having the ability to easily switch from laptop to tablet with just a flip of the screen surpasses that expectation and then converts it to a large tablet ! Which, I happen to prefer...
• Design - I love the textured surface, slim cut and very light weight; making this my go to carry long to work. Once break time or lunch rolls around, I can easily bust out my laptop/tablet and enjoy a movie or music. Fabulous!
• Laptop or Tablet – I would estimate at least 95% of the time I have this little laptop converted to tablet mode with touch and that alone makes this product well worth the value. Like having a generous sized tablet, Love It!
• Picture & Sound -Audio quality is exceptional. Its perfect when watching movies or listening to music; exceptionally clean, crisp and sharp. Picture quality is also adequate, not the most crisp and vivid but definitely sufficient. I ran a diagnostic and found this laptop offers a refresh rate of 60hz. This is great for surfing the web, creating documents, and watching movies. Jut to test I put on a movie for my little ones and not once did we experience lagging, breaking, or freezing.
• Navigating - Whether I'm using the keyboard with touch pad or the touch screen its on point and works great.
• Applications - For those that want extra security this laptop comes with Microsoft S Mode which locks out all other applications not trusted by Microsoft; however, you can switch out. This lowers the security level allowing you to download your trusted apps. SIDE NOTE: From what I understand once you switch out you cannot turn it back on. There are some great application I use on a daily basis:
o Microsoft Office 365 (1 yr free)
o MS Word
o MS Power Point
o MS Excel
o MS Publisher
o MS Access
Overall, I love this little laptop its perfect for so many things: typing up documents, homework, paying bills, editing pictures, and best of all keeping the kiddos entertained while I'm working.
Use as regular laptop or as touchscreen tablet!!
The whole family loves using this Acer Spin. It is suppose to be only for my use but they keep stealing it on me! First off set up was easy. The computer walks you through the process step by step. Some of those steps you're allowed to “skip” and come back to at another time, if you're in a hurry. Having another Microsoft accounts helps too. Right out the box I did have to charge it before first use. A full battery will allow about 8 hours of use. It comes with Microsoft 10 already installed. When updates are available it takes only minutes to do so. You can use this Acer as a normal lap top or as they call it “Notebook mode” and it runs in desktop mode with keyboard and/or mouse. The second way you can use the Acer Spin is in Pad mode. You flip the screen completely backwards 360 degrees so just the screen is showing like you were using a tablet. If you enter “tablet mode” apps expand to full screen which is optimized for touch screen use. The Acer Spin is super thin and very lightweight. I would absolutely recommend to a high school or college student.
Great for Teachers!
This was such a blessing and came at the perfect time! The laptop that teachers are assigned are ANCIENT! Half of the time, they won't connect to WiFi, can't hold a charge, or are as slow as molasses. I had so many issues with the laptop assigned to my room last year. This is the best surprise I could have received all year! Compared to my prehistoric laptop at school, this one is golden. Besides the fact that it's new, it is touchscreen and so light weight! I'll be able to use it anywhere in my room with convenience. No more landline or plug-in cords! One of the best features is that it comes with Microsoft Office! I can create my PowerPoints, lesson plans, and activities all in one place. I'll be able to print from home and from school. It saves me from having to save everything to a flashdrive or emailing it to myself to print later and such. The set up was simple. I was able to connect all my Microsoft accounts and devices. I'm not super techy. But, it takes you step by step through the process. Love it and cannot wait to use it in my classroom!
Easy travel. Flip key board. Voice control
It's compact and has a tablet mode.
I like to think of this as a tablet with a full size keyboard, a keyboard that you won't lose.
It even has a headphone hole.
This will easily fit in a standard size purse
I really enjoy the convenience of this device. The touch screen really makes life so much easier.
Charge for about an hour or more to get it fully charged before trying to set it up.
Remove the S mode so that you can install Googlehrome. If however you prefer bing, then this tablet is ready to go right out of the box.
Comes with a full year of MS Office.
A perfect laptop!!
This touch screen laptop is absolutely amazing,
It is a lite weight product that can handle so much more than what you would
The memory base on it is perfect for any student,
This is a great gift for those up coming college bound students,
It flips around perfectly to use your finger or a stylus,
Fast and Responsive 2-in-1
I am really pleased with my Acer Spin 1 2-in-1 laptop/tablet. It is fast and responsive and it gives me the option of swapping between tablet mode and laptop mode by simply flipping the display around to the back.
The Acer Spin 1 came packed in a well-protected box and was inside a dust cover. It came with a charger and some literature. It had charge on the battery when it arrived, so I was able to plug it in and set up Windows while it completed its charge.
Setting it up was very easy and just a matter of entering my existing Windows 10 username and password. It used my Windows account to set the device up and took roughly 15 minutes. Once I was signed in and it was set up, it gave me the option of syncing my phone and other devices which use an Android operating system. This worked very nicely and is a great feature.
The Acer Spin 1 has a very sensitive touch screen with true HD resolution. Movie streaming services come in beautifully on the screen and without stuttering or excessive buffering. I have also used the internet and e-reader apps, all of which work flawlessly.
Another great feature is that this device comes with a copy of Office 365 Personal already loaded. This is a huge value and turns it into a sort of work horse! In laptop mode you can use Office 365 for school or work, and is something that many 2-in-1's don't come with.
Swapping between tablet and laptop modes is really easy. You just flip the keyboard around. Windows 10 detects this and automatically changes to the correct mode. I really like this feature, too. It makes it so easy to transition between modes. I can watch movies on the tablet and if I need to write an email or review a document from work, I just flip the display. It switches instantaneously.
The keyboard is compact but very functional. I had no problems typing at full speed. The keys have a nice feel to them and don't required extra force to type.
The battery life is pretty good. As long as it's not in heavy use, it seems to maintain its charge well. With heavy use, I'd recommend keeping it plugged in. The speakers have good sound. They aren't tinny sounding and has a good range from low to high volume.
This device has a lightning fast 2.7Ghz quad core processor and 4GB of RAM. Definitely more than enough power to do most anything the average person needs to do. And, with a 64GB solid state drive
Overall, this is a fantastic device. It rivals the quality of many top brands and I will most definitely buy Acer brand products in the future after seeing how nicely made this device is.
Great budget laptop
this is a great light weight laptop. its easy to use and set up took less than 15 minutes. this computer comes with windows 10 s. I take classes thru an online university and the etextbook we use requires adobe reader. windows 10 s is not compatable. This was an easy fix. i went to program and about and there as it shows you the windows version is a link that will switch the compiter to windows 10 pro. it was litterally a click of a button and i was able to install adobe acrobat with no further issues. The resolution on the laptop is not as crisp as i would like but i had no problem doing any homework or on breaks surfing the web. i was also able to use Word with no issues. overall i like this laptop and if your needing one for school or casual use this is a great choice. oh you can also fold the computer back to use in tablet mode. touch screen was very responsive.
Acer Spin 1
I love that this notebook is touch screen because my 3 year old can operate it to watch his videos! I like it also because I can surf the web and play games. It's lightweight, small, and another cool part is the 360 degree hinge which lets you fold the notebook! It's ultra slim, 11.6” HD screen, Bluetooth (which is great for playing music for me), Windows 10 in S mode(not too crazy about), two built in speakers. The battery life is really awesome! Who has time to keep charging!! It also has Cortana, Microsoft's digital assistant to help get things done. I don't really use Cortana on the laptop but I do use it on the desktop at times.
This Acer Spin has 64 GB memory, 2.4GHZ speed (the speed is wonderful). The only thing I can't figure out is how to play my favorite game on this notebook (UNO). I think it has something to do with the Windows 10. But overall, I like this notebook a lot. It's not very expensive like some notebooks and it's easy to set up and navigate.
