Acer announced the Chromebook Spin 713 last month, and it’s already $100 off at Best Buy. Its normal price is set at $629, though it’s now $529. There are a few reasons you might want to consider this one over the countless other affordable options as well as some of the pricier models. First off, it has a 3:2 aspect ratio display, which affords extra vertical space so you can see more content on the screen without scrolling. It looks less cramped than 16:9, the aspect ratio used on most laptops.
The rest of the Chromebook Spin 713’s specs impress, including its 1440p resolution touchscreen, 10th Gen Intel Core i5-10210U processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD. All said, if you’ve been looking for a powerful Chromebook that has enough design chops to hang with some of the more expensive options from HP, Asus, and Google, this could be a great machine to pick up for back to school or for anyone else who spends most of their time in a browser.
My colleague Monica Chin has a review in the works for this machine, so stay tuned for that.
