Acer showed off quite a lot of new products today, but for those looking for something a little more standard, and a little more powerful, look no further than the Acer Spin 5 2-in-1 convertible laptop.
Rocking a 360 degree hinge for tablet mode, tent mode, and standard clamshell configurations, the Spin 5 weighs just 1.5 kg and clocks in at an impressive 15.9mm thin. It comes in both 13-inch and 15-inch varieties, too.
Both devices will rock 8th generation Kaby Lake Intel processors, up to 16 GB of DDR4 RAM, while clocking in at up to 13 hours of battery life. The 15-inch model will also come with an impressive NVIDIA GTX 1050 d-GPU option, while still retaining impressive thinness at just 17.9mm.
Both devices come with Full HD touch screens, with compatibility with the Acer Active Stylus pen designed for Windows Ink. Metallic bodies also hide two front-facing speakers with Dolby Audio Premium tech, designed to be fully exposed regardless of the 2-in-1's screen position.
Speaking of audio, the Spin 5 will also include far-field voice-recognition technology, making it a great pick for Cortana voice control fans or Skype users.
The Acer Spin 5 is aiming for a September 2017 launch in North America, with both the 13-inch and 15-inch models starting at $799; and in Europe with the 13-inch model starting at €899 and the 15-inch model starting at €999. Stay tuned for more information and a more detailed look at the device in the future!
