Recently, there has been a flurry of Acer products being released and for the most part they have not missed a single beat.

The Spin 7 is no different in this regard. As I have mentioned before I am not a fan of the 360 degree screen technology on laptops. It just seems awkward to place your keyboard face-down on a table when working purely with the touch screen. I would rather get myself a proper tablet or the Switch Alpha 12 produced by Acer, a well-finished work of art.

Subtle product placement out of the way the Spin 7 operates perfectly as a run of the mill laptop. I truly never found the need to spin the screen all the way and work in purely touch screen mode. The functionality to me just seems like a value add or a great safeguard to any malicious children who are looking to try and break the hinges of your laptop. Previous comment has a backstory, terribly long and ends with a laptop that no longer functions.

The specs as tested were:
• Intel Core i7-7Y75 1.3 GHz
• 256GB SSD
• 14″ Full HD, multi-touch, CineCrystal IPS technology
• Windows 10 Home 64Bit
• Price R21749.99

The Spin 7 is almost as thin as the Swift 7 and nears the same levels of performance. Unfortunately, in terms of finish the Spin 7 just cannot compete and instead is very similar to the R14. This is not exactly a criticism as the R14 had a really decent mixture of metals and plastics in the all the right places.

In conclusion, the Spin 7 is basically the R14 with full 360 degree screen rotation. A powerful workhorse laptop that can transform into a rather awkward tablet.

Acer Spin 7 Rating: 8/10
