For a laptop presented in the price segment up to 500 euros, it is natural that not a metal, but a plastic case will be used, as happened with the Acer Spin 3 SP314-51-P0WG transformer. Despite this, the transformer looks high quality and well executed. The same goes for the “mouse substitute”, which functions flawlessly, except for a little twitching.

Test results

With the release of the Acer Spin 3 SP314-51-P0WG (NX.GUWEV.007), the Taiwanese manufacturer has set a new benchmark for the transformer market. Inexpensive laptop with a touch screen during the test showed a combination of very good performance with a long battery life. The 14-inch display is also convincing, but it is only marginally suitable for outdoor use due to the glare surface and relatively low brightness. Complementing the overall positive impression is the list of equipment, the level of which can be assessed as above average.

Advantages

excellent everyday performance
very long battery life
high contrast IPS panel

Flaws

the display is a bit dark
no USB 3.1 (Type-C)

The non-backlit keyboard is also of good quality, but offers a rather slippery surface and is a bit noisy when typing — but you get used to it.

Despite minor flaws, the Acer Spin 3’s keyboard made a good impression on us.

If you do not want to put up with these shortcomings, you can connect an external keyboard and mouse. The device has three USB ports (2x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0). The new USB Type-C port is not available for this transformer. But on the side you will find an HDMI output and an SDXC card reader. Wireless data transfer is carried out via Bluetooth 4.0 and WLAN-ac; The LAN port is not shown, but it can be connected using the appropriate USB adapter.

Excellent performance

The Intel Pentium 4415U with a base clock speed of 2.3 GHz, 4 GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD drive are responsible for ensuring that the power of the device is sufficient for everyday work. Thanks to them, this laptop is suitable for even quite demanding office and multimedia operations. Together with the integrated graphics subsystem (Intel HD Graphics 610), here you can even do basic image and video processing, and even run small games. The results of our measurements confirm this: in the PCMark 7 benchmark, which allows you to evaluate the overall performance of the computer, Acer Spin 3 gave out a very good 4,724 points and dethroned the former performance leader, Aspire 3 A315-51-31FY.

Thanks to the SSD, the system responds to commands quickly

A small reason for criticism: a glare display

Display Acer Spin 3 with its 14 inches is unusually large for a transformer. However, after a short period of getting used to, this becomes an additional advantage: the image is larger, the virtual keyboard is more convenient to work with, and in general the use of the touch screen is more efficient. And otherwise, according to the results of the test, with one small exception, the display makes a good impression. In particular, the colorful IPS-panel has a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels (Full-HD) and offers a wonderful checkerboard contrast ratio of 192:1.

The maximum brightness reaches 234 cd / m2, which is a good value for this price segment, but in practice it turns out to be insufficient to deal with interfering glare and reflections when used outdoors. However, whoever manages to find a shady spot will be able to work with the Acer Spin 3 for a very long time.

Whether it’s a tablet or a laptop, Spin 3 is great fun to use in both modes.

Very good battery life

In office mode, the laptop can last more than 12 hours, with pure video playback, the timer will count down more than 10.5 hours — two record values. However, the large battery has a side effect: at 1.7 kg, the 14-inch transformer is not lightweight.

Transformer alternative: Acer TravelMate B118-RN-P6BE (NX.VFXEG.009)

Acer Spin 3 SP314-51-P0WG test: excellent mid-range transformerThe Spin series is not the only Acer product line that has been affected by the «transformer hype». Acer TravelMate Spin B1 B118-RN-P6BE can also be used both as a laptop and as a tablet. During testing, this model was convincing with its 11.6-inch display, sufficient performance levels and long battery life. Particularly practical: the stylus is included free of charge. The cost of TravelMate will be at the level of approximately 23 tens of dollars.

Laptop alternative: Lenovo IdeaPad 320S-14IKB (80X40055GE)

In addition, during the tests, the laptop scored excellent performance, excellent equipment and good ergonomics. Only the duration of battery life at a cost of about 250$could be better.
