Chromebooks aren’t just for students anymore. The Acer Chromebook Spin 713 is an evolved version of the popular educational tool, aimed squarely at professional users. It offers an improved, versatile design, enhanced build quality, and a spec list that does its function justice.
The Acer Chromebook also offers the benefits of ChromeOS. Speed, security, and a serious battery are part and parcel of this upgraded version of Acer’s hardware. When paired with the bright 13.5in, 2,256 x 1,504 display, you’re looking at a spectacular productivity machine.
What’s on the inside
You’re going to want to know what’s under the skin. The Acer Chromebook range doesn’t actually need much power but you’ll still receive an Intel Core i3 1115G4, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. For a cloud-optimised device like the Acer Chromebook, it sports an unexpected amount of power. It boots in seconds, getting you to work as speedily as possible.
The high-end 13.5in FHD+ touchscreen display’s multitouch functionality has another purpose, thanks to an improved chassis. The Acer Chromebook offers a metal build, befitting an entry into the Spin range, and one other feature. The Spin 713 is a fully convertible notebook, meaning you can twist the screen into some seriously contorted positions. They’re all useful, obviously. Useful is the main function of this machine.
Out of the box
The Acer Chromebook Spin 713 works from the moment you turn it on. Anything that isn’t immediately included (and there’s not much at all) is at your fingertips via ChromeOS and the Google App Store. Setting up a productivity powerhouse that handles Microsoft’s Office suite of apps, Google’s version of the same, and a collection of the other essentials you need to make a serious office impression is a breeze.
You need not worry that an internet connection is an absolute requirement, either. There’s enough power – and storage – to make its offline functions just what you need when the power’s out and the internet’s off.
Acer’s Chromebook Spin 713 doesn’t only have to work in the boardroom, even if it’s dressed like it. If you’re keen on a spot of gaming or entertainment – and we could all use a little downtime – then that’s a serious option as well. Just pop on over to the Google Play Store and install your desired apps.
There’s another aspect that concerns the office-bound far more than your average student: security. That’s not a problem with the Acer Chromebook. Safety and security are baked in, thanks to automatic updates that keep your data and identity safe online. Whether you’re working in Office or tooling around in Google Drive or any number of other functions, you can feel secure that your data is… well, secure.
And it’ll stay secure for a long time. Acer’s Chromebook Spin 713 offers up to ten hours of battery life, more than enough to get you through a full and productive day at the office. There’s even a little left in the tank for some light entertainment when the traffic is done for the day and it’s time to relax.
