Frame, connectors, screen of the Acer Spin 3 SP314-54N-53HB
Open at 360 ° to convert into a Tablet, this 2-in-1 Ultrabook features an original, sober and elegant design with its light silver design.
Multi-touch touch technology equips the screen and therefore, using the stylus (which has its own slot directly in the PC on the right) or at least one finger applied to it, you can interact with the system and software.
The screen is brilliant because of its tactile aspect: it is therefore subject to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors) but gives color punch.
The screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos because it adopts a precise Full HD definition as well as a 16: 9 format. As it adopts IPS technology, the screen also offers more faithful than average colorimetry as well as important viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical.
A fingerprint reader is integrated to authenticate by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology on the system.
The latter is Windows 10 Pro, a more complete edition than classic Windows 10 with its advanced security and network management tools (eg: BitLocker).
The chiclet keyboard can also be backlit, which is very practical to better distinguish its keys in a dimly lit environment.
In terms of connectivity, this versatile 2-in-1 Ultrabook is well equipped with its Thunderbolt 3 USB-C, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, its Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, its audio port without forgetting its 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers carried out up to 10 times more faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Spin 3 SP314-54N-53HB
The Acer Spin 3 SP314-54N-53HB is a thin and light compact High Definition laptop convertible into a Tablet for everyday versatile use on the go.
Nomads will be particularly interested in this hybrid Ultrabook because it offers good battery life above the average of about 11 hours in light use. It is all the more appreciable that this 2-in-1 computer is easy to transport thanks to its compactness, its thinness and its lightness.
However, the general performance it provides is able to satisfy many users because it incorporates 8 GB of RAM, low consumption like the processor, a Quad Core i5-1035G4 Intel Ice Lake.
The latter houses the Intel Iris Plus G4 graphics part with performance superior to those of the classic Intel UHD 620. Concretely, you can watch photos and videos on this 2-in-1 Ultrabook but also play titles that don’t consume much graphic resources. .
That said, it is better to opt instead for a PC based on a non-low-power processor and / or an appropriate dedicated graphics card if the objective is to often perform work that requires processor and / or graphics resources.
But we must be aware that in return that this will have a negative impact on battery life …
As for storage, Acer opts for a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in phase with the standard of hard drives. But if you need more space of course, you can use an external storage unit such as a Thunderbolt 3 / USB-3.0 / USB-C device to take advantage of fast transfers.
In any case, an SSD has several advantages compared to a simple hard drive: it is more robust, less energy consuming and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, we take advantage of much faster starts / stops as well as the processing and launching of applications, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
