2021 Acer Spin 3 + Spin 5 : What You Need To Know!

Acer just introduced the 2021 Spin 3 and Spin 5 convertible laptop models, with the latest Intel processors!

Take a look at both new Spin 3 and Spin 5 laptops, and find out what they offer!

 

2021 Acer Spin 3 + Spin 5 : What You Need To Know!

The 2020 Red Dot Design Award-winning Acer Spin 5 was just refreshed, and so is its sibling – the Acer Spin 3.

Convertible Design

They are both convertible laptops, with 360-degree hinges that lets them transform into different form factors to suit your requirements.

You can take notes in the tablet mode, watch movies in the tent mode, or use the clamshell mode for a more ergonomic typing experience!

Performance

Both models offer the latest 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor with Intel Iris Xe Graphics, and come with up to 16 GB of LPDDR4X memory and 512 GB of fast PCIe NVMe SSD storage!

The 2021 Acer Spin 5 models, in particular, come with the latest PCIe Gen 4 SSD, which offers double the transfer speed of PCIe Gen 3 SSDs.

Both models are Intel Evo platform-certified, which means they have designed to deliver better CPU, GPU and Wi-Fi performance, instant wake-up, and longer battery life!

This gives you a desktop-like computing performance, in a slim and light convertible form factor.

High Resolution Touch Display

The 2021 Acer Spin 5 offers a 13.5-inch QHD IPS display, with an impressive 80% screen-to-body ratio, with multi-touch and AES pen support.

The 2021 Acer Spin 3, on the other hand, comes with a 13.3-inch WQXGA IPS display, also with multi-touch and AES pen support.

Both displays support 100% sRGB colour gamut, and DC dimming, which allows for no-flicker image quality in low light conditions!

Acer Active Stylus

Both 2021 Acer Spin laptops come with the Acer Active Stylus in a built-in dock, that gives it a 90 minute battery life with just 15 seconds of charging!

With two configurable buttons, this active stylus supports 4,096 pressure levels, and offers a pen-to-paper like writing experience!

Antimicrobial Coating!

The 2021 Acer Spin 5 laptop is coated with a BPR and EPA-compliant silver-ion coating on the keyboard, fingerprint reader and palm rest, with its touchpad and display are protected by Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass.

Both the antibacterial coating and the antimicrobial glass inhibit and reduce bacterial growth on all surfaces that we may touch.

This is an important feature, because the Acer Spin 5 laptop will actually reduce the amount of bacteria we come into contact!

Embedded Fingerprint Reader

A fingerprint reader is embedded directly into the touchpad, giving you an easy and secure way to verify your identity using Windows Hello, without typing in a password.

This is very useful when you are using the laptop in public, where typing out a password is not recommended.

High-Speed Connectivity

Both 2021 Spin 5 and Spin 3 laptops come with Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650 built-in, for the fastest possible WiFi connectivity with lower latency.

On top of that, it all comes with dual Type-C with Thunderbolt 4 ports. These are ultra-fast ports that offer data and video transfers of up to 40 Gb/s – four times faster than USB 3.2!

Both these Thunderbolt 4 ports also allow you to output up to two 4K external displays for even greater productivity.

Light + Tough

The 2021 Spin laptops are built with an aluminium chassis, offering a slimmer profile and lighter weight.

The Spin 5 is only 14.9 mm thin, and weighs only 1.2 kg, while the Spin 3 is just 15.9 mm thin, and weighs only 1.4 kg.

Not only will they fit comfortably into any tote or laptop bag, you will have no problem carrying them in your hands for hours on end.

Ultra-Long Battery Life

Both 2021 Spin 5 and Spin 3 laptops have a long 15-hour battery life, based on the MobileMark 2014 test.

They also support fast charging technology, to keep you going wherever you are. A quick 30 minute charge will give you 4 hours of use!

Find Out How To Get Your Free Acer Active Stylus!

Despite some news to the contrary, the Acer Active Stylus is an optional accessory for the 2017 Acer Spin 5 convertible laptop. Let us clear up the confusion, and tell you how you can get the Acer Active Stylus absolutely FREE!

 

The Acer Active Stylus Confusion

In our coverage on the 2017 Acer Spin 5 convertible laptop, we pointed out that the Acer Active Stylus was an optional accessory. Some publications reported otherwise, leading to confusion and some disgruntled customers.

We checked with Acer Malaysia, who confirmed that their official press release remain correct – the Acer Active Stylus, was and still is, an optional accessory.

However, they also confirmed that they gave away the Active Stylus free with the 13.3″ Acer Spin 5 as part of a special offer. They also said that they are now extending the same offer to the 15.6″ Acer Spin 5.

So that’s the good news – everyone who purchased the new 2017 Acer Spin 5 will receive a FREE Acer Active Stylus!

 

How To Get The Free Acer Active Stylus

Acer Malaysia included the Active Stylus in the package of every 13.3″ model of the 2017 Acer Spin 5. If you purchased one, the Active Stylus should already be inside the package.

[adrotate group=”2″]

If you purchased the 15.6″ model, you will need to send an email with a proof of purchase (receipt or tax invoice) to ama.marcom@acer.com. Acer Malaysia will make arrangements to send you the free Acer Active Stylus in a month or so.

The free Acer Active Stylus is classified as complimentary, and is not part of the standard 2017 Acer Spin 5 package. That means Acer will only send one to you, if you ask them about it.

So help spread the word, so that all Acer Spin 5 customers are aware that they’re entitled to a free Active Stylus!

 

The Official Acer Malaysia Statement

Here is a statement by the Acer Malaysia rep who spoke to us about the Active Stylus issue :

The 13.3″ and 15.6″ Spin 5 support the Acer Active Stylus, which is an optional accessory. The stylus is not a standard bundle with the device during shipment. However, Acer Malaysia is giving the Acer Active Stylus FOC with any purchase of the newly launched Spin 5 (both 13.3″ and 15.6″ models). 
 
The 13.3″ model was shipped with the stylus. Customers who bought the 15.6″ model can send an email with proof of purchase (Tax Invoice) to ama.marcom@acer.com to claim their complimentary stylus. The arrangement and process will take about 1 month.

Share this article, so that all Acer Spin 5 customers are aware that they’re entitled to a free Active Stylus!
