As for its existing lineup, Acer is also updating its Spin 1 convertible notebook with a sleeker metal case and some new hardware. It now includes Intel’s latest Celeron and Pentium processors, 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB eMMC storage. At 2.76 pounds, it’s not the sleekest convertible we’ve seen — especially considering its small 11.6-inch 1080p touchscreen. Just like before, the screen flips all the way around, allowing you to use the Spin 1 as a hefty tablet. Acer also claims it’ll get eight hours of battery life, though, as usual, we’d have to test that claim to be sure.
The Nitro 5 and the updated Spin 1 will both arrive in North America in July with prices starting at $799 and $329, respectively.
