TAIPEI, TAIWAN - Acer today announced the latest version of its popular Spin 1 convertible notebook. With a sleek all-metal chassis, the Windows 10 device is lightweight, portable and supports Windows Ink through an Acer Active Stylus1 for creative users on the go.


Weighing in at just 1.25 kg (2.76 lbs), the 14 mm (0.55-inch)-thin chassis sports the latest Intel® Pentium® or Intel® Celeron® processors, 4 GB DDR3L memory as well as a choice of 32 / 64 / 128 GB eMMC storage. Its crisp 11.6-inch Full HD (1920x1080) touch-enabled screen with IPS[2] technology displays vibrant colors at 178-degree viewing angles. Eight hours of battery life allows users to work, play, share, and draw all day with four versatile modes (laptop, display, tablet and tent).


The Spin 1 combines superb hardware with innovative features to make the user experience really pop. On all models the Precision Touchpad, which supports Windows 10 gestures, allows users to work faster and smoother due to accurate tracking of their fingertips and movements. To help with more complex projects, the Spin 1 is fully ready to work with the Acer Active Stylus1 accessory which enables precise and direct on-screen input, providing a natural pen-on-paper experience. Users can quickly turn thoughts into action, capture ideas swiftly and naturally with Windows Ink.


With fast and reliable wireless connectivity through Intel® Wireless-AC (802.11ac 2x2) technology, the Spin 1 is capable of providing up to three times faster[3] downloads compared to traditional 802.11n 2x2 devices. The device also features Acer BluelightShield which may help to reduce eye strain from prolonged screen viewing.


Speakers with Acer TrueHarmony technology are located on both sides of the device. Audio channels automatically reverse to ensure optimal sound quality in any mode, and are paired with a webcam for video chats. Additional connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.0, one USB 3.1 port, one USB 2.0 port, one HDMI port and one microSD (SDXC) card slot.
