Acer has updated its Spin series in India with Spin 3, a new convertible that comes with a 15.5-inch display. Priced at Rs 42,999 the Acer Spin 3 comes with a 360-degree hinge and is rated to offer 9 hours of battery backup. The Acer Spin 3 was announced along with the Spin 7 and the Spin 5 at the IFA last year.
The Acer Spin 3 sports a 15.6-inch HD display that comes with Colour Intelligence which will automatically optimise the screen color with regards to the type of content its displaying. The BlueLightShield is expected to shield the users eyes from screen emissions. Under the hood, Acer Spin 3 draws its power from a 6th Generation Intel Core i3 processor clocked at 2.0GHz and coupled with 4GB of RAM. On the storage front, the convertible offers 500GB of HDD storage. The Spin 3 also comes equipped with Intel HD Graphics 520.
Connectivity options on the Acer Spin 3 include Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Dual USB 3.1 Type-C ports for quick data transfers and connection to an external display. Furthermore, Acer Spin 3 also comes with audio features like Dolby Audio Premium and Acer Trueharmony both of which aim at enabling crisp and clear surround sound. The HD webcam also comes with the HDR support thus letting users capture relatively bright pictures in low light conditions.
Design wise the Acer Spin 3 imbibes the Acer DNA and comes with a brushed finish and the hinges that are painted in a contrasting color. The Acer Spin 3 does seem to be a good offering at the given price, especially since there is a dearth of 15.6-inch convertibles that are priced below the 50K mark. Features like the backlit keyboard and a 1.6mm keystroke are expected to go well with the prospective buyers.
