There are some instances in which using a tablet is more efficient than say using a computer, but dragging around two devices along with you all the time can be a bit of a hassle, which is why hybrid devices have seen an increase in popularity in which it offers up a tablet-like experience, but can also be turned back into a laptop if needed.
If you’re after such a device, you’re in luck as Acer has announced the new Spin 7 convertible laptop. As you can see from the photos, the Spin 7’s name is aptly chosen as its display can actually spin around and turn it into a tablet of sorts. Granted we’re not talking about iPad levels of thinness, but if you just wanted a full touchscreen display then you’ve always got that option.
The Spin 7 features a 14-inch Full HD IPS Corning Gorilla Glass display and an all-aluminum body. It boasts 8 hours of battery life and under the hood, it is no slouch either. Powered by the 7th generation Intel Core i7 processor, it comes with up to 8GB of RAM, 256GB of SSD storage, dual USB Type-C ports, and weighs a somewhat manageable 1.2 kg.
For customers who are interested, Acer has announced that the Spin 7 will be available in North American markets starting this October. It will also be priced starting at $1,199.
