Usually when it comes to displays, the larger the display, the more expensive it is. This is usually the case for monitors, TVs, and of course, laptops. However, if you want a larger laptop display but don’t want to pay a premium for it, then you might be interested in the Acer Chromebook Spin 513.
Unveiled at CES 2022, the Acer Chromebook Spin 513 is rather unique in the sense that instead of using a display that has a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is kind of the norm, it uses a 3:2 ratio which means that users will actually have an additional 18% of vertical space on the 13.5-inch display.
If you’re someone who reads a lot of websites or does coding and you need to see more lines of code, having a taller display can help. This is also why some developers actually have a monitor setup in vertical mode when working. In addition to the display, the laptop will also be powered by the MediaTek Kompanio 1380 chipset, which features 8-cores and boasts up to 10 hours of battery life.
It is also a hybrid design which means that you can easily flip the keyboard around and transform the laptop into a tablet. There is support for WiFi 6, DTS Audio with upward-firing speakers, built-in microphones, and it is also MIL-STD 810H rated which means that it should be able to survive some bumps and knocks.
The Acer Chromebook Spin 513 will be available in North America in June 2022 where it will be priced starting at $599.99.
