Acer Spin 5 overview

  • 1Description

The Acer 15.6" Spin 5 2-in-1 Multi-Touch Notebook is Windows 10 Home computer system, running on an 8th-generation Intel Core i7-8550U processor, and features a 360° hinge that lets you use it as a typical notebook or a tablet. Powered by a quad-core processor and 8GB of DDR4 RAM, the Spin 5 can handle multiple applications at the same time. When processing a heftier workload, the CPU can reach a core clock speed of 4.0 GHz thanks to Intel Turbo Boost technology.

Acer has outfitted this Spin 5 with a 15.6" IPS touchscreen and a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card to deliver stutter-free visuals at a resolution of 1920 x 1080. To increase efficiency and accessibility, the touchscreen supports touch commands and gestures in Windows 10. Additionally, an HDMI port is available to expand the onscreen workspace to your TV or external monitor.

For storing photos, videos, files, and apps, the Spin 5 comes equipped with a 1TB hard drive. To share multimedia files with others online, the Spin 5 connects to the Internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi or Gigabit Ethernet. Once connected, you can conduct face-to-face conversations by using its pair of speakers, webcam, and microphone. Other notable connectivity features include Bluetooth 4.1, one USB 2.0 port, and three USB 3.0 ports. One of the USB 3.0 ports has a USB Type-C interface, which lets you connect a USB-C cable on the first try. There's also a fingerprint reader for quick access to the system without typing a password.

Windows 10 Home Features

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the Internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
