The Acer Chromebook Spin 513 is the first Snapdragon-powered Chromebook


At the annual Next@Acer global press conference, the Taiwanese company unveiled a barrage of new products across various segments. One of the most affordable ones from the lot was the Acer Chromebook Spin 513.

The biggest talking point is the chipset that powers it. The Acer Chromebook Spin 513 is the world’s first Chromebook to be powered by a Snapdragon processor. The Snapdragon 7c compute platform is an entry-level SoC for affordable portable laptops with the Kyro 468 CPU and Adreno 618 GPU. Built on an 8nm process, it is expected to score high on efficiency. Acer claims a battery life of 14 hours on a single charge.

Designed for remote workers and students, the Acer Chromebook Spin 513 is fairly sleek at just 15.55mm thick and a weight of less than 1.2 kgs. A pair of 360-degree hinges also allow the laptop to be used in four configurations: traditional keyboard input, tablet, display and tent modes. The IPS display spans 13.3-inches across with a Full HD resolution and touchscreen abilities.
