Acer’s New Spin 7 Brings Life Full Swing with Extreme Portability and Versatility

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (November 28, 2016): Acer has expanded its convertible notebook offering with the launch of the Acer Spin 7, the latest convertible notebook that runs on Windows 10. With an innovative 360-degree hinge, along with Continuum, consumers are able to use the Spin 7 in a number of ways: a notebook or tablet, in a space-saving display mode, or in tent mode for sharing presentations or tuning in to Netflix. Providing the ultimate in flexibility, the Spin 7 will make computing anywhere, anytime, easier than ever.

“The Spin 7 really is a testament to Acer’s stance on innovation as it allows for total flexibility and versatility. We recognise that there is no such thing as the ‘average person’ anymore, hence why Acer has developed a product that takes into the account the needs of every individual. Our product is unique, just like our customers”, said Katherine Nguyen, Head of Marketing, Acer Australia and New Zealand.

Acer Spin 7 – Extreme Portability and Flexibility

The Spin 7 offers fast and reliable wireless connectivity with 802.11ac MU-MIMO wireless technology, providing up to 3 times faster[1] downloads. It also features Acer BluelightShield which minimises eye strain, Acer Colour Intelligence which maximises colour saturation for bright and clear visuals, and Acer TrueHarmony for crisp and clear audio.

Thinner than a standard DVD case, the Spin 7 is a mere thin 10.98 mm and weighs just 1.2 kg, providing extreme portability and flexibility. Its 13-inch all-aluminium uni-body houses a 14-inch Full HD IPS Corning® Gorilla® Glass touchscreen display with a narrow bezel. Sleek and contemporary, its matte black chassis is complemented with polished silver hinges and diamond-cut edges around the touchpad. It offers up to 8 hours[2] of battery life.

“Whether you’re stuck at the office or out and about, the Spin 7’s 8 hour battery life means that you have the peace of mind knowing that you can go where you need to go without having to take the charger and not worrying about running out of battery. The ability to not worry about chords truly defines what a portable device is meant to be and is a true reflection of the versatility and portability the Spin 7 provides,” said Gaba Cheng, Head of Products, Acer Australia and New Zealand.

As strong on the inside as it is on the outside, the Spin 7 offers uncompromised performance with a 7th Generation Intel® Core i7 processor, up to 8GB of memory and a speedy 256GB SSD. Dual USB 3.1 Type-C ports are included for quick data transfers, connection to an external display, and to charge the notebook. A wide glass touchpad helps fingers glide smoothly across the surface with minimal friction.

“The Spin 7 is truly the perfect accessory for every individual. The 360 degree hinge allows the Spin 7 to cater to all of a user’s needs, instead of the user having to adjust to its capabilities. Whether it’s for work or play, the Spin 7 is the only device that our modern day consumer needs,” said Katherine Nguyen.
