This Acer Chromebook Spin 713, One of our favorite Chrome operating systems recently, is available at Best Buy.The retailer discounted this laptop for $80. This is the first time we have seen it discounted since it came out. With the discount, Spin 713 is currently $619 instead of $699. The model sold by Best Buy is equipped with an 11th-generation Intel Core i5 processor with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage space. It is also equipped with a large number of ports, including two USB-C Thunderbolt 4 connections, a microSD slot, and HDMI and headphone jacks.
Engadget provides a Spin 713 When we reviewed it last month. Part of what makes it stand out in the crowded Chrome OS market is that its display has a 3:2 aspect ratio. Most Chromebooks are equipped with a 16:9 display, so they are great for watching video content, but if you need to do any work on them, it’s not ideal. The display on the Spin 713 is also bright and clear, with a pixel density of 200 pixels per inch. A taller screen also means you can get a touchpad that is more spacious than a regular Chromebook. Combine it with a sturdy keyboard, a powerful processor, and the right amount of RAM for Chrome OS, and you have a sturdy device. In addition to the average battery life, one of our few complaints about the Spin 713 is the asking price. At $619, this is a better value.
