The Acer Aspire E 15 continues to be one of the best laptop values out there, packing a speedy Intel Core i3 processor and close to 9 hours of battery life into an affordable $379 package. It's also one of the rare laptops with a DVD drive, packs in tons of useful ports, and offers an impressively sharp 1080p display for the price.
Acer may have the thin-and-light game on lock. With the Predator Triton 500, gamers get a seriously portable system that offers a great mix of graphics and overall power. And thanks to the Turbo option, you can squeeze even more power out of the GPU. In addition to that aggressive svelteness, you get a solid display and a comfortable keyboard.
The Acer Spin 5 has a great display, a comforatble keyboard, and, perhaps most importantly, is relatively affordable. It has Intel's 8th Gen Intel Core i5 CPu, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, so the performance is solid, and the chassis is real metal as opposed to plastic with a coat of paint on it. Those who need a bit more power can get it with a Core i7 CPU.
The 1080p display in the Spin 1 (which starts at $329) proves that budget 2-in-1 notebooks don't need to pack the low-res 1366 x 768-pixel panels they're burdened with all-too-often. The all-metal convertible's also both thin and light, weighing 2.76 pounds and measuring 0.55 inches thick. Its internal specs don't surprise, though, as it packs Pentium or Celeron CPUs and 4GB of RAM.
Acer has entered the premium Chromebook arena in style with the Acer Chromebook 13, which packs powerful Intel U-series performance and a crisp 2256 x 1504 display into a slick aluminum chassis. The Chromebook 13 stays cool and comfortable when juggling a multitude of tasks, and its 8-hour battery life will get you through the workday.
Acer took what it learned from making uber-slim, lightweight laptops and applied it to the Swift 5, creating the lightest 15-inch laptop ever. To hold the 2.2-pound system in your hand is a mind-boggling experience. But the Swift 5 is more than a barely-there chassis, bringing a vibrant 1080p display and solid battery life to the party. You also get a solid performance from the Core i5 CPU and integrated graphics. If you're looking for the ultimate in portability, you'll be hard-pressed to beat the Acer Swift 5.
