In our Acer Chromebook Spin 514 review, we praise its solid performance and durable 2-in-1 design. Although it lacks Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, its wide selection of ports makes up for it. 

During one test, we flooded it with 30 to 40 Chrome browser tabs, some of which were streaming 1080p YouTube videos. Even with an image editor running in the background, the Chromebook Spin 514 never broke sweat. 

Connectivity-wise, the Chromebook Spin 514 doesn't skimp on selection. It has two USB 3.2 Type-C ports, a USB 3.2 Type-A port, and an HDMI port which you rarely find on a Chromebook. You also get a headphone/mic combo jack and microSD slot for connecting audio storage expansion. 

With a weight of 3.6 pounds and 12.7 x 8.9 x 0.7 inches, the Chromebook Spin 514 is a fairly portable 14 inch laptop. It's slightly heavier than the HP Spectre x360 14 ( 3 pounds, 11.8 x 8.7 x 0.7 inches), Lenovo Yoga 9i (3 pounds, 12.6 x 8.5 x 0.6 inches). 

Now just $289, the Acer Chromebook Spin 514 is an incredible value if you're on the hunt for an affordable 2-in-1 laptop.
