In our Acer Chromebook Spin 514 review, we were impressed by its solid performance and durable 2-in-1 design. Although we thought the display could be brighter and it lacks Wi-Fi 6, its wide selection of ports is a welcome attribute.

During real-world testing, we flooded it with 30 to 40 Chrome browser tabs, some of which streamed 1080p YouTube videos. Even with an image editor running in the background, the Chromebook Spin 514 didn't break a sweat. 

In our lab, it achieved a score of 2,792 in the Geekbench 5 overall performance test. This beats the scores of the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 (2,163) and HP Chromebook x360 14c (1,741). 

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. 

In a nutshell, the Chromebook Spin 514 is worth considering if you want a convertible PC for day-to-day use. And at $200 off, it's an incredible value.
