In our Acer Chromebook Spin 713 review, we loved its gorgeous screen, sturdy build and performance power. We were also impressed by its battery life which lasted 10 and a half hours in our Laptop Mag battery test. We gave Chromebook Spin 713 a rating of 4 out of 5 stars and our Editor's Choice award. 

Our review unit's Intel Core i5-10210U 4-core CPU had no issues juggling multiple tasks at once. We hit it with 20+ open Chrome tabs — some running YouTube and Facebook videos while various apps ran in the background. It didn't even flinch.
