I’m a sucker for bargains.

I’ve got several laptops and several tablets but I haven’t really ever had a TOUCH laptop.

When this Acer Spin 1 came up for $149, I just couldn’t resist it.

It has:

  • Processor: Intel® Pentium® Silver N5000 Quad-Core (Up to 2.7GHz)
  • Display: 11.6" HD (1366 x 768) Widescreen LED-backlit Multi-Touch
  • 4GB LPDDR4 Onboard Memory
  • Hard Drive: 64GB eMMC
  • Audio: Two Built-in Stereo Speakers
  • Built-In Digital Microphone
  • Ports: 1 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB 2.0, 1 x HDMI® 2.0 port with HDCP support, 1 x 3.5mm combo jack (headphone/speaker), 1 x DC-in jack for AC adapter
  • Webcam: Webcam (640 x 480)
  • Wireless: Intel Wireless-AC 9560 802.11ac Gigabit WiFi which can deliver up to 1.73Gbps throughput when using 160Mhz channels (Dual-Band 2.4GHz and 5GHz)
  • Up to 10 Hours Battery Life
  • Bluetooth 5.0
  • Dimensions: 11.46" (W) x 7.95" (D) x 0.67" (H)
  • Weight: 2.76 lbs
  • Graphics: Intel® UHD Graphics 605 supporting Microsoft® DirectX® 12

I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro and installed Microsoft Office 2016 Pro.

I wish it had a fingerprint reader. I wish it used USB C charging.

But for $149!
