Review: Acer Aspire 5 Spin 14 Laptop

User Rating: 8.5

The Acer Aspire 5 Spin 14 is a convertible laptop, featuring a lightweight design, improved performance with 13th-generation Intel processor, and more. We got a chance to review the product and here are our thoughts about the laptop.


The Aspire Spin series laptops are known for their thin-and-light convertible chassis for those who want to take their productive tasks on the go. The device is only 17.99mm thick and weighs only 1.6kg. The 14-inch IPS touchscreen display features a screen resolution of 1920 x 1200 and the 16:10 screen ratio helps cover more details on the screen while browsing or reading. The touchscreen display also comes with Acer BlueLightShield to reduce the effects of Blue Light.

The laptop also offers a decent array of connectivity options. This includes one USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port on the left, an HDMI port, a USB-C port with support for power delivery, and the main AC power connection. The USB-C port can transfer at 40Gbps speeds, along with support for Thunderbolt 4 connectivity, and DisplayPort connections.

The right side includes a 3.5mm audio jack, another USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, and a slot that houses the stylus pen. The active stylus that comes with the laptop, is rechargeable when placed in the slot, and it features the same Steel Grey color as the main chassis.

The Aspire 5 Spin 14 has a backlit keyboard that is comfortable to type on. The touchpad isn’t very spacious, but it does support multi-gestures. The touchpad is moisture-resistant, and there is a fingerprint scanner, located on the upper-left side of the touchpad.

There are exhaust air vents on the rear side. On the outer lid, there is the Acer logo on the upper end, and the Aspire branding on the bottom side. Acer has also placed extra air vents on the bottom panel, along with dual speakers on the left and right sides.


Powering the Acer Aspire 5 Spin 14 is the Intel i7-1355U, a 10-core processor with eight power-efficient cores and two performance cores, along with the addition of 12 computing threads. The maximum Turbo frequency is 5GHz. The system also sports 16GB LPDDR5 RAM, and a Micron NVMe SSD with Windows 11 Home installed.

The processor also houses the integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics with 1GB of RAM allotted for video memory. The laptop performed well while we browsed the internet and did some office-based productivity work. We ran the Futuremark benchmarks such as PCMark 10 Extended, 3DMark FireStrike and TimeSpy, and GeekBench 6 CPU and GPU tests. Take a look at the scores below.


The laptop also comes with a 3-cell Lithium Ion 50 Wh battery. For testing the battery performance, we ran the PCMark 10 Modern Office Battery test. The laptop was able to last for 10 hours and 53 minutes. Other features of the laptop include Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity and IEEE 802.11ax-based wireless internet connections.


The Acer Aspire 5 Spin 14 is a lightweight convertible laptop that features a stylish design and weighs about 1.6kg. The 14-inch IPS display has a touchscreen panel, 1920 x 1200 as the screen resolution, and 16:10 aspect ratio. The laptop does come with a stylus pen for touchscreen productivity. Connectivity options include two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, one USB-C port, and an HDMI port.

The laptop is powered by the 10-core Intel i7-1355U processor, along with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD with Windows 11 Home. The performance is snappy for personal and business usage. The laptop has a 3-cell Lithium Ion 50 Wh battery that should be able to last for almost a day of use.
