Acer’s IFA 2016 presentation in Berlin has been capturing tech headlines as of late, given the number of impressive new devices the company unveiled earlier. Add the Acer Spin 7 to the highlights, and it’s the company’s newest convertible, touted as the “world’s thinnest 2-in-1” device. Other Acer Spin variants are expected to launch alongside the Spin 7 too.

At 10.98mm thin, the Spin 7 is indeed one of the thinnest 2-in-1s yet. Combined with Acer’s aesthetic design and hefty internals, the Spin 7 is one stylish and powerful convertible to behold. The lack of non-USB-C ports is an worrisome feature though.

The Acer Spin 7 will start at $1,199 (~Php 56K) when it’s released in October.

  1. Meron naman Type C to Type A adaptor cables. kaya lang you have to buy it separately.

    One of the reasons why type C connectors are more desireable to use in mobile gadgets is that some manufacturers want to do away with the 3.5mm jack used for audio. It’s the only thing now that keeps the phone getting thin.

    Type C has still a long way to go. Most of our devices (power banks, tablets, etc) need the type A or B (whatever version of it) micro USB connectors to power up or transfer data. Type C connectors have 24 pins and reversible at that. And can do much more than the older types. However, care should be taken since it has a lot of pins and these pins are very closely placed beside each other. One should be buying the best quality type C cables or otherwise you’ll end up frying your gadgets.

    Dami pang ka-ek-ekan ang type C. Kailangan may circuitry pa na mag co-control ng mga traffic sa pins. pag ito ang nasira, balewala na rin ang type C port. In my opinion, dapat ung connector type na hindi kailangan ng additional circuitry ang gawing latest standard. I don’t agree that type C will be the latest standard. Not even Apple’s lightning on iOS 7. Una, gastos yan sa cables. Mahal ang mga type C cables. Well, akin lang naman opinion ito, bahala na ang mga international standards committee.
