The notebook will also offer up to 32GB of RAM and a PCI-E SSD for ultra-fast transfer speeds.


The Acer Spin 1 convertible boasts a metal body and runs on the latest Celeron and Pentium processors from Intel. It also includes 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of eMMC storage. The convertible comes with an 11.6-inch display offering 1080p Full HD resolution and touch support. Acer claims the Spin 1 can deliver up to eight hours of battery life.
