For many, the Pixelbook is still the quintessential Chromebook. While I agree that its design and functionality represent the best of the best on the market, my personal machine of choice is still the Acer Chromebook Spin 13. I can’t really explain what makes it the device for me. It really boils down to personal preference, I suppose.
Any way you slice it, the Acer does have some distinct advantages over the Pixelbook. You get a garaged stylus included with the Spin 13 the Core i5-8250U processor far outperforms even the mobile Core i7 found in the $1600 Pixelbook. Speaking of price, that’s another great advantage of the Spin 13.
At MSRP, the Core i5 Spin with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage will run you $899. That’s a good chunk of change but you’re still getting a device that offers a ton of bang for the buck. Still, deals are great and right now you can score some serious savings on the Acer Chromebook Spin 13. A number of Amazon sellers currently have this particular version of the Spin 13 on sale in the impressive range of $670-$690. That’s a savings of more than $200 and gets you one of the most powerful, versatile and in my opinion, aesthetically pleasing devices on the market.
