Acer did users a solid by upping the storage of the latest model to 256GB which is a fair amount even for a “premium” Chromebook. The only thing this Chromebook is missing is a fingerprint sensor. Sadly, the one we unboxed has this piece of hardware but we were informed that the retail version found at Best Buy would omit this feature. Still, at $699, you’d be hard-pressed to find a Chromebook with these features and this much horsepower. This is a $70 bump from the 10th Gen model but seriously, this Chromebook will chew through anything you throw at it and look great doing it with its crispy 3:2 display.
It’s no surprise to see the all-new Spin on sale but I am a bit shocked to see this steep of a discount this early out of the gate. Best Buy has knocked $80 off of the Spin 713 with brings the price down to ten dollars less than the retail price of last year’s model. At $619, you will not find a better overall value in a Chromebook right now. I suspect that this deal won’t last more than a day or two so you may want to grab one before they’re gone. Check it out over at Best Buy.
