You may be surprised to discover that the best-selling entry level laptop on Amazon is not an Apple MacBook or a Samsung Galaxy Book.
Instead the Acer Chromebook Spin 311 has more five star reviews than any other device and it’s currently reduced by 20 percent to just $199.99.
A feature the Spin 311 boasts that a MacBook doesn’t have is a 360 degree hinge that allows you to easily transfer it into a laptop with a keyboard when you need to use it for work or school or prop itself up when you’re watching movies. There’s no need to purchase a separate stand and you can rest it at whatever angle you want.
At first glance it looks and performs like a regular laptop. But when you look closer at the features you’ll see its ultra-lightweight, weighing the same as an A4 sheet of paper.
The screen can fold down flat and back on itself if you want to use it as a tablet and the wide-angle camera makes it perfect for video calls.

It’s lighter than most other laptops and even tablets too. At just 0.79 inches thin and weighing 2.62 lbs, this Acer Chromebook is smaller than a sheet of A4 paper
Whether you’re using it for work or play, you’ll notice that it has a strong Wi-Fi connection that doesn’t drop so you won’t lose your Zoom meeting signal halfway through or get interrupted during a key moment in a movie.
This is down to Intel Gigabit Wi-Fi 5 and strategically placed 802.11ac wireless antenna that offer faster wireless speeds.
The Acer Chromebook Spin 311 makes an excellent first laptop for children as they can use it as a touchscreen tablet until they’re ready for a keyboard. Gorilla glass renders it un-smashable
Even the touch screen is advanced and perfect for those who are accident prone, those who take it out and about a lot or children using their first Chromebook.
It’s made from strong Gorilla Glass to make it resistant to cracks and breaking plus it has an antimicrobial coating so your fingerprints don’t stick to it. You’ll appreciate having a clear view for your favorite movies and box sets without fingerprints obscuring the view.
