Acer Spin 5 (2022): Two Minute Preview

The Acer Spin 5 (2022) is the successor to one of the best 2-in-1 laptops out there and from what we’ve seen so far, it’s sure to continue the Spin 5 legacy.

We’ve previewed an early pre-production unit of the Spin 5, so we’ll need to see an actual production unit before we can comment specifically on the performance stats against its predecessor or its competitors. Still, the new Intel Alder Lake processor is definitely a snappy little CPU that chews productivity tasks and general computer work with ease.
