Acer Chromebook Spin 511 R752TN-C5P0 (NX.HPXEG.001) in the test
Good, but unspectacular Chromebook! The Acer Chromebook Spin 511 doesn’t do much wrong. The test also shows that highlights are in short supply. The very sturdy Chromebook offers a good average with no outliers in the positive or negative.
Acer Chromebook Spin 511 R752TN Review & Specification
Handling and display are quite successful and the performance and the battery are okay. In terms of equipment, however, it could have been a bit more, for example display connections are missing. The price is cheap, but there are better models that cost even less.
Acer Chromebook Spin 511 R752TN-C5P0 Review: Measurement results and impressions
Basically, the Acer Chromebook Spin 511 does well in the test. It is nice that there are no serious weaknesses. It’s a shame that it doesn’t have any really good buying arguments either. Even the low price of around 490 euros is undercut by similarly good or better models from our list of the best.
The performance is good and reaches 8,834 points in the benchmark. The battery is also okay with its 38 watt hours. The power is enough for surfing for almost 11 hours, for streaming YouTube videos a good 8 hours.
The 11.6 inch display has a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels, reacts to touch and can be tilted 360 degrees to function as a tablet. The reflective surface together with a brightness of 233 cd/m² make it only conditionally useful for outdoor use.
The checkerboard contrast is okay, but the color space coverage (sRGB: 70 percent, Adobe: 52 percent) has room for improvement. Viewing videos and photos is much more fun with other models.
