Acer’s powerful Chromebook Spin 714 is a whopping $200 off

There’s no denying that Acer knows ChromeOS. For years, the PC giant has been producing some of the best devices on the market and the company’s Chromebook resume is one of the largest of any OEM. For the past few years, Acer has offered what I consider one of the best consumer flagship Chromebooks in the form of its Spin 713/714 family that’s available directly from Best Buy. Featuring the latest Core i5 U-series processors from Intel, the Chromebook Spin convertible has seen a few iterations with each new model making subtle but solid improvements over the previous year’s device.

The latest iterating turned away from the popular 13.5″ 3:2 panel in favor of a 14″ 16:10 display that has grown in popularity among ChromeOS users over the past couple of years. The Acer Chromebook Spin 714 keeps that bright, crispy panel and aluminum chassis while bringing back the garaged stylus that was found on the 713 model released back in 2019. This version, however, uses a rechargeable USI pen that can be used with any USI compatible device and it stows away discreetly in the front of the keyboard deck.
