“With a svelte design and a durable aluminum case, it’s the ideal Chromebook to take on the go for school, passion projects, work, and more,” said Acer in a press release.

The Chromebook comes with a MediaTek Kompanio 1380 processor with eight cores, which should prove more than powerful enough to keep the Chromebook running smoothly.

The real interesting thing about the Acer Chromebook Spin 513 is the 13.5-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio. Using this instead of 16:9 gives you 18% more vertical screen space, which can help enhance productivity. It also comes with a high 2256×1504 resolution.

Another thing that makes this Chromebook worth a look is the build quality. Acer promises military-grade MIL-STD 810H durability, so this laptop can take a beating and keep going. Durability can be an issue when you get a convertible laptop like this, so it’s nice that Acer took steps to make sure its computer could handle what life throws at it.

The Acer Chromebook Spin 513 comes with a $599.99 price tag, which is solid for what it brings to the table.
