Acer’s Chromebook Spin 513 might be more expensive than we thought

  • by

Acer’s best Chromebooks you can buy right now, including the excellent Spin 713. The only downside of the laptop is its price. $630 isn’t the most expensive Chrome OS device we’ve ever seen, but it’s definitely on the top. Spin 513 was announced last fall. It is designed as a more affordable alternative to the 713. The laptop was expected to go on sale in North America in February, but this new Chromebook was first listed in an Acer store. – Higher than expected price

Add two different Spin 513 models to the company’s website, first discovering Chromebook information. Both versions have pretty much the same specs, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c processor, a 13.3-inch 1080p display and 64GB of storage. The only difference between the two configurations is the RAM. Double that at $479 for a laptop with 4GB of memory, and $499 for a model with 8GB of RAM. It’s a surprisingly small price difference between the two that can significantly improve performance.

Neither version offers 4G LTE connectivity. This is a selling point that Acer pushed hard in last year’s announcement. However, the store page still advertises “optional 4G”, so additional models may be released. More interestingly, the Spin 513’s $399 price, which was announced last fall, is also missing. Instead, you’ll have to pay about $100 more than expected to buy this Chromebook. Cheaper models (perhaps with 16GB or 32GB of storage) may appear in the future, but for now, $479 is the starting price.

Both versions of the Chromebook Flip 513 have a ‘Buy Now’ button in the Acer Store, but no retailers are available to order from. It won’t be long, given that the North American launch was planned two months ago.
