Acer spin 1

Want to get a basic 2 in 1 laptop that can
1. Surfing internet
2. Online meeting/learning via zoom/skype
3. Basic ms word/PowerPoint
4. Write on the screen
5. Ability to write on screen for online teaching via zoom/skype

Does Acer Spin 1 meets the needs above?
Please advise.

Thanks!!!

You should share your budget.

While Acer Spin 1 is not that expensive and seems to work for your use case, it is not cheap for its very low end specs. Its got a touchscreen, but I don't think it is a good one. Perhaps you can consider getting an iPad of Android tablet depending on your budget.

Thanks for the advice! Yeah...am also thinking of iPad 7th...now with your advice, it further convince me that tablet is a better choice.

Thanks again!

Take a look here:
https://www.lazada.sg/products/acer-...551uAlss2&mp=1

$668 for the following specs:
Intel® Pentium® Silver N5000 Processor (up to 2.7 GHz, 4 MB L2 cache)
Windows 10 in S Mode
11.6" FHD IPS Multi-Touch Display with Active Stylus support
Intel® HD Graphics 605
4GB DDR4 RAM, 128GB eMMC
Intel® Wireless-AC with Gigabit Wi-Fi, supporting 2x2 MU-MIMO
Built-in webcam
1.25kg
290 (W) x 200 (D) x 14.1 (H) mm (11.42 x 7.87 x 0.56 inches)
1 Year Carry-In Local Singapore Warranty

Input and Outputs:
microSD card (SDXC compatible)
HDMI port
Headphone/speaker jack
USB 3.0 port
USB 2.0 port

What’s in the box:
1 x Acer Spin 1 SP111-34N-P9C9 Laptop
1 x Active Stylus Pen

3. https://www.ultrabookreview.com/1857...spin-1-review/

Review 3's model is closest to what you can get in Singapore...

My take:
1. Pretty good value. It has a full HD IPS screen, stylus, and metal build.
2. 4GB RAM is a bit iffy. 8GB would be better. I don't think you can add on aftermaket. Probably only 1 RAM slot. The original 4GB RAM piece is soldered onto the motherboard.
3. Not the most accomplished but on a budget, this is probably the best you can get for a touchscreen that takes a stylus and does it properly. Good enough for doing homework on it.

Hope this helps you!

EDIT: A laptop is always more versatile than a tablet, whether Android or iOS. Also wait for discounts - National Day would see some discounts. A 20% discount would make this a real bargain. And you might get MS Office 2019 thrown in for Education purchases during promotions. Also check Shopee.
