This features same display and same design like SP315-51-35DZ model but differs in processor and RAM. Lets see the general review of Acer Spin 3 (SP315-51-53C7).

Design of this laptop is similar to other Acer Spin 3 laptops. Simple design which looks more like a normal everyday laptop. This laptop weighs around 4.74 lbs and is about 0.89 inches thin. You will feel little heaviness while using in tablet mode. Backlit keyboard is a great addon for this convertible. You can type even in dark environments. Overall, this laptop design is simple and attractive.

One of the best spec for this laptop is its display. Getting a Full HD display in a convertible laptop priced around $500 is a good deal for buyers. Most of the convertibles under $500 doesn't have a Full HD display resolution at the time of this review. With that Full HD display, you can enjoy even more brighter and sharper images and videos because of Acer Color Intelligence technology. This Acer display technology will enhance the color quality to give you the best display experience. Overall, this is the best display to get for the price.
