Ultra-thin, ultra-light and ultra-stylish: the Spin 1 is perfect for anyone looking to get creative on the go
At the recently concluded Computex 2017 held in Taipei, Taiwan, Acer nnounced the latest version of its popular Spin 1 convertible notebook. With a sleek all-metal chassis, the Windows 10 device is lightweight, portable and supports Windows Ink through an Acer Active Stylus1 for creative users on the go.

To help with more complex projects, the Spin 1 is fully ready to work with the Acer Active Stylus  accessory which enables precise and direct on-screen input, providing a natural pen-on-paper experience. Users can quickly turn thoughts into action, capture ideas swiftly and naturally with Windows Ink.
