The Spin 514's 360-degree convertible design boasts "military-grade durability" along with aluminum covers for both the top and bottom of the device for improved physical protection. Inside that frame is a 14-inch Full HD multi-touch IPS display made with Gorilla Glass (also used for the touchpad) for another layer of sturdiness. There's a built-in Full HD webcam as well, which Acer says can reduce flare, along with dual microphones and a pair of upward-facing speakers.

Acer Chromebook Enterprise Spin 514


As for the Enterprise Spin 514, it's largely the same hardware—except that it's more specifically tailored for business use. Acer says it puts "the business capabilities of Chrome OS" at the forefront and is intended to be a fast, secure, cost-effective work tool that's amenable to cloud-based collaboration.

Both the Acer Chromebook Spin 514 and the Chromebook Enterprise Spin 514 are expected to launch in the US in the third quarter of 2022 (roughly sometime in July through September). You'll be able to find the Spin 514 starting at $579.99, while the Enterprise Spin 514 starts at $899.99.
