ACER SPIN 5
Advait Berde

I have always been a fan of convertibles. Be it cars or gadgets, anything that has a 2-in1 quality always catches my attention. Among those is the Acer Spin 5 laptop, which I recently reviewed. Now, I wouldn’t be talking about this laptop if it was just a run-of-the-mill laptop. But, there are certain elements of this laptop that I could not miss out on. So, without further ado, here is what I think about the Acer Spin 5.

+

THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE LAPTOP IS OBVIOUSLY ITS 360-DEGREE HINGE THAT CONVERTS THE LAPTOP TO A TABLET SEAMLESSLY. THIS GIVES THE USER A GREAT DEAL OF VERSATILITY AND THAT WILL DEFINITELY HELP GRAPHIC DESIGNERS, STUDENTS, AND EVEN TABLET LOVERS!

IN-GAME VEHICLES WE WISH WERE REAL

Videogames never fail to transport us to a world that is far beyond our reach, yet controllable by the tips of our fingers (quite literally). While open-world games offer a vast, new lifestyle to explore, they also give us a taste of some unique vehicles. Well, calling them vehicles would be an understatement as these perform so many more tasks than just commute, but they’re some uber-cool pieces of machinery nevertheless. That said, here are some of the coolest in-game vehicles that we would love to test-ride!
