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!
BEST VIDEO GAME FRANCHISES OVER THE YEARS
Ever since gaming has reached the digital age, there have spawned numerous titles and franchises across the globe. While some were just one-trick ponies or got lost in the sands of time, there were others who cemented their names in history as some of the best video games. These also led to the rise of multiple franchises, who have since gone on to become multibillion-dollar industries in themselves. Following is a list of such video game franchises who have only grown bigger as the years have passed:
