The difference lies in the processor model, Acer Chromebook Spin 713 has an Intel Core i7-10th generation processor whereas the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook has an Intel Core i3-10th generation processor.

Both these processors can give you a good experience but the Acer Spin 713 having a much more powerful processor is slightly ahead of Galaxy Chromebook in terms of processing power. 

2. RAM 

The maximum ram both Chromebooks can have is the same as the other which is 8GB.

Acer Chromebook APin 713 comes by default with 8GB RAM with no choice to configure it. However, the Samsung Chromebook 2 comes in two variations which give you the option to choose 4GB or 8GB RAM for your Chromebook.

If you compare both these laptops with RAM, they are almost similar to each other. Both these can have a maximum of 8GB RAM. 

3. SSD 

The Acer Spin 713 again has a default 128 GB SSD which can’t be configured while buying whereas the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 allows you to select two storage options that are either 64GB or 128GB SSD which is again the same as Spin 713.

So there is no difference in SSD comparison in these two Chromebooks as you can get both of thee in 128GB SSD. 

4. Display 

The Acer Spin 713 has a 13.5″ LCD which has a maximum resolution of 2256 x 1504 which is more than FHD. however, the Samsung galaxy Chromebook 2 has a 13.3″ QLED display which has a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 or you can say FHD.

5. Size and Weight 

These two Chromebooks are thin and have a slight difference in their thickness.

The Acer Chromebook Spin 713 is 16.8 mm thin whereas the Galaxy Chromebook 2 is only 13.9 mm thin. If you ask what is a good thickness, these two Chromebooks are above that as their thickness is less than 20mm.

Acer Spin 713 weighs around 3 pounds and the Samsung galaxy Chromebook 2 weighs slightly lower which is 2.7 pounds.

So if you talk about their size and weight there is not that much difference as both these Chromebooks share almost similar numbers in terms of size and weight.  

6. Battery Life 

As claimed by their official manufacturers, the Acer Spin 713 can have a maximum battery life of up to 10 hours whereas the s Samsung galaxy Chromebook can run for up to 13 hours on one single charge.

But as I always say these are just numbers, actual usage may vary in real life.
