Expert review by : Joshua Goldman (cnet.com)

Acer made a cheap laptop that looks good and lasts all day long

 

What the Swift 1 lacks in performance it makes up for in battery life, good looks and a low price.

The Acer Swift 1 is a thin, lightweight budget-friendly laptop that has a few higher-end features that make it a more attractive deal than competing systems at its $329 price. Battery life is good at more than 9 hours.

Its low-end components mean it can't do much beyond basics and its limited storage will likely require some external option.

The Swift 1 is cheap, looks nice and has a good battery -- just don't give it anything more difficult to do than web browsing.

Nice and compact

 

"Very easy to use. Small and slim and very light. Does everything I need for home. It did crash after 5 days but easily sorted by pressing the off button. I can navigate easily around the key pad. Great for basic stuff."

Great Laptop for the Money

 

"Battery and Weight are a real plus with the laptop. I only use it for simple tasks (web, email, Word, Powerpoint etc). It does all this really well, no need for a £1000 machine."
