Acer Swift 3 (2021)

 

The Acer Swift 3 has long been one of the best mid-range laptops money can buy, and this 2021 edition brings with it some noteworthy upgrades.

Well-built design ; Beefy performance ; Generous SSD capacity

Arguably uninspiring design ; Patchy keyboard backlight

The Acer Swift 3 is a brilliant mid-range laptop that performs well for the price. It has a well-built design, features a beefy Ryzen 5500U processor and a rather quick 1TB SSD underneath that should make day-to-day working a breeze. Just watch out for...

Acer Swift 3 (2022) review: The best affordable compact laptop

 

Affordable, compact, well made and with an excellent display, the latest Acer Swift 3 has no real weaknesses

Excellent display ; Slim, light metal body ; Good battery life

No card reader ; Limited upgrade options ; 11th-gen Core i5 chip

The new Acer Swift 3 is a highly impressive combination of high quality and low price. For under £600, you’re getting a well-made, compact all-metal laptop with a very good display and plenty of fringe benefits like a fingerprint reader, a backlit...

Acer Swift 3 OLED review: a great package with one thing missing

 

The last Acer Swift 3 I reviewed was an affordable, AMD-powered student laptop. It was respectable all around but not a standout in any particular area.

Great performance for the price ; 16:10 OLED display with HDR ; Lovely keyboard ; Useful port selection

Disappointing battery life ; Chassis can feel flimsy ; Comes with bloatware ; Fan can get loud

The case for the Acer Swift 3 is: It is one of the most powerful laptops, with one of the best screens you can get, available in the $1,200 range. With a portable build, it can be a great choice for both multimedia viewing and demanding work on the go....

Acer Swift 3 OLED Review

 

Stellar OLED 16:10 display ; Crisp 1080p webcam ; Sturdy all-aluminum chassis ; Strong media-work performance ; Quiet operation

A bit bulky for an ultraportable ; Limited battery life ; Low contrast between keys and key symbols ; No privacy shutter for webcam

Acer's OLED-screen update of its Swift 3 ultraportable is a high-powered 14-incher best suited for media creators willing to trade off battery life for processing punch.
