Acer Swift 3 Review | Trusted Reviews


Acer Swift 3 2017 review: A mid-range thin and light laptop with good performance, but it's not as good as its cheaper predecessor.

Quality, all-metal design ; Backlit keyboard ; Decent performance ; Good touchpad

Mediocre screen quality for the money ; Reflective screen isn't bright enough ; More expensive than predecessor

Acer Swift 3


Acer's range of Swift laptops is available in four flavours: the range-topping Swift 7, the mid-tier Swift 5 the cheaper Swift 3 and the budget Swift 1. Don't let the latter's standing against its siblings put you off, though. The Swift 3 includes...

Powerful for the price Stellar battery life Plenty of ports Killer keyboard and trackpad

Boring looks Down-firing speakers

Focused on generating the greatest performance at the lowest price, the worst part about the Acer Swift 3 is that all of its best features might very well fly under the radar.

Acer Swift 3 review


Acer has done it again. This latest ultraportable offers much of what you'd want from a premium model at a bargain price. Here's our Acer Swift 3 review

The Acer Swift 3 is a near-perfect laptop for those who want an ultraportable, but don’t want to fork out £1000+. Build quality is great, battery life very good, and performance a match for much more expensive laptops. There are just two areas where...

Acer Swift 3 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Acer Swift 3 is a stylish 14-inch laptop. It's modern, too, with a USB-C port and fingerprint reader for security. So far, so good. But to compete with the best laptops on test, it needs a long battery life, be easy to use and have a decent screen....

Acer Swift 3 SF314-41 review: Cheap but hardly cheerful


An underwhelming device that looks the part but struggles to perform beyond the very basics

Inexpensive; Sturdy build; Appealing finish

Uninspired display; Sluggish performance; Bulkier than its rivals

The Acer Swift 3 may seem a decent choice if you’re running on a tight budget, but it fails to impress on several fronts. Its performance is middling at best for most day-to-day tasks but far too easily breaks a sweat when pushed, while its...

Acer Swift 3 review: a capable all-rounder


The Swift 3 isn't going to knock your socks off, but it's still a solid mid-range performer

Attractive chassis; Well-designed keyboard and trackpad; Good value

Cons: Performance and battery life are middling; Less than fabulous display

The Acer Swift 3 is an excellent mid-range notebook. Its performance isn’t going to blow anyone away but, for £500, it’s a very capable all-rounder. The fact that it’s eye-catching and well-designed is just icing on the cake.

Acer Swift 3 review


The Acer Swift 3 packs flagship 8th-gen performance into a budget-friendly PC.

Speedy 8th-gen performance ; Plenty of connectivity ; Solid keyboard ; 1080p display looks true to life ; Great SSD for the price

Boring design aesthetic ; Display is dim, with poor contrast ; Mediocre battery life
