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...

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 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

Acer Swift 3

 

The 14-inch Acer Swift 3 is a well-rounded ultraportable laptop at a moderate price, with solid port selection and strong battery life that offset a merely average screen.

Classy aluminum design. Windows Hello fingerprint reader. Perky performance from Core i5 CPU and PCIe SSD. Good battery life.

Limited screen brightness. Shallow keyboard with small, crowded cursor control keys.

As you can tell, there's a lot to like about the Acer Swift 3. Our only real gripes are with the keyboard's cursor cluster, which you can master with a little practice, and the slightly dim display, which we don't want to overemphasize. If we don't...

A partly premium and totally affordable laptop

 

The Acer Swift 3 is a stylish and affordably priced laptop that has a lot of ports and connections.

The Acer Swift 3 is a stylish and affordable laptop. Unlike a lot of current laptops, it has lots of ports and connections.

The shallow keyboard isn’t great for typing. The display is dim and the speakers are weak. Battery life is short.

The Acer Swift 3 is a budget laptop with an impressive all-metal design, but it skimps on some features you might find important.
