Acer Swift 5 (2019) initial review: Now with discrete graphics


Slim, light, with a new design to make for more comfortable typing. Now the Swift 5 also introduces discrete graphics up to Nvidia GeForce MX250 too.

With a new hinge design, optional discrete graphics and powerful Intel Core i processors, this lightweight laptop delivers strong on the specs-to-price ratio. The build quality and trackpad isn't perfect, and we doubt battery life will be great, but as...

Acer Swift 5 review


So light, but plenty functional

Incredibly light ; Bright display ; Crisp speakers

Middling battery life ; Flimsy screen ; Somewhat cheap feel

The new Acer Swift 5 packs work-ready power into an incredibly light chassis that still fits a brilliant, 15.6-inch display. It has a strong value proposition that makes it worth considering against even the best laptops.

Acer Swift 5 (2019) review: Punching well above its weight


The Acer Swift 5 may be one of the lightest 14in laptops on the market but it punches well above its weight

Puts the ultra in ultraportable ; Solid performance ; Decent screen

Disappointing battery life ; Downward-facing speakers

There are some flaws. Battery life is a little disappointing and SSD performance is a little slower than I’d like but if you’re looking for a strong all-round ultraportable with great connectivity options, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the Swift...

Acer Swift 5 (2019): Hands on with the “world’s lightest” 14in laptop


Acer has unveiled the new Swift 5 at IFA 2019 – a supremely light laptop that packs one heck of a punch

Starting at €899 for the entry-level model, and reaching €1,199 for the variant equipped with all the bells and whistles, the new Swift 5 also manages to undercut the rest of the market by a wide margin, putting those Apple- and Microsoft-branded...

Acer Swift 5 review: Perfect portability in a well-rounded package


Acer's Swift 5 offers plenty of bang for your buck, though its Marmite-like design is a potential turn-off

Well-priced ; Decent battery life ; Generously sized display

Bizarre design

My only complaint is that its bizarre mishmash of a design won’t be to everyone’s tastes; it looks clunky next to the sleek unibody design of its Swift 7 sibling. Overall though Acer’s Swift 5 perfectly straddles the line between portability and...
