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

 

Don't be deceived – this laptop is better than it looks

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

Boring looks ; Down-firing speakers

Focused on delivering the best performance for the lowest price, the worst part about the Acer Swift 3 is that all of its best qualities may very well go unnoticed.

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

 

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.

Acer Swift 3 SF314-51-731X Notebook Review

 

Popular companion. High-quality materials coupled with responsive hardware leave a good impression. Even though the display luminance does not seem very up-to-date, we like the overall package of the new Acer Swift 3.

Solid chassis ; good input devices ; system performance ; low temperature and noise development

SD performance ; shocking WLAN performance (maybe defective test model) ; memory not expandable ; no maintenance hatches ; dark display

Acer's Swift 3 is a successful entry in the subnotebook segment. It is covered in a sophisticated aluminum chassis that does not cause a lot of criticism. Only the access for maintenance works could have been easier. The input devices were surprisingly...

Acer Swift 3 Review and Ratings

 

The Swift 3 is an affordable mainstream laptop that offers a decent set of features in a thin, portable package. But as you might expect, it's not without its compromises.

Slick design for the price ; Decent mainstream-apps performance ; Reasonably priced for feature set

Not the brightest of screens ; Muffled sound ; Slightly limited storage space

The Acer Swift 3, in the form we tested it, is a midrange laptop that demonstrates the compromises we often have to make when shopping for a laptop. Are there faster systems available? Sure. Are there lighter, cheaper, or better-equipped ones?...

Acer Swift SF 314 2-in1

 

The aluminium housing is superb - it looks awesome and so lightweight. The keyboard is very easy to use and has a good response. Incredibly quick to boot up and open programs. Beautiful display
