If you are looking to become more mobile with your laptop computer but afraid of giving up to much screen real estate the all new Acer Swift 3 SF314-52-52V8 might be a good compromise. It features a 14 inch display which helps make the unit more compact but isn’t an overwhelming drop from a standard 15.6 inch model. Today we will review some of the benefits and downsides of this new Acer Swift model and see just how well it stacks up.
Processor: Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 256 GB SSD
Screen: 14 Inches
OS: Windows 10
– Nobody likes a laptop that can’t keep up with typical day to day tasks and luckily this Acer packs in the Intel Core i5 along with 8 GB of memory which can easily handle an average users workload. The Intel Core i5 is slightly more budget friendly than the powerful Intel Core i7 but still packs some great performance
– Another way that Acer has been able to squeeze out a little extra performance is by including an SSD drive. The 256 GB SSD drive has faster read and write times compared to a SATA which helps improve overall performance
– At just 3.53 pounds it is quite a bit lighter than a standard sized laptop which can run up to 5 pounds or more
– Battery life has the ability to give you up to 10 hours in ideal conditions which will keep you on the go for a good part of the day
– One area this Acer Swift model does not have you well covered is gaming. It lacks a powerful graphics card with only the Intel graphics 620 packed into its design and while it can handle light gaming it will struggle with some of the newer and demanding games currently on the market
– Speaker quality is quite basic and some early buyers have complained about poor sound quality on this model
If gaming is not high on your list but a well performing and mobile friendly laptop is than the Acer Swift 3 SF314-52-52V8 might make the perfect choice for your next purchase.
