Acer Swift SF3145171UU Review

The Acer Swift SF3145171UU is built for not only high end performance but great mobility as well. It comes with a compact 14 inch design which gives it a smaller footprint than your typical full sized laptop without giving up too much in the way of screen area. Below we will investigate some of the benefits and downsides to this model and find out if it might be right for you.


Processor: Intel Core i7

Memory: 8 GB of RAM

Storage: 512 GB SSD

Screen: 14 Inches

OS: Windows 10


– By including the Intel Core i7 processor Acer has made sure this laptop is ready for just about anything a user would want to throw at it
– At just 3.64 pounds this laptop is much lighter than your typical full sized laptop by at least a full pound
– SSD hard drives are becoming quite popular due to their limited power usage and faster performance but many of them are small at only 256 GB. Acer has doubled this and included a large 512 GB hard drive so that you can get your performance without lacking in storage space
– With a built-in fingerprint reader you get additional security to protect your important data


– To achieve the lightweight design Acer has removed the optical drive from this model which may be a concern for some who still use this older technology
– The Intel HD Graphics that is included does not have any of its own dedicated memory making it a poor option for those who plan on doing any amount of heavy gaming
– Touchscreen technology is not included in this model


The Acer Swift SF3145171UU is a great option for those who want power and mobility all in a single device. The lack of touchscreen or a 360 degree hinge might be a concern for some but others will not be concerned.
