Acer Swift 3, SF314-51-52W2 14 inch FHD Laptop Review

14 inch Acer Swift 3 SF314-51-52W2 Full HD Laptop


Acer Swift 3 SF314-51-52W2 is a brand new release, lightweight and slim computer in a stylish aluminum chassis, with a 14 inch Full HD display that moves on a 180 degree hinge, modern connectivity options, backlit keyboard with spacious keys and long battery life of up to 10 hours on a single charge (in theory) for great multimedia experience and work performance. It comes with the sixth generation ultra low voltage dual core Intel i5-6200U processor (3MB L3 cache) at 2.3GHz up to 2.8GHz speeds with turbo boost and hyperthreading and a Passmark benchmark score of 4048 indicating fast performance overall, 8GB DDR4 onboard SDRAM for great multitasking efficiency, a large and fast high capacity 256GB Solid State Drive for overall snappiness and faster boot-ups which you will already experience with Windows 10 Home operating system. 14 inch Full HD Led-backlit widescreen non-touch matte display has 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and IPS panel for up to 178 degrees of viewing angles vertically and horizontally and 16:9 image aspect ratio. This is not an advanced gaming machine as it only includes the built-in Intel HD 520 graphics card, which is quite all right and will let you play some of the latest titles at low to medium settings and frame rates per second- with a performance comparable to NVIDIA GeForce 820M.


Sparkly silver Acer Swift 3 has an all-metal chassis and a beautiful design, is quite slim and lightweight- weighs 3.31 pounds and is 0.71 inches thick (9.31 x 13.43 x 0.71 inches), so you can take it anywhere you go after charging it and take it anywhere. Acer TrueHarmony Sound System and two integrated stereo speakers seem to deliver good quality sound for videos, games, and songs. There is an integrated digital microphone attached to the decent quality high definition webcam with 1280 x 720-pixel resolution that supports HDR- High Dynamic Range. Internet is the main reason computers are used these days and this one comes with the latest 802.11ac WiFi with 2×2 MU-MIMO technology and Bluetooth 4.0, Secure Digital (SD) Card Reader, Acer Fingerprint Reader, a USB 3.0 port with power-off charger, a USB 3.1 (Type-C) port, a USB 2.0 port, and an HDMI output with HDCP support. The 4-cell lithium ion battery should last around 7-8 hours in practice on a single charge in normal use, and more when the light is reduced. The keyboard is backlit and the large Precision touchpad is responsive and feels smooth, to use with Windows 10 functions and apps. Fan noise is very subtle- is hard to hear and it hardly ever gets hot, starts up fast, has a great backlit keyboard with nicely spaced out keys, is slim and lightweight with a classy and modern appearance, performs well for both your daily and more demanding tasks.
