The Acer Swift 1 is an ultra-portable that hits the sub-$350 price point by making a few hard choices. If you don't mind a puny solid-state drive and average performance, the Acer Swift 1 might be the laptop for you. For anyone else, though, I'd recommend forking over more cash for a faster ultra-portable (an expense that may pay off later in longevity), or settling for a bigger laptop without such steep speed compromises (like the $350 Acer Aspire E 15). At the very least, Swift 1 shoppers should upgrade to the $400 version with a roomier 128GB SSD.

When checking the price of the Swift 3, I came across a bit of an anomaly. As supplied to me, the 64GB SSD version of the product is listed, at the time of writing, at £469.97 at Amazon.co.uk. Listed directly below this entry is the 128GB SSD version of the product and this is priced at £439.99 which does seem to be a far better bargain.

The Acer Swift 1 is largely a great combination of premium looks and budget performance. It’ll be too slow for more demanding users but a good option for more casual users.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
