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.

The Swift 1 is cheap, looks nice and has a good battery -- just don't give it anything more difficult to do than web browsing.

The Swift is a good bargain for the budget-conscious consumer, especially if you're a college student. This laptop is both light enough to take with you to class and stylish enough to spark conversation. Between the businesslike design and full HD display, this machine really passes for a premium product. While it looks great and can handle basic tasks like writing papers or watching YouTube videos, it gets bogged down pretty easily.

The $329 Acer Swift 1 SF1113-31 P5CK is a striking ultraportable that offers plenty for the price, including USB Type-C compatibility, a bright and colorful display, and clear audio. The machine's Pentium N4200 processor is reliable for office- and school-related tasks, while also providing decent performance for streaming. However, the Swift 1's battery life is much shorter than that of its competitors.

How much laptop can you get for $329? Acer's Switch 1 is a surprisingly strong answer, a little short on storage but with a slim build and a 1080p IPS display.
