Reviews for the Acer Swift 1 SF114-32-P8GG

84.5% Acer Swift 1 SF114-32 (N5000, SSD, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Elegant endurance runner. Acer's 14-incher offers an excellent battery life, an elegant, slim metal case, a keyboard illumination, and a matte IPS display. The new Pentium Silver N5000 quad-core processor has significantly more computing power than its predecessor, advancing into the range of earlier Core-i3 processors with this. You have to pay almost 600 Euros (~$707) for the whole package.

If you are shopping for a new laptop for work or study purposes and you’re on a tight budget, I can recommend the Acer Swift 1 as a good option. It’s not quite the bargain of the century – you will need to keep an eye on that battery and it’s not suitable for even the lightest of photo editing tasks – but for word processing, web browsing, emails and a spot of occasional Netflix, it’s fine, not to mention cheap. Just go easy on it.

Intel UHD Graphics 605: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Gemini Lake series. Compared to the HD Graphics 505, the 605 offers improved display outputs. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
N5000: Low power quad-core SoC from the Gemini Lake series for inexpensive notebooks. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.7 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
14":

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.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.4 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


77.08%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
