Acer Swift 1 SF114-34 Review: Silent, long-lasting 14-inch laptop

Not cheap, but well-priced. Acer’s 14-inch laptop scores some major points thanks to its great battery life, silent operation, keyboard backlight and matte IPS screen. The quad-core Pentium Silver N6000 performs about as well as a Skylake chip. Windows is not included. The whole package costs 279 Euros (~$315).

The Acer Swift 1 is a simple 14-inch office notebook, which costs only 279 Euros (~$315). The passively cooled Pentium Silver N6000 can handle office and web-based applications, but it is not a powerful CPU by any means. The competing devices include: the Medion Akoya E14307, the Lenovo IdeaPad 1 14IGL05, the Acer Chromebook 514, and the Samsung Galaxy Book Go.

Case - Swift 1 is made of aluminium

Even though the Swift 1 is an entry-level device, it is made of premium materials. The display lid and the chassis are made of metal. The device comes in the following colour schemes: Silver (our model), Gold and Pink. The screen bezels are always black. The battery is inside the chassis, held in place by several screws. To get to the internal components, users will have to remove the bottom plate.

The housing is well-made. There are no chinks or gaps or any other defects. Both the display lid and the chassis exhibit a moderate amount of flex. The hinges have no difficulties holding an angle and allow for an opening angle of up to 120 °. When open, the display lid slightly raises the top part of the device. Last but not the least, you can open this laptop with one hand.

Connectivity - The SF114-34 does not support Power Delivery over USB

All three ports (2x USB-A, 1x USB-C) of the Swift 1 are based on the USB 3.2 Gen 1 standard. Unfortunately, the USB-C port does not support Power Delivery and DisplayPort functionality. An external display can be connected via the HDMI port. The 14-inch laptop does not feature an SD card reader. The ports are located on either side of the chassis (near the screen).

Communication

The data transfer speeds that we have measured under the optimal conditions (no other Wi-Fi-enabled devices in close proximity, a short distance between the notebook and the server PC) look good to us, even if the Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 module is capable of more on paper. The Swift 1 does not have an Ethernet port, which is why users will have to use a USB adapter to connect to wired networks.

Accessories

The box only includes the obligatory documentation (quick start guide, warranty information).

Maintenance

The internal components can be accessed by removing the bottom cover. For this, all the screws on the bottom will need to be undone. Subsequently, the bottom cover can be removed with the help of a spudger. The battery, Wi-Fi module, M.2 slot (M.2-2280, NVMe) and the BIOS battery can be accessed after the removal of the bottom plate.

Warranty

Acer grants 2 years of warranty for the Swift 1. To extend the warranty to 3 years, buyers will have to pay an additional 50 Euros (~$57).

Operating System

The Swift 1 does not come with the Windows operating system. Those who already have a Windows licence can easily install Windows 10. Linux can be used as an alternative. We were able to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS without any issues. Almost all of the Acer Swift 1’s hardware was instantly recognised and functioned as expected. Only the function key, which is used to enable/disable the aeroplane mode, did not work. However, after we installed the recommended update, everything worked.

Input Devices - Acer notebook with a keyboard backlight

Keyboard

The flat, smooth, backlit keys of the chiclet-style keyboard offer a clear actuation point and short travel distance. The keys require a moderate amount of force to be pressed. When typing, the upper part of the keyboard exhibits some flex. The single-level backlight can be enabled/disabled with a function key. All in all, the Swift 1 has a decent keyboard.

Touchpad

A multi-touch clickpad (10.5x6.5 cm / 4.13x2.55 in) serves as the mouse replacement. It has a smooth surface, short travel distance and a clear actuation point. The pad has no trouble registering inputs even in the corners.

Display - IPS panel

The brightness (264.8 cd/m²) and the contrast ratio (952:1) are not impressive but okay for such a device. We view the brightness of 300 cd/m² and the contrast ratio of at least 1000:1 as good.

At 10 % brightness and below, the screen flickers at a frequency of 25000 Hz. The flickering is not perceptible. Because the frequency is so high, even sensitive individuals should not experience headaches or eye strain.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
20 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 12 ms rise
↘ 8 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 28 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
29 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13 ms rise
↘ 16 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 23 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.5 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 25000 Hz ≤ 10 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 25000 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 10 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 25000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 20903 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel offers very good viewing angles. Outdoors, the screen can be read only when the sun does not shine too brightly.

Performance - Acer laptop comes with a Jasper Lake CPU

The Acer Swift 1 SF114-34 is a 14-inch notebook which can handle office and web-based applications.

System Settings

The manufacturer does not provide any custom profiles for the Swift 1. Standard Windows profiles are used. The benchmarks were conducted using the “High Performance” power plan. The CPU has two power limits (PL1: 7 W; PL2: 20 W).

Note: Some of the following benchmarks were conducted with the identically built model of the Acer Swift 1 (SF114-34-P91A), which features 8 GB of dual-channel RAM.  

Processor

The Swift 1 is powered by the quad-core Pentium Silver N6000 (Jasper Lake). Because the chip has a TDP of 6 W, it can be cooled passively. The CPU has a base clock of 1.1 GHz and a boost clock of 3.3 GHz. Hyperthreading (two threads per core) is not supported.

In Cinebench R15, the processor initially runs at 3.1 GHz in the multi-core section and at 3.1 to 3.3 GHz in the single-core section. However, the clock rates quickly fall to 2 GHz in the multi-core section and 2.6 to 2.7 GHz in the single-core section. The level of performance does not change when the laptop is unplugged.

The CPU provides a considerably higher level of performance than its predecessor (Pentium Silver N5000). This is due in large part to the new Jasper Lake architecture. Nevertheless, the results are somewhat disappointing. The recently reviewed Asus Vivobook 13 Slate manages to get more performance out of the passively cooled Pentium Silver N6000. This is only partially the result of dual-channel RAM.

Single-core performance (plugged in)
Single-core performance (plugged in)

We check if the Turbo boost can be used over an extended period of time by running the Cinebench R15 multi-core benchmark in a continuous loop for 30 minutes. After the first benchmark run, the results dropped only slightly. All in all, this is a good result for a passively cooled system.

System Performance

The system runs smoothly. However, the Pentium CPU and 4 GB of RAM will not be enough for any demanding applications. Opening too many tabs or background applications can slow the system down. The PC Mark results are on an expected level.

The Swift 1 does not fully leverage its CPU because of the single-channel RAM (LPDDR4X). There is no way to upgrade the RAM, which means that users will have to get the model with 8 GB of dual-channel RAM to get the maximum level of performance.

DPC Latencies

Our LatencyMon test reveals that the Swift 1 has problems with latency spikes. This is why it is not suited for work with real-time audio or video. These latency issues may be resolved in a future update.

Storage

The Acer laptop comes with a 128 GB eMMC module. It achieves exactly the kinds of speeds that we would expect to see from such a storage device. Inside the laptop, there is a slot for an NVMe SSD (M.2 2280). An SSD can be used as the system drive (we checked).

Note: The eMMC module is divided into two partitions (113 GB, 3 GB). The smaller partition contains all the necessary drivers for Windows. This significantly simplifies the Windows installation process.

An NVMe SSD can be added after the purchase.
