Acer Swift 3: 16.1-inch laptop with Intel Core i7-11370H does its name justice
When a laptop carries the name "Swift", which means "fast", this naturally raises certain expectations. The Acer Swift 3 SF316-51-75MK, which costs around 1,000 Euros (~$1,156), was able to meet these expectations to a large extent in our review.
The 16.1-inch laptop is equipped with a good matte display that is also sufficiently bright for outdoor use. The relatively light case of 1.7 kg houses the rather rare Intel Core i7-11370H with its integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 96EUs GPU; this is combined with 16 GB of LPDDR4x RAM as well as a 512 GB SSD.
The CPU, which has been granted the highest possible TDP by Acer, performs well in the benchmarks. The Acer Swift 3 can usually outperform the comparison models, and it's also suitable for gaming at medium settings at least thanks to a graphics performance that is on par with the GeForce MX450.
The laptop, which is equipped with three USB 3.2 ports (2x Gen. 1, 1x Type-C Gen. 2 including Thunderbolt 4) and one HDMI port, also scores plus points when it comes to energy consumption and battery life. Thanks to its low consumption rates, it beats contenders with much bigger batteries in terms of battery runtimes. In addition, it's pleasantly quiet even under load, and it only heats up a bit at times.
In short: For around 1,000 Euros (~$1,156), buyers get an all-around solid laptop with the Acer Swift 3 SF316-51-75MK, which didn't reveal any major weaknesses in our review.
