Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF314-59-52Q3

The Acer Swift 3 isn’t a game-changer. Its design is nice with some cool chrome accents that give a touch of flair. You will get decent performance out of the 11th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU and solid rendering from the Intel Iris Xe GPU, but it won’t blow you away. Starting at just $729.99, you can get a solid, budget-friendly ultra-thin laptop and travel partner that won’t slow you down. However, if you max it out, you will push close to $1,000, which is fair pricing for the specs and performance you get.

Without being too harsh on this laptop, we feel that its biggest perk is that it’s … ordinary. There are no bold design choices, nor extremities. This means you get plenty for a reasonable price. Take its performance for example. No matter if you are mainly using the CPU, or its integrated graphics, you will be satisfied. Sure, your expectations should be on merit with what this notebook has to offer.
