Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF313-51-59SZ
With an Intel Core i5-8250U processor and a fast SSD, the Acer Swift 3 SF313 is well-equipped for most tasks that could be thrown at it. Thanks to its LTE modem, the 13.3-inch subnotebook is also suitable as a small business companion for work on the go. Acer has not included a dedicated GPU, but this decision benefits battery life.

The Acer Swift 3 is a special laptop because it's one of the few thin and light models in the market to feature 4G LTE connectivity along with good performance. That said, I wish it had a better keyboard, clearer sound, and upgradeable RAM.
