Acer's 13.3-inch Swift 3 brings a few wins to the ultraportable arena, chief among them a moderate $899.99 price. Even with a so-so screen and some keyboard stumbles, it's worth a look.

As long as you don't have a bunch of spare USB Type-C chargers lying around that you want to be able to use, the Acer Swift 3 is a great PC for $899, with its Core i7 and 512GB SSD. It's a good option if you're looking for portability and a small footprint. Definitely shop around though, because you might find some better deals around this price point.
