Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF313-52-52AS

Acer Swift 3 (SF313-52) review – the Swift series now have a 3:2 challenger
Source: Laptop Media English
What is more important here is to have fast and more memory. Well, the first checkbox is ticked by the LPDDR4 RAM modules, but the second is a different story. Since there are no slots for upgrades, you are stuck with a maximum of 16GB. And this is if you get the appropriate version that includes 16GB, otherwise, you might get 8GB for the rest of this laptop’s life. Thankfully, though, Acer was kind enough to include an M.2 NVMe-enabled slot for storage upgradability.

85% Acer Swift 3 SF313-52 review (2020 model, 3:2 display and IceLake hardware)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
This Acer Swift 3 SF314-52 is one of the most interesting mid-range ultraportables you'll find in stores during 2020. The 3:2 good-quality screen is its major selling point, but so are the sturdy and lightweight construction, the solid everyday experience and the fair battery life, despite the toll taken by the high-res display. Furthermore, the competitive pricing adds to this notebook's overall value and could compensate for its quirks, such as the sub-par inputs and puny audio. At the same time, though, these could also just kill it for some of you.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
