Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF313-52-71Y7
Thanks to Ice Lake the new Swift 3 offers more CPU performance than before, and 3D has also improved with the new SoC. The subnotebook is jammed into a modern case equipped with a bright 3:2 display, and it is served with a great stamina. Find out in our review whether there are any weaknesses to report as well.

All in all, I’d say the 2020 Swift 3 ultraportable lineup remains competitive, with good features and aggressive pricing that could be enough to compensate for the rather mediocre keyboards and screens on the 14-inch variants. The 13-inch model is especially interesting for its 3:2 matte display and big battery, an excellent mix for productivity in a small envelope. However, if Renoir ends-up as dominating as it promises, some of you might look past it for being solely built on Intel IceLake hardware.

As we've long said of the Acer Swift 3, it's all about the balance of price to performance. The 2020 model, with its new 3:2 aspect ratio screen, is a bit of a trapeze artist when it comes to delivering dependable specs and features without breaking the bank.
