Model: The Swift laptop series is Acer‘s very own lineup of ultra-portable laptops, which has been consistently expanding due to largely popular demand from dedicated fans and experimenting users all around the globe. The Swift lineup cleverly branded itself through the distinction of odd numbers, which can be evidently seen through the gap in releases such as the case in the exemplary leap from the Acer Swift 1 series to the Acer Swift 3 series. As we touch upon the subject of the Swift 3 series, one of Acer’s recent releases would be none other than the Acer Swift 3 SF314-41-R80D model. What makes this particular laptop model stand out from its other siblings within the very same lineup is worth investigating and diving upon. First and foremost, the Acer Swift 3 SF314-41-R80D laptop model carries a screen size of 14 inch in total on a FHD IPS screen. This creates an 84 percentage of screen-to-body ratio in between two very narrow bezels. Not only that, with the incorporation of the Acer Color Intelligence technology and Exacolor architecture, courtesy of the company, color contrast is greatly enhanced to meet the user’s satisfaction. The construction of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-41-R80D laptop model is formed through the selective combined usage of magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum metal chassis. This enables the Acer Swift 3 SF314-41-R80D laptop model to assume a lightweight property with only an approximated total weight of 1.19 kilograms (kg) as well as being compressed to only 15.95 millimeters thin. This makes the Acer Swift 3 SF314-41-R80D laptop model to be regarded as one of the most conveniently portable devices made available to the market on this day and age.

The Acer Swift 3 SF314-41-R80D laptop model has its own very unique features. For instance, the integration of several digital traits based on the principle of smart access such as Cortana, Wake on Voice (WoV) command, as well as an embedded fingerprint reader makes everything all the more accessible and easier for users to navigate around with. Cortana – also to be known as the Microsoft’s artificial intelligence for laptops much like Apple’s very own equivalent of Siri – is a smart virtual assistant that the users can employ their help of in accordance to their needs. For example Cortana can answer questions from the user through gathering information from a cloud-based server as well as scheduling tasks to ensure that the user can stay on track with time. Cortana not only keeps things organized and structured, but also aims to aid the user in various aspects of life.
