Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF314-41-R8HZ
Acer's new 14-inch subnotebook sports a sleek metal chassis, a Ryzen 5 APU and dual-channel RAM among other features. The rest of the device seems on point too, with Acer including an NVMe SSD, matte IPS screen, and a backlit keyboard. These are joined by good battery life too.
