The Acer Swift 3 (SF314-43-R2YY, AMD) is an affordable mainstream laptop that offers amazing performance for its mid-range price. Its main highlights include an AMD Ryzen 5700U CPU, long battery life and a lightweight chassis. However, its display isn’t as bright as it should, and its speakers could definitely use more pep as well. If you’re looking for something with a brighter, a more vibrant and colorful display and some spirited speakers, you might want to check out the HP Envy 13, which runs for around the same price. Otherwise, this Acer Swift 3 SF314-43-R2YY shows that it can provide you with a great laptop experience, and is especially good for those looking to use it more for work and school.
