Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF314-51-51QP

80% Acer Swift 3 review: a capable all-rounder
Source: It Pro English
The Acer Swift 3 isn't a hugely inspiring laptop. Its performance and battery life are both passable but not amazing, and the display is disappointing. However, the Swift 3 makes up for this with an excellent keyboard and an appealingly-designed chassis that feels like it comes from a much more expensive machine.

90% Acer Swift 3 review: an all-metal, ultraportable 14in laptop at a very tempting price
Source: PC Advisor English
The Acer Swift 3 is a near-perfect laptop for those who want an ultraportable, but don’t want to fork out £1000+. Build quality is great, battery life very good, and performance a match for much more expensive laptops. There are just two areas where the low price shows. First, it's a little thicker and heavier than some ultrabooks. It looks good enough, but limited maximum brightness and fairly poor colour reproduction limits its usefulness in certain situations.

Acer Swift 3 review: New body, familiar laptop
Source: Soycincau English
It captures a lot of the old S 13’s spirit, only in a new all-metal body plus a few bells and whistles. The way I see it, the only issue with purchasing one would be that the Swift 3 only comes in one configuration, so if you want, say 8GB of memory, you can’t buy a higher spec. Otherwise, this is a pretty solid laptop.

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.

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


84%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
