80% Acer Swift 3 Ultra Thin

The Swift range was launched a year ago in Glasgow and I have previously looked at a different model from the same range. This is a rather smart looking Notebook with the screen capable of going back to 180 degrees.

The Acer Swift 3 isn’t a perfect laptop: it looks good, but some of its peers are prettier; battery life is decent, but some last longer.

80% Acer Swift 3 review: A solid, affordable laptop choice

The Acer Swift 3 isn't quite the ultra-bargain the last the last model in this series was. However, it's still a cracker of a deal when in numerous respects it can match laptops hundreds of pounds more expensive.

The Acer Swift 3 is a budget laptop with an impressive all-metal design, but it skimps on some features you might find important.

70% Acer Swift 3 Review and Ratings

The Acer Swift 3, in the form we tested it, is a midrange laptop that demonstrates the compromises we often have to make when shopping for a laptop. Are there faster systems available? Sure. Are there lighter, cheaper, or better-equipped ones? Undoubtedly. But at the end of the day, the question you always have to ask yourself is: Does the laptop offer enough for the price to meet my needs? And for a fair number of users, we imagine, the answer will be “Yes.”

The Acer Swift 3 is a decent midrange laptop with solid construction and strong performance. But its keyboard is shallow, and its display is dim and bland. On top of that, Acer's giant pile of bloatware evokes an experience usually only found on bargain-bin laptops.

The Acer Swift 3 2017 is a stylish, long-lasting, slim and plenty-powerful laptop for a reasonable price. It isn’t as outstanding a bargain as its predecessor, but it’s still well worth a look.

75% Acer Swift 3 review: Lightweight and fast with Windows 10 inside
Source: India Today English
Acer Swift 3 is a sturdy Windows machine that also manages to look elegant. Surely it is a copy of Apple's design, but then it works well. It is light despite its 14-inch screen and has good build quality. The keyboard, the plastic inserts around the display, or the hinge... all have good build quality. Having said that, it isn't as well-built as the MacBook Air itself, for example, that sells at the same price, and the battery backup you get is far less than advertised.

90% Acer Swift 3 review

The Acer Swift 3 is a seriously impressive laptop for its price. It delivers an absolutely fantastic combination of looks, features, performance and battery life that no other machine can match for the same money. There are a few laptops of similar price and spec – such as the Lenovo Ideapad 510S – that deliver most of the same features and performance, but they can’t match the Swift’s all-metal exterior.

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.


77.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
