Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF314-511-54ZK
The Acer Swift 3 is a laptop for the masses: It's affordable, solidly built, it handles its performance well, it's highly portable, it has good input devices, and a great display. Instead of a card reader, there's Thunderbolt 4 - what else could you ask for?

The new Acer Swift 3 is a highly impressive combination of high quality and low price. For under £600, you’re getting a well-made, compact all-metal laptop with a very good display and plenty of fringe benefits like a fingerprint reader, a backlit keyboard and Thunderbolt 4 connectivity. Add to that class-leading battery life and you have a proposition that’s very hard to argue with. Even with the competition now available with considerable discounts the Acer Swift 3 is still the cheapest option for anyone wanting a good quality compact laptop and, in these straightened times, that is becoming increasingly important to an increasing number of buyers.
