Acer Swift 3 (SF314-512) - disassembly and upgrade options

Acer Swift 3 14 SF314-512 (2022 model – Intel 12th gen Alder Lake, Evo)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
Much like in the past years and from what I can tell based on my time with this sample, the 2022 Swift 3 14-inch looks like a solid compact and lightweight laptop for school and work and general everyday activities, an option for those of your looking for value for your money in a simple and well-balanced product. It’s still priced competitively, yet that’s no longer an advantage over the competition, with many other similar options now available in the sub $1000 space. Instead, the carefree design with good inputs and IO and without any significant deal-breakers, alongside the balanced performance/thermals/noise proposition, are the major selling points of this generation. At the same time, the overall looks, the battery life with the 56 Wh battery, the audio quality, and the screen quality with the 300-nits IPS matte panel as the single available option, might not be up to your demands, as some of those competing devices offer more now in these areas. All in all, even when accounting for all these aspects, I still feel this is surely worth considering in your decision...

Hands-on with the new Acer Swift 3 laptop for 2022
Source: XDA Developers English
All in all, the Acer Swift 3 (2022) definitely looks like a promising laptop, though it remains to be seen if it’s one of the best laptops this year. There aren’t any major changes in terms of design compared to last year’s model, but the ones we get are definitely good. I appreciate the cleaner look of having the fingerprint reader built into the power button and the upgraded webcam, and the new processors promise a lot more performance. Of course, we’ll have to reserve our judgement on that until we have the final product, but we’re optimistic.

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.
