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

70% Acer Swift 3 (2022) review: a solid system for the price
Source: Digital Trends English
The Acer Swift 3 is a typical 14-inch midrange clamshell laptop in appearance, but it excels in a few crucial areas. First, it’s well-built. Second, its performance is class-leading, And third, its battery life is above average. That combines to create a laptop that should be on anyone’s shopping list. The one negative is the 16:9 display. Not every laptop has transitioned to 16:10 or 3:2, but enough have that the Swift 3 stands out. One day soon, I won’t recommend a laptop with an old-school aspect ratio no matter its other qualities, but that day hasn’t come just yet.

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.

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.
