Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF314-55G

85% Acer Swift 3 review (SF314-55G 2018 model – i3-8145U, Nvidia MX150 Max-Q)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
This laptop is an excellent update of the previous 14-inch Swift 3s. It's a slightly more expensive product, but at the same time it fixes many of their issues and compromises on very few aspects. The compact form-factor, the excellent build quality, the fast and accurate keyboard, the matte IPS screen, the hardware specs, the performance and the speakers are among its main top selling points, but at the same time potential buyers have to accept the slightly heavier construction and the fact that it runs hot with demanding loads.

Acer Swift 3 (2018) first look: A gigabit Wi-Fi laptop for the masses
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Seeing one of these effortlessly handle a 10GB file transfer was very impressive. For people who need to work on the go, particularly people who shoot and edit video, this will be a real plus. As for how the Acer Swift 3 handles the rest of that supply chain – i.e. actually handling the editing and rendering – remains to be seen, but Intel’s promised us a boost in this department, too. I’m a little less keen on the flexy metal body, but maybe that’s just me. It definetly doesn’t feel ‘cheap’ and I do love how lightweight the Swift 3 is.

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.


85%: 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.
