Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF314-55G
Source: Ultrabook Review
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.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
