Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF314-57, i3-1005G1

Acer Swift 3 (SF314-57) review – 10th Gen Intel processors + a super lightweight body
Source: Laptop Media English
However, you have to keep in mind that our testing machine had the Core i3-1005G1 on board, which produces slightly less heat than the Core i5-1035G1, which has double the number of cores. Moreover, the MX250 should make a big difference in terms of noise and cooling capacity but will give you significantly better framerates in 99% of the cases.

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.
