Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF314-59-74VC

Review – Acer Swift 3 SF314-59
Source: NLT English
The closest competition I can come up with is probably the ASUS VivoBook K413 for the i5 model and the MSI Modern 14 for the i7 model. They are slightly more expensive presumably because of the included dedicated GPU. Worth mentioning is that the Swift 3 and the VivoBook K413 will come included with Microsoft Office Home and Student license so that should bring up the value of them.

85% Acer Swift 3 14 SF314-59 review (late-2020, Intel Tiger Lake)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
Acer managed to squeeze a powerful Tiger Lake implementation into an affordable product here, and as a result, this Swift 3 SF314-59 performs very well in all kinds of tasks, including demanding loads and games. The affordable pricing, sturdy build quality, good IO, and fine display are also on its side, but the high thermals, poor audio, and shabby typing experience might steer some of you away, if the final product ends-up the same as this review unit test here.
