The Acer Swift 3 is an OLED ultraportable that’s best for media creators who will make use of its high-powered Core i7 H-series processor. For general use, you will get better battery life and a thinner design from an OLED ultraportable with a U-series chip, such as the HP Elite Dragonfly G3. The AMD-based Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 Carbon is also another option for a sleek, long-running OLED ultraportable. If you are willing to trade longevity for greater multimedia capabilities, then there’s lots to like about the Swift 3, from its roomy, gorgeous 14-inch OLED display to its sturdy, all-aluminum frame.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
