Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF315-41-R4W1

Nevertheless, there are loads of other ways to harness that power, and you'd be doing so on a notebook that's both well-built and well-equipped for connectivity and features. If you value performance over portability (and, frankly, battery life), it deserves your attention, and as a demonstration of Ryzen laptops it's a promising start.
