Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF315-41-R6J9

81.8% Acer Swift 3 (Ryzen 7 2700U, Radeon RX Vega 10) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Ryzen up. Acer has updated their popular Swift 3 laptop with AMD's most powerful mobile APU, the Ryzen 7 2700U with RX Vega 10 graphics. Unfortunately, the system fails to live up to its full potential.
The Acer Swift 3 SF315-41 Review: Ryzen Meets Laptop
Source: AnandTech English
The combination of AMD’s Ryzen mobile, along with a good design, and excellent specifications for the price, really do make the Acer Swift 3 an appealing proposition. We’ve never tested a laptop at this price point with a 512 GB SSD before, and the 8 GB of DDR4 is very welcome as well at this price. If you can get over the poor quality keyboard, there’s a lot of laptop for the dollar here, and the ability to actually run real games is a welcome change.

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


80.9%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
