Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF315-41-R8PP

69% Acer Swift 3 SF315-41-R8PP Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Acer Swift 3 Ryzen variant is a worthy option for its price which offers the best in class build quality, a decent keyboard and a usable display. Thanks to Ryzen 2500U, performance is just as good as any other 8th gen Intel Core i5 variant and the offers a better graphics support over the integrated GPU available with Intel chips. In our opinion, the average battery is the only low point for this laptop, but there is little reason to complain considering the price.

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.


69%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
