Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF315-52G-8376
Finding a great Ultrabook for less than $1000 is a bit of a tall order, which makes the Acer Swift 3 (2019) an even better purchase with its MacBook-esque look, good thermal performance and decent performance.

The 15-inch Swift 3 SF315-52G is a mid-tier computer with a nicely designed and built chassis, a fast keyboard, a matte IPS screen, good performance and good battery life. The aggressive pricing remains however its main selling point and the reason why you'd accept its quirks, even if none are necessarily deal-breakers: the dim screen, the average speakers, Wi-Fi speed and IO. I'd also make sure to buy from places that handle returns well, QC can be problematic at this level. Read on for the whole story.
