Well-designed for every day. Acer has learned to produce good and affordable laptops with an attractive design. Our review sample also proves this. However, not only the outer values are good. The Swift 3 has quite a bit to offer on the inside as well. Our tests present a balanced laptop that delivers the promised performance.

Focused on delivering the best performance for the lowest price, the worst part about the Acer Swift 3 is that all of its best qualities may very well go unnoticed.

Although it’s a budget laptop, the Acer Swift 3 packs the performance and battery life to compete outside its price range. The wide range of ports and top-notch keyboard and touchpad are the icing on the cake. As long as you don’t mind its lack of style, you can’t get much better than the Swift 3.

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.
