Reviews for the Acer Swift 3X SF314-510G-73NT

This Acer Laptop Is A Nice Work Companion But The Bloatware Needs To Go
Source: English
It's hard to overstate just how meaningful the Swift 3's size and weight are, and because of that, it makes up for some of its other shortcomings. It’s designed to roll seamlessly into your life and be as unobtrusive as possible and succeeds, making it pleasant to use as a daily carry—and that design is exactly what makes Swift 3 compelling, even when some of its other qualities are less inspiring. It’s not the most powerful notebook on the market, and the configuration options all fall into the middle tier of performance. But for productivity, that’s fine. Core apps, like Word and Google Docs, run seamlessly. Browsing social media, scouring YouTube, and binging Netflix is fast and lag-free. Even light photo editing with Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom is within scope. But beyond that, the Swift 3 hits its glass ceiling. The limited I/O also means you may need to invest in a small USB hub to carry with you.

80% Acer Swift 3X Review: How Good Is Intel’s Dedicated GPU?
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
So, should you buy the Acer Swift 3X when you can get budget gaming laptops with more beefed-up GPU for its asking price? Not quite. The thing this laptop excels at is its portable form factor and display quality, while also being rich in terms of ports. Thus, it is a decent choice for students, or someone learning photo and video creation. But for everyone else, the Iris Xe Max doesn’t add much value. It’s not a gaming beast either and not many apps support its signature feature so far either.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
