The Acer Swift 5 is a very good looking and sleek laptop with all the high-end specifications. It delivers steady performance and one won’t have too many complaints with it. The device is designed for business users and will definitely fit the bill if you are going for a meeting or travelling. Priced at Rs 79,999, the device is certainly priced on the higher side, but the laptop does manages to justify its price tag as well.

If you’re after a highly portable laptop which doesn’t skimp on performance, the Swift 5 is a solid choice which won’t completely break the bank.

The Acer Swift 5 is one of the only laptops in India with a 14-inch display that weighs under 1kg, which makes it a bit special. At around this price, you can also find other Ultrabooks such as the Dell XPS 13 9360, Lenovo Ideapad 720 Slim, or even the Asus ZenBook UX430UA - all of which share similar specifications but weigh a bit more than 1kg. If weight is an important factor in your buying decision, it will be really hard to beat the Swift 5. Keep in mind that battery life isn't great, so it won’t be easy to get through a full workday on a single charge unless you use this laptop very conservatively. The trackpad is a bit fiddly too, and there’s no SD card slot.
