Reviews for the Acer Swift 5 SF514-54T-501U

100% Acer Swift 5 review: a powerful and portable mid-range Windows 10 laptop
Source: T3 English Archive.org version
You should be able to pick up the Acer Swift 5 for a little under £1,000 if you shop around online, and that price point feels about right as well – it's not up there with the very best laptops on the market, but it's definitely not a budget machine either. At this price point, we'd say it offers better value than most laptops.

90% Acer Swift 5 (SF514-54T) review
Source: Tech Advisor English Archive.org version
The Acer Swift 5 is a decent choice if you're looking for a very portable lightweight laptop with solid battery life and a good selection of ports. It also offers good performance from just a Core i5 but you can get a dedicated GPU elsewhere for the same price from HP. Both the screen and keyboard are sub-par compared to to rivals but Acer does have a good value option here.

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.
