86.3% Acer Swift 5 Laptop Review: An all-round improvement for the 14-inch ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Another Swift flyweight has come up for testing and will have to prove that it requires a lot fewer compromises than its predecessor did. Will the new Intel Core i5-1035G1 finally offer the appropriate performance instead of extreme throttling? Find out in our review.

There are several laptops and tablets lying around my apartment but I found myself grabbing the Swift 5 over the others. That's because the Swift 5's staggeringly lightweight chassis required little effort to carry around and I could reliably count on there being enough battery life remaining. I also really enjoyed watching content on the 14-inch, 1080p display, which is plenty vivid and blocks reflections.

So where's the catch? The magnesium-rich casing may feel closer to plastic than aluminium to some fingers. If you can shrug off the superficial, only the trackpad could do with a level-up. But that's one reason the price starts at under £800, rather than closer to £1000.

Acer Swift 5 Pro (SF514-54GT) review – the lightest laptop got a GeForce treatment
Source: Laptop Media English
This sounds great, but keep in mind you won’t be very comfortable using the touchscreen, as the entire lid flops like a madman if you tap it. On the bright side, the lid, itself, acts as a leverage for the base that lifts its backside a couple of millimeters. Perhaps this was the reason for the cool and quiet work of the laptop.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. 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.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


82.1%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
