Reviews for the Acer Swift 5 SF514-55GT-79BM

Acer Swift 5 Pro (SF514-55GT) review – you’re better off disabling the MX350 because Xe Graphics is on fire

On the other side, you won’t be able to upgrade your memory, as all of it is soldered to the motherboard. This also means that you would need to pick the 16GB version if you are planning to disable the dGPU. Also, the keyboard and touchpad are average, while the fingerprint reader is very fast and secure.
