100% Acer Swift 5 review: A skinny legend
Source: It Pro English
Apart from some minor shortfalls, such as the low sound levels and average battery life, we found the Acer Swift 5 a genuine pleasure to use. After all, these can be easily remedied by connecting a speaker and a charger. When it comes to the pros, the list is extensive: a beautiful display, ultra lightweight feel, and comfortable keyboard, topped off by great design. The Swift 5 is one of the best laptops we’ve tested this year, so call us hooked.

100% Acer Swift 5 SF514-55T (2021) review: Slim, sleek, chic
Source: Expert Reviews English
Acer has banished all the significant gremlins from its previous generation Swift 5 machines and that makes the new machine a clear recommendation. The keyboard layout still presents some issues but you will probably get used to them in time. Otherwise, it is small, light, powerful and stylish, has ports aplenty and very solid battery life – and for the price, it’s pretty good value. It's not better than the new MacBook Air but it does offer Windows users an alternative for which no excuses need to be made.

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.
