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.

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.
