80% Acer Swift 5 (2021) review: An affordable workhorse
Source: Pocket Lint English
This laptop may not wow on first impression because its magnesium body plates and plastic touchpad don't treat your fingers as a MacBook might. But the Acer has quality where it matters, fitting good performance, a solid keyboard, and good screen into a circa-1kg laptop.

The latest version of the Swift 5 is an excellent Windows 10 laptop which somehow manages to pack high performance, an excellent display, and a battery that'll last all day into a very tidy and lightweight package.

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.
