Reviews for the Acer Swift 5 SF514-56T-706S
Source: L&B TechReview
The Acer Swift 5 is an exceptionally well-built ultrabook computer at a really sharp price. The processor is the star of the show, but there’s enough graphics, RAM and storage to compete with more upmarket models. And the Swift 5 doesn’t look cheap at all. If you need a handy PC that you can stuff in your bag for everyday use and that’s so light and compact you’ll wonder if you remembered to bring it, there’s not much to worry about.
