Reviews for the Acer Swift 5 SF514-56T-797T

78% Acer Swift 5 review: Sleek and modern ultraportable hurt by a bad touchpad
Source: PC World English
Can a lamentable touchpad ruin what is an otherwise well-rounded laptop? That’s the big question with the Acer Swift 5, a 14-inch ultraportable with a sleek design and a roomy, hi-res display powered modern components. Unfortunately, the touchpad is undersized with a terrible click mechanism that sours the deal. That said, touchpad aside, the Swift 5 has a lot going for it. It packs in a 14-inch display with a tall 16:10 aspect ratio inside a sleek, all-metal enclosure and weighs less than three pounds. Inside, the system boasts a 12th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a spacious 1TB SSD. The laptop delivers the strong performance and long battery life that business execs need along with the high style and portability they crave. That touchpad, though.

14.00":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


78%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
