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

85% Acer Swift 5 (2022) review: A solid all-rounder
Source: Hardware Zone English
And at S$2,398, it’s also reasonably priced. One could make the case for the ASUS ZenBook 14 UX3402 and say that at S$1,899 it’s even more affordable. However, the ASUS doesn’t perform quite as well, runs noisier and warmer, and has a smaller 512GB SSD. It’s also chunkier and heavier. The ZenBook is great if you are on a tight budget, but the Swift 5's premium is well justified. Furthermore, Acer offers a more affordable variant that comes with a Core i5-1240P processor but still with 16GB of memory and 1TB SSD for S$2,198. Ultimately, however, both the Acer and ASUS are excellent notebooks that cater to slightly different users. That said, this is easily the best Swift 5 that Acer has made yet and one of the most bang for buck ultraportable notebooks you can buy.

82% Acer Swift 5 (2022) Review – Portable Excellence
Source: Pokde English
The Acer Swift 5 (2022) is an excellent laptop but it’s not meant for everyone. It depends on the person as some issues will not be apparent to everyone. If you’re looking for an ultraportable laptop with good performance and versatility, this should definitely be considered, especially if you can afford its asking price of RM6,599.

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.

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.

Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.

78.75%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
