80% Acer Swift 5 SF515-51T impressions (i7-8565U, UHD 620) – the lightest 15-inch laptop
Source: Ultrabook Review English
You should also consider the competition, mostly the LG Gram 15 if available in your region, which is only available with KabyLake-R hardware for the time being, is slightly heavier (about 1.1 kilos / 2.4 lbs) and not as nicely built, but it’s also a tad cheaper, easier to upgrade and gets a larger 72 Wh battery. Follow up this link for more details on the 15-inch LG Gram. The 15-inch Samsung Notebook 9 15 might be another alternative, at about 2.7 lbs, as well as some of the light 14-inch ultraportables out there, although most of those are significantly more expensive.

87.1% Acer Swift 5 SF515-51T (i7-8565U, SSD, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Acer has created a 15.6-inch notebook that is light as a feather and features up-to-date technology: a Whiskey Lake processor, an NVMe SSD and (dual-channel) DDR4 RAM. Of course these features don't come cheap: The device is available for around $1400.

All in all, a great device. While it is definitely not one of the fastest on the market and is as fragile as it looks, we can’t miss the fact that it’s a rare breed. Tell us what you think of the Acer Swift 5 (SF515-51T) in the comments. Do you like it, or you prefer practicality over design features?

Comment

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.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

i7-8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

Intel Core i5:

i5-8265U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

0.99 kg:

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.

1 kg:


85.43%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
