100% Acer Swift 5 review: a powerful and portable mid-range Windows 10 laptop
Source: T3 English
You should be able to pick up the Acer Swift 5 for a little under £1,000 if you shop around online, and that price point feels about right as well – it's not up there with the very best laptops on the market, but it's definitely not a budget machine either. At this price point, we'd say it offers better value than most laptops.

Source: Tech Advisor English
The Acer Swift 5 is a decent choice if you're looking for a very portable lightweight laptop with solid battery life and a good selection of ports. It also offers good performance from just a Core i5 but you can get a dedicated GPU elsewhere for the same price from HP. Both the screen and keyboard are sub-par compared to to rivals but Acer does have a good value option here.

70% Acer Swift 5 SF514-54T review: An all-rounder
Source: Gadgets Now English
Acer Swift 5 SF514-54T has its fair share of pros and cons. The cons include wobbling display and the constricted keyboard. On the positive side is the fast processor, long battery life, lightweight adding to the portability and sleek design. Clearly, there are more points on the right side than the wrong side. But then comes the price of the laptop - a hefty price tag of Rs 97,990. Not many in India may be willing to spend this much amount given the price-conscious mindset. And those who may be willing could possibly look for other choices like the Apple MacBook Air -- that is if they want to switch from Windows to Mac.

Source: Neowin English
I love the Acer Swift 5. It's super-light (and anyone that reads my work knows I love light devices) and easy to carry, but it doesn't make compromises. And the coolest part to me is that it also doesn't compromise on style. The two-tone blue and gold design is sleek, and it differentiates between not just other magnesium laptops, but all other laptops.

Acer Swift 5 review: A small miracle
Source: Good Gear Guide English
It’s a sacrifice I’m fine with, honestly. The Swift 5’s been an excellent traveling companion the past few weeks, a machine I can toss in my bag and simply forget about for hours at a time. Then I pull it out and voila, a full-sized laptop. It’s a small miracle, quite literally.

The latest Acer Swift 5 is an impressive 14-inch ultraportable that gives you ample power for a low $999.99. It's a solid option if you don't need workstation- or gaming-class performance or MIL-STD rugged construction.

75% Acer’S Latest Swift 5 Is Light On Your Back And Lighter On Your Wallet
Source: The Verge English
But while there are certainly areas where the new Swift 5 could improve, the trade-offs you have to make for the compact build are comparably few. Acer has made subtle, but noticeable improvements in areas that matter. The newly matte screen looks and feels better, the fingerprint reader is better, and while the design doesn’t look premium, it’s no longer an eyesore. Ports are still limited, but we finally have Thunderbolt 3. The keyboard is imperfect, but fine. The speakers are imperfect, but fine. The touchpad is imperfect, but fine. Everything is basically fine.

Review – Acer Swift 5: Impossibly thin and light
Source: NLT English
For the variant that we have for review, its price is at RM3,999. With all things considered, this is a fairly good deal. We get an impossibly thin and light laptop with decent specs to match.

Acer Swift 5 Pro (SF514-54GT) review – the lightest laptop got a GeForce treatment
Source: Laptop Media English
This sounds great, but keep in mind you won’t be very comfortable using the touchscreen, as the entire lid flops like a madman if you tap it. On the bright side, the lid, itself, acts as a leverage for the base that lifts its backside a couple of millimeters. Perhaps this was the reason for the cool and quiet work of the laptop.

Hands on: Acer Swift 5 (2020) Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Acer Swift 5 (2020) isn't a huge upgrade on its predecessor, but being one of the very first laptops to feature Intel's Tiger Lake processor is a massive landmark. And with an affordable price point, ultra-portable design and a respectable spec sheet, the Swift 5 seemingly represents fantastic value and a promising option for students.

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 G1 (Ice Lake 32 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G1 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 32 of the 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm process at Intel produced.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.

Intel Iris Plus Graphics G7 (Ice Lake 64 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm process at Intel produced.

NVIDIA GeForce MX350: Successor of the MX250 and most likely a renamed GeForce GTX 1050 based on the Pascal GP107 chip with 640 shaders and a 64 Bit memory bus for GDDR5.

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


Intel Ice Lake:

i5-1035G1: Ice-Lake based low power quad core processor for thin and light laptops. Integrated four Sunnycove cores clocked at 1.2 - 3.7 GHz that support Hyperthreading (8 threads). Furthermore, the SoC integrates a Intel UHD Graphics G1 graphics card and Wifi 6 / Thunderbolt partly integrated. The chip is manufactured in the modern 10nm process at Intel.

i7-1065G7: Ice Lake based low power quad-core processor for thin and light laptops. The four cores clock between 1.3 - 3.9 GHz and should offer 18% more IPC (instructions per clock) than the previous generations (and therefore partly close the clock speed gap). Produced in 10nm at Intel.
