Acer Swift 5 SF514-51-59AV

For its latest entry in the ultrabook market, Acer presents the stunning Acer Swift 5 SF514. This is a 14-inch laptop with an aluminium body and it is only 14.58 mm thin. It is about as light as the 13-inch MacBook Air, weighing approximately 1.3 kg, but the screen real-estate is larger. The stylish metal cover is sturdy, with little to no flex in the chassis. Combined with the matte finishing, which repels smudges and protects against scratches, the laptop is definitely built to be a versatile road warrior. The display is also a proof that Acer has graduated from manufacturing a decent laptop lineup to providing premium quality laptops with very competitive price tags. The Acer Swift 5 not only sports a Full HD display, it is also an IPS CineCrystal LED-backlit display, which delivers vivid images and is perfect for graphic designers looking for a laptop to edit their best pictures. To top it all off, the Acer Swift 5 also gets a backlit keyboard and a fingerprint scanner – features typically reserved for the more premium models. The fingerprint scanner works by using Windows Hello to securely and seamlessly log users onto their Windows account.

The Acer Swift 5 runs on a 7th generation Intel Core i5-7200U dual core processors with a base clock of 2.5 GHz and a maximum Turbo clock of 3.1 GHz. Surely, this CPU is more than equipped to handle demanding tasks, be it editing videos or streaming Full HD videos. The Acer Swift 5 has 8 GB of DDR3 RAM, which guarantees snappy multitasking. Another key component of this laptop is its 256 GB SSD. The Acer Swift 5 is not a gaming laptop by any means, but it comes with the latest Intel HD Graphics 620 graphics chip, which can deliver a decent frame rate on HD settings on some blockbuster games. As for battery life, the Acer Swift 5 packs a 3 cell 4670 mAh battery with 45 W maximum power output. The battery is able to last up to 13 hours on a single charge. To maintain its slick profile, the Acer Swift 5 has no optical drive. But to make up for it, Acer has included two USB 3.0 ports, a standalone USB 3.1 Type C first generation port, an HDMI port and an SD card reader, which all in all makes a sweet combo. The Acer Swift 5 SF514 is a perfect laptop for business persons who requires ultra portability and serious processing power to handle their business applications.

Elegant companion. Acer combines the most important elements of a subnotebook and calls the result Swift 5. The refined yet familiar design is particularly impressive.

Acer Swift 5 review
Source: It Pro English
The Acer Swift 5 is one of those rare beasts that perfectly straddles the line between budget and premium. For less than £624 exc VAT, the whole thing screams value for money. You get the performance, portability and battery life you would normally expect from a £1,000+ machine, and the fact that Acer has chosen to squeeze a larger screen into a frame not much bigger than that of a 13.3in laptop makes it really feel like you're getting the most for your cash.

The Acer Switch 5 is a great all-rounder laptop for those who want high-end flavour without a price that’ll make you wince. While this isn’t the best-looking premium laptop around, the Switch 5 is also cheaper than just about all of them, by several hundred pounds in some cases. If you don’t hate the look and don’t mind a plastic trackpad, there’s little reason to delay. The screen is very good for the price, build quality is solid, performance is comparable to much more expensive laptops and there are even some advanced extras like a narrow screen surround. Acer has pulled out another great laptop deal.

Acer Swift 5 preview: Light-as-a-feather laptop delivers killer design punches
Source: Pocket Lint English
With a striking design aesthetic and ultra-lightweight build, the Acer Swift 5 is an even more captivating proposition than it may appear. It's genuinely so lightweight for a 14-inch laptop that it's hard to believe it's not built from metal - which, by and large, it is.

Acer Swift 5 review – sleek and portable 14-inch device without the trade-offs
Source: Laptop Media English
The Swift 5 is a demonstration of what Acer does best – good set of features and great specs at a relatively affordable price. The Swift 5 has almost none of the drawbacks a standard ultrabook would have. The build quality is good, the choice of materials give it a bit of a premium feel while the overall portability of the chassis is excellent. The input devices are a mixed bag for us, though, because the keyboard is slightly mushy and has short key travel. At least the touchpad compensates for the lacking keyboard.

The Acer Swift 5 is a very good looking and sleek laptop with all the high-end specifications. It delivers steady performance and one won’t have too many complaints with it. The device is designed for business users and will definitely fit the bill if you are going for a meeting or travelling. Priced at Rs 79,999, the device is certainly priced on the higher side, but the laptop does manages to justify its price tag as well.

80% Acer Swift 5 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Acer Swift 5 is one of the only laptops in India with a 14-inch display that weighs under 1kg, which makes it a bit special. At around this price, you can also find other Ultrabooks such as the Dell XPS 13 9360, Lenovo Ideapad 720 Slim, or even the Asus ZenBook UX430UA - all of which share similar specifications but weigh a bit more than 1kg. If weight is an important factor in your buying decision, it will be really hard to beat the Swift 5. Keep in mind that battery life isn't great, so it won’t be easy to get through a full workday on a single charge unless you use this laptop very conservatively. The trackpad is a bit fiddly too, and there’s no SD card slot.

Acer Swift 5 (SF514-52) review – ultra-thin daily driver
Source: Laptop Media English
Acer Swift 5 (SF514-52) is truly an interesting device. It definitely won us with its design, and left us very impressed with its lightness. What we mean is that when you walk around with the laptop in your hand it almost seems unsafe because you don’t feel any weight in your hand. Despite that the aluminum body is sturdy, and the cold touch is very pleasant. This review actually shows us that the benchmarks don’t always give us real representation of the true performance of a device.

The Acer Swift 5 hits several of the right marks when it comes to a slim notebook. It is super light and therefore ultra portable, as well as being well designed and eye catching. Add to that a large enough display that is also detailed, along with decent battery life, and the Swift 5 looks like a good choice at R14k.

Acer Swift 5 SF514-52T-82WQ

The Acer Swift 5 SF514-52T-82WQ is Acer’s classic “ultrabook”: a compact clamshell laptop with a compact and light construction. The one thing user will notice as soon as they take this laptop out of the box is it's incredibly lightweight. Acer says it weighs 0.95 kg (2.1 lbs), which is unmatched by other ultraportables with a 14-inch screen and latest generation hardware. Two aspects made this possible, which are an entire magnesium alloy build and a small battery. The outer-shell and inner-chassis are made of different magnesium alloys (magnesium-lithium for the outer-shell and magnesium-aluminum for the inner deck), so the Swift 5 doesn’t feel cheap or flimsy in any way. The finishing is also quite nice as it feels soft to the touch, but with a slightly rougher texture that does a surprisingly good job at hiding away smudges and fingerprints. While the older Swift 5 got a 54 Wh battery, the new Swift 5 is only equipped with a 36 Wh battery inside. It will only provide less than 4 hours of battery life for everyday multitasking and any activity that involves browsing. From this, it is clear that Acer has compromised battery life for a lightweight build. The Swift 5 comes with a compact and light 45 Wh power adapter, but there’s no quick-charging implemented and a full charge is going to take about 1 hour and 30 minutes. For display, the Acer features a 14" Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution display with multi-touch and CineCrystal. Cinecrystal is the brand name Acer uses for their glossy screen display technology. It also indicates that it is a newer LCD display that uses LED backlighting. The viewing angles and contrast are decent and even the color-gamut is fairly alright, but the brightness is definitely subpar at only up to 200 nits. The Swift 5 is built with a KabyLake-R Core i7-8550U processor, 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB SSD storage. This laptop actually gets two M.2 slots inside, so a user can even connect two SSDs in RAID for extra speed. Acer went with a very basic cooling implementation on this Swift 5, with one fan and one heat pipe. Cool air is sucked from the generous intakes on the bottom and blown through the cut behind the hinge. For connectivity, Acer went with an Intel dual-band AC 7265 wireless module that also includes Bluetooth 4.1. The drivers, the 2×2 MIMO system of the antenna and perhaps the magnesium case all join forces and make this Swift 5 one of the fastest performing notebooks. As far as the typing experience goes, the keys have a soft smooth finishing and feel nice to the touch. The trackpad is wide and aligned a little to the left of the laptop. Acer also integrates a fingerprint sensor on this laptop, beneath the arrow keys, which is properly sized and works well with Windows Hello. The Swift 5 SF514-52T-82WQ is a high performance ultrabook for the professional businessmen/women that need something with more style and is ultra-portable. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Lightweight performance mimosa. At just 930 grams (2.05 lbs) the touchscreen-equipped laptop seems to be the perfect business companion. We take a closer look at much more than just Swift's processor and RAM. What are the notebook's inherent compromises, and what else did Acer have to sacrifice along the way?

Powering the notebook is an 8th-gen Intel Core processor – which processor ultimately depends on how much you want to spend. You can also stuff in up to 1TB of SSD storage and up to 16GB of RAM inside, though again it depends on the configuration and how much coin you want to drop.

But the Swift 5 stands alone in putting a big display that’s perfect for getting work done into a laptop this unfathomably light. It might look boring, be filled to the brim with bloat, and lack Thunderbolt 3, but those quibbles aren’t enough to completely sink what’s ultimately an endearingly portable laptop.

Acer Swift 5 (2020) initial review: The lightweight leader is back
Source: Pocket Lint English
This laptop is all about delivering a lightweight solution that doesn't compromise in terms of capability. It's got all the ports and power you could want - and there's less screen bezel than its predecessor - yet doesn't tip beyond the 1kg mark on the scales. The Swift 5 could well be the lightweight laptop leader.

Acer has taken a solid ultraportable laptop and made it even better with this 2019 upgrade, boosting the performance, removing a couple of annoying quirks and adding in WiFi 6 future-proofing. As a result, this is a great all-round device for students, professionals and everyone else who hits the road most days of the week. Given the very respectable asking price, this all-new Swift definitely gets my blessing.

Acer Nitro 5 (2019) review: A great budget-conscious laptop, at least for the moment
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Honestly the only aspect of the Nitro 5 that gives me pause is longevity. Look at that Rise of the Tomb Raider benchmark again: The GTX 1650 struggles with a four-year-old game. You’re definitely not going to max out most of 2019’s biggest releases, and it’s only going to get worse from here. On the other hand, it’s about $800. Would I recommend saving up an extra $150 to $200 for Acer’s beefier Predator Helios 300, reviewed in July? Yes, absolutely. But if you simply can’t, or if you plan to buy a cheaper laptop and upgrade more often, then the Nitro 5 is a respectable entry-level machine. The build quality far surpasses what I’d expect from a laptop this cheap, and the internals are “good enough,” for what that’s worth.

Hands on: Acer Swift 5 at IFA 2019 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Acer Swift 5 isn't only a fantastically lightweight and space-efficient laptop that’s nice to look at, it brings Thunderbolt 3 and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity to the table, as well as a Core i7 Ice Lake processor. While I’ve not been able to do cursory benchmark tests, based on the promise of the 10th-gen processors, my feeling is that this could be a great value-for-money proposition – especially if Acer is able to keep the new Swift 5’s below the £1000 mark.

With a new hinge design, optional discrete graphics and powerful Intel Core i processors, this lightweight laptop delivers strong on the specs-to-price ratio. The build quality and trackpad isn't perfect, and we doubt battery life will be great, but as Windows laptops around the £1000 mark go there's a lot of positives.

Source: Tech Advisor English
After some hands-on time, there's really very little to dislike about the Acer Swift 5. This is a laptop with a really nice balance of design, specs and price. Although we need to find out what you get for the cheapest model before we make any final decision. The powerful model we've seen has a 10th-gen Intel Core i7, 512GB SSD and Nvidia MX250 graphics meaning it's able to compete with the likes of Dell, HP and Apple. All of this comes inside a stylish and extremely lightweight chassis which has an unsually decent array of ports.

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.

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.

There are several laptops and tablets lying around my apartment but I found myself grabbing the Swift 5 over the others. That's because the Swift 5's staggeringly lightweight chassis required little effort to carry around and I could reliably count on there being enough battery life remaining. I also really enjoyed watching content on the 14-inch, 1080p display, which is plenty vivid and blocks reflections.

So where's the catch? The magnesium-rich casing may feel closer to plastic than aluminium to some fingers. If you can shrug off the superficial, only the trackpad could do with a level-up. But that's one reason the price starts at under £800, rather than closer to £1000.

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.

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

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.

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.

Despite limited cooling capabilities in a merely 15 mm thin case Acer's Swift 5 featuring Intel's latest Tiger Lake CPU seems to be a giant leap forwards when compared to Intel's 10th gen processor. Even more importantly GPU performance seems to be in a whole different league. Laptops with dedicated entry-level GPUs will have to take note.

On the other side, you won’t be able to upgrade your memory, as all of it is soldered to the motherboard. This also means that you would need to pick the 16GB version if you are planning to disable the dGPU. Also, the keyboard and touchpad are average, while the fingerprint reader is very fast and secure.

Most of my complaints here are super-minor.

The other is that I'd like audio to be better, and that's probably my only real issue.

Acer Swift 5 Review: Being Thin and Light Comes at a Price
Source: PC Quest English
The Swift was a little lighter though, so could be a better option for portability, though this means less cooling capacity, so less performance when under heavy load. Overall, I thought the Acer Swift 5 was fine, it’s a nice little laptop that I had no trouble using, it’s just that nothing in particular stood out to me as being amazing, or bad for that matter, it just seems a little pricey to me, but that’s typically the case with smaller and lighter weight machines like this.

So these are a couple of things that I like about the Swift 5 so far. Compared with my current Swift 3 laptop, I would say that the former is a pretty big improvement especially for the Antimicrobial display which is also a touchscreen with Corning® Gorilla® Glass. In terms of price tags, the 8GB variant is RM3999 whereas the 16GB variant is RM4999.

But the Swift 5 does compromise a bit on the usability aspect. A flimsy typing experience and the inclusion of an anachronistic dedicated power adapter hurt the Swift 5’s value proposition, and relegate it to a niche of people who care about performance above most other things. As it stands, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the XPS 13 are better choices in the premium ultraportable laptop category, while the ZenBook 14 is a better option that won't break the bank.

80% Acer Swift 5 (Late 2020) Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Acer Swift 5 is a great Ultrabook for those who want to work on the move thanks to a lightweight design, stellar battery life and competitive performance. However, concerns over the build quality may convince you to spend extra for a Dell XPS laptop, or move over to the MacBook Air.

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 HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series).

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.

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 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.

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.

Intel Iris Xe G7 96EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 96 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

Intel Iris Xe G7 80EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 80 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

Intel Kaby Lake:

i5-7200U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.5 to 3.1 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.

i7-7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.

Intel Kaby Lake Refresh:

i5-8250U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,100 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.

i5-8550U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.

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.

Intel Ice Lake:

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.

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.

Intel Tiger Lake:

i7-1165G7: An energy-efficient quad-core processor of the Tiger Lake product family designed for the sleeker laptops. The i7 is manufactured on the second-gen 10 nm Intel SuperFin process and has the Iris Xe G7 (96 EUs) iGPU running at 400 MHz to 1,300 MHz. The CPU cores run at 2.8 GHz (base clock speed @ 28 W TDP) to 4.7 GHz (single-core Boost frequency). The i7-1165G7 was the second-fastest CPU of the TGL-UP3 lineup at launch.

i5-1135G7: An energy-efficient quad-core processor of the Tiger Lake product family designed for the sleeker laptops. The Core i5 is manufactured on the second-gen 10 nm Intel SuperFin process and has the Iris Xe G7 (80 EUs) iGPU.

0.93 kg:

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

1.5 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


82.64%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
