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.

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.

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.

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

84.3% Acer Swift 5 SF514 (i5-8250U, UHD 620) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
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.

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.

75% Acer Swift 5 Review: Big-Screen Featherweight
Source: The Verge English
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 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.

Acer Swift 5 (2019) initial review: Now with discrete graphics
Source: Pocket Lint English
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.

Acer Swift 5 (2019) review: Hands-on
Source: PC 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.

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

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.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 Kaby Lake Refresh:

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. 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 Ice Lake:

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.

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.


81.38%: 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.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
