Reviews for the Acer Swift 7 SF714-52T-75G4

Acer Swift 7 (July 2019) review: The ultimate thin-and-light laptop's flaw is still performance
Source: Good Gear Guide English Archive.org version
The Swift 7 reigns supreme as the ultimate thin-and-light PC. Its performance may be modest, and its heat output slightly worrisome. The webcam is one of the worst we’ve used. The LG Gram, another ultralight PC, heartily outperforms it—but the Gram weighs 2.5 pounds, and the Swift 7 weighs just 1.84 pounds.

The Acer Swift 7 breaks records with its slim, light design, but the cut-down exterior doesn’t add practical advantages. Elsewhere it’s good, but no better than rivals while costing more. It’s a good talking point, but as a laptop it’s no better than cheaper competitors.

60% Acer Swift 7 (2019) review: Slim and light fails to succeed
Source: Pocket Lint English Archive.org version
While the Swift 1, 3 and 5 are easy to recommend, the Swift 7 is not. It costs a packet, it's not that powerful, and the build quality is poor for the sake of keeping it ultra-thin and ultra-light. It does have an impressive screen though, which is what we come back for above all else. Overall: it's specialised but not successful for the masses.

Comment

Intel UHD Graphics 615: Integrated graphics card in some Amber Lake Y-series processors (5 Watt TDP) with 24 EUs (GT2) and no dedicated graphics memory. Clocks with up to 1000 MHz depending on the CPU Model.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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


i7-8500Y: Extremely efficient ULV-SoC (System-on-a-Chip) for tablets and fanless notebooks based on the Amber Lake architecture which is basically a Kaby Lake chip produced in the improved 14nm+ process (no 14nm++) with higher clock speeds and 5 Watt TDP. Includes two CPU cores clocked at 1.5 - 4.2 GHz with Hyper Threading support as well as a graphics adapter. Fastest Amber Lake-Y chip at the time of announcement.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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: In 1976, the company was founded in Taiwan under the name Multitech and was renamed Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals. Since 2007, the group has merged with Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell, which also market their own laptop product lines.

Acer computers are designed for a variety of purposes, including ultrabooks for mobile use, gaming laptops for gamers, affordable options for everyday tasks, and 2-in-1 convertible laptops for versatility. Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.


70.75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
