Acer Swift 7 SF713-51

The Acer has indeed shifted away from producing mediocre functional machines to stunning power performers. It is hard not to be swept away by the good looks of the Acer Swift 7. The fact that it won the Good Design Award 2016 comes as no surprise as it is alluring with its matte aluminium exterior and bronze-gold interior. Acer also claims it to be the thinnest laptop (at 9.98 mm), thinner even than the HP Spectre. It is also incredibly lightweight at 1.12 kg (2.48 lb). Its dimensions measure at 1.02 x 32.51 x 22.86 cm (0.4 x 12.8 x 9 inch). Carrying this ultrathin laptop around is a non-issue and it stands as a solid attention grabber. Moreover, comes with the Precision touchpad, which provides ample width for navigation and gesturing control. What the Swift 7 scores in style is not conceded by its substance. It boasts a 13.3-inch (1920 x 1080-pixel resolution) screen, which displays remarkably crisp visuals. Full HD resolution might not sound like much, but thanks to CineCrystal and IPS technology, it gives enough viewing pleasure. Extra protection is provided by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass. This increases the Swift 7’s damage resistance, which can withstand drops up to 2 times better than devices with other glass.

Specs-wise, it is powered by a 1.20 GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 8 GB of LPDDR3 RAM and a 256 GB SSD. Acer also ensures connectivity on the Swift 7 lives up to its name. With MU-MIMO technology, wireless performance is up to 3 times faster than with the previous 2x2 802.11ac. Two USB 3.1 Type-C ports allow faster data transfers, device charging and display output with one reversible cable. However, most USB 2.0 devices would be rendered almost obsolete on this machine (save with an adapter of course). The omission of a USB 2.0 port appears necessary in order to achieve the ultra-thinness of this laptop. It might come as a surprise, but users should expect to see similar port configurations in future ultra-thin laptops. And it would also be nice to see both Type-C ports capable of supporting Thunderbolt. It is again mind-blowing how the Swift 7 is capable of up to 9 hours of battery life despite such thinness. This surely will appeal those who require the added battery juice for longer productivity. Sound quality is equally impressive as it is boosted with Dolby Audio Premium and Acer TrueHarmony. It comes pre-installed with Windows 10 Home 64-bit. In all, Acer seems to have got it right on all fronts with the Swift 7 as it is leading both in style and substance. All these does come at quite a high price though. However, if price is not an issue, this ultra-thin laptop is the way to go.

Slim, Slimmer, Acer Swift 7! The trend towards slimmer devices keeps going on. Acer has now created the slimmest notebook in the world: less than 10 mm (~0.4 in) thick. We will check to see how well the Kaby Lake dual-core SoC works in our review.

Es gibt nur sehr wenig Negatives über das Acer Swift 7 zu sagen und dafür sehr viel Positives. Allerdings muss man hier vieles in Relation setzen, was das Acer Swift 7 erreichen will: Ein wirklich herausragendes Design in Verbindung mit hoher Portabilität. Natürlich letzteres in Form von Akkulaufzeit und Kompaktheit. Und beides erreicht das Acer Swift 7 in einem wirklich sehr hohem Masse.

Getting your hands on the Swift 7 should cost you no less than R24 999, which is what Acer recommended the price at when it debuted at IFA late last year. That said, some online retailers are listing it at just under the R20k mark (Takealot), which makes it one of the better priced premium notebooks around, provided you know where to look.

100% Review: Acer Swift SF713-51 is a smooth operator
Source: PC Authority English
Not only is it faster and thinner than the competition, it’s also very competitively priced, basically equal to that of the Razer and XPS 13 when they’re similarly specced. As a result, we have to give the nod to the Swift as arguably our favourite new Ultrabook, though we would love to see a larger SSD and touchscreen in future.

60% Acer Swift 7 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Acer is selling the Swift 7 in select stores and on Flipkart at Rs.99,999, making it line up against the Dell XPS 13 and the HP Spectre 13, both of which have now been refreshed with Kaby Lake Core i5 processors but cost around Rs.10,000 more than their original prices. All things considered, you're probably better off putting in that extra money and buying either the Dell or HP. This doesn’t mean the Swift 7 is a bad product but we feel that it simply isn't competitive enough.

80% Acer Swift 7 review: Has Acer finally cracked high-end laptop design?
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Acer Swift 7 is one of the thinnest laptops in the world, and it costs a bit less than some in this class. Add a good trackpad, a decent screen and a solid-if-shallow keyboard and you have a great ultra-portable machine for work and the sorts of time-wasting most of us do on our laptops.

The Acer Swift 7 is shown on the Acer website for $1099, but Amazon is currently selling it for $999. As its top-of-the-line Swift computer and for the price, I was a bit disappointed in the i5 processor. This laptop ought to have an i7 processor.

Acer Swift 7 Review: A Thin, Sleek, Kaby Lake Powered Ultrabook
Source: Hot Hardware English
We don’t think the Acer Swift 7 will let users down when it comes to durability though. The laptop is much sturdier than its thin design portends and it is quite attractive in our opinion. It should hold up to the bumps and bangs of daily use just fine, and will looks good doing it. Buyers who are looking for a stylish laptop for casual use or light business duty should be satisfied with the Swift 7’s staid performance, and will likely appreciate its relatively affordable price point and dig its good looks and strong battery life.

Acer Swift 7 review – making the Apple Macbook look fat
Source: Laptop Media English
The Acer Swift 7 is a great piece of equipment or jewelry. It’s absurdly thin, light, compact and portable. It will serve you well during the day with good battery life, enough computing for browsing, office work and multimedia. Speaking of which, the screen offers excellent properties – it’s crisp, bright enough for indoor use, vivid and uses PWM only below 17% brightness making it virtually harmless to your eyes.

Acer's new Swift 7 almost nails it in every aspect, be it design, performance or the battery. If you want a powerful crazy thin laptop, the Acer Swift 7 is your best option. Of course, the Rs 99,999 base price is a bit high, but you're getting the slimmest laptop in the world with the latest processor out there.

Acer Swift 7 Review: The Thinnest Laptop in The World with All of Its Drawbacks

Acer Swift 7 is incredibly slim. If portability is the biggest consideration, this ultra-thin book is a solid choice. However, if you are looking for great device performance without caring about how thin it can be, there are better options for that.

Acer Swift 7 review: The world's thinnest laptop is starving for power
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Thin might not be a substitute for portability or performance, but it does turn heads. Acer goes beyond that gimmick, though: The Swift 7 has a premium feel, with a sturdy frame, a decent and enormous trackpad, a pleasant keyboard, and a black-and-gold finish. (Of course, tastes vary, so that inner coat of gold could be viewed as either elegant or gaudy.)

Other complaints may seem minor, but are still worth noting. Foremost, the Swift 7 is also missing a touchscreen. (You only miss it when it’s gone!) And under load, portions of the chassis can get scorchingly hot—particularly the bit directly above the keyboard. Finally, while the four-and-a-half-hour battery life isn’t appalling, it’s a lot less than the “up to 9 hours” Acer promises.

The Acer Swift 7 takes its place as the current thinnest Windows laptop on the market. While it has impressive battery life and a beautiful screen, you have to make compromises to get them that you don't with rivals like the HP Spectre 13 and the New Razer Blade Stealth. If you're willing to give up a bit of performance for ultimate portability, the Swift 7 is a good choice, but at this price point, we'd recommend instead getting something with a more powerful processor to help keep the laptop feeling faster longer.

This computer can do everything for a compact laptop seeking patron, run his YouTube videos, MS Office and even image editors on the go.

Acer’s Swift 7 has a lot of competition, and at $1,100, it’s not a bargain. But the Asus Zenbook 3 is the only competitor in its category that we’d buy instead, and even there, it’s a question of priorities. The Zenbook 3 is smaller, yet faster. But the Acer Swift 7 will keep working after the Zenbook’s battery goes flat.

Acer missed a golden opportunity with the Swift 7. The $1,099 laptop is one of the prettiest, thinnest laptops I've seen this year. And while it has a lovely display and lasts over 7 hours on a charge, this beauty is lacking in the brawn department.

The Acer Swift 7 is advertised at the thinnest laptop out there at the time of this post (September 2016), and despite that, it's actually very well built and packs solid features. However, I feel that its footprint, keyboard, IO and even screen and battery life were sacrificed in one way or another to meet the sleek aesthetic requirements, and I for one am not happy with the trade.

With a launch price of €1,299 in Europe (around £1,326 inc VAT), presumably for a Core i7 model, this is an expensive machine. If this turns out to be an accurate specification and price, the Swift 7 will offer better value than the 12-inch MacBook but will be more expensive than the powerful HP Spectre 13.

The Acer Swift 7 is a tough proposition for me, but if the world’s slimmest laptop catches your fancy, and you don’t mind the Swift 7’s “okay” battery life and somewhat limited processing power, it is a mighty fine option. It’s not a laptop I would personally buy, but it’s definitely one I enjoyed using.
Positive: Solid workmanship; nice design; compact size; decent autonomy. Negative: Average performance.

Acer Swift 7 SF714-51T

The Acer Swift 7 SF714-51T is one of the first traditional notebooks with eSIM compatibility and integrated LTE. Users can surf the net when away from a WLAN source without the need to insert any SIM card as long as the carrier supports the feature. Fortunately, a nano-SIM slot is still available for users who prefer to connect the traditional way. The ultra-skinny Swift 7 looks supremely sleek and futuristic at only 8.98 mm thick. That is pretty mind-blowing really, especially when considering it actually thinner than a number of recent and new smartphones. In comparison, the Spectre 13 and Zenbook 3 are 10.4 mm and 11.9 mm thick, respectively. A thin profile also equates to a lightweight product and the Swift 7 is a true featherweight at around 1.2 kg. Firstly, the narrow bezels have allowed Acer to upgrade the size of the display from 13.3-inch on the outgoing model to a 14-inch Gorilla Glass touchscreen on this latest redesign. The undeniably good-looking laptop features an all-black aluminum design. Its design integrates the antenna into the unibody chassis. It might not come in handy very often, but the screen can fold back 180 degrees from the shut position. That means it is not a 2-in-1 convertible but is certainly flexible. Since Intel did not update its Y-series ultra-low-voltage processors last year, the 2nd generation Acer Swift 7 is based on the 7th Generation dual-core Core i7-7Y75 SoC featuring the Kaby Lake microarchitecture and a 4.5 W TDP. The CPU is accompanied by 8 GB of LPDDR3 RAM as well as a 256 GB PCIe SSD. The 14-inch screen of the Swift 7 finds a fine balance of features, opting for a Full HD resolution rather than anything higher, which ought to aid battery life. Bezels are smaller and the Full HD IPS display is now touch sensitive, which these days users found far more useful than when laptops first started getting touch support. The display showed good color, brightness and was also responsive. The webcam has been moved to below the screen to allow for the size jump and Acer has also added a fingerprint scanner to the left of the keyboard for Windows Hello log in. Connectivity options are limited to just two USB Type-C ports. The laptop features a backlit keyboard and 2x2 MIMO wireless-ac. When it comes to battery life, Acer rates the new Swift 7 model to work for up to 10 hours. The Acer Swift 7 might not be perfect for 2018 but it is an amazingly thin laptop that will no doubt be a great choice for those looking for a travel companion. The Acer Swift 7 SF714-51T is really suitable for people who are looking for a reasonably priced laptop with higher performance. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Between a touchpad that doesn’t click to its aging, fanless processor, the Acer Swift 7 is an absolutely gorgeous Ultrabook – the ‘world’s thinnest,’ in fact – that we simply can’t recommend in a sea of laptops that are far more powerful and not much thicker for the same price or less.

The Swift 7 isn't as powerful as you might expect from a laptop costing well over £1,500/$1,500, so if you're looking for a professional-level laptop capable of running high-end graphics or design software then there are options available with more compute power.

Overall, Acer's Swift 7 is an impressive bit of kit. It's got some pretty decent specs for such a tiny and lightweight device, but those who were hoping to take advantage of Intel's most efficient chips yet might be best holding off before splurging on the Swift 7. Especially considering it'll retail for a rather ridiculous starting price of $1,699, which is around £1,250 (plus VAT).

We'd like slightly higher specs at this new higher price but you do get a Core 7, larger touchscreen and a fingerprint scanner. Check back for a full review soon.

Acer Swift 7 is currently the thinnest computer in the world
Source: CNet English
The Acer Swift 7 has lots of competition thanks to the bevy of ultraportable laptops available, though having an older seventh-gen processor is a knock against it, especially at these prices. Its high price tag may dissuade those shopping on a budget, but the laptop will surely catch the eye of anyone with cash to spend who's interested in a fancy new machine.

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.


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 615: Integrated graphics card in some Kaby Lake Y-series processors (4.5 Watt TDP) with 24 EUs (GT2) and no dedicated graphics memory. Clocks with Update to 1050 MHz depending on the CPU Model.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i5:

7Y54: Extremely efficient ULV-SoC (System-on-a-Chip) for tablets and fanless notebooks based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Includes two CPU cores clocked at 1.2-3.2 GHz with Hyper Threading support as well as a graphics adapter and is manufactured in a 14 nm 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.  

7Y75: Extremely efficient ULV-SoC (System-on-a-Chip) for tablets and fanless notebooks based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Includes two CPU cores clocked at 1.3-3.6 GHz with Hyper Threading support as well as a graphics adapter and is manufactured in a 14 nm process.
