Reviews for the Acer Swift Go 14 SFG14-72

Intel Meteor Lake Analysis - Core Ultra 7 155H only convinces with GPU performance | Notebookcheck
Intel drops the familiar naming scheme for the new Meteor Lake generation and the latest mobile processors are called Core Ultra from now on. Intel promises a big performance increase for the new Arc GPU as well as increased efficiency, which we tested.
Update: NPU Performance and power consumption during AI benchmarks
Acer Swift Go 14 review - The Meteor Lake Core Ultra 7 impresses with its AI core | Notebookcheck
At least since the Pixel 6, co-processors for AI applications have found their way onto smartphones. Now the neural network accelerators can also be found on Windows laptops such as the Acer Swift Go 14 with the Intel Core Ultra 7 155H. This is one of the first laptop processors with an NPU.
80% Acer Swift Go 14 (2023) Review
Source: PC Mag English
Intel’s Core Ultra 7 processor propelled the Swift Go 14 to the top of our performance charts, especially in the graphics tests, thanks to its new integrated Arc graphics. An aluminum build, a snappy keyboard, a bright screen, and a broad port selection also earn it points. Reasonable pricing naturally goes a long way, too. However, this Swift Go's performance comes with a serious fan noise penalty; if you’re looking for a silent-running laptop, this isn’t it. We also wished Acer included better speakers. The Asus Zenbook 14 OLED remains our top ultraportable pick for most users, but this Acer and its Core Ultra chip make a fine combo if you’re seeking maximum performance on the go.

60% Acer Swift Go 14 review: The AI laptop has arrived
Source: Tom's Guide English
The Acer Swift Go 14 is a great little ultraportable for the price. While the display isn't amazing and the speakers are a bit weak and tinny, for $999 you're getting what you're paying for. You're also getting a useful port array, a satisfying keyboard and plenty of speed for work and some light gaming. And while the 10-hour tested battery life isn't amazing, it's good enough that you're often safe to carry this laptop to the office or coffee shop without having to worry about lugging a charger, too. But as far as the big new banner Meteor Lake features go, I'm a little disappointed. Partly that's because there just isn't much useful or fun stuff you can do with the Meteor Lake NPU at this point, at least not any better than you could by just opening a browser and firing up CatGPT or whatever suits your fancy.

80% Acer Swift Go 14 (2024, SFG14-72) review: Acer’s OLED compact goes Meteoric
Source: Expert Reviews English
It’s all going to be about the price. Acer says the new Meteor Lake Go 14 will start at £899 but doesn’t say if that’s for the OLED model. Assuming little change from the current Swift Go 14 OLED range that would suggest a UK price of around £1,000 for the 16GB OLED model and £1,100 for the 32GB version, which would make the Acer £250 cheaper than the 16GB Zenbook, which Asus is advertising for £1,299. The Zenbook delivers a faster, more colour-accurate display with a touchscreen interface and stylus, better battery life and a superior speaker system. The Swift Go counters with better overall performance, a brighter display, faster SSD and a higher definition webcam. Neither machine is likely to disappoint, although the Acer should offer better value for money, which was what we liked most about the 2023 model and the 2022 Swift 3 before it. The increased performance from Intel’s latest silicon, especially when it comes to graphics, is most welcome, though, whichever one you opt for.

Hands on: Acer Swift Go 14: a well-priced laptop that offers so much value
Source: Techradar English
The Acer Swift Go 14 is a marvel of great design choices, a beautiful OLED display, a great webcam, excellent specs, and a solid port selection. And this isn't even counting the price point, which is stunning in its own right. But when you factor in all the features, you have a laptop that thinks it's an Ultrabook but without the overinflated MSRP.

80% Acer Swift Go 14 (2024) Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
In many respects, the new Acer Swift Go 14 is a better showcase for the Core Ultra 7 than the Asus Zenbook 14 OLED. It’s faster across most productivity and creative benchmarks and it makes more of the Arc iGPU when it comes to gaming. The OLED screen is fantastic and neither the ergonomics nor the battery let the side down. It’s a great laptop if you want a little more power in a portable package. You could argue that its Asus rival has the edge on the overall experience, matching the Swift Go 14 for its screen and feature set, but on a slimmer, quieter device with a better keyboard. However, the Acer is substantially cheaper at a £899 starting price compared with the £1,099 of the Asus, so it’s easy to forgive its minor failings and live with its underwhelming keyboard and slight lack of style.

Acer Swift Go 14 hands-on review: Meteoric
Source: Stuff TV English
With exact specs and prices still TBC, it’s tricky to say how the Acer Swift Go 14 stacks up against its ultralight competition. There will be no shortage of rivals launching in early 2024, now that Intel has officially launched its Core Ultra chips, and the MacBook Air continues to loom large over the class. I’m a big fan of the Acer’s multi-purpose touchpad, though, and the OLED screen option is especially easy on the eyes. If it can deliver on its battery life claims (and those AI enhancements start to show their usefulness) I could see it being a very capable machine for on-the-go working.

80% Acer Swift Go 14 (Intel Core Ultra) review: Watch out, MacBook Air M2, there’s a new sheriff in town
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Acer Swift Go 14 helps usher in the age of AI PCs, and it does so beautifully. Where Intel’s integrated graphics were disappointing in the past, the integrated Arc GPU handles most tasks like a champ. At the same time, the NPU allows both the CPU and GPU to hand off tasks so they can focus on creating a premium experience for users. The ability to edit 4K videos smoothly, unplugged, and render them quickly on the Acer Swift Go 14 was a revelation. This performance, coupled with its generous 16GB of RAM and 1TB SSD, positions it as a compelling affordable alternative to the MacBook Air M2. Yes, the MacBook Air M2 might boast longer battery life (14 hours), but the Swift Go delivers a respectable all-day usage while offering several crucial advantages. At $999, the Swift Go 14 undercuts the MacBook Air M2 by a significant $800 for the same 16GB and 1TB configuration.

75% Acer Swift Go 14 (2024) Review: Meteor Lake Laptop Offers Present Gains, Future Promises
Source: CNet English
The Swift Go 14 is an odd choice for a launch partner, although I suppose the laptop's dull design puts the focus on Intel's new Meteor Lake CPU. The generic Swift Go 14 is like the background that AI blurred to highlight the laptop's processor. The immediate benefits of the Core Ultra 7 are its efficiency that resulted in a long battery life, and the new integrated Arc graphics are a clear step up from Intel's previous integrated GPU -- along with modest gains in application performance. As software developers begin to update or introduce new applications with AI features that can take greater advantage of the Meteor Lake NPU, the allure of the Swift Go 14 will grow. But by then, I'm afraid there will be more alluring laptops from which to choose.

78% Acer Swift Go 14 review: An affordable Intel Core Ultra debut
Source: PC World English
The Acer Swift Go 14 with Intel Core Ultra 7 155H is a competent and well-rounded laptop sold at an affordable price. Its dull design is made up for with strong connectivity, a pleasant keyboard, and useful extras like a 1440p webcam. Intel’s 14th-gen processor doesn’t greatly outperform the 13th-gen hardware but remains strong in multicore tests and comes paired with improved integrated graphics, though battery life remains a problem. The Go 14’s overall performance, alongside a price cut from Acer, makes it a good choice for those looking to buy a portable yet speedy laptop at a sub-$1,000 price.

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.


78%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
