Reviews for the Acer Swift Go 16 SFG16-71

The new Acer Swift Go 14 bets everything on the performance of Intel’s Core i7-13700H. That bet doesn’t pay off. It’s true that Intel’s Core i7-13700H can deliver superior performance in CPU-intensive tasks. This, however, requires a sacrifice in graphics performance most potential owners won’t find appealing. The Swift Go 14 also struggles to deliver on battery life despite the lack of discrete graphics, which is a problem for a thin, light laptop. Acer’s inexpensive base MSRP of $1,099.99 helps to forgive these flaws, but it’s ultimately not enough to make the Swift Go 14 stand out from a crowded field of similar laptops.

Today, we had a fantastic device in our office. With the exception of a few minor flaws, it is a product that will satisfy all your office and home needs. It has a sleek exterior, which is thin, light, and well-built. Thanks to the aluminum body panels and rigid structure, you can be confident and feel the premium spark of the product. Interestingly, its hardware varies from relatively powerful to a beast. Unfortunately, there is no dedicated graphics available, but you can still play most of the popular low-intensity games on the market. However, the best thing about it might just be the display. Unfortunately, we were not able to get ourselves the OLED option. However, its IPS unit is definitely not something to be messed with. Acer Swift Go 16 (SFG16-71)’s IPS panel has a WUXGA resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and a very good contrast ratio. It covers 86% of the sRGB color gamut.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
