Reviews for the Acer Swift Go SFG16-71
Clear the stage for the slick speedster in an aluminum case. The Acer Swift Go 16 comes with a powerful Intel Core i7-13700H, a high-contrast OLED display and a stylish aluminum case. Not to mention that it's also quite light for a 16-inch laptop.

The Acer Swift Go 16 is a solid laptop, though one built for a particular buyer. Its lackluster GPU performance means it can’t handle games or GPU compute tasks, so it’s only suitable for basic productivity or apps that only tap the CPU’s resources. If that sounds like your workflow, the Swift Go 16 could prove a respectable value, as it undercuts the price of alternatives the LG Gram 16 and Lenovo ThinkPad T16, and Samsung Galaxy Book Ultra.

The Acer Swift Go 16 isn't a perfect desktop replacement, but it boasts great productivity performance for the price and a simply splendid high-res OLED display. Its good build quality is the icing on the cake. The laptop's main flaw is a clumsy, disappointing keyboard, but it's not the worst I've ever used, and connecting an external keyboard for long typing sessions is a fair tradeoff to get everything else the Swift Go 16 delivers.

There’s a lot to like about the Acer Swift Go 16’s performance. It scored high in some of our benchmarks and held its own against more expensive laptops, like the Lenovo Yoga 9i Gen 8 and LG Gram 17, even the MacBook Air M2. It’s no gaming laptop, either, but it will easily manage all the browser tabs you throw at it, and make major productivity apps like Excel fly. Its design is elegant as well, even if it does borrow a lot from the MacBook Pro school of design. The build feels as solid as a MacBook, while the weight would almost fool you into thinking the laptop is built out of plastic. (Just the trackpad.). But the Acer Swift Go 16 gets warm. Not enough to burn you or make your skin uncomfortable, but the fans do spin up quite often, even when you’re not pushing the laptop.

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.
