Reviews for the Acer Swift X SFX14-41G-R2DS
Source: Ultrabook Review
This Acer SwiftX 14 is a balanced performance ultraportable able of snappy daily-use multitasking and some good capabilities in light workloads and games. It's also built well, offers a fair-quality matte IPS screen, alright IO, and long battery life. My gripes with this design are the single-fan thermal module that blows hot air into the screen and the poor audio quality, as well as the white-lit mushy keyboard. All in all, though, this is a good-value choice at around 1000-1100 USD/EUR, as long as you're willing to trade the performance you would get on a full-size laptop within a similar budget for the portability of this laptop.
