The Acer Swift X is uniquely positioned to offer very good performance for creators while still being highly portable and compact, which is rare to find. It looks good, performs well, and has a comfortable keyboard as well as a bright and vivid display. Battery life is also pretty satisfactory, even though it doesn't quite live up to Acer's claims. If I had to knock a few points off, then that would be for the average quality webcam and lack of an SD card slot. I'm not a big fan of the cramped direction pad either. The Swift X runs very hot when stressed, particularly when gaming, which is to be expected since this chassis wasn't exactly designed with gaming in mind. The Acer Swift X could be a very good option if you want an ultraportable with reasonable battery life that can handle content creation software and even some games if the occasion calls for it. However, if gaming is a priority, then I'd recommend looking at Acer's Nitro or Asus' TUF series of laptops, which offer more competitive specs and better cooling for roughly the same or even lower prices.

We didn’t anticipate this. We knew that the Swift X is a really promising prospect, but we didn’t see that coming. Gone are the days where you need a bulky device for your professional needs, or to play the latest AAA titles. The technology has gone so far that an ultrabook that weighs 1.39 kilos has enough processing power to completely obliterate the full-blown 45W chips from the last couple of years.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
In former time,s this weight was typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, often 15 inch laptops weigh as much.
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.
80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
