Acer Swift X SFX14-51G-79RJ
Reviews for the Acer Swift X SFX14-51G-79RJ
Source: Laptop Mag
We can’t provide a definitive opinion on the Acer Swift X (14-inch) just yet, but so far I’m more disappointed than I am impressed. It has a nice display and design, and so far the keyboard isn’t the greatest and the speakers are straight up bad. However, the Swift X has a lot of unknowns in the performance arena. Plus, since this is a pre-production model, there’s a chance that the things I’ve taken issue with here will be vastly improved in the laptop’s final version. But we’ll just have to wait for the ultimate version of the system to land at our testing facility. Stay tuned for the official review.
