Deal | Acer Swift X price drops a whopping 32% bringing the Ryzen 7 5825U-powered laptop to lowest rate in 120 days on Amazon
The Acer Swift X (SFX14-42G-R607) is a stellar mid-tier notebook with powerful internals and an attractive price. The machine is now going for a massive $350 off on the list rate on Amazon which has brought the price down to the lowest level in 120 days per Honey (via slickdeals). For the final rate of US$749.99, the Acer Swift X packs a capable Ryzen 7 5825U, an RTX 3050 Ti, 16 GB of RAM, and 512 GB of SSD storage.
According to LaptopMedia’s review of the Acer Swift X (SFX14-41G) with a slightly slower Ryzen 7 5800U, the laptop has an understated, sturdy metal construction with very little flex. The inputs are also serviceable as the backlit keyboard features average travel and feedback while the trackpad boasts a large footprint, accurate tracking, and good responsiveness.
The 14-inch FHD display on the Acer Swift X is excellent per LaptopMedia’s testing. The panel covers 97% of the sRGB gamut alongside an average brightness of 376 nits and an impressive 1890:1 contrast ratio.
Moving on to performance, the Acer Swift X will coast through day-to-day tasks such as word processing, web browsing, and media playback. Thanks to a speedy Ryzen 7 5825U and a dedicated RTX 3050 Ti mobile GPU, the notebook can even handle content creation workloads and light to moderate AAA gaming at 1080p. Finally, the Acer Swift X’s battery life is also stunning as LaptopMedia measured a run time of slightly over 15 hours for web browsing and close to 12 hours for video playback.
Simply put, the Acer Swift X gets almost everything right when it comes to affordable laptops. The machine on sale could very well be among the best value propositions on the market.
