Description

No one can deny the existence of Acer as a trendy brand for PC and laptops. From premium to budget and mid-range laptops, the company has something for everyone. One of the resultant product series is its Acer Swift series. The company has launched a refreshed AMD Ryzen 7 based Acer Swift 3 laptop. Let’s talk about this laptop in a bit more detail.

Design and Display

The looks and design of the laptop are something that I personally liked a lot. It looks a lot like any other premium ultrabook. The laptop has been made with Aluminium and Magnesium, making the laptop feel solid and modern. On top of that, the design of the laptop is also very minimal. The weight of the laptop is 2.65 pounds, and its dimensions measure 8.62-inches by 0.63-inches by 12.73-inches.

Coming to the laptop’s display, the machine has been greeted with a 14-inches panel with a Full HD resolution. That means the laptop screen has a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels which can easily be considered a crisp resolution. The panel is from LG with model number LP140WFA-SPD1 AH-IPS, and it is an IPS display panel with pretty decent color reproduction.

Performance

The laptop’s performance is also very commendable as it is providing a lot compared to the rest of the competitors. The laptop has an AMD Ryzen 7 4700U mobile processor. This is a 7nm-based processor, and hence it has a pretty power-efficient build. This processor has 8 cores and 8 processing threads which makes the laptop easily handle some nice productivity software like photoshop, Premiere Pro, etc. The processor works at 2.0GHz of base clock speed and can be boosted up to 4.1GHz.

The laptop relies on the integrated GPU embedded within the processor. The processor greets the consumer with an AMD Radeon RX Vega 7 GPU, a 7-core GPU, working at 1.6GHz. The laptop also has 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM with 3733MHz of frequency. And for storage, there is a 512GB of Samsung NVMe SSD for fast performance.

Keyboard and Touchpad

The laptop has a pretty nice keyboard. There is no num pad available, but this also makes the keys of the keyboard large enough to type comfortably. The click of the keys is also pretty satisfactory and smooth to type on. Also, the trackpad is decently large. However, I prefer a little larger size, but this size is also manageable enough to operate the complete machine. The trackpad supports the Windows Precision Drivers and can be used with all the gestures to operate the Windows OS.

Battery Backup

The battery backup of the laptop also comes out to be above average. It has a 3-cell battery pack with a 48Wh of battery capacity. With an efficient and powerful processor like Ryzen 7 4700U, this battery can easily deliver around 5-6 hours. The laptop also comes with a 65Watt AC power adapter to charge it.

Ports & Connectivity

The Acer Swift 3, being a pretty portable laptop, also serves a really nice set of ports and wireless connectivity options. There is a 3.5mm audio jack, one USB 2.0 Type-A port, one USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, one USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C port, an HDMI port, and an AC power input jack. For wireless connectivity, the laptop has Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth that serve brilliant wireless connections.

8.7Expert Score
When it comes to price to performance ratio and build, the Acer Swift 3 really stands out in its price range. It provides a very nice and commendable performance one can get at around $600. Its processor is really very capable and it'll not be wrong if I would say it's a CPU-focused laptop. If you are looking for a laptop that can provide the best possible performance for a $600 budget, the Acer Swift 3 SF314-42-R9YN is definitely a great choice.
