Acer Swift 1 review

 

Acer's Swift 1 shows not all low-cost laptops need to be thick, clunky or bad on battery life.

The Acer Swift 1 is a thin, lightweight budget-friendly laptop that has a few higher-end features that make it a more attractive deal than competing systems at its $329 price. Battery life is good at more than 9 hours.

Its low-end components mean it can't do much beyond basics and its limited storage will likely require some external option.

The Swift 1 is cheap, looks nice and has a good battery -- just don't give it anything more difficult to do than web browsing.

Acer Swift 1 SF114-31-P6F6 Notebook Review

 

Enduring mobility. Acer's 14-inch laptop pleases with its silent system and very long battery life. This is due to the combination of a Braswell processor and high-capacity battery. With a price of 400 Euros (~$422), it is also an affordable device.

matte screen ; noiseless system ; decent keyboard ; 128 GB of eMMC storage ; 2-year warranty ; very good battery life

dark, low-contrast, viewing angle dependent screen ; PWM at max. brightness without power supply ; no upgrade options ; no Type-C USB ; below-average WiFi data rates

The Swift 1 is the lowest-performance and cheapest model in Acer's Swift lineup. However, it does not need to hide. Although the casing is mainly made of plastic, the Swift 1 can be described as stylish. This is also due to its slim exterior. The Swift...

Lovely laptop, if only it worked..

 

Lovely laptop, great smooth design, yet it keeps crashing (most likely down to issue with laptop rather than the software). Argos say they refund or replace faulty products, yet they don't have any in store.. ANYWHERE! Was told I could get a refund,...
