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.

Excellent laptop

Lightweight bargain

 

Just what I wanted, light, strong (rigid metal case) and good battery life. The keyboard is easy to use, even with my big hands. It starts up very quickly. My only real gripe is that the hinge does not open as wide as I would like so it's a bit tricky...
