Acer Swift 3 (2020) review: An 8-core Ryzen laptop for $650

 

The Acer Swift 3 now comes in a Ryzen 4000 edition, and it just might be the most powerful budget laptop ever made. Our review walks you through the highlights.

Solid build quality ; Supreme performance ; Great value ; Comfortable keyboard

Mediocre touchpad ; Dim display, narrow color gamut

Acer Spin 3 (2020) Review

 

Stylus and carrying sleeve included ; Thunderbolt 3 port

A few ounces overweight ; Unremarkable screen and keyboard ; Mediocre webcam

With a fast-charging bundled stylus and a full-flex rotating screen, the 2020 Acer Spin 3 is a solid convertible laptop choice for users who'd like to dabble in drawing or handwriting.

Acer’s Swift 3 is a solid laptop for students

 

A simple laptop with a top-notch processor.

Great performance for the price ; Light, portable body ; Backlit keyboard ; Plenty of ports

Dim display ; Budget-laptop design ; Bloatware ; No Thunderbolt 3 on AMD version

But overall, the Swift 3’s sturdy build, decent battery, and compact form render it a solid choice for its target demographic: students and anyone else looking for a portable device that won’t break the bank. It’s not the best laptop on the market in...

Its AMD Ryzen processor is attention-grabbing but the whole ultraportable package for less than $650 makes the Swift 3 worth your attention.

Acer Swift 3 (2020) Review

 

Bright and colorful 3:2 aspect ratio display ; Great battery life ; HDMI and Thunderbolt 3 ports

Tepid CPU performance ; No SD or microSD card slot

A squarish 3:2 aspect ratio display helps the affordable, fully loaded Acer Swift 3 stand out from the ultraportable crowd.

Acer Spin 3 2020 review

 

The Acer Spin 3 is an affordable 2-in-1 with a stylus, but it struggles to outpace its competitors

Stylus included ; Decent variety of ports ; Fingerprint-resistant chassis ; Thunderbolt 3 port ; Affordable

Middling performance ; So-so battery life ; Dim display

The Acer Spin 3 is a budget-friendly 2-in-1 with a cool stylus, but has middling performance, a dim display and below-average battery life.

Acer Swift 3 (2020) review

 

The Acer Swift 3 is an exercise in price and compromise

Portable, lightweight chassis ; Multitasking muscle ; Affordable

Mediocre battery life ; Dim display ; Sluggish SSD

The Acer Swift 3 is an affordable, portable laptop with solid multitasking chops, but it doesn’t have the best battery life.

Acer Swift 3 (2020) review: Delivering a lot for the money

 

The 2020 Swift 3 brings a 3:2 aspect ratio screen, while squeezing the bezel compared to its predecessor. Here's our first impressions.

Slim and light and rigid ; Lots of power per pound ; Has Thunderbolt 3 ; Ultra-practical matt screen

Plastic trackpad ; Weak speakers ; Not quite all-day battery life

Acer has classed-up the once ultra-budget Swift 3 line with a magnesium-aluminium alloy case and some higher-end insides. The result is a good alternative to more expensive options like the Dell XPS 13 and MacBook Pro 13.

Acer Spin 3 (2020) initial review: Versatile without costing a fortune

 

If you want a laptop with a versatile hinge mechanism that doesn't cost a fortune, the Spin 3 has a lot going for it. Here's our first impressions.

If you're looking for a laptop with a 360-degree hinge that doesn't cost a fortune, the 2020 Acer Spin 3 has a lot going for it. It's not got a premium build, but it dresses itself up well given the asking price.
