Acer Swift 5 2020 review: Tiger Lake comes into its own

 

The Acer Swift 5 is redesigned for late 2020, with Intel's latest Tiger Lake update and some innovative new chassis technologies.

Performance that lives up to Tiger Lake's promise ; Very thin and light ; Solid build quality ; Good keyboard and touchpad

Below-average battery life ; A little expensive

Acer Swift 5 (2020) review

 

A featherweight laptop that packs a serious punch

Colorful 14-inch display ; Featherweight design ; Great looks ; Good battery life ; Priced to sell

Frustrating keyboard layout ; Only 8GB of RAM (for now) ; Weak speakers

Acer's Swift 5 delivers a vivid 14-inch display and long battery life in an impossibly lightweight chassis.

Acer Swift 5 (2020) initial review: The lightweight leader is back

 

The 2020 version of Acer's Swift 5 upgrades processor and graphics, trims the bezel, while keeping its mass to sub-1kg for ultimate portability.

This laptop is all about delivering a lightweight solution that doesn't compromise in terms of capability. It's got all the ports and power you could want - and there's less screen bezel than its predecessor - yet doesn't tip beyond the 1kg mark on the...

Acer Swift 5 (2020) review

 

Very little is sacrificed for a sub-1kg weight

Extremely thin ; Solid battery life ; Good performance ; Quiet fans ; Vivid, rich screen

Plastic trackpad ; Feels less swish than an aluminium laptop ; Very weak speakers

An ultra-light laptop that doesn’t throw everything out to shed those grammes

Acer Swift 5 (Late 2020) Review: Light and Bloated

 

Light on weight, but not power.

Thin and light ; Unique color ; Strong performance

Lots of bloatware ; Some keyboard flex

The Acer Swift 5 is a thin laptop without any compromises on performance. But you'll need to spend time uninstalling a lot of bloatware, and the frame has a little bit of flex.

Acer Swift 5 (2020) Review: Featherweight Fighter

 

Acer's latest iteration of the Swift 5 ultra light is able to keep up with contemporaries at a fraction of the cost.

Great price for the specs ; USB Type A and Type C ports ; Very lightweight

Grainy webcam ; Tinny speakers

The Acer Swift 5 is a lighter and cheaper approach to premium laptop design, offering mid-level productivity at a more approachable price point than competitors.
