Stylish, powerful and lightweight, Acer Swift 3 provides a great computing experience for a range of users
An ultra-portable notebook with a sleek chassis, stylish design and slim bezels, not to mention great performance and long battery life—that’s Acer Swift 3 for you.
There is no doubt mobile phones are very handy and adept at undertaking basic computing tasks normally performed by laptops, but there’s no replacing the latter; a number of people (myself included) aren’t yet ready to give up their slightly larger screens. I reckon that students, families and professionals who are constantly on the move will love the stylish and lightweight Acer Swift 3 notebook. It has a 14-inch Full HD IPS3 screen, comes with plenty of ports and is available in steel gray and millennial pink, weighing 1.19kg. It retails for Rs59,999 and I have been using it for the past fortnight, here’s a quick lowdown on its features and performance.
The new Acer machine is attractive, uncluttered, well-made and is powered by the Taiwanese firm’s own innovations. It uses advanced hardware and intelligent software to work hard and yet stay cool.
The first thing that will strike you about Acer Swift 3 notebook is that it’s elegant, light and powerful. It measures 319.5 x 217 x 15.95mm (W x D x H) in body dimensions. It packs a lot of power into its 15.95mm thin chassis with upto a 10th Gen Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor with Intel Iris Plus graphics and an optional discrete Nvidia GeForce MX250 GPU, keeping everything running at its optimum speed. In short, a new-age laptop for the modern day professional, student or home user.
Moving further, the Acer Swift 3 includes upto 512GB PCIe Gen 3×4 SSD storage, 16GB LPDDR4X RAM, Thunderbolt 3 and dual-band Intel Wi-Fi 6, for a smoother and more enjoyable wireless experience, making it an ultra-portable, supercharged laptop for work and play. It delivers upto 12.5 hours of battery life and offers fast charging capabilities. Just to give you a reference, 30 minutes of charging can provide 4 hours of battery life in video playback conditions. The Swift 3 brings images and videos to life through the use of thin 4.37mm bezels and an 84% screen-to-body ratio. For further colour enhancement, the laptop includes Acer Color Intelligence and Acer ExaColor Technology for enhanced, vivid images.
When I first got hands-on with the Acer Swift 3, I was impressed with its upscale look and feel. The keyboard is quite uncluttered and neatly laid out with decent amount of space. The display on the Swift 3 is great and will catch the most attention. I surfed the internet and watched a lot of snack videos on YouTube. The display on this computer can produce one of the cleanest, crispest and most vivid pictures found on a notebook this size. The Swift 3 simply outsmarts other notebooks in terms of display quality, sharpness, and viewing angles. The speakers are louder and clearer than any I have ever used on any other laptop or desktop. I was quite pleased with the volume on this machine.
The bottom line: If you want a smooth, versatile PC experience, go for this Acer machine. It has very good battery backup and is a stylish and portable powerhouse, ideal for those who travel a lot. Highly recommended.
