More and more people are starting to move away from big and bulky laptops to devices that are lighter and offer better mobility and while the move from a 15.6 inch display to a 14 inch display may not seem like a big deal it can make all the difference in the world when on the go. Today we are looking at the Acer Swift 3 SF314-51 which features a 14 inch display which seems to be a great balance between mobility and having enough viewing area to make your experience a pleasant one. Below we will go over some of the benefits and downsides we were able to find on this model and see if it might be the right choice for you.
Processor: Intel Core i3
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 128 GB SSD
Screen: 14 Inches
OS: Windows 10
The typical full sized laptop tips the scales at about 2.5 KG but the Acer Swift 3 SF314-51 weighs in at just 1.5 KG and that full KG difference is a big deal when you have to haul a laptop around for extended periods of time. This combined with the long lasting battery which will give you up to 10 hours on a single charge makes this a great option for those who do not plan on sitting in one location when using this device.
This model isn’t going to blow you away with the performance it can provide but when comparing to other budget models it does offer a bit more since it includes an I series processor, Intel Core i3 to be exact. This combined with 8 GB of memory and a fast performing SSD drive gives it just enough performance for the average user to run all their must have applications without maxing out the ability of the laptop.
Acer has made sure to include some newer and must have technologies in this setup as well like USB 3.1 Type-C, 802.11ac wireless and a fingerprint reader for extra security.
If you are expecting huge amounts of storage for all of your important and not so important files on the Acer Swift 3 SF314-51 you may be left disappointed. The SSD drive that is included does help boost performance but by only coming in a 128 GB size it won’t take long for the average user to fill up all the available space.
You won’t find much room if you are somebody that plugs in plenty of external devices at one time as only 2 USB ports are available.
The Acer Swift 3 SF314-51 may have its flaws but at the same time offers a great combination of portability and decent performance that will be enough to allow most to overlook them. This combined with the friendly price should make it a very popular option for the average laptop user.
