Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Swift 3 SF314-57-5784
It sports an original design with its blue chassis and takes advantage of Acer BluelightShiels technology to attenuate the blue light emitted by the screen.
In terms of connectivity, this Ultrabook is well equipped with its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, its useful HDMI video output in order to easily connect it to a monitor or TV for example, its audio port, its USB 3.1 Type-C or its 2 USB compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices to it.
You can authenticate on the system by fingerprint recognition via Windows Hello technology thanks to the integrated biometric reader.
In addition, the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is very practical for distinguishing its keys in the event of limited ambient light.
As it adopts IPS technology, the screen offers more faithful colorimetry than the average as well as large vertical and horizontal viewing angles. It also lends itself well to displaying High Definition content and in particular videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outside) than a glossy screen.
Performances, autonomy of Acer Swift 3 SF314-57-5784
The Acer Swift 3 SF314-57-5784 is a thin and light compact High Definition laptop for everyday mobile use.
It is indeed easy to transport because of its lightness, its compactness and its finesse. In addition in terms of autonomy, we can expect about 8 hours on battery in light use.
To do this, it relies on energy-efficient components such as its SSD storage which is more energy efficient than a hard drive but also more shock resistant, silent and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, the fluidity and the reactivity of this Ultrabooks are much better than if it was based on a simple hard drive. This implies much faster application launches and starts / stops.
Here, a 512 GB SSD is on board, a capacity that rivals hard drives. And if you need additional space, you can use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution for obtaining fast transfers.
The SSD supports the heart of this thin and light computer which delivers general performance capable of satisfying many users. It consists of a Quad Core i5-1035G1 processor with low consumption Ice Lake and 8 GB of RAM.
Of course, you can watch photos and videos on this PC, which is however not designed for games and more generally demanding graphic work. No dedicated graphics card is indeed present, all graphics being managed by the Intel UHD 620 part integrated into the Quad Core i5.
