Chassis, connectors, Acer Swift 5 screen SF514-54T-79W0
It sports an elegant, original design with its slim magnesium-lithium chassis with smooth shell and blue color.
This ultra-light Ultrabook has good connectivity including Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax ( more powerful and recent than the Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, an HDMI video output convenient for the easily connect to a TV or monitor for example, an audio port, 1USB 3.1 Type-C or 2 USB (compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0), USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device.
One can identify himself on the system by fingerprint recognition thanks to the integrated biometric reader, and this via the Windows Hello technology.
A backlight system equips the keys of the chiclet keyboard which is convenient to distinguish them in a dim light.
The screen is distinguished by the fact that it is tactile: by applying at least one finger on it, by pressure / gestures, one can interact with the system and the software. However, since it can not open 360 °, this Ultrabook can not turn into a tablet.
With its IPS and 100% sRGB characteristics, the screen offers a more accurate colorimetry than average as well as very comfortable vertical and horizontal viewing angles. It lends itself well to displaying High Definition content and especially to videos because of its precise Full HD definition and its 16 / 9th format.
The treatment of the screen is brilliant because of its tactile aspect. As a result, it revives colors but is sensitive to reflections in a bright environment (ex: outdoor).
Performance, battery life of Acer Swift 5 SF514-54T-79W0
The Acer Swift 5 SF514-54T-79W0 targets those looking for a lightweight, compact laptop for versatile, everyday use.
Nomad, it is clearly with its autonomy of about 7 hours of battery operation in light use. And especially with its lightness, its weight being less than Kilo.
It must be said that it incorporates energy efficient components such as SSD storage. With 512 GB, the SSD competes with hard drives in terms of capacity while being much faster, more shock resistant, more energy efficient and quiet.
Thanks to the SSD on a daily basis this thin and thin PC is significantly more fluid and responsive than if it were based on a hard disk. Starting / stopping and launching software are thus much faster.
The heart of this versatile blue computer is up to it. It consists of 8 GB of RAM and an Intel Core 10th Generation Ice Lake Low Power Quad Core i7-1065G7 processor. This duo delivers good overall performance to satisfy many users.
Unlike many Intel processors, here the integrated graphics solution is not the classic Intel UHD but the Iris Plus Graphics and specifically G7 for this model. As a result, we get better graphics performance in phase with those of a dedicated graphics card.
As shown in our dedicated test for the Ice Lake i7-1065G7 Quad Core , the Iris Plus Graphics is less than a GeForce MX250. It allows to play titles not too greedy in graphics resources but also of course to watch photos and videos.
