Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift 3 SF313-53-76TR
With its thin and light light silver design made of aluminum and magnesium-aluminum alloy, it sports an elegant and discreet look.
It can be recharged for about 4 hours in about 30 minutes.
This Ultrabook is equipped with good connectivity with its USB-C Thunderbolt 4, its wireless modules Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax(newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac)to communicate and connect remotely, its hdmi video output convenient to easily connect it to a monitor or TV for example, its audio port or its 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
As a fingerprint reader is integrated, one can authenticate by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard is of course adorned with a practical key backlight solution to better distinguish them in low light atmospheres.
This versatile ultraportable clearly stands out for its screen adopting a 3:2 aspect ratio offering much more vertical space than the classic 16/9th, which is convenient for users using applications that require scrolling, such as office automation or Internet surfing. In addition, the screen adopts a QHD definition higher than Full HD and therefore ready for (Very) High Definition.
In addition, the screen benefits from IPS technology with sRGB, which implies more faithful than average colors with significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical.
If the colors are revived by the brilliant treatment of the screen, it implies a sensitivity to reflections in bright environments (eg outside), which nomads may regret.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Swift 3 SF313-53-76TR
The Acer Swift 3 SF313-53-76TR may be of interest to those looking for a thin and light compact High Definition laptop for versatile everyday use on the go.
Thanks to its compactness, finesse and lightness, this versatile Ultrabook is easy to carry. It will be of particular interest to nomads as it can last about 8 hours on battery in light use.
To do this, it relies on energy-efficient components such as its SSD storage whose large capacity of 1 TB rivals hard drives.
Above all, an SSD consumes less power than a hard drive while being quiet, more shock-resistant and much faster.
In practice, the SSD guarantees a much better responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis than a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts/stops, processing and software launches, or a faster arrival on the maps of online games.
The SSD supports the 16GB of RAM and the low-power Intel Tiger Lake Quad Core i7-1165G7 processor. This core delivers good overall performance that can satisfy many users.
This being said to often perform cpu and / or graphics resource-intensive work, it is better to turn instead to a PC with a non-low-power processor and / or a suitable dedicated graphics card.
But this will affect weight and autonomy.
In any case, the Iris Xe graphics solution whose performance is significantly higher than that of the classic Intel UHD 620 somewhat compensates for the lack of a dedicated graphics card.
Because the Iris Xe allows you to watch photos and videos but also to play titles not too demanding in graphic resources.
