Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-43-R2J5
With its thin and light light silver design, this laptop that rivals Ultrabooks adopts an elegant and discreet look.
This compact versatile laptop has good connectivity with its USB-C, its Wi-Fi ax modules(newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac)and Bluetooth 5.2 for wireless remote connections and communications, its convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or TV for example, its audio port or its 2 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices.
It is also possible to authenticate by fingerprint recognition via Windows Hello technology and the integrated biometric reader.
We appreciate being able to backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish them when the ambient light is reduced.
The screen will interest fans of High Definition content such as videos because it adopts a precise Full HD definition associated with a 169th format. As a bonus, it has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology. Due to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable than a shiny slab in bright environments (e.g. outdoors).
Acer BluelightShield technology also reduces the blue light emitted by the screen by up to 30%.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-43-R2J5
The Acer Swift 3 SF314-43-R2J5 is a sleek, compact High Definition laptop for versatile on-the-go use.
It incorporates an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Hexa Core Ryzen 5 5500U Lucienne processor coupled with 8 GB of RAM to provide good overall performance able to suit many users.
And all the more so since the Ryzen 5 directly embeds the Radeon Vega 7 graphics solution. Certainly modest, it allows you to look at photos and videos but also to indulge in light games.
SSD storage clearly enhances responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, starts/stops are much faster, for example, as are processing and launching applications, and we reach the maps of online games faster.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also less energy-consuming, more rouste and silent. With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity similar to the standard for hard drives. However, in the event that this is insufficient, you can always use an external storage unit such as a USB-C/USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
As for battery life, bet on about 11 hours of battery operation in light use for this versatile computer silver elegant as easily transportable as an Ultrabook thanks to its compactness, finesse and lightness.
