Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-43-R34S
It sports a sober and elegant look with its thin and light light silver design.
This versatile laptop as easily transportable as an Ultrabook is equipped with good connectivity consisting of 1 USB-C, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or TV for example, Wi-Fi ax modules(newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac)and Bluetooth 5.2 for wireless remote connections and communications, an audio port as well as 2 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 devices.
As a fingerprint reader is integrated, one can authenticate by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology.
The keys of the chiclet keyboard can be backlit which is very convenient to better distinguish them in low light atmosphere.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen benefits from significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. It also lends itself very well to the display of videos and more broadly High Definition content because it adopts a 16/9th format associated with a precise Full HD definition. In addition, as it is anti-reflective, the screen offers better visibility in bright environments (e.g. outside) than a shiny slab.
The blue light emitted by the screen is also attenuated by up to 30% by Acer BluelightShield technology.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-43-R34S
The Acer Swift 3 SF314-43-R34S may be of interest to those looking for a stylish compact High Definition laptop designed for versatile everyday use on the go.
It benefits from SSD storage whose large capacity of 1 TB competes without worry in this area with hard drives.
As a bonus compared to the latter, let’s remember the advantages of an SSD: greater shock resistance, silence of operation, lower energy consumption and greater velocity.
In practice, the SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, software starts/stops, processes and launches are much faster and we reach the cards of online games faster.
While no dedicated graphics card is embedded, you can indeed look at photos but also run light games on this thin and light laptop thanks to the Radeon Vega 7 graphics solution integrated into the processor.
This one is a Ryzen 5 5500U, AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) processor Hexa Core low power Lucienne. It is here combined with a good amount of RAM of 16 GB to deliver good overall performance to satisfy many users.
However, if the goal is to often perform CPU and/or graphics intensive work, it is better to turn instead to a PC with a non-low-power processor and/or an appropriate dedicated graphics card.
But this will have an impact on autonomy in particular.
But this one represents a real asset for this versatile laptop silver elegant because it is established around 11 hours on battery in light use. This is all the more appreciable because with its lightness, compactness and finesse, this PC as easily transportable as an Ultrabook is easy to carry.
