Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer Swift 3 SF314-58G-55WG
With its aluminum frame in fine and light silver finish, it sports a sober and elegant design.
This versatile Ultrabook has good connectivity including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.1 for remote connections and communications, video output Practical HDMI for easy connection to a monitor or TV for example, an audio port as well as 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 devices.
Via Windows Hello technology and the integrated biometric reader, you can authenticate by fingerprint recognition on this laptop PC.
A backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is very practical for distinguishing its keys in case of limited ambient light.
With its precise Full HD definition and 16: 9 aspect ratio, the screen lends itself well to displaying High Definition content, especially videos. Its anti-reflective treatment also makes it more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors). The screen also benefits from IPS technology, which provides comfortable vertical and horizontal viewing angles.
Performance, battery life of Acer Swift 3 SF314-58G-55WG
The Acer Swift 3 SF314-58G-55WG is a compact High Definition laptop computer designed for everyday versatile use on the go.
Fairly easy to transport thanks to its thinness, compactness and controlled weight, this Ultrabook can last about 7 hours on battery in light use in terms of autonomy.
To do this, it relies on energy-efficient components such as its low-power Comet Lake i5-10210U Quad Core processor. This is coupled with 8 GB of RAM. As a result, with this Ultrabook, we obtain good general performance capable of satisfying many users.
However, to often perform processing that is heavy in processor resources, it is better to turn to a PC with a non-low consumption processor.
The storage is entrusted to an SSD more energy efficient than a hard drive but also silent, more robust and much faster. And with its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity in phase with the standard of hard drives.
Of course, if you need additional space, you can rely on an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.
Concretely thanks to the SSD, we benefit from a much more fluid and responsive operation than with a hard drive. This implies, for example, much faster starts / stops and launches of applications as well as processing, or a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Because it is possible to play with this thin and light laptop PC if you are satisfied with games that do not require too much 3D resources. It is indeed equipped with a dedicated graphics card GeForce MX250 from NVIDIA. Of course, with it, you can also watch photos and videos just like with the Intel UHD 620 part housed in the Quad Core i5 Comet Lake.
It is the Intel UHD 620 which is privileged to the maximum by the onboard NVIDIA Optimus technology. And this despite its much more modest benefits because it consumes less energy which promotes autonomy. The switch between the Intel UHD 620 and the GeForce MX250 is performed automatically and in real time by Optimus depending on the tasks performed.
