Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-59-51AK
Rechargeable for 4 hours in 30 minutes, this slim and light versatile Ultrabook has a sleek look with its light silver design.
It is equipped with a good connection made up of 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a monitor or a TV for example, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, an audio port but also 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.
Via Windows Hello technology and the fingerprint reader, you can authenticate yourself biometrically.
In addition, the keys of the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is practical to distinguish them correctly when the ambient light is reduced.
The screen is adorned with IPS technology and thus has significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. It also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content such as videos by its definition Full HD specifies its 16 / 9th format. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-59-51AK
The Acer Swift 3 SF314-59-51AK is a slim and lightweight compact High Definition laptop designed for everyday versatile use on the go.
Easy to carry thanks to its lightness, compactness and finesse, this versatile Ultrabook will be of particular interest to nomads because it can last about 9 hours on battery in light use.
To do this, it relies on energy-efficient components like its SSD storage which is more energy efficient than a hard drive while being more shock resistant, silent and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops, processing and software launches, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
More generally, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive. As a bonus, it offers a large capacity of 1 TB rivaling what hard drives offer, enough to accommodate multiple files and software.
The right amount of onboard 16GB RAM is also low power, as is the Intel Tiger Lake i5-1135G7 Quad Core processor.
This core delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users.
That being said, if you often want to perform work that requires CPU and / or GPU resources, you should rather opt for a PC with a non-low-power processor and / or an adequate dedicated graphics card.
However, thanks to the benefits of the Iris Xe solution integrated into the Quad Core i5, which are superior to those of the classic Intel UHD 620, we can watch photos and videos but also play titles that do not require too much graphics resources.
