Ultrabook with an original pink design, the Acer Swift 3 SF314-59-54J8 is nomadic with its 9 hour battery life. This slim and light 14-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen laptop is based on an Intel Tiger Lake Quad Core i5 processor with Iris Xe integrated graphics for good overall performance and the ability to support not-too-demanding games. This versatile laptop PC also benefits from fast SSD storage which enhances its responsiveness, a biometric reader, a backlit chiclet keyboard but also USB-C and Wi-Fi ax connectivity.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-59-542Z
It does not leave indifferent in terms of design with its pink color present both on the hull and inside. Thin and light, this Ultrabook can be recharged from 4 hours in 30 minutes.
Its connectivity is good, including 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, a useful HDMI video output in order to connect it easily to a monitor or TV for example, an audio port as well as 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 peripherals.
Biometric authentication is possible on this computer via the integrated fingerprint reader and Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard is adorned with a practical backlighting system for the keys to better distinguish them in the event of limited brightness.
For its part, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos because it adopts a precise Full HD definition in 16: 9 format. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, it is more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel. In addition, the screen benefits from large vertical and horizontal viewing angles due to its IPS technology.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-59-542Z
The Acer Swift 3 SF314-59-542Z is a slim and light 14-inch High Definition compact laptop for everyday versatile use on the go.
Built around a low-power Intel Tiger Lake i5-1135G7 Quad Core processor and a good amount of 8 GB RAM, this Ultrabook with its original pink design delivers good overall performance capable of satisfying many users.
And all the more so since the Core i5 houses within it the Iris Xe graphics part (tested by us) with significantly higher performance than those of the traditional Intel UHD 620.
Concretely, we can therefore watch photos and videos on this thin and light laptop PC but also run games that are not too demanding in terms of graphics resources.
However, due to the thinness of the chassis, temperatures rise when the processor (and its graphics solution) are under heavy strain.
The finesse, compactness and controlled weight of this Ultrabook, however, have the advantage of making it easily transportable. Nomads will appreciate it all the more since in terms of battery life, it can last about 9 hours on battery in light use.
The on-board SSD storage for its part clearly reinforces the responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, for example, we get faster on online game cards and we get much faster software launches, processing and starts / stops.
Capacity side, the SSD offers 512 GB, which corresponds to the standard of hard drives.
What if we need more space? You can rely on an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 / USB-C device then represents an advantageous solution to obtain fast transfers.
