Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-59-54J8
It sports a completely original design with its blue color present both inside and outside, and thus does not leave indifferent.
This versatile Ultrabook rechargeable 4 hours in 30 minutes integrates good connectivity with its USB-C, its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for connections and communications at distance, its audio port, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a monitor or TV for example without forgetting its 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.
A fingerprint reader is part of it, what to authenticate biometrically via Windows Hello technology.
A backlighting system is also fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is useful for distinguishing its keys when the ambient light is reduced.
As it adopts IPS technology, the screen displays colors more faithful than the average as well as important viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. It is also well suited to High Definition content such as videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-59-54J8
The Acer Swift 3 SF314-59-54J8 is a slim and light 14-inch compact High Definition laptop computer designed for everyday versatile use on the go.
In terms of battery life, this Ultrabook with its original blue design can indeed last about 9 hours on battery in light use. This is all the more appreciable as it is easy to transport thanks to its compactness, finesse and lightness.
Despite everything it delivers good general performance able to suit many users because it embeds a good amount of 8 GB RAM coupled to an Intel Quad Core i5-1135G7 low consumption Tiger Lake processor.
The latter also houses the Iris Xe graphics solution . However, its performance is clearly superior to those of the classic Intel UHD 620.
In practice, thanks to the Iris Xe, you can look at photos and videos of course, but also run games that do not require too much 3D resources, while preserving lightness. But temperatures rise noticeably when this thin, versatile laptop is in heavy demand.
As for storage, Acer opts for a silent SSD but also less energy than a hard drive, more robust and much faster.
On a daily basis, the SSD clearly reinforces the fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, we benefit from much faster starts / stops, processing and software launches, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Here we find a 512 GB SSD, a capacity similar to standard hard drives. What if we need more space? You can use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C- / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.
