Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-59-792D
With its thin and light light silver design, this versatile Ultrabook sports a sober and elegant design.
It runs on Windows 10 Pro, a more complete system than classic Windows 10 with its advanced network management and security tools such as BitLocker.
You can authenticate on this rechargeable laptop 4 hours in 30 minutes by biometric recognition via the fingerprint reader and Windows Hello technology.
It is equipped with a good connection with composed of 1 USB-C, Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ax ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and to communicate and connect remotely, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a monitor or TV for example, 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 plugged into it.
The chiclet keyboard is equipped with a practical backlighting solution to better distinguish its keys in a dimly lit environment.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has large viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. It also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content such as videos thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-59-792D
The Acer Swift 3 SF314-59-792D is a slim and lightweight High Definition compact laptop designed for everyday versatile use on the go.
It will be of particular interest to nomads with its battery life of about 9 hours on battery in light use. And all the more so since it can be easily transported because it is light, compact and thin.
It must be said that it is based on energy-efficient components such as its 8 GB of low-consumption RAM like the Intel Quad Core i7-1165G7 Tiger Lake processor.
This integrates the Iris Xe (which we tested) , a graphics solution with much higher performance than those of the classic Intel UHD 620.
Concretely, this elegant silver Ultrabook delivers good general performances. With it, you can watch photos and videos but also run games that don’t require too much 3D resources.
However, we gain by turning to a PC equipped with a non-low consumption processor and / or an appropriate dedicated graphics card if the objective is often to carry out heavy work in terms of processor and / or graphics resources.
But this implies less battery life in particular.
As for storage, we are dealing with a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in phase with the standard of hard drives. In addition, compared to the latter, an SSD offers several advantages: it is more energy efficient, silent, more resistant to shocks and much faster.
The presence of the SSD implies better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than with a simple hard drive. Thus, for example, we take advantage of much faster software launches, processing and starts / stops, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Obviously in case we need more space, we can rely on an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to obtain fast transfers.
