Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift 3 SF316-51-767L
This thin and light versatile laptop sports a sleek look with its dark silver chassis.
It is equipped with good connectivity including 1 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules(more powerful and recent than Wi-Fi ac)to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, an audio port or 2 USB 3.2 (USB 2.0 / 3.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than in USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
As a biometric reader is integrated, one can authenticate by fingerprint recognition via Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard is obviously adorned with a practical backlight solution so that you can better discern its keys in case of limited ambient light.
The screen is treated anti-reflective to seduce nomads because it offers better visibility than a shiny slab in bright environments (eg outside). In addition, the screen lends itself very well to the display of videos and more broadly High Definition content because it adopts a 16/9th format associated with a Full HD definition. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen also has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles while reproducing colors more faithfully than average.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Swift 3 SF316-51-767L
The Acer Swift 3 SF316-51-767L is for those who are looking for a processor-efficient and lightweight laptop for versatile mobile use.
It delivers solid overall performance able to satisfy a maximum of users because it relies on a good amount of RAM of 16 GB as well as a Quad Core i7-11370H Tiger Lake-H processor.
In addition, the latter directly integrates the Iris Xe, a graphics solution with significantly higher performance than the classic Intel UHD 630.
Concretely thanks to the Iris Xe, you can watch photos and videos but also indulge in games not too greedy in 3D resources.
No dedicated graphics card embedded however in this Ultrabook which does not target demanding gamers.
However, it may interest some creators because its core guarantees faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a low-power Quad Core, the difference being particularly noticeable in areas requiring RAM and CPU resources exploiting multi-core, such as photo editing or video editing.
We appreciate to find in terms of storage an SSD because it is silent while being more resistant to shocks than a hard disk, more energy efficient and much faster. As a result, thanks to the SSD, software launches are much faster, for example, as are processing and starts/stops, and you can get to the maps of online games faster. In general, the SSD ensures a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a hard disk.
Finally, the autonomy is a strong point of this versatile laptop performance because it is about 9 hours on battery in light use for this Ultrabook whose finesse and controlled weight facilitate transport. However, expect noise and heating when this mobile computer is strongly pushed (eg treatments).
