Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift 3X SF314-510G-502G
With its compact and lightweight blue design, this versatile Ultrabook has a look that is both original and discreet.
This slim laptop PC runs Windows 10 Pro, a more complete edition than classic Windows 10 with its advanced network management and security tools like BitLocker.
You can also authenticate in a simple and secure way by biometric recognition via the integrated fingerprint reader and Windows Hello technology.
It has good connectivity with its USB-C Thunderbolt 4, its wireless Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, its video output Practical HDMI for easy connection to a monitor or TV for example, its audio port without forgetting its 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect it USB 3.0 peripherals.
The chiclet keyboard can of course be backlit, which is useful for better distinguishing its keys in a dimly lit environment.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has large vertical and horizontal viewing angles and offers more faithful than average colorimetry. In addition, the screen lends itself well to the display of videos and more generally High Definition content thanks to its 16: 9 format and Full HD definition. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
As a bonus, Acer BlueLightShield technology is present, which has the effect of attenuating up to 30% the blue light emitted by the screen.
Performance, autonomy of the Acer Swift 3X SF314-510G-502G
The Acer Swift 3X SF314-510G-502G is for those who are looking for a thin and light High Definition compact laptop intended for everyday versatile use on the go.
Easy to transport thanks to its compactness, finesse and lightness, this Ultrabook will interest all the more nomads as it can last about 11 hours on battery in light use in terms of autonomy.
To do this, it relies on energy-efficient components such as its good amount of 16 GB RAM and its low-power Tiger Lake Quad Core i5-1135G7 processor.
This houses the Iris Xe graphic part (tested by us) . It comes with the dedicated Intel Iris Xe Max graphics card .
If both allow you to watch photos and videos but also to play titles not too greedy in graphic resources, the Iris Xe Max is more powerful.
As Deep Link technology is present, the capabilities of the Iris Xe can be coupled with those of the Iris Xe Max to accelerate processing taking advantage of GPU computing power.
Clearly, this thin and light versatile laptop PC delivers good overall performance that is suitable for many users.
However, with a view to frequently performing work that consumes processor and / or graphics resources, it is better to opt instead for a PC based on a non-low consumption processor and / or an appropriate dedicated graphics card.
In any case, the storage is to match, entrusted to an SSD that is more energy efficient than a hard drive while being more resistant to shocks, silent and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, we benefit from software launches, treatments and starts / stops much faster than with a simple hard drive, but also from a faster arrival on the cards of online games for example.
In addition here we find an integrated SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB easily competing with hard drives in this area.
