Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift 5 SF514-55T-59E4
Lighter than average with its weight of 1 kg, this slim Ultrabook features an elegant, discreet and original design with its Gold color.
It is equipped with good connectivity including 1 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4, wireless Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more efficient and recent than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, an audio port but also 2 USB (compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0), USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than in USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
Thanks to the integrated fingerprint reader, you can authenticate by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit which is very practical for distinguishing its keys in case of limited ambient light.
The screen will be of interest to lovers of High Definition content such as videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. In addition, it adopts 100% sRGB and IPS characteristics. As a result, the screen reproduces colors more faithfully than average while ensuring wide vertical and horizontal viewing angles.
The screen is distinguished by its touch technology allowing interaction with the system and software by simply placing at least one finger on it, by pressing / gesturing. The tactile aspect involves a brilliant treatment which gives punch to the colors but is sensitive to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
In addition, you must be aware of the fact that this Ultrabook cannot be converted into a Tablet because it does not open 360 °.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Swift 5 SF514-55T-59E4
The Acer Swift 5 SF514-55T-59E4 is for those who are looking for a very light compact laptop for everyday versatile use on the go.
In terms of battery life, this Ultrabook can indeed last about 9 hours on battery in light use. This will interest all the more nomads as this computer is easy to transport thanks to its finesse, its compactness and above all its lightness with its featherweight of 1 kg lower than the average.
However, this portable PC with an elegant and discreet Gold design delivers good general performance able to suit a number of users. Because it integrates 8 GB of RAM associated with a Quad Core i5-1135G7 Tiger Lake processor, low consumption just like the RAM.
These energy-efficient components of course promote battery life. But to often perform work that requires processor resources, it is better to turn to a PC with a non-low consumption processor, which in turn has an impact on battery life.
Logically considering the finesse and lightness of this laptop, there is no dedicated graphics card on board here. However, you can watch photos and videos but also play titles that do not require too much graphics resources with this computer.
Because it benefits from the performance of the Intel Iris Xe solution (which we tested) significantly superior to those of the classic Intel UHD 620.
As for storage, Acer logically opts for an SSD because it consumes less energy than a hard drive but also more robust, silent and much faster.
In practice, the SSD clearly reinforces the responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. For example, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from faster starts / stops, processing and software launches, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
