Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift 5 SF514-55TA-53DP
Very light with its weight limited to 1 Kg, this thin versatile laptop has an appearance that is both sober, elegant and original due to its green design.
The connectivity integrated into this Ultrabook is good, including 1 USB-C Thunderbolt 4, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules(more powerful and recent than Wi-Fi ac)to communicate and connect remotely, an audio port but also 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than in USB 2.0 if plugged into USB 3.0 devices.
It is possible to authenticate by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology because a fingerprint reader is integrated.
The chiclet keyboard is adorned with a backlight system, enough to better distinguish its keys in low light atmosphere.
The screen adopts 100% sRGB and IPS specifications thanks to which the colors displayed are more faithful than average while the vertical and horizontal viewing angles are important. Due to its Full HD definition and 16/9th aspect ratio, the screen is well suited for High Definition content such as videos.
Although it cannot be transformed into a Tablet, the screen stands out for its multi-touch touch technology. We can therefore, by pressing/gestures of at least one finger applied to the slab, interact with the system and software. To protect the screen, Acer covers it with antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
As it is touch, the screen is treated bright. This implies bright colors but also a sensitivity to reflections in bright environments (eg outside), which may be regretted by the most nomadic.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Swift 5 SF514-55TA-53DP
The Acer Swift 5 SF514-55TA-53DP targets those looking for a very lightweight compact Windows 11 laptop for versatile use on the go.
It delivers good overall performance able to suit many users as it integrates 16 GB of RAM coupled with a low-power Intel Tiger Lake Quad Core i5-1135G7 processor. It incorporates theIntel Iris Xe ,a graphics solution whose performance is significantly higher than that of intel UHD 620 classic.
With this thin and light green Ultrabook, you can watch photos and videos but also
run games that are not too greedy in 3D resources. In addition, it is also possible to perform from time to time modest treatments taking advantage of RAM and multi-core architecture.
However, it is better to opt for a PC with a non-low-power processor and / or a dedicated graphics card adequate if we plan to often perform work demanding in processor and / or graphics resources.
SSD storage ensures much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a hard drive. Because an SSD is much faster but also more robust, more energy efficient and quiet.
Thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster software launches, for example, as well as starts/stops and processing, or a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
With its 512 GB, the SSD here embedded offers a capacity in line with the standard of hard drives. But if this proves to be too fair, we can obviously use an external storage unit. Favoring a Thunderbolt/USB-C/USB 3.0 device is then an interesting option to benefit from fast transfers.
Finally, regarding the autonomy of this versatile tactile Ultrabook whose compactness, finesse and great lightness facilitate transport, count on about 10 hours of operation on battery in light use.
