Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift 5 SF514-55TA-5521
It has an original look with its frame that rises slightly forward when opened and is thin and very light with its weight of 1 kg.
The connectivity integrated into this versatile laptop PC is good, 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 remote, an audio port, a useful HDMI video output in order to easily connect this Ultrabook to a TV or a monitor for example as well as 2 USB (compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0), the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers taking place up to ‘to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device.
As a fingerprint reader is integrated, we can authenticate by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology.
In addition, the keys of the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is very practical to distinguish them in the event of limited ambient light.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen displays colors more faithful than the average as well as important viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. It is also very well suited to High Definition content such as videos due to its Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format.
The screen stands out for its touch technology with an antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass protective layer. As a result, it is shiny and therefore gives punch to the colors but is sensitive to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Thanks to the tactile aspect of the screen, by applying at least one finger on it by pressures / gestures, one can interact with the system and the software.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Swift 5 SF514-55TA-5521
The Acer Swift 5 SF514-55TA-5521 may be of interest to those looking for a very light and compact laptop PC for everyday versatile use on the go.
It benefits from a large capacity SSD storage of 1TB that rivals worry-free what hard drives offer.
But compared to the latter, remember that an SSD is silent, more energy efficient, more resistant to shocks and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, we take advantage of much faster software launches as well as start / stop and processing, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games for example.
The SSD goes well with the heart of this thin and light laptop which delivers good overall performance. Because it embeds a good amount of low-consumption 16 GB RAM as well as the processor, a Quad Core i5-1135G7 Tiger Lake.
This houses the Intel Iris Xe graphics part . Its performance is clearly superior to those of the classic Intel UHD 620.
Like the latter, the Iris Xe allows you to watch photos and videos but also to play titles not too greedy in graphic resources.
However, if the objective is to often perform processing that is demanding in terms of processor and / or graphics resources, it will be better to turn to a PC equipped with a non-low consumption processor and / or an appropriate dedicated graphics card. .
But this will necessarily have an impact on transportability and battery life as this Ultrabook can last about 9 hours on battery in light use. In addition, it is easy to transport thanks to its compactness, its finesse and its weight limited to 1 kg.
