Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift 5 SF514-55TA-70LT
Thin and light, it sports an original look with its very light green design of 1 Kg.
This versatile Ultrabook has good connectivity with its USB-C Thunderbolt 4, its wireless modules Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax(more powerful and recent than Wi-Fi ac)to communicate and connect remotely, its hdmi video output convenient to easily connect it to a TV or monitor 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 USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
As a fingerprint reader is integrated, one can authenticate by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology.
Of course we can backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard to better discern them in the dim light.
This laptop stands out for its screen equipped with multi-touch technology: you can interact with the system and software by pressing/gestures of at least one finger applied to the slab. Acer offers as a bonus to the screen an antimicrobial Layer of Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
But it implies a brilliant treatment subject to reflections in a bright environment (eg exterior), which will be deplored by the most nomadic, but which implies in return revived colors. Be careful though: this PC cannot be converted into a Tablet!
In any case, thanks to its 100% sRGB and IPS characteristics, the screen displays more faithful colors than average with significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. It is also very well suited to High Definition content such as videos because of its Full HD definition and its 16/9th format.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Swift 5 SF514-55TA-70LT
The Acer Swift 5 SF514-55TA-70LT is aimed at those looking for a very light compact laptop with an original yet relatively discreet design that runs on the latest Windows 11 operating system, and this in view of a wise versatile mobile current.
Nomads will indeed be seduced by the autonomy of about 10 hours on battery in light use offered by this Ultrabook which is easier to carry thanks to its great lightness, compactness and finesse.
To ensure such autonomy to be used for many hours away from a power outlet, this versatile laptop incorporates energy-efficient components.
This is the case of the 16 GB of RAM, low consumption like the processor, a Quad Core i7-1165G7 Intel Tiger Lake. It also offers the advantage of integrating the Intel Iris Xe graphics solution (tested by us) whose performance is significantly higher than that of the classic Intel UHD 620.
Concretely, this green Ultrabook delivers good overall performance that can suit many users. It allows you to watch photos and videos but also to play titles not too demanding in graphic resources.
In addition, its core may be sufficient to perform from time to time modest processing in CPU resources exploiting RAM and multi-core. To often perform heavy work on the other hand, we benefit from turning instead to a PC based on a non-low-power processor and / or an adequate dedicated graphics card if we intend to play demanding titles. But this will have an impact, especially on weight and autonomy.
The storage is also low consumption because entrusted to an SSD. However, an SSD consumes less power than a hard drive while being silent, more shock-resistant and much faster.
In addition here we are dealing with an SSD whose large capacity of 1 TB rivals what hard drives offer the vast majority of the time, which is appreciable to install and house multiple software and files on this PC.
