Acer Swift 3 SF 314 – 57 – 58 VL in the test: case and display

Acer Swift – the somewhat nobler mainstream series from the manufacturer – leaves a high-quality impression in terms of feel and appearance. The casing of the Acer Swift 3 is made of a magnesium-aluminum alloy, the notebook falls with 1, 13 Kilograms very light and is still sufficiently stable.

With this weight one expects a 13 3-inch display, but it is actually a 14 – inch display. This solves in Full HD (1. 920 times 1. 080 Pixels) and is with 252 cd / m² is still sufficient, although not excessively bright. A matt display surface helps to reduce annoying reflections. A viewing angle stable IPS panel is installed, which means that you don't always have to be perfectly positioned in the middle of the device to get a good picture. Unfortunately, the color rendering is not very vivid: A coverage of the sRGB color space of only 67 percent means pale colors.

Despite the low weight and the small housing dimensions, no mini battery is installed. This offers 48 – watt-hours and the device can use over 9 hours for video playback and 5 hours for productive work Supply energy.

Acer Swift 3 SF 314 – 57 – 58 VL: Blocking instead of spilling at the store

While other notebooks with 128 or 256 Gigabyte mass storage devices, the Acer Swift 3 SF we tested 314 – 57 – 58 VL with handsome 1. 024 Gigabyte populated. The sheer size has another advantage: the SSD is one of the fastest in our leaderboard. There are also 8 gigabytes of RAM and a cutting-edge processor: The Intel Core i5 – 1035 G1 belongs to the tenth generation and is codenamed Ice Lake. The advantages compared to older processor generations are primarily in the graphics performance, the ax-WLAN standard and the simple support of USB-C with Thunderbolt.

In addition to USB-C port, the device also offers two classic Type A sockets, one in the old 2.0 version and one with the faster 3.0 standard. Positive: Although Thunderbolt can already output a video signal via an adapter (not included), the device still offers a full HDMI port for the TV or monitor connection. Other plus points are the fingerprint reader and the two-stage, white keyboard lighting. What the device lacks is an SD card reader and RJ – 45 (wired network connection). The bottom line is the offered performance for the money but great.
