The Acer Swift 3 (SF314-512) is available at a price of $779.99.

Acer Swift 3 (SF314-512): Full Specs


The Swift 3 comes with an aluminum chassis, similar to its predecessor. It also keeps the weight and thickness to a minimum, stopping the scales at 1.25 kg and having a profile of 16 mm. There are different color options to choose from, with either Grey, Blue, or Gold. The colors are a bit washed, which makes them more suitable for different occasions, even to take to the office.


There are two IPS displays to pick from, with either an FHD or a QHD panel. In any case, you’re getting 100% sRGB coverage.

Specifications and features

The laptop comes with two CPU choices, both from the Alder Lake P-series. The base model offers the Core i5-1240P, with 12 cores and 16 threads. There’s also the Core i7-1260P, with the same core and thread count, but an increase in cache size and a slight bump up in clock speeds.

For graphics, there is only what’s inside your CPU. Intel iGPUs have been especially good in recent years, delivering good productivity performance so you can do some Creator work on the go. These chips will need some good cooling, especially in such a compact laptop. This is why there are two fans with 118 blades total, which is quite an impressive feat.

The I/O has decent coverage, offering two Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1) ports, two Thunderbolt 4 ports, an HDMI connector, and an audio jack.
