5 reasons to BUY the Acer Swift 3 (SF314-57)
1. Intel Ice lake
The 10nm Intel CPUs are a good choice for light and slim machines – less heat dissipation, lower power consumption, and powerful integrated graphics like Iris Plus G4 / G7. A great combination for compact and strong devices.
2. The build
The build of this notebook is awesome. It is made of a combination of magnesium, aluminum, and lithium. The profile is just 15.95 mm and the weight is very low – 1.19 kg. So, this notebook is thin, light, and has a great combination of materials in its body.
3. Battery life
For a 50Wh unit, battery life is very good. In our test lab, we measured over 10 hours of Web browsing and 9 hours of video playback.
4. The silence
This little buddy has some strong parts inside but at the same time, it is cool and quiet under load. The laptop is almost inaudible under heavy stress and it reaches 35.4°C only.

1. Soldered memory
Unfortunately, the memory is soldered and that means no upgrades regarding the RAM size. Maybe that’s the “price” that we all have to pay for the very slim and light devices.
