In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.


Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

If we have to draw early conclusions from the integrated Iris Xe Graphics G7, which comfortably beats the 10W version of NVIDIA's GeForce MX350, the expectations are set really high. Is Acer's work with Intel going to change the low-end gaming industry? Is it going to provide enough headroom for professional workflow on thin and light machines? We're going to answer these questions and much more in this review, s[...]

Disassembly, maintenance and upgrade options

This is the first notebook to feature an Intel dedicated graphics card. And it happens to work pretty decently, as well. Check out all Acer Swift 3X (SF314-510G) prices and configurations in our Specs System or read more in our In-Depth review. 1. Remove the bottom plate To get inside of this laptop, you need to undo 12 Torx-head screws. After that, just pry the bottom panel with a plastic tool, starting from one of the front edges. 2. Battery, memory, and storage Upgradability here is a bit of a mixed bag. On one side, the memory is soldered to the motherboard, and you can [...]
