Acer Swift 7 Laptop Review. Ultra-thin And Light

, , Leave a comment

This laptop is quite impressive. Users are reporting that it is incredibly thin.

The 14-inch version has a touch screen and i7 processor, yet it manages to stretch the battery life up to 10 hours.

The build quality is very good and nothing rattling inside it. There is no fan as this laptop uses passive cooling.

Good points

It is really that thin. There is a compromise in the hardware power; i.e., it probably will struggle to run heavy video editing in 4k. But its width is just amazing.

9.95 mm thickness, 890g weight, screens to body ratio 92%.

It has a good screen. 14” FHD IPS display with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6 touch screen.

Good battery life. Acer now make very good batteries.

8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor.

Integrated fingerprint reader/power button.

This laptop model comes with two versions: 14-inch version with i7 and 13.3 version with i5. Both versions are very small in size and thin.

Very good sound quality.

Bad points

The keyboard has swapped Back Space and Delete keys. This is happening on other laptops. This is probably not a surprise to you.

The keyboard is not backlit.

Touchpad does not have a click feature or is hardly noticeable.

The screen opens just 180 degrees, but they could have made it like a transformer (2 in 1). Maybe this is a marketing move as there are already transformers from Acer.

The 13.3-inch version does not have a touch screen and has an i5 processor.

The memory (RAM) is not upgradeable.

Games that will run on this laptop with recommended settings

Red Dead Redemption 2
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Apex Legends
Detroit: Become Human
Borderlands 3
Halo: The Master Chief Collection
Urban Empire
Insurgency: Sandstorm
Pro Evolution Soccer 2017

Games that will run on minimal settings (I do not guarantee that it will run smooth)

League of Legends
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
Cyberpunk 2077
Fortnite: Battle Royale
The Sims 4
Left 4 Dead 2
Fallout: New Vegas
Euro Truck Simulator 2
