Chassis, connectors, screen of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-511-51VQ

It has an original and elegant appearance with its thin and light design in dark blue aluminum.

This versatile laptop is equipped with good connectivity including 1 USB-C Thunderbolt 4, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or TV for example, an audio port or even 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.

Authentication by biometric recognition is possible using the integrated fingerprint reader and Windows Hello technology.

Of course, the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is handy for better distinguishing its keys when ambient light is limited.

The screen will appeal to those who want truer-than-average colors with significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles as it adopts sRGB and IPS specifications. The screen also lends itself very well to viewing videos and, more broadly, high-definition content due to its 16:9 aspect ratio and Full HD definition. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the display is also more readable in a bright environment (for example, outdoors) than on a bright panel.

Performance, autonomy of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-511-51VQ

The Acer Swift 3 SF314-511-51VQ is a thin and light compact HD notebook designed for versatile everyday mobile use.

Expect about 10 hours of battery operation in light use for this versatile ultrabook with a stylish and original blue design whose delicacy, compactness and lightness make it easy to transport.

To guarantee such autonomy, this aluminum laptop relies on low-power components, such as its SSD storage.
Because an SSD consumes less power than a hard drive. It is also quieter, more robust and much faster.

As a result, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, we get in particular much faster starts/stops, processing and application launches, or even a faster arrival at the cards of online games.

While there’s no dedicated graphics card on board, you can still view photos and videos, but also enjoy modest gaming.
And this thanks to the Iris Xe graphics module (tested by us) integrated directly into the processor.

This is a low power Intel Tiger Lake Quad Core i7-1165G7. It is combined with 16 GB of RAM to offer a good overall performance capable of satisfying various users.

And on the capacity side? The SSD offers 512 GB, in line with the standard for hard drives.
However, if you need more space, you can use an external storage drive. Preferring a USB 3.0 / USB-C / Thunderbolt device then represents an interesting option to benefit from fast transfers.
