Processor: Intel Core i5-1035G4, Quad-core, with a base speed of 1.1 GHz

Memory: 8 GB LPDDR4 RAM

Storage: 512 GB SSD

Screen: 13.5 inches, with 3:2 aspect ratio that gives 18% more vertical reading space

Graphics: Intel Iris Pro G4 (optional Nvidia MX350)


– The 10th generation Intel Core processor and chipset deliver approximately 3x accelerated performance over previous generations.

– Slim, with less than 16 mm thickness and ultra-light at only 1.2 kg, makes the Swift S3 a highly portable device for professionals and students on the move.

– The two narrow bezels provide an impressive screen-to-body ratio of the 2256×1504 IPS VertiView Display, one of the best ratios in the screen-size class of 13.5 inches.

– The 56 Wh lithium-ion battery is larger than those similar-sized ultraportables. It is capable of lasting up to 16 hours in power-saving mode.


– At a lowly 1.1 GHz, the processor speed is not impressive by industry standards. The response time is relatively slow while multitasking.

– Although it comes with an optional, latest NVIDIA GPU, the Swift S3 is not a gaming laptop. The unusual 3:2 screen resolution struggles in running old games, while video-intensive modern games do not perform satisfactorily for want of a powerful graphics unit.

– The display is glossy, even though it’s not a touchscreen, and frequent panel flickering is uneasy on the eyes.


The overall value of the Acer Swift 3 SF313-52 NX.HQWEK.002, supported by its fair pricing, trumps its few quirks. It is a useful machine for everyday multitasking and runs quietly and coolly.
