The Acer Swift 1 SF114-34 is a slim and light 14-inch notebook. Even though it is a low-end device, it uses premium materials: The chassis and the back of the display lid are made of metal. The laptop comes in the following colour schemes: Silver (our review model), Gold and Pink. At the time of our review, the laptop sells for 279 Euros (~$315).
The Swift 1 features the Pentium Silver N6000, 4 GB of RAM (soldered-on, no slots), and a 128 GB eMMC module. The Acer laptop can run office and web-based applications. The system can be easily overwhelmed. The laptop can only handle a few open tabs or background apps simultaneously. The amount of RAM is the main bottleneck here. This is why we recommend getting a Swift 1 model with 8 GB of RAM.
Thanks to a passively cooled SoC, the device operates absolutely silently. This is why it can be used in very quiet environments. The Swift 1 never gets too hot. The 50.3-Wh battery allows the devices to achieve battery runtimes of 11 to 16 hours, meaning that users will not have to carry around Acer’s proprietary charger. However, it is worth mentioning that the Swift 1 cannot be charged via the USB-C port.
Our review device does not ship with Windows. Those who already have a Windows licence can easily install Windows 10. Linux can be used as an alternative. We were able to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (64 Bit) without any issues. Almost all of the Acer Swift 1’s hardware was instantly recognised and functioned as expected.
