Following review is on the Acer Swift 1 SF114-32-P2PK, 14 Full HD, Pentium Silver N5000, 4GB DDR4, 64GB. I'm constantly doing things online whether it's paying bills, research or shopping. As much as I love that I can handle everything on my phone I don't like draining the battery. The Acer Swift has proven to be the perfect solution.
* Definitely appreciate the size, slim design and most of all lightweight. I own a Toshiba and it's great, however, it is a bit heavier and causes strain on my shoulders when carrying around and with the Acer because it's designed to be lightweight and slim the weight is not an issue.
* Love having the fingerprint reader, very efficient and gives me an extra sense of security.
* Prior to working with this laptop, I didn't take notice to the lag on my previous laptop, however, there is a noticeable difference(Acer pulls up websites at much faster speed.)
* I'm highly satisfied with the resolution (1920 x 1080) my pictures and displays are nice, clean and crisp.
* Microsoft Office Products are a must I use them for several projects. The Acer Swift comes installed with the Microsoft 365 Office for a year, However, I was never able to get my account validated which is extremely frustrating.
* The Swift does not have a CD/DVD read/write drive but you can pick one up for around $30 and in all honesty, I have one on my Toshiba and only used it perhaps 4-5 times and not to mention most items are kept on flash drives.
* Once I find a product that meets my needs, I tend to stick with it. With that said, one thing that really irks me is the S Mode preventing me from downloading my apps such as Google Photos.
I have absolutely enjoyed working with the Acer Swift and highly recommend, it's great for handling all my daily task: paying bills, shopping and keeping up with my children's school progress.
Note: This would be perfect for students at various grade levels.
