I love this laptop and the price is amazing for this. Its sleek and lightweight and the screen display is amazing. It also has fingerprint access to log into your computer and that shocked me LOL. I needed to buy one ASAP for a future job and everywhere near me is sold out of laptops because everyone such as kids and adults are working from home. So I was nervous to buy this online and it need the right one for me but its great !

I am loving this laptop
This has been a great laptop to my home. I don't use a computer often and when I do I expect it to run fast. Anyways this doesn't have a lot of internal storage which is fine cause I prefer to store all my stuff on external storage anyways. For me to get on the Internet and do the little I need to do while on it. It seems to work extremely well for that. I love the idea of the fingerprint technology to have secure access especially if you are sharing a room with someone so they can't access anything inside the computer. I love how slim it is. I can pack this around and not have to worry about putting it in a bag it's so small and light. Screen is large and has a great picture. Sound is nice and loud. I have no issues with the sound as I have heard others complain about. This laptop is the perfect addition to my home and I am extremely happy with it. Works well for me and my children. Great features.
Love this Laptop!!
I positively love this laptop. It is the thinnest laptop I have ever owned. It has all the things you expect from a laptop (all the technical stuff- the Intel inside, 64GB HDD, Windows 10, etc.) I love the HDMI port, the SD port (for my big camera memory card), and the three USB ports as well. Up to 17 hours of battery life is amazing! The setup was ludicrously easy- I simply signed into my Microsoft account and signed into my One Drive! So easy! Everything loaded right up- just the way I like it! I am not entirely sold on the S mode, but it certainly feels safe. The screen is a smidge smaller than my last laptop- but certainly large enough for all my tasks! I was already a Microsoft Suite subscriber- and much to my happy surprise, my account added 12 months paid (instead of just giving me a few free months until my annual subscription is due- laptop comes with a 12 month subscription to Office 365). I really just love this laptop! I can personalize it anyway I want! If I want to do the apps type of view, I can. If I prefer the old school start menu, I can do that too! Cortana will answer my spoken questions when I tell her to listen. The fingerprint reader is out-of-this-world! I cannot recommend this enough! For school or work or “projects” at home- this is an amazing laptop!
Great Acer laptop!
We have had this silver Acer laptop for a couple days...and we are very happy and impressed with it...The set up is so easy...with easy instructions...my husband set it up within a few minutes...The sleek design is nice and the laptop doesn't seem heavy at all...doesn't seem cheap either...The weight of it reminded me of the air MacBook...Battery life is is over 10 hours..keyboard is pretty good ...good spacing and feedback when pressing the keys...the fingerprint scanner is a bit dodgy at times, the fingerprint reading works 95% of the time but it's not really a huge problem..The processor is really fast even when I have multiple tabs and programs opened at the same time...I have no complaints on this laptop...I'm quite happy and impressed with it :)
Omg i was so excited when i received this laptop. The laptop itself is so slim and thats most definitely a plus. Usually my step son sets up all my electronics in my home but i found this extra easy to do myself. As soon as the computer powered on a assistant talk me through the whole set up. Even conneting it to the internet and resetting the time was easy. Im truly in love with my Acer laptop. Also its not bulky so it can be easily transported.
Great Affordable Laptop
I am excited to review Acer Swift 1 laptop because it's a great product. First of all, if you are looking for a good laptop that won't break the bank, this is the one you want. I've always spent around $350-$450 for a laptop or netbook and this one falls around that range. It is hands down the best laptop I've owned! I've had Acers before but this one is better than the others I have had. The first thing you notice when opening the packaging is that it's slim and light weight. I actually timed the set up and it took me 1 minute to get everything out of packageing and a total of 7 minutes to set it all up and connect to the internet. It was all very easy to set up with on screen instuctions. The graphics quality on the screen is great, it is very fast and you even get a whole year of MS Office 365 for free! I like that the battery life is much longer than my other lap tops. The fingerprint reader for extra security is pretty cool. I've never had one of those on a computer before so this device shows you how far laptops have come with technology. I think this laptop would be great for students or people on the go who like the light weight feel and slim design but still need a decent size screen as many laptops these days are lacking in screen size for one of this price point. I only wish the keyboard was back light but no biggie. Overall recommended!
Nice size but mobile powerful
The Acer Swift 1, 14 Full HD Notebook, Intel Pentium Silver N5000, 4GB, 64GB HDD, SF114-32-P2PK packs a big punch in a small vessel. This notebook seems to be geared toward users who primarily use online tools such as Google Docs or Office 365 primarily because it does not have a large hard drive built in. If this is the type of use that you want, then this notebook is perfect for you. It has a ton of nice features in a small size: the screen is a very sharp 1080HD, all metal case, HDMI port, 3 USB port, 16 hour battery life, and it weighs next to nothing. There is a M.2 slot available on the motherboard if you want to add a solid state drive of that type to the notebook. I love the fact that it is so light and just the right size to be able to type pretty easily but also store it in backpack or briefcase without taking up too much room. Besides the size of the hard drive the only other feature I don't like is that in the Windows S mode it will only let you install verified apps from the Microsoft Store. Overall this notebook is a great buy and I would highly recommend it.
good portability and processing power
This is a very nice laptop or ultrabook. I've been using computers and/or laptops for decades. I feel the Acer Swift 1 is an excellent value given the combination of portability and adequate processing power. A good choice for students or just about any other "average" computer user who is currently taking advantage of online cloud storage for the majority of their important files, photos, and documents. For those who rely primarily on a desktop computer and cloud storage, this ultrabook would be a good unit to take on the road occasionally, for light duty tasks.
The keyboard is large enough to easily work on for extended periods. Getting accustomed to using the keyboard on a new laptop is always a temporary challenge; you'll get used to it. At about 3 pounds it is lightweight an easily transported. The appearance is sleek and clean and overall construction appears to be very solid. Ample USB and other ports should satisfy nearly every user (see the detailed manufacturer specs). The Acer Swift 1 also has an SD Card Reader for storage expansion. Quickly boots or shuts down.
Note the included operating system is Windows S which theoretically only allows apps from the Microsoft Store to be installed. Though you may find work-arounds on the Internet for installing non-Microsoft apps. It occurs to me this unit may also be a good choice for those who lack advanced computer skills and simply want to surf the web and check email (such users probably won't be able to install malicious apps and get themselves in trouble, e.g. certain seniors or your kids). I recommend you buy a wireless mouse with a USB dongle (plug) and probably also a sleeve to help protect your investment. While I have a much larger, more powerful desktop replacement type laptop, the Swift 1 is a lot more comfortable to use when sitting on the sofa surfing the web in the evening. The box contains the power supply (6' cord), the laptop in a paper sleeve, and basic instructions.
I received this product as a member of the walmart spark reviewer program. Upon receiving this laptop in its package i could tel it would be extremely light weight. Once I opened the box and removed it my thoughts were fully confirmed. It is actually very conveniently constructed. The body looks like it is made from a nice aluminum material alloy. When closed it looks very sleek and the design is very nice. However, the black lip design to open the laptop is annoying especially for people with big hands. It is almost like opening a tightly sealed ziplock bag. regardless, it functions like a nice PC and does okay with regards to the speed according to the specifications. I did not expect much in performance from this PC and it does not disappoint or exceed its own standards. BE CAREFUL, i had to reset the entire installation because i turned of the touch pad (the touch sensitive click was annoying and uncontrollable with regards to mistakenly opening programs). Once i turned it off i could use the laptop again as i couldn't figure out how toter it mac kon (for you information it is Fn + F7; let me save you the hassel). I also requires a pin code to log on if you have a windows/xbox account. This is mandatory. The big plus is that it comes with OFFICE already installed. Huge perk as this is why i purchased it to begin with.. it doesn't have much storage space (55GB which his really only 47GB after packaged programs), but it does have 2 usb-3 and 1 usb-c port.
Skinny and small but performs like a giant
I've been hearing a lot about this company and couldn't wait to see what all the fuss was about.
The Acer Swift Laptop is thin and considerably lightweight at just under 3 lbs. Although to me it felt as if it were a bit heavier.
The cover is metal, not plastic. It's just under 1/2" thick, about 12-3/4"W x 8-7/8" D and you feel no flex whatsoever. The screen is impressive as it takes up about all of the size with just a tiny 1/4" frame. The IPS 1080p screen (In-Plane Switching) display with HD is impressive for graphics, watching movies, and just plain reading.
The other feature I love is the fingerprint identification. Once your fingertip touches the reader, boom, your in. I'm not extremely happy with the keyboard which is not backlit. If you have long fingernails it may be slightly difficult to use the keyboard.
There are plenty of ports on each side of the laptop; USB 2.0 port, and an SD (not microSD) card slot, HDMI port, two USB 3.0 ports, an audio jack, and a USB-C port. I found the sound to be great but the speakers are on the bottom. The Acer Swift 1 also comes with an adapter which plugs into the side.
Once I had uploaded the programs I needed, I was happy with the performance. I watched 2 movies, used social media, checked my emails and barely saw the life of the battery go down. I haven't tested if the battery lasts 17 hrs like they say but I have faith it does based on how long I used it. I also didn't feel any heat from the laptop when using it for 6 or more hours.
I'm very pleased with this laptop, size, performance, especially the screen size and the long life battery. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars from me is because of the keyboard. I think it's the perfect laptop for travel or school.
