  • Swift 3
    Reviewed by TysonvSegall - February 10, 2021

    Had this for 3 weeks and it is a solid piece of machinery. Its thin, light, and looks good. Screen is bright with good viewing angles. Keyboard is responsive and backlit. Speed is excellent I use this for work and light video editing. The 8GB RAM is a bit low but I can expand it myself later if needed so not worried about that. Im getting 12 hours of battery usage despite heavy use. What makes this such a good deal is the fact it is EVO certified by Intel. This is the latest "ultrabook" at a very good price. Overall really pleased with my purchase.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Tec Support
    Reviewed by a.swift123 - September 11, 2021

    I actually don't mind the computer itself. I'm not overly tech savvy but this computer seems to fit all my needs and accomplish what I require it for. However, after owning this computer for a little over a year I had a question for Tec Support to help me diagnose a simple a simple issue. The gentleman on the phone, charged me $140 and told me my computers driver was damaged and needed to be replaced and would not transfer me to Tec Support without spending the $140 first as my warranty had expired. Once I was able to talk to Tec Support my computers driver was not the problem at all and I essentially spent $140 for a phone conversation.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Amazing Laptop for the Price
    Reviewed by Ottomatic1982 - January 6, 2021

    I did a lot of research before electing to buy the Acer Swift 3. I am one of those people who over research any product I buy. I have a Consumer Report subscription and read countless online reviews. On all of the end of the year lists, the Acer Swift 3 consistently graded out as the best budget laptop. This laptop runs very fast. There is zero lag when running any application. I specifically waited for the new Intel 11th Gen i5 to be released onto this device. The 8GB of RAM is more than enough for what I use a computer for. You have to know what you are buying your laptop for. I am mostly just going to be using Google Drive and Classroom, searching the web, and conducting lessons in Google Meet. I do not play video games, edit videos or images, or create complex coding projects. The only downside of this device is that the screen is not the brightest. I have to have the brightness turned all the way up to achieve what I would consider a normal screen brightness. However, if this was a major concern for me, I would not have purchased this device as most of the reviews I read commented on the brightness of the screen or lack thereof. Most budget laptops have screen issues, that is when they cost less than $1000. I went to BestBuy and spend some time on the laptop before purchasing it. I would recommend you always do the same before ever purchasing a laptop. I personally found the screen more than adequate, had no issues with the speakers as I mostly wear headphones, loved the keyboard layout, and was floored by how fast it ran. Processor spread and ergonomics (typing comfort and responsiveness) are the two features I care about most. I would highly recommend this laptop.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
