Acer Swift 5 SF514 (i5-8250U, UHD 620) Laptop Review

 

Lightweight performance mimosa. At just 930 grams (2.05 lbs) the touchscreen-equipped laptop seems to be the perfect business companion. We take a closer look at much more than just Swift's processor and RAM. What are the notebook's inherent...

decent yet slightly too dark touchscreen ; just 930 grams ; 180-degree hinge ; decent color-space coverage ; low power consumption

extreme CPU throttling, slower than its own predecessor ; creaks, noticeable gaps on the lid ; limited port selection, poor placement ; keyboard layout far from ideal ; display too dark and too reflective ; small battery, poor battery life

Evaluating and ranking the Acer Swift 5 has been a real challenge, to say the least. Its very low weight of less than 1 kg (~2.2 lb) is certainly a big plus. However, due to the dark and highly reflective display portability suffered considerably. The...

Acer Swift 5 - Veel lichter dan de concurrentie

 

Met een gewicht van 935 gram is de Acer Swift 5 bijna 400 gram lichter dan veel directe tegenhangers. De magnesiumbehuizing is stevig, maar wat minder goed in staat om hitte af te voeren dan alternatieven van aluminium. Daardoor presteert de...

Zeer lichte magnesiumbehuizing ; Touchscreen met hoog contrast ; Ruimte voor extra ssd

Toetsenbord met weinig travel ; Matige schermhelderheid

Kort testrapport Acer Swift 5 SF514 (i5-8250U, UHD 620) Laptop

 

Lichtgewicht krachtpatser. Met een gewicht van slechts 930 gram lijkt de met touchscreen uitgeruste laptop de perfecte zakelijke partner. We werpen een nadere blik op meer dan alleen de processor en RAM. Wat zijn de compromissen en wat heeft Acer...

Degelijk doch donker touchscreen ; Slechts 930 gram ; 180-graden scharnier ; Groot kleurenspectrum ; Laag energieverbruik

Extreme CPU beknelling, langzamer dan de voorganger ; Kraakt; zichtbare gleuven in het beeldschermdeksel ; Beperkt aanbod van poorten, slechte positionering ; Toetsenbord lay-out verre van ideaal ; Beeldscherm te donker en weerspiegelend ; Kleine...

Voor het volledige, Engelse testrapport, klik hier. De Acer Swift 5 is een groot compromis uit de naam van gewichtsbesparing. Het apparaat is gericht op een specifieke doelgroep die een uiterst lichte laptop verkiezen boven prestaties.

Recensione del Portatile Acer Swift 5 SF514 (i5-8250U, UHD 620)

 

Mimosa prestante e leggera. A soli 930 grammi (2,05 libbre) il computer portatile con touchscreen sembra essere il compagno perfetto per gli affari. Diamo un'occhiata più da vicino a molto di più che al processore e alla RAM dello Swift. Quali sono i...

touchscreen discreto ma leggermente troppo scuro ; Solo 930 grammi ; Cerniera a 180 gradi ; discreta copertura dello spazio di colore ; basso consumo energetico

estrema strozzatura della CPU, più lenta rispetto al suo predecessore ; scricchiolii, fessure evidenti sul case ; selezione delle porte limitata, posizionamento errato ; layout della tastiera lontano dall'ideale ; display troppo scuro e troppo...

Courte critique du PC portable Acer Swift 5 SF514 (i5-8250U, UHD 620)

 

Performances légères. A juste 930 g, le portable à écran tactile semble être le compagnon de voyage parfait. Nous testons entre autres le processeur et la RAM du Swift. Quels sont les compromis, inhérents aux ultrabooks, qu'Acer a dû faire ?

écran tactile correct mais trop sombre ; juste 930 g ; charnière à 180° ; couverture de l'espace colorimétrique honnête ; faible consommation

très gros throttling du processeur, plus lent que son prédécesseur ; craquements, espaces visibles sur la partie écran ; nombre de ports limité, mal placés ; organisation du clavier inhabituelle ; écran trop sombre et sujet aux reflets ; petite...

Évaluer et classer l’Acer Swift a été un vrai défi. Son très faible poids de moins de 1 kg est un très gros avantage, mais à cause d’un écran peu lumineux et très sensible aux reflets, la portabilité n’est pas son fort. L’Acer Swift 5 est un bon...

Review del portátil Acer Swift 5 SF514 (i5-8250U, UHD 620)

 

Mimosa de rendimiento liviana. Con sólo 930 gramos (2,05 libras), el portátil equipado con pantalla táctil parece ser el compañero de negocios perfecto. Echamos un vistazo más de cerca a mucho más que el procesador y la memoria RAM de Swift. ¿Cuáles...

decente pero ligeramente demasiado oscura pantalla táctil ; sólo 930 gramos ; Bisagra de 180 grados ; cobertura decente del espacio de color ; bajo consumo de energía

limitación extrema de la CPU, más lenta que su propio predecesor ; crujidos, huecos notables en la tapa ; selección limitada de puertos, mala colocación ; la disposición del teclado dista mucho de ser ideal ; la pantalla es demasiado oscura y...

Evaluar y clasificar el Acer Swift 5 ha sido un verdadero reto, por decir lo menos. Su muy bajo peso de menos de 1 kg (~2.2 lb) es ciertamente una gran ventaja. Sin embargo, debido a la oscuridad y a la alta reflexión, la portabilidad de la pantalla...

Delicado desempenho leve. Com apenas 930 gramas (2,05 lbs), o portátil equipado com tela táctil parece ser o companheiro de negócios perfeito. Examinamos mais de perto o processador e a RAM do Swift. Quais são os compromissos inerentes do portátil e o...

Tela táctil decente ainda ligeiramente escura ; Apenas 930 gramas ; Dobradiça de 180 graus ; Cobertura de espaço de cores decente ; Baixo consumo de energia

Afogamento extremo da CPU, mais lento que o seu próprio predecessor ; Rangidos, brechas notáveis na tampa ; Seleção de portas limitada, localização pobre ; Layout do teclado longe do ideal ; Tela muito escura e muito refletiva ; Bateria menor; duração...

Ноутбук Acer Swift 5 SF514 (i5-8250U, UHD 620). Обзор от Notebookcheck

 

Боец в легком весе. Ноутбук весом в 930 грамм оборудованный сенсорным экраном со стороны кажется просто идеальным бизнес-помощником. Мы пристально изучим не только технические параметры нового Swift, вроде процессора и оперативной памяти, но и...

хороший, хоть и темный, дисплей ; вес всего 930 грамм ; шарниры позволяют открыть крышку на 180 градусов ; приличный цветовой охват ; низкое энергопотребление

сильный троттлинг, производительность меньше, чему предшественника ; треск корпуса, заметные щели на стыках (крышка+рамка) ; ограниченный набор портов, неудобное расположение ; раскладка клавиатуры далека от оптимальной ; слабая подсветка и глянцевое...

Тестирование и оценивание Acer Swift 5 оказалось настоящим испытанием, если не сказать больше. Его однозначным плюсом является крайне низкий вес: менее 1 килограмма. Однако, из-за высокой отражающей способности глянцевого дисплея со слабой подсветкой,...

Test Acer Swift 5 SF514 (i5-8250U, UHD 620) Laptop

 

Federleichte Leistungsmimose. Der neue, nur 930 Gramm leichte Laptop mit Touchscreen scheint auf den ersten Blick der ideale Business-Begleiter zu sein. Wir blicken bei unserem Acer Swift 5 Review hinter die Kulissen und messen das Fliegengewicht nicht...

Guter Touchscreen abseits des Helligkeitswertes ; Nur 930 Gramm leicht ; 180-Grad-Scharnier ; Gute Farbraumabdeckung ; Geringer Energieverbrauch

Extreme CPU-Drosselung, weniger performant als der Vorgänger ; Knackt, Spaltmaße im Displaydeckel ; Wenige Anschlüsse, suboptimal platziert ; Einige Tastatur-Layout-Schwächen ; Bildschirm wenig hell, zudem spiegelnd ; Kleiner Akku, ausbaufähige Laufzeiten

Das Acer Swift 5 ist ein schwieriger Bewertungsfall. Das ultra-leichte Gewicht von unter einem Kilogramm ist rekordverdächtig und angenehm. Die dadurch erhoffte Mobilität gelingt allerdings auch nur bedingt, denn leider ist der spiegelnde Bildschirm...
