Acer Swift 3 (2022) Review: A Solid Mainstream Laptop

The Acer Swift 3 is one of the mainstays in the company’s laptop lineup, and the 2022 model brings some very welcome improvements that make this a great laptop for most people.

It’s got plenty of performance with Intel’s P series, up to a Quad HD display, and – potentially my favorite aspect –  a very good webcam that makes it ideal for remote learning or work.

It’s not without its flaws, with battery life being one of the downsides of having such a powerful CPU and a sharp display

The Acer Swift 3 is competitively priced, and it does come in a sleek package that makes it a laptop you can take anywhere and not get any weird looks.

 The Acer Swift 3 launched in various markets, including the United States and Europe, in June, starting at $849.99

 The Acer Swift 3 is available in three colors, but silver is the most common

 It weighs roughly 2.75lbs, which is fairly light for an aluminum laptop

The display now comes in up to Quad HD resolution, so it’s much sharper

The webcam has been upgraded to 1080p and it looks great

The Acer Swift 3 comes with a 14-inch display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is pretty standard for the series.

 It’s a very fast laptop thanks to Intel P-series processors

Battery life suffers from that performance increase and the Quad HD display
