If you were looking for a thin and light laptop with the latest AMD APUs then Acer Swift 3 will serve your purpose. It features a 14-inch IPS LED-backlit TFT LCD Full HD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution with 82.73% screen to body ratio. The laptop has slim bezels and it weighs just 1.2 kg along with just 15.9 mm thickness.
It features the 8 core and 8 threaded AMD Ryzen 7 4700U APU with 2.0 GHz base clock speed and up to 4.1 GHz boost clock speeds. The best APU for professional work and business purposes, with 8 Zen 2 you can get flagship-grade performance even Intel cannot provide you.
Some images show how it competes against Intel’s flagship Core i7-1065G7 CPU, which again is found in laptops over $1000 price point, so at this budget price this is the best offering you could ask for.
With the integrated Vega 7 iGPU clocked at 1600 MHz, you can handle most of the graphical with ease, better than an MX 250 dedicated GPU, also can handle casual 1080p gaming at low to medium settings. The laptop also features a faster 8 GB LDRR4 RAM which is great for a Ryzen system with integrated Vega graphics.
Also, it comes with fast 512 GB PCIe Gen3 NVMe SSD for faster boot speeds and overall performance. For connectivity, it’s great to see Acer including Wi-Fi 6 AX200 support and Bluetooth 5.0 along with an HD webcam that features Super high dynamic range imaging (SHDR).
For security, there’s a Fingerprint Reader as well and features a full-size FineTip backlit keyboard. It also comes with stereo speakers with Acer’s proprietary software. For ports, we have an HDMI port, 1x USB Type-C port with DC-in, 1x USB 3.2 Gen 1 port with power-off charging, 1x USB 2.0 port.
On the battery front, the Swift 3 features a 48 Wh 3-cell Li-ion battery which according to Acer shall last up to 11.5 hours, which might surprise you but yes, these AMD Zen 2 based APUs are very efficient and the 7nm goodness is reflected on both its performance and power consumption.
Overall, at $649.99 the value of this laptop is immense and I suggest to go for it if you were looking for a great budget laptop and if performance is what you want then this is it. Obviously, being a budget laptop it displays is not as great but with long battery life it makes up for its flaws.
