Acer Swift 1 SF113-31 notebook test: great value for money

In the development of the Swift 1 SF113, Acer recalled the most important distinguishing feature of laptops, so during tests, mobility is first and foremost convincing in this device. The performance of Swift remains somewhat limited and is oriented mostly to work with office applications. Equipment and quality of performance are also worthy of attention. As a result, the price-quality ratio is very good for this model.

Value for money: 93

Mobility (25%): 86.3

Equipment (25%): 60.7

Productivity (15%): 56.9

Ergonomics (15%): 72.5

Display (20%): 87.1

The heart of the Acer Swift 1 SF113-31-P2CP notebook is the Pentium N4200 (1.1 GHz) processor, and 4 GB of RAM. Your data can be stored on a 256 GB SSD drive, and the following interfaces are available as options for connecting peripherals: 3x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0, HDMI-out and SDXC card reader.

To connect to wireless networks, you can use the 802.11ac WLAN adapter. If the WLAN is not available, you can use the Bluetooth adapter. The 13.3-inch display (1920×1080 pixels) has a contrast ratio of 196:1 and a maximum brightness of 245 cd/m2. In terms of contrast, we can say that the Swift 1 display plays in the same league as the leader’s rating screen, the HP Specter x360.

Very important for working in a mobile state has a display surface, which in this model of the laptop is matte. The pixel density is 166 dpi here, and the uniformity of the illumination distribution is at the level of 91.8 percent.

In general, this portable computer weighs 1.4 kg and draws the necessary energy from a 41 Wh battery. The duration of battery life in the mode of using office programs was 11 hours 22 minutes, which should be quite free for a long working day or school day.

Benchmark PCMark 7 gave the result equal to 4136 points. The graphics performance of the Acer Swift 1 SF113-31-P2CP remains low, which is not so important for it.

Alternative: successful in all respects – Acer Aspire V3-372-57CW (NX.G7BEV.010)

Acer Aspire V3-372-57CW on the test results demonstrated convincing estimates in the test category “Productivity”. Small disadvantages are in this device in the field of mobility, as well as display and equipment. Ergonomics suffers a bit because of the somewhat high noise level of the fan. Nevertheless, this device is generally very successful and has an excellent ratio of price and quality.
