One of the things that Acer always seems to nail down with its products is value, and it’s done that once again with the Swift X. It comes with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800U processor, RTX 3050 Ti graphics, 16GB RAM, and a 512GB SSD. On top of that, it lives up to the Swift name by coming in a package that weighs barely over three pounds.

Design and Display
The Acer Swift X (SFX14-41G) comes in three colors: Steam Blue, Prodigy Pink, and Safari Gold. The one that is widely available in Nepal is the Gold Safari. They all look pretty great, and they all have silver-colored sides and keyboards, making for a two-tone design. I like the Steam Blue look because the darker color has more of a contrast with the silver. Acer says that the chassis is made out of aluminum, which is really impressive given that this thing barely weighs over three pounds
The screen on the Acer Swift X is 14 inches with a 1,920×1,080 resolution, so there’s nothing crazy going on here. It’s still 16:9, so it’s not using any of the newer aspect ratios we’re seeing a lot, like 16:10 or 3:2. It’s 300-nit, anti-glare, and FHD. It does have an excellent viewing angle, as is noted in the spec sheet. That means you can look at it from any angle and there’s no visible color distortion. There are also narrow bezels on all sides. Personally, I really like the display on this machine.
The keys on the Acer Swift X feel pretty good, but I don’t think there’s anything new here. It’s a comfortable and accurate keyboard to type on, and of course, it’s backlit. The keys don’t feel wobbly at all, which is always a good thing, and the key-press volume is average. Below the keyboard is a Microsoft Precision touchpad that’s made out of mylar. Personally, I’d prefer it if it was a little bigger, really making use of all available real estate, but the size is fine.
The Acer Swift X line is all about power, and packing dedicated graphics into a laptop that fits into the Swift brand. Naturally, that brand is all about being super-light. With an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and weighing in at barely over three pounds, Acer definitely succeeded here. And the AMD Ryzen 7 5800U is a good processor. In fact, it’s a really good processor, and we see a lot of AMD Ryzen processors in laptops that provide a lot of value for the money, like this one.
Battery life is pretty good
Battery life is pretty decent on the Acer Swift X. Most of my estimates came out between five hours and five and a half hours, which is solid. This is real-world usage, determined by doing actual work, seeing how much the battery drains, and estimating the total time from 100-0% based on that.
