Acer Swift 5 (late 2020) SF514-55TA-74EC

-

PROS

• Very light (2.3 pounds) for a 14-inch touchscree­n

laptop.

• Excellent gaming performanc­e and battery life for its

size.

• HDMI, Thunderbol­t 4, and two USB-A ports on

board.

CONS

• Weak speakers with practicall­y nonexisten­t bass. • Middling webcam with no privacy shutter. • Display could be brighter given the price.

BOTTOM LINE

The Acer Swift 5 is thin, light, and fast enough to play Fortnite, showing off Intel’s 11th-gen Tiger Lake and

Iris Xe graphics at their best. It gets stellar battery life too. The sound quality is the biggest disappoint­ment.
