Acer Swift 5 (late 2020) SF514-55TA-74EC
• Very light (2.3 pounds) for a 14-inch touchscreen
• Excellent gaming performance and battery life for its
• HDMI, Thunderbolt 4, and two USB-A ports on
• Weak speakers with practically nonexistent bass. • Middling webcam with no privacy shutter. • Display could be brighter given the price.

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