Mikey TRG (the review guy) looks at the 14” Acer Swift 3 laptop. This laptop currently (2016) retails for around $750-$850 CAD. One of the lightest and thinnest in its class, for sub $800 it’s definitely great value for the specs.
The Acer Swift 3 model has an Intel Core i5 dual core processor, 256GB SSD, an HD1080 non-touch display, 8 GB of RAM, and comes preinstalled with Windows 10.
One of the longest battery life of ~10 hours and has a backlit keyboard. The laptop has 1 HDMI, 1 USB 3.0 and 1 USB 2.0 port, dual band WiFi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0. It’s one of the thinnest in its class at 0.71” thick and it weighs only 3.31 lbs.
The fan is a little on the noisy side and you will need to uninstall a lot of bloatware to witness the true potential of the computer, but based on price and what you receive, I give it a 4 out of 5 stars.
