Acer Swift 5 (2022) review roundup

  • LaptopMag – “The last-gen Swift 5, packed with an 11th Gen Intel CPU, blew us out of the water with its 13-hour battery life, stellar performance, attractive design, and palatable price tag. Now, the current-gen Swift 5 is $200 more, but the minor price hike is worth it. It’s got a faster SSD, zippier performance, impressive video transcoding, and breakneck file-transfer speeds — and it still manages to be lightweight and pleasing to the eye with an attractive dark-green-and-gold color scheme. The only grievances I have with the Swift 5 are its weak speakers and annoying bloatware apps.”
  • Techradar – “The Acer Swift 5 (2022) is a solid laptop well-suited to tackling a wide variety of everyday computing needs. It’s an ideal laptop for school or work due to its efficiency, quick start-up time, and excellent performance that juggles many processor-heavy tasks without slowing down.”
  • XDA Developers – “All in all, the 2022 Acer Swift 5 is looking to be a great laptop, even though it has some fierce competition at this price point. It’s a beautiful device, which gets a lot of points in my book. Plus, it has a great-looking screen, and typing on it is also fairly comfortable. While I can’t discuss performance, you can look at other devices powered by the new Intel processors to know what to expect, it shouldn’t really deviate too far from that.”
