Acer Swift 3 14" 2017 Overview

The 14" Swift 3 Laptop from Acer features a compact chassis that is powered by a 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5-8250U processor along with 8GB of LPPDR3 RAM and a 256GB SSD, providing desktop-like computing performance while traveling.

Should you need more storage space, you can connect an external storage solution to one of the notebook's multiple USB ports, one of which is a convenient USB Type-C port.

The Swift 3 notebook comes armed with an 14" IPS display that provides wide viewing angles and vivid colors with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, which is powered by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics card with 2GB of GDDR5 video memory. For expanding the onscreen workspace, an HDMI port lets the system access an external display.

Accessing the Internet can be accomplished wirelessly via Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), and compatible wireless peripherals can pair using Bluetooth 4.0 technology. There's also a Gigabit Ethernet port for reliable access to the Internet. Other integrated features include a pair of speakers, webcam, microphone, 3.5mm audio jack, and SD card reader for quickly transferring files from mobile devices. Additionally, a fingerprint reader is on board for quickly accessing the system without typing a password on the notebook's backlit keyboard.

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu

After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.

Cortana

Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.

Microsoft Edge

After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.

Windows Store

For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.

Windows Continuum

Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.

Xbox on Windows 10

Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
