Acer Swift 3 (2019)

Acer Swift 3 (2019) review

The Acer Swift 3 is a tweener laptop that’s not quite budget and not quite premium – and it feels and performs accordingly. It manages to hold its own, though, thanks to its discrete GPU that gives it some entry-level gaming and creative chops.
Acer TravelMate P6

Acer TravelMate P6 review: Economy class

The Acer TravelMate P6 is light and offers an entry-level discrete GPU if you need on, but otherwise it’s short on what many business users demand. It doesn’t feel robust, and it doesn’t last long enough on a single charge of its battery.

acer predator thronos air feature v2

Acer introduces a (slightly) more affordable version of its epic gaming throne

Acer unveiled its utterly bonkers Predator Thronos gaming chair at IFA 2018, though calling this beast a chair is underselling it. At this year's IFA, Acer announced an updated version of the chair called the Predator Thronos Air which is (slightly) more affordable. At $14,000, it's practically a bargain.

Acer Swift 7 (2019) review

Acer’s 2019 Swift 7 fixes a great deal of what was wrong with the 2018 version, while being almost as thin and both smaller and lighter. In particular, the touchpad was fixed and is now excellent. Limited power, though, remains a concern.

Acer Swift 3 13 (2019) review

Acer’s 13-inch version of the Swift 3 clamshell laptop doesn’t offer much to distinguish itself from a very crowded market. It’s not a faster, cheaper, better-built, or more attractive option than better laptops like the Asus ZenBook 13 and Dell XPS 13.
Acer Swift 3 (2019)

Acer Swift 3 (2019) vs. Asus ZenBook 14 UX433

You don't have to settle for a too-small 13.3-inch laptop nor one that's too large at 15.6 inches. Instead, you can choose the Goldilocks option: A 14-inch laptop that's neither too big nor too tiny. The ZenBook 14 and Acer Swift 3 present two different options with strengths and weaknesses.

Acer Chromebook 514 review

Acer’s Chromebook 514 is a workhorse laptop that doesn’t even try to show off with a glitzy design or 2-in-1 functionality. It’s very well-built, adequately equipped for productive performance, and lasts a long time on a charge – making it worth its $500 price.

Acer Predator XB3 review

The $1,300 Predator XB3 isn’t for the faint of heart. But if you have a system that can push over 100 frames per second at 4K screen resolution, this monster of a monitor might be the perfect match for your overpowered gaming rig. More than that, it’s an investment in the future of PC gaming power.

Acer Swift 5 vs. Dell XPS 15

Acer's Swift 5 aims at a singular accomplishment: to be the lightest 15-inch laptop on the market. And it succeeds, coming in at a featherweight 2.2 pounds. But it's facing stiff competition in the all-around excellent XPS 15. Which is better worth your money in a head-to-head no-holds-barred matchup?

Acer Swift 7 2019

Acer Swift 7 hands-on review

The Acer Swift 7 is among the world’s thinnest laptops, but it hasn’t received the fanfare that its super-slim profile seems to deserve. The price tag has proved a problem, and while new model shown at CES 2019 is better than ever before, expense remains an obstacle.

acer aspire 3 budget laptop bust feat

You can go too cheap on a laptop, and this is what happens when you do

It might seem all budget notebooks are the same, and you can pick any laptop off the shelf. That’s not true, however, as a quick comparison between the very bad Acer Aspire 3, and the very good Aspire E 15, demonstrates. You’ll want to do your research no matter how much you spend.
