About this deal

They’re loud enough, with reasonable stereo separation, but they’re also thin and reedy, and they badly lack low-end grunt. I still don’t care for the way the Page Up and Page Down keys have been squeezed right up to the left and right arrow keys, though. Through the use of narrow bezel, offering up an 84% screen-to-body ratio, users see more of the 14-inch Full HD IPS screen. Lighter laptops made from premium materials do better here, as do those that manage their heat efficiently and quietly.

Whether you're a student, a professional on the go, or a casual user, this laptop's versatility makes it an excellent choice for all.Whether you're juggling multiple applications or running resource-intensive software, the Swift 1 SF114-34 is up to the task. On paper at least, this laptop could be ideal for those who don’t want to spend a huge amount but need a compact and light device with no major drawbacks. It’s not a massive drawback relative to other affordable laptops, but once again, the general level of fit and finish elsewhere led me to hope for (if not quite expect) a little better. The display bezels are also relatively thin around the 14-inch display, resulting in an 84% screen-to-body ratio. If you have a non-BNPL balance, you will still need to make at least your minimum payment as shown on your statement.

You'll enjoy a familiar interface with enhanced features and robust security, ensuring your digital world remains protected. The Swift 1 features a full complement of connectivity options, including the latest dual-band Wi-Fi 6. For regular daytime indoors usage, I found that between half and two-thirds brightness level would suffice. That will get you a more modest Celeron N4500 CPU, half the RAM (4 GB), and a mere fraction of the storage (64GB), though with the same external offering.

Another notable design inclusion – for an ostensibly affordable laptop line, at least – is a fingerprint reader. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Colour reproduction is nothing special, however, with a mere 60% sRGB, 42% Adobe RGB, and 43% DCI P3. Plus, with a spacious 256GB SSD, you'll experience lightning-fast boot times and ample storage for your documents, media, and software.

If you’re not fussed by the Swift 1’s fingerprint sensor, have no need for a USB-C port, and don’t mind a more prosaic design, then you might want to consider the Acer Aspire 1 A114-33. Even this top model scored a modest 1737 in the Geekbench 5 multi-core test, which is lower than the Lenovo IdeaPad 3i (1940), but a little higher than the Asus E410 (1606). All our items range from brand new to refurbished - you can find more details in the condition tab below.The embedded fingerprint reader is a quick and secure way for Windows Hello to verify a user’s identity without a password. Credit subject to status, UK residents only, FIVE TECH LIMITED acts as a broker and offers finance from PayPal Credit. It’s picking fights all over the place, but it doesn’t quite have the engine necessary to cause any upsets.

It didn’t suffer for the switch, but I did find the Swift 1 to be annoyingly sluggish to wake from sleep. You also get a 1-year subscription to Microsoft 365, giving you access to the latest versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and a number of other Microsoft Office apps. We take great pride in the products we supply and are glad to provide detailed information on each products condition. This will be included within your account minimum payment request every month and cannot be repaid using Take 3. BNPL is an interest bearing option that allows you to delay payments on your purchases for up to 12 months depending on how much you spend.The other advantage to Acer not cheaping out on the Swift 1’s display is a decent maximum brightness of 301 nits, which was recorded using an iDisplay Studio. The latest Intel Pentium Silver Processor keeps everything running at optimum speeds while the fan-less design keeps noises to a minimum for the perfect working environment. Interestingly, I didn’t feel this level of annoyance from the Acer Aspire 1, which packs the same processor. In our standard looping video test at 120 nits brightness, the laptop lasted 15 hours 12 minutes before it gave up the ghost.
