Could the Acer Swift 3 make you more productive than if you used a MacBook?

Smooth, Reliable, and Swift (pun intended) are the three words I would use to describe the Acer Swift 3. This laptop has a gorgeous display, is lightweight, and has all the ports on the side you would ever need. A laptop designed for productivity, the Swift 3 has all the specs for your everyday needs.

The Specs

The Acer Swift 3 has a brilliant Full HD or QHD display with touch and non-touch screen models. With a screen size ranging from 13.3 inch to 16 inch, and Acer’s color intelligence, it is perfect for any 4k streaming. This beast of a laptop has a 12 generation i7 processor, runs Windows 11, d even has a Full HD 1080p webcam built in. On the go and need a charge? The Swift 3 has a fast-charge battery that provides 4 hours of battery life in only 30 minutes of charge. With the Swift 3 you also get 1TB of storage. This is a TON of storage. Just for you to imagine, 1TB can store 250,000 photos or 6.5 million document pages. You will not run out of storage. With ports on the side you get two USB-C ports, an HDMI 2.1 port, two USB ports, and a headphone jack.


When you are looking at getting a laptop, the first question usually is “How does it stack up against competitors?” The biggest comparison is usually the price. The Swift 3 version I used with a QHD 14’’ screen on Amazon will run you about $1,129.99 (link at the bottom of review). This is about $270 cheaper than the competitor Apple MacBook Pro 2022 which runs $1,499.99. Now, they are different laptops. Apple has it’s own chip while Acer uses Intel. The Acer has a QHD screen while the MacBook Pro uses a Retina display. Along with the ports mentioned above, the Swift 3 is going to get you more port options than the MacBook Pro. While comparing these two top laptops of the year, recognizing what you will be using the laptop for is huge in deciding which device you need.


When making your decision with purchasing a laptop, understand your need. When I was in school, all I needed a laptop with access to Word and the internet. I didn’t need a whole lot added to my laptop. This definitely was a factor in what laptop I bought and the price of it. If I was using a laptop for specific editing music & photo applications would that have changed my decision? Probably. However, deciding on the applications you need to utilize during your everyday life will help you determine a solution. If you need a stable laptop that will help you effectively do office work or schoolwork, then the Acer Swift 3 will be perfect for you. The applications I needed worked flawlessly with the Swift 3 and to save $270 and get more storage than a MacBook? Count me in.
