Acer Swift 1 SF113-31-P5CK Stylish Ultralight
Acer Swift 1 SF113-31-P5CK is properly the best thin-and-light premium laptops now that comes with a Full HD display. Comes with a 13.3-inch LED-backlit display with IPS and Acer’s ComfyView technology, this machine brings a great viewing experience. Like the Acer Swift 3 SF314 that was released last year, this small and portable laptop features a 1,920-by-1,080 resolution. The device produces an average brightness at 247.2 cd/m² with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The Acer Swift 1 display delivers a relatively good color reproduction with excellent viewing angles for watching 1080p Full HD media.
Like its brothers, this portable laptop also comes with a stylish and build quality design. Measures 9.21 x 13.3 x 0.71 inches, the 3.53 pounds machine offers a ultralight and sleek look design. The “Sparkly Silver” metal exterior combined with shiny chamfered edges and two sturdy hinges make it looks robustness and feels reasonably stable for on the go. The 4-cell Lithium Ion Swift 1 3770 mAh battery claimed produces more than 10 hours of life. But some testing gives this high-capacity battery only six hours with 60% on the display’s brightness setting.
Acer Swift 1 SF113-31 Computing Performance
As a budget friendly ultra thin and light machine, Acer Swift 1 SF113-31-P5CK is only designed for office task, watch 1080p HD video and internet applications. The Intel Pentium N4200 Quad-Core Processor with Intel Burst Technology and clocked at up to 2.5GHz promises smooth, seamless and an enjoyable experience. Inside, the 4GB DDR3L SDRAM Onboard Memory and Microsoft Windows 10 Home edition is fast enough to handle any day to day multitasks activity in office, school or at home without sacrificing overall performance.
The 13.3-inch machine brings an Intel HD Graphics as the graphics accelerator. Yeah, like its competitor, Acer Swift 1 SF113-31-P5CK is not designed for graphics-intensive tasks. But technically few casual modern games and old basic 3D games can render smoothly with low resolutions settings. Inside, the newest Acer Swift 1 13.3 inch laptop only shipped with a 64 GB of an internal flash drive. It’s a small storage and not enough for multimedia purpose. But you can expand the storage capacity quickly via an SD card.
Above the 13.3 inch, Full HD IPS display is a High Definition web camera. The internal camera brings a 720p resolution and works well enough for video recording and Skype video conference. Thanks to the integrated microphone for audio. Two TrueHarmony stereo speakers placed on the underside of the body. It delivers clear sound and fairly enough volume for filling the room. But for better multimedia experience, we suggest connecting your music to external stereo headphones.
Comfortable Non-backlit Keyboard
Acer Swift 1 SF113-31-P5CK features an embedded fingerprint sensor for secure your system. The non-backlit keyboard has large enter keypad with some key action and a 10-numeric keypad on the top of chiclet keyboard.

Like standard entry level laptop on the Swift 1 SF113-31-P5CK laptop’s range, this machine is not promising ultimate power and performance. The graphics engine also not supported for most modern 3D games. It also lacks a backlit keyboard. But with the ultra slim body, stylish and attractive design, Acer Swift 1 SF113-31-P5CK is still great machine you can but right now for only $329. If you mainly use a laptop for heavy duty and more graphics intensive tasks, we recommend taking a look at Asus Q504UA-BHI7T21.
