Acer Swift 3 (AMD 4700U) – Why I do NOT recommend this budget laptop, and what I recommend instead

by birtanpublished on February 20, 2021

Tech family it's Josh as you can see I'm hunkered down because of the virus and I'm currently working on a couple of new videos for you all but I wanted to take a moment out to talk about the new Asus with three the one with the AMD rise in 4700 new processor since its launch I have been inundated with questions saying should you buy it should you buy it over the IdeaPad 515 inch that I recently reviewed and will I be getting one in for the channel to take a look at the answer is no I absolutely do not recommend this laptop and I won't be getting one into a review for the channel the reason is the display it

Just sucks in my recent video on the best budget laptop I took a lot about the importance of a good quality display because that's where manufacturers producing laptops in this price range really cutbacks and that's what's happened in the Swift 3 now the IdeaPad 5 15-inch on the other hand has quite a decent panel I mean it's not amazing it's not as good as the Dell XPS 9 300 or the MacBook Air but it's still you know it's very decent now to put it in perspective Dave 2d who analyzed the Swift threes panel

He got 260 Nets of brightness this laptop has 350 units of brightness that is much brighter and how that's going to play out is in a moderately lit room this laptop you're going to see just fine this 4/3 is going to be hard to look at same without doors or bright light I mean this laptops going to be fine you'll be able to see everything just right but on the Swift 3 it's going to be too dim now on the color side the Swift 3 again not so good it's very very inaccurate 38% on srgb is what Dave god I got 64% on this laptop and both of us are using the exact same test

Methodology that really is a very very big difference so you know colors on the Swift three are gonna look pretty bad but on this they're gonna look acceptable now what are you giving up you're giving up a little bit of performance the Swift 3 has the rise in 4700 new processor and this one the 4500 you now one is an 8 core 8 thread processor this is a six-course 6 thread processor the 4700 you can boost a hundred megahertz faster you're not going to notice that in multi-core if the Swift three can handle the heat it's gonna get about 25% faster but I

Would not trade off a useable display for that extra performance the only people who should consider that as someone who's predominantly using the Swift three with an external monitor the other trade-off of course is the Swift three is a fourteen inch laptop this is a 15-inch but honestly this 15 inch is quite lightweight at 3.7 pounds and back on the performance I heard that overseas you can upgrade the IdeaPad 515 inch to the 4700 ooh processor anyway I haven't been able to do it in the US but I have heard from viewers that they

Can do it overseas guys you know me I have access to a lot of high quality laptops and I am choosing to use the IdeaPad 515 inch the reason is the keyboard is excellent the trackpad is good enough as I said the display is decent and it's quite lightweight for a 15-inch laptop I would absolutely get it for $650 certainly over the Swift three anyway I'm gonna go back to working on my next videos which will be in my normal format hopefully high quality content that you've come to expect from me if this quick video did help you out
