The Acer Swift 5 is a machine packed with solid specs.

The specs are jam-packed in a 970g chassis that has a sleek magnesium-lithium cover. It weighs at 0.97kg.

My niece, Angela calls this laptop a “queen of handy notebooks”.

She says: “This laptop is small and sleek. It can just disappear in my school bag.”

I can concur with Angela.

The laptop feels like an empty shell with no processor.

But, the Acer Swift 5 is filled with the powerful 8th Gen Intel Core i5 processor.

I love this laptop as I am a light traveller and don’t like to carry heavy things in my bag.

I was also impressed by the fact that this laptop has an HDMI port that I have used to connect my Kwese Play set top box to be able to enjoy Netflix movies.

You can also connect more peripherals on this laptop. It has two USB 3.0 ports that are backed by a USB 3.1 Type-C port. This is better than the Acer Swift 7, which has two USB Type-C ports (one reserved for charging purposes), a nanoSIM card slot and a headphone jack.

The Swift 7 also doesn’t accommodate HDMI and Ethernet.

Furthermore, the Acer Swift 5 comes with a 802.11ac wireless antenna and 2×2 MIMO, which enabled me to enjoy downloading, streaming and browsing that was faster than other laptops.

This also enabled the laptop to have a consistent, strong wireless internet signal.

When it comes to battery life, this laptop didn’t disappoint as I overworked it for two weeks. The battery during our test lasted for only between 7 and 8 hours.

I could stream Netflix content without worrying about recharging the device.

It a great device to own.
