Acer's 13-inch Swift 7 is the lightest, thinnest and most portable ultra-extreme in the market, coupled with a fan-less design, so it doesn't have much noise to run. At the same time, the Swift 7 design is also very stylish, and keyboard feel is also I experienced in all the superb level of the super, and the large touch pad is also very comfortable to use.
But that does not mean Swift 7 is perfect, and of course there are drawbacks.
First, Swift 7 is priced at $1050 (about 7090 yuan), although its positioning is a high-end Windows system notebook, but the price is not really cheap. In addition, even though the price is in place, at run speed, the Acer Aspire S 13来, which I had previously evaluated more cheaply, said it would be a bit slower.
As Swift 7 in pursuit of the ultra-thin fuselage, this led to a fan-less design, which resulted in Swift 7 using the Y-series processor of the baby Kaby Lake architecture, rather than the more powerful U-series chips, so there are a number of competitors that have better performance than Swift 7 at this price.
However, in daily use, the power of only 7w chip is basically able to deal with most of the task, the reaction speed and Aspire S 13 gap is not big. Of course, the fan-less design also makes Swift 7 very quiet and quiet enough for me to be somewhat uncomfortable.
From the experience of the entire Swift 7, Swift 7, which has a very portable fuselage, is worth the money and performance can meet the day-to-day needs of ordinary users. However, in some features, compared with the same price products also have disadvantages, such as not support touch screen, no keyboard backlight function. Of course, although the endurance is not bad, but the interface is also a bit less.
Let's take a look at the details below.
Now let's start with the interface. First of all, on the good side, this is a cool feature, yes, Swift 7 can be recharged only via a USB type-c interface, and the charging interface can also be used to transmit data or connect other accessories.
But the two interfaces on the right side of the fuselage are a little bit closer and have a 3.5mm headphone interface. If your USB drive is too large, it is likely that there will be problems that cannot be used at the same time. Luckily, my USB drive is small enough to be plugged in at the same time.
Like Swift 7, which offers only USB type-c connectors, the most troubling thing is that if you want to use the original USB connector, you have to use an adapter or a switch plug. However, as more and more products begin to adopt this design, the future includes HDMI, Ethernet port and USB interface will be replaced by USB type-c, so the next few years will appear a large number of USB Type-c connector accessories, at this point, Swift 7 counted ahead.
To help users make the transition, Acer offers two conversion headers in the Swift 7 package, usb-c to Usb-a and usb-c to the HDMI interface.
Another thing is that Swift 7 is not equipped with a card reader, so if a photographer friend wants to move the photo from the SD card to Swift 7, it will have to be connected to the card reader with the conversion head. Of course, choose Wi-Fi wireless transmission is also possible.
From my personal point of view, it has been adapted to the process of USB-C interface conversion. In addition to the wireless mouse, I have all the devices using the conversion head to connect, although it seems a bit complicated now, but at least did not affect my normal use./span>
