Acer is the go-to PC manufacturer for many people looking for an affordable device. The Acer Swift 3, a mid-range option with some high-end features, is currently on sale at B&H for just $599. That’s $300 off the regular price. This is one of the best Black Friday laptops deals out there right now, but it won’t last through the night. Be sure to capitalize if you’re interested.
This Swift 3 is a refresh of the 2020 model I reviewed last year, bringing a faster quad-core 11th Gen Intel Core i7-1165G7 CPU, 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM, and 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD. One of the laptop’s best features is its 13.5-inch display with tall 3:2 aspect ratio, 2256×1504 resolution, and IPS panel with 100% sRGB color reproduction. At the time I mentioned that it was outpaced by the similar AMD Ryzen model, but performance should be much closer now that it’s been upgraded with the 11th Gen Intel chips.
Acer Swift 3 13.5 | $300 off
This Swift 3 has a 2K display with 3:2 aspect ratio, 11th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, sizable 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD, and excellent battery life. This deal won’t last through the night!
The model I reviewed with 10th Gen Intel CPU last more than 12 hours on a battery charge while delivering excellent performance. Those stats have only improved with 11th Gen Intel chips, proven by Intel Evo certification. The keyboard and touchpad are excellent, the build is lightweight but sturdy, and Wi-Fi 6 is included for fast wireless internet. Ports include HDMI 2.0, Thunderbolt 4, two USB-A, and 3.5mm audio.
The Swift 3 makes a case for itself at the regular price, but at $300 this is definitely a great deal if you’re looking for a laptop that can handle a heavy workload. The deal won’t last much longer, so don’t wait if it’s what you’ve been looking for.
