Acer presents this laptop as a standard product dedicated to a low-resource usage. This Swift 3 SF314-57-74J9 Argent is a multipurpose laptop that will suit most uses, whether it’s for playing resource-efficient games, light photo editing, or for office work and web browsing. In short, this is a an unremarkable computer that is not comfortable with strictly multimedia use.
This small model is equipped with a thumb screen 14, in 1920×1080, and a good quality of colours. Despite this, the colors are correct, and the contrasts allow you to see the details. The major disadvantage of its small size is that in multimedia mode, watching a movie can be tiring for your eyes. The big advantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop that weighs only a 1.2 kilogram.
The glossy screen option is not possible on this model; it would have made the display easier to read. This results in poorer quality in environments with intermediate to low light levels. The readability of the display is therefore a little lower.
In short, you’ll prefer this finish for daytime movie viewing.

On the application side, Acer chose to let you do it. Only the operating system is installed. This is a Windows 10 that allows you to add the free or paid software you want. Clearly, to watch movies, nothing more.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one Intel Iris Plus G7, which with 8 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). This will obviously be a bit light if you want to do 3D imaging, but will suit your needs.
In the connectivity part, you have 3 ports available. In the norm compared to most other computers in the competition.Just what you need to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
