Acer Swift X SFX14-41G-R1S6 Review And Specification

Acer Swift X SFX14-41G-R1S6 Review And Specification

 For artists. The Acer Swift X SFX14-41G-R1S6, which was announced in time for Computex 2021, takes the Acer Swift brand into the world of creative laptops with strong specs offered at an excellent price without including rarely-used luxuries that drive up the cost of some of the best laptops available.

Therefore, the Acer Swift X doesn't attempt to be the lightest or thinnest laptop, and it lacks both the Asus ZenBook 13's and the Dell XPS 9310's beautiful OLED displays. Instead, it excels where it counts, sporting a quick AMD Ryzen processor and, for the first time, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics card, the finest available for a laptop this small, even if you don't want to spend a lot of money on the most expensive models.

The SFX14-41G-R1S6 model of the Acer Swift X is the model we're reviewing. It combines a capable Ryzen 7 CPU with a powerful RTX 30 Series GPU for the best real-world performance, making it a great laptop for anyone who just needs something that gets the job done, whether it's for gaming, professional content creation, or everyday productivity.

Acer Swift X SFX14-41G-R1S6 Design

It's actually to the Acer SFX14-41G-R1S6's advantage that it resembles other Acer Swift laptops in terms of appearance. It keeps things understated, is straightforward but not ugly, and you won't be embarrassed to take a photo of it from your backpack while working on your laptop in a coffee shop.

The Acer Swift X is a bog-standard laptop design for 2021, measuring just 0.7 inches (17.9mm) thick and weighing 3.06 pounds (1.39kg), yet it's still small enough to fit in your backpack for your daily commute.

Once more, despite the Swift X's very simple appearance, it boasts a very strong chassis and hinges. There is no flex in the aluminum chassis, which provides a quality feel and replicates the silver hue of the Apple MacBook Pro 13. Even the display is very sturdy, so you shouldn't be concerned that it will collapse if it were to inadvertently fall off your lap.


  • Ports: 1x USB-C, 2x USB-A, 1x HDMI, 1x 3.5mm headphones jack
  • Wi-Fi 6 connectivity

Even by today's standards, the Acer Swift X's typical thickness does allow for a good selection of ports. There is a dedicated charge connector on the left, along with an HDMI, USB-A, and USB-C that can be utilized for charging.

A Kensington Lock port, a combo 3.5mm audio jack, and a USB-A port are all located on the right. We are pleased to find standard ports on the Swift X, as larger ports are typically being reduced on laptops. We are unhappy that there isn't an SD card in this device, especially given that Acer markets the Swift X at creative professionals and students. The right side of the laptop has enough room.


  • 14-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS LCD panel
  • 300 nits brightness, 100% sRGB gamut

The 14-inch 1080p display on the Acer Swift X provides 300 nits of brightness and 100% sRGB color coverage. Although we are content with it as is, a more vibrant or high-resolution display could be more beneficial for creative work.

However, this laptop is more than adequate for office work, schoolwork, and sending a few emails. The speakers can handle a brief chat without you reaching for your headphones, but their little sound output won't fill a room.

Keyboard & Touchpad

The keyboard is really pleasant for the price and works well for prolonged typing sessions. The travel is smooth, the individual keys are deep, and the bottoming out won't harm your fingers. A comfortable keyboard is often overlooked by laptop manufacturers, yet the Acer Swift X provides this much-needed luxury.

A roomy touchpad that is quick to respond to taps and swipes is located underneath the keyboard. There are several additional features as well, such as a Windows Hello camera for faces or an embedded fingerprint scanner.
