When we last reviewed the Acer Swift 3 (opens in new tab) back in 2020,, we gave it a decent 4 out of 5 star rating thanks to a myriad of reason – mainly the exceptional power for the price. The recent model keeps that same level of performance while clocking in at almost $300 cheaper thanks to this deal, and is easily one of the best student laptops (opens in new tab) for the price.
The good news is that this recent model features the latest USB Type-C port, a must have with recent laptops as it adds a ton of versatility to the machine. It also features a powerful Lithium-Ion battery that provides up to 16 hours of battery life, which is unheard of in comparable laptops.
From a personal perspective, the Acer Swift laptops are great options for those on a budget. I've had the luck of trying a few out over the past few years and they've been great at basic tasks, but editing and more resource intensive tasks may struggle. The step up 2-in-1 cousin, the Acer Spin 3 (on sale for $722 at Amazon (opens in new tab)), is a much better options if you're looking to step into photo or video editing classes.
