While we didn't get our hands on the Acer Swift 3 OLED, we reviewed its predecessor. In our 11th Gen Intel Acer Swift 3 review, we praise its speedy performance and lightweight, subtle design. In Geekbench 5.4 benchmark tests, the Acer Swift 3 notched a score of 6,205. This beats the ultra-portable laptop average score of 5,342. 

We expect the laptop in this deal to be on par with its previous-gen sibling. Its 12th Gen Intel CPU should have no issue breezing through emails, creating documents and binge-watching on Netflix or Peacock.

For connecting peripherals, the Acer Swift 3 OLED affords you an ample array of ports. You get 2 x USB Type-C ports, 2 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, 1 x HDMI 2.1 port, and a headphone/mic combo jack.
