The Acer Swift 3 is an amazing laptop that really shows off the astounding performance of AMD's Ryzen processor, which somehow still sips power allowing it to deliver over 11 hours of battery life in our testing. This model includes a 14.1-inch, full HD display, a Ryzen 5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD.

The Acer Swift 3 (2020, AMD) absolutely stunned us when we reviewed it earlier this year after having been somewhat unimpressed with the Intel model.

This particular model comes with a 14.1-inch, full HD display, a Ryzen 5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. While this model is a Ryzen 5 compared to the Ryzen 7 of our review unit, we saw performance results on par with top-tier $2,000 laptops like the MacBook Pro or Dell XPS 13

Battery life was the next shocker as it managed 11 hours and 9 minutes on our Laptop Mag Battery test. It beat the Intel model by four hours and is just two minutes shy from we saw from the pricier HP Envy 13. The Acer Swift 3 garnered our Editor's Choice award and a rightful place among the best laptops this year. The performance is simply astounding, particularly when you take into account the price of this laptop. Now slash an additional $140 off its retail price and you can see why this is a deal to get excited about.

The island-style keyboard of the Swift 3 offers springy feedback making it an excellent option for those that need to churn out a lot of text on their laptop. And if you need to tote it around with you the 2.65-pound weight should make that easy enough and at just 0.6-inches thick it won't take up too much room in your bag either. For your connectivity needs, the Swift 3 has a single HDMI 2.0 ports, a USB Type-C ports, a USB 3.2 Type-A, a USB 2.0 Type-A, and a headphone/mic combo jack.

Cyber Monday weekend is here and we're already seeing tons of deals on today’s best mobile tech. Be sure to bookmark our Cyber Monday 2020 deals hub for this year's best holiday discounts.
