The Acer Swift 3X isn’t exactly a “budget” laptop, but it is one of the more affordable on this list and available overall. And even though it has a more budget-friendly price, that doesn’t mean that it has skimped out on features and components. It’s built with an 11th gen Intel Core i7 processor, integrated Intel Iris Xe Max graphics, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD for plenty of power, memory, and storage for work projects, browsing the web, and streaming movies, shows, and music. Acer claims that the Swift 3X’s battery can give you an astounding 17.5 hours of use on a full charge, but our testing got us closer to 14 hours; which is still very, very impressive. A built-in fingerprint reader gives you added security for your work and personal data, while Thunderbolt 4 connections allow for ultra-fast data transfers, device charging, and external display connections when you need more space to work. It also supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth for faster wireless internet speeds and wireless peripheral connections so you can stay up-to-date with work, in contact with friends and family, and up-to-speed on the latest Netflix and Prime Video releases.
