Acer Swift 3 14", AMD Ryzen 4300U, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 1080p IPS $697 Delivered @ Officeworks

180

Spilt coffee on my laptop so was looking for a replacement. Missed out on the Vivobook deal this morning but this doesn’t look too bad.

A few bucks cheaper than the last Amazon deal in this spec,which seemed pretty popular.

    Glad to see this, but Ryzen 3/8GB/256GB seems to be around this price normally?

    Was this price in November at Amazon btw

    • Yes I mentioned that in the OP

  • +4

      This is the first laptop I've seen with dedicated Intel Xe graphics.

  • +2

    I wonder how easy it'll be to upgrade to 16gb

  • How does it compare to this Dell computer on ebay for $599.20 https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/392979774633?

    • its 15 so its full sized compared to this 1.2 kg thing and its past gen.

      pass on that

    - RAM soldered onto motherboard (no vacant RAM slots)

  • I spilt coffee in my laptop, computer guy couldn't fix it or retrieve data so I had a go at taking it apart myself, cleaned all connections with isopropyl alcohol, left to dry and put back together. Works fine now, just lost right click on trackpad. Might be worth a shot if you need to retrieve data from yours. Turned it off straight away after the spill too which might have helped

    • There’re some tiny star screws on the back of mine that I can’t get off.Was going to take them to a repair shop to let them have a go tomorrow.

      Worst case scenario is I’d get a ssd back

  • Worth it to spend a bit more to get this https://www.amazon.com.au/ASUS-VivoBook-Processor-Fingerprin... ? Better processor, double the storage and free shipping with prime.

    • These Asus Amazon deals seem to be popular with people here and personally I'd probably go with this but $170 isn't 'a bit' more

  • Will this be able to run a 4k monitor?
