Amazon AU looks to have a good deal on the Acer Swift 3 14". The main benefits I see with this laptop compared to recent deals posted which are slightly cheaper.
- Better multi-core performance due to having a AMD Ryzen hexa core (6 core) processor
- Better build quality due to magnesium/aluminum chassis vs the plastic in others
- Battery life is up to 12hrs, and 3rd party reviews (laptopmag.com) seem to indicate that it gets close to this number (11hrs) based on usage of course.
- Wifi 6 support vs Wifi 5
- USB-C support which cheaper laptops seem to lack
- Only weighs 1.2kg vs the heaver plastic chassis.
Also some manufactures seem to have a 1 month wait time for delivery, which this doesn't seem to have.
Thanks to Tevada, you can also get this laptop from The Good Guys at the same price.
