Acer Swift 3 14” Laptop (Manufacturer Refurbished)
Despite its slender and lightweight build, the Acer Swift holds deceptive power. The snappy dual-core processor keeps everything running smooth by balancing the workload among its two independent cores, while a solid-state drive ensures fast load times for applications.
An OS for the Modern Machine
Windows 10 pairs the flexibility of a traditional computer operating system with the intuitive layout of a mobile OS. A fast new web browser, the media- and app-filled Windows Store, and Cortana personal assistant come pre-installed, working together to help you easily navigate to what you’d like to see or do.
Solid-State Drive: Speed and Reliability
The built-in solid-state drive (SSD) performs the same duties of a traditional hard-disk drive, but up to 100 times faster. Unlike hard-disk drives, SSDs don’t rely on moving parts to write, store, and retrieve data; instead, they use flash memory chips that can boot up your computer and launch apps in mere seconds. Without the moving parts, SSDs are also lighter, take up less space within your computer, and are less susceptible to damage and data loss from computer bumps.
Work and Play in Full High Definition
From full-length films to funny video clips, virtually everything you see on this computer’s display renders in crisp, lifelike detail. Its 1080p full HD resolution is the same as that of many big-screen HDTVs, fitting the same amount of pixels—just more than 2 million—into a smaller space, so even everyday websites appear sharp and realistic. In addition to heightening the impact of streaming shows, video games, and other visual media, full HD resolution makes photos pop and can help you get a more accurate look at potential online purchases.
Video Chat with Anyone, Anywhere
A built-in webcam can make it feel like people miles away are in the room with you, helping you connect more clearly than with a phone call or email. Collaborate with colleagues in other offices, listen as your niece or nephew rapturously explains their finger painting, or laugh every time your friend’s cat walks across their keyboard.

Acer is a classic success story: it began as a husband-and-wife team with a handful of employees and grew into one of the bestselling names in laptop computers. In 2007, after acquiring both Gateway and Packard Bell, Acer was the No. 2 bestselling brand in the world for notebooks. But like many companies with humble roots, Acer has remained committed to its values, winning dozens of awards for sustainability and product design. Those two values meet in products such as recyclable notebook computers and the V6 series monitors, which were made with post-consumer recycled material. And the public notices: at the close of 2014, Acer landed a top spot on Amazon’s holiday bestseller list with its Chromebook, and the Aspire V laptop won a PC Magazine Editor’s Choice Award, promising much of what the brand is known for: “an entry-level gaming laptop with some real muscle, showing impressive performance and solid battery life without the expense of a premium system.”
