    The lower than standard battery capacity shouldn't be a con, when the device is efficient enough to reach good battery life.

    -The Yoga 730 reviewed uses substantially more power.
    -The Zenbook S UX391 uses much more power.
    -Yoga 920-13IKB Glass uses much more power, and gets same battery life despite using 45% larger battery.

      Yes, you have a point. This laptop runs more efficiently than others. Edited

    Hi, is the HDMI port 2.0 or 1.4, I'm curious if I can use my 4k monitor at 60hz with this laptop. Thanks!

      As far as I remember, it's 1.4 . But please double check with other sources.

    Really no TB3, touchscreen options and upgradable RAM? Also I don't remember any modern Acer laptop with a decent keyboard. The Ideapad 720s 14 came out last year for $750 MSRP (and that was i5 iirc) and now more than a year later Acer, Asus and HP are all still playing catch up it seems.

    I may be missing something but are there any practical benefits to that flipped board design?

    I'm currently typing this on a Swift 3 SF314-52G that I'm probably sending back as the place I ordered it from had it listed as new and I was sent a recertified laptop. My question is about the Swift 3 SF314-54. The one I was looking at is the I5 with integrated graphics chip and 256GB SSD. My question was about the screen brightness. I haven't been able to find any reviews of the 54 model series online, and it looks like the 55 and 56 will be a bit of a price jump here, as I can get the above mentioned model for $650 (US). The SF314-52G does have a rather dim screen and its very reflective when near windows. The SF314-54 lists what is called ComfyView, which I assume is the matte screen finish on the newer versions. But I cannot find any information on the screen brightness/nits of this model. From your reviews, it looks like a 50% increase from the 52 to the 55/56 models, so I was curious as to whether the 54 may use the same screen as the 55/56. Also, whether there is an extra HDD/SDD slot in the SF314-54 would be helpful.
