    Hi, does the chassis have any flex? Also, how bad is the touchpad? Does it not feel sturdy at all?

        Hi, this laptop only has one slot ssd, right? If I want to upgrade the ssd, I should change the ssd that attached at the laptop. How to transfer all the file system to the new ssd?

        You can use an external M.2 USB enclosure for that. They are available on amazon, etc. You pop the new SSD into the enclosure, copy everything over and then put that inside the laptop. However, what I'd recommend is to put the new SSD in the laptop, install a fresh WIndows copy, and then put the old SSD into the enclosure and copy the content that you need onto the new one.

    Why did the Acer SF312 52 has a Ram Clock Speed of 1596Mhz (3192 Mhz) according to your review which is the max supported speed by Ice Lake but this model SF314 57 only got 1330 Mhz (2660Mhz).
    We didnt see any memory clock here at your HWinfo screenshots but that is my own readout

    Why did my question get removed?

    Still pending question. Why does its Ram is clocked at 2666Mhz while its sister model the SF314 52 has 3200Mhz. And why did you cut out Memory Speed out of HWinfo on this one?

      Sry it took longer to reply to this comment, I was away for a few days. I don't have an answer, could be an error in reporting, or could be a limitation on this system.

      You can, and while I couldn't properly test it, it should be x4.

    I have bought one of this , the ulrtaboook is smart , fast and easy to use , the only thing that I notify is the heat of chassis when the laptop is on charge , on the top of the keyboard near the screen. After 2 months I've noticed that when i am playing a game like football manger or some software then starts the fan even if the charge cycle is over!
