Be aware that the Acer Swift deal comes with DDR4 (this is DDR3) and weights about 3/4 of a pound less for $65 more. Lacks a CD drive and VGA port if that matters to you though. The finish seems to be a bit nicer on the Swift as well. The Swift also has a higher mAh battery.

think you mighyt have it backwards. The acer swift linked in that thread https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...0DER&psc=1

comes with ddr3...

this laptop claims to have much better battery life than the swift (15 hours vs 10 hours) but doesnt say if it is DDR3 or DDR4 in the amazon description

I'd say this is the better deal overall but i tend to like 14" laptops

The SD post is wrong about the DDR3. Look at the Amazon link and ACERs Website. The Swift 3 is DDR4.

If you type in OPs model on Acer's website "E5-576G-56HU", it says under tech specs that it is DDR3.

EDIT: I see the confusion... I was referring to the 15" not the 14"... they are actually both part of that post. The 15" is more apples to apples.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...0DER&psc=1

OP I'm pretty sure you're info is wrong stating this is DDR4 unless ACER's website is not correct.

2 questions:

First: How does this have a 6 cell battery with with lower 2800 mAh compared to a 4 cell 3200mAh battery? You'd expect a 6 cell to have a much larger capacity than a 4 cell just by the amount of cells and the finite capacity of each cell.

Second:How does this suggest 15 hour runtime and it is powering a 15.6" screen which is more power hungry than the 14" of the Swift that only boasts 10 hours?

This model comes with DDR4, the Acer description is probably wrong and they'll correct it. E15 series is their budget solution and they are coming with DDR4 Ram for a while now. The Acer product page description also does not list the dedicated GPU as well. And I am sure of it because 8th Gen Processors does not support DDR3 Memory, they either support DDR4L or LPDDR3 as an embedded solution. Acer site mentioned it as DDR3L or Laptop DDR3 module which is not supported by 8th Gen CPUs

Now regarding the Acer Swift models, Swift 3 15 comes with DDR4 Ram but integrated graphics whreas Swift 3 14 comes with LPDDR3 memory which is also not upgradable as well.

Seems decent. Is there a reason these new 8th gen laptops are fairly cheap? Considering they just came out. It looks like Acer lists the same price on their site

huh? I am on a Swift 3 14" 7th gen as we speak. Why would the older one I have come with DDR4 and the newer 8th gen Swift 3 regress back to the older DDR3L?

Not DDR3L, LPDDR3. Most of the laptop manufacturers, when design Laptops without upgradable memory, they use LPDDR3 technology which directly integrates in the motherboard, nit like a DDR3L or DDR4L Ram soldered in the motherboard.
The reason is LPDDR3 consumes lesser power than both standard DDR3L and DDR4L Memory and since the design is not for upgrading, they use this to conserve battery life. Example, Apple Macbook series and Dell XPS 13.

But since you will asking questions again, here is the Product page of the Acer Swift 3 14 I am talking about, explicitly specifying that it has LPDDR3:-
