FYI.

This laptop is listed on Amazon as a 14" in the title description. However, if you scroll down, you will see that it is described as 13.3". The BH website lists this as Manufacturer No. NX.H3ZAA.001. The Amazon website lists this as Model No. SF313-51-57EQ. The Acer.com website [acer.com] matches both of these numbers up to the same identical product.

Costco has HP Pavilion 15.6" Touchscreen Laptop - Intel Core i5 - 1080p for $479 which appears to be better deal than this one.

That is a big 15.6" Laptop. Not sure why you are even comparing a 15.6" Laptop with a ultraportable 13.3" laptop.

Not a good choice for image processing.
I'm also interested in a laptop for this. What specs should I be looking for if this one isn't appropriate for it? Any info would be appreciated.

I don't think this Acer falls in Premium category just because it is smaller in size. Costco one has touchscreen which few people might be interested in. These are my views, people can make their own calls which one to prefer. Not to forget extra cashback and one of the best customer services from Costco.

Does it matter what you think if there is no base for it? Why are you gong by brand for judging a particular product is premium or not? Just like every other company, Acer makes Laptop for every segments and they Swift 3 is ther mid-tier premium segments and this laptop is premium. Dell has XPS 15 which is one of the best premium Windows laptop and Inspiration 3000 series which is all plastic el cheapo Laptops. Does that mean Dell laptops are premium?

If you don't care about portability, sure. Smaller/thinner machines always carry a price premium over full sized systems.

Edit, Costco link for the lazy: https://www.costco.com/HP-Pavilio...80825.html
4lb is not bad at all to carry around

I have a different Swift 3 laptop model, but I think all of them use the same type of AC adapter with a 3.0mm x 1.1mm barrel connector for the charging tip. It's thinner than that used on other AC adapters I've used for other laptops. I found this connector is very fragile and can get bended or break off easily. In the past 2 years, I've already gone thru 3 AC adapters where the connector got damaged and had to be replaced. I don't know why Acer designs their Swift 3 laptops to use these types of AC adapters. If I had known before that I would have so many issues with the AC adapter, I would not have bought this laptop.

I bought a similar Acer model last BF, for my mom. I don't like the offset touchpad and am not crazy about the keyboard. The build is nice but don't like aforementioned.

Good find. though i agree w/ the other posters that the biggest reason to get the Acer over the HP is the weight/portability. 2.8lb vs 4lb is actually pretty noticeable. I've tried a few laptops at different weights, and i definitely noticed the difference once you go under 3 lbs vs around 4 lbs. For commuters who need to lug their laptops daily with long walking distance, weight is a huge factor.

Other than that, the HP looks like a very solid option, including Intel 2x2 wifi chip and what looks like to be upgradable ram.

I had purchased a couple of Swift 3 14" from Costco for $500-550 in the past. For the price range, these laptops have excellent build quality and specs. Decent battery life too. Highly recommend for basic use.

Just one thing you should remeber is that Pavilion lineup is all plastic construction and have some CPU throttling issues.

Good deal for students. Same specs as the surface laptop 2 minus the screen. I believe the ram is onboard and so cannot be upgraded later.

I read the review that was linked and they knocked it for a plastic body. Am I missing something? Is this an aluminum body or plastic? I haven't seen any spec that says aluminum?
