Product description

The 14" Swift 3 Laptop from Acer features a compact chassis that is powered by a 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5-8250U processor along with 8GB of DDR4 RAM and a 256GB SSD, providing desktop-like computing performance while traveling. This level of performance lets you efficiently multitask and quickly access files and programs, and when handling a heavier workload is required, each of the processor's four cores can reach a max turbo frequency of 3.4 GHz. Windows 10 Home is the preinstalled operating system and occupies a portion of the SSD's 256GB storage capacity. Should you need more storage space, you can connect an external storage solution to one of the notebook's multiple USB ports, one of which is a convenient USB Type-C port.

The Swift 3 notebook comes armed with an 14" IPS display that provides wide viewing angles and vivid colors with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, which is powered by integrated Intel UHD graphics. For expanding the onscreen workspace, an HDMI port lets the system access an external display.

Accessing the Internet can be accomplished wirelessly via Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), and compatible wireless peripherals can pair using Bluetooth 4.0 technology. There's also a Gigabit Ethernet port for reliable access to the Internet. Other integrated features include a pair of speakers, webcam, microphone, 3.5mm audio jack, and SD card reader for quickly transferring files from mobile devices. Additionally, a fingerprint reader is on board for quickly accessing the system without typing a password on the notebook's backlit keyboard.

Windows 10 Home

    Start Menu
  • After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
    Cortana
  • Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
    Microsoft Edge
  • After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
    Windows Store
  • For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
    Windows Continuum
  • Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
    Xbox on Windows 10
  • Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

    context menu.

    Using the Precision Touchpad - 15

    USING THE PRECISION TOUCHPAD

    The touchpad controls the arrow (or 'cursor') on the screen. As you slide your finger across the touchpad, the cursor will follow this movement. The Precision Touchpad (PTP) is designed to provide a more uniform, smooth, and accurate touchpad experience. Many applications support precision touchpad gestures that use one or more fingers, however, some gestures may not be supported by the specific application or program you are using.

    Touchpad gestures

    Single-finger slide

    Slide a finger across the touchpad to move the cursor.

    Single-finger press or tap

    Press the touchpad down, or lightly tap the touchpad with your finger, to perform a 'click', which will select or start an item. Quickly repeat the tap to perform a double tap or 'double click'.

    Two-finger press

    Lightly tap the touchpad with two fingers to

    perform a 'right click'. In the Start screen, this will toggle the app commands. In most apps this will open a context menu related to the selected item.

    Two-finger slide

    Swiftly scroll through web pages, documents and playlists by placing two fingers on the touchpad and moving both in any direction.

    16 - Using the Precision Touchpad

    Two-finger pinch

    Zoom in and out of photos, maps and documents with a simple finger-and-thumb gesture.

    Three-finger press

    Lightly tap the touchpad with three fingers to open Cortana (if your computer supports Cortana) or open the Action Center (if your computer does not support Cortana).

    Three-finger swipe

    Swipe across the touchpad with three fingers.

    -Swipe up to open Task View. Move the cursor over a window and tap the touchpad to select that window, or swipe downwards to exit Task View.

    -Swipe down to minimize all open windows and show Desktop; swipe upwards to restore the minimized windows.

    -Swipe left or right to switch between open windows.

    The precision touchpad includes added technology features that help recognize and prevent unintentional gestures such as accidental taps, gestures, and pointer movement.

    Note

    The touchpad is sensitive to finger movement; the lighter the touch, the better the response. Please keep the touchpad and your fingers dry and clean.

    Changing touchpad settings

    To change the touchpad settings to suit your personal requirements, please do the following.

    1.In the icon tray in the lower right-hand corner of the screen, select the Notifications icon to open the Notifications pane.

    Using the Precision Touchpad - 17

    2. Select All settings.

    3. Select Devices > Mouse & touchpad.

    4.Now you can adjust the settings to suit your personal needs. You can change the primary button for leftor right-handed use, turn the touchpad off if you prefer to use a mouse, or set a delay to prevent

    18 - Using the Precision Touchpad

    the cursor from moving if you accidentally tap the touchpad with your palm while working. Scroll down to see more settings.

    RECOVERY

    If you are having trouble with your computer, and the frequently asked questions (see Got a question? on page 54) do not help, you can recover your computer.

    This section describes the recovery tools available on your computer. Acer provides Acer Care Center, which allows you to reset your PC, refresh your PC, or create a factory default backup.

    Note

    Acer Care Center is only available with a pre-installed Windows operating system.

    Important

    We recommend that you create a Factory Default Backup as soon as possible. In certain situations a full recovery will require a USB recovery backup.

    9.Unplug the USB drive and label it clearly.

    Important

    Write a unique, descriptive label on the backup, such as 'Windows Recovery Backup'. Make sure you keep the backup in a safe place that you will remember.

    26 - Using a Bluetooth connection USING A BLUETOOTH CONNECTION Bluetooth is a technology enabling you to transfer data wirelessly over short distances between many different types of devices. Bluetooth- enabled devices include computers, cell phones, tablets, wireless headsets, and keyboards. To use Bluetooth, you must ensure the following: 1.Bluetooth is enabled on both devices. 2.Your devices are "paired" (or connected). Enabling and disabling Bluetooth The Bluetooth adapter must be enabled on both devices. For your computer, this may be an external switch, a software setting, or a separate Bluetooth dongle plugged into the computer’s USB port (if no internal Bluetooth adapter is available). Enable Bluetooth and add a device Every new device must first be "paired" with your computer’s Bluetooth adapter. This means it must first be authenticated for security purposes. You only need to pair once. After that, simply turning on the Bluetooth adapter of both devices will connect them. Bluetooth on your computer is disabled by default. To enable your computer’s Bluetooth adapter, do the following: 1.Press the Windows key or select the Windows Start button > Settings > Devices > Bluetooth, and click the toggle under Bluetooth to enable/disable it. 2.Your computer will automatically start searching for devices, as well as make itself visible to other devices.

    28 - Connecting to the Internet CONNECTING TO THE INTERNET This chapter includes general information on types of connections, and getting connected to the internet. For detailed information, please refer to Network connections on page 71. Your computer’s built-in network features make it easy for you to connect your computer to the internet. First though, in order to connect to the internet from home, you’ll need to sign up for internet services from an ISP (Internet Service Provider) -- usually a phone or cable company -- that will have to go to your home or office to set up internet service. The ISP will install a small box, a router or modem, that will allow you to connect to the internet. Connecting to a wireless network Connecting to a wireless LAN A wireless LAN (or WLAN) is a wireless local area network, which can link two or more computers without using wires. Once connected to WLAN, you can access the internet. You can also share files, other devices, and even your internet connection itself. Your computer's wireless connection is turned on by default and Windows will detect and display a list of available networks during setup. Select your network and enter the password if required. Acer notebook computers feature an Airplane mode hotkey that turns the network connection on or off. You can use the network management options to turn your wireless network on/off or control what is shared over the network. Warning Using wireless devices while flying in aircraft may be prohibited. All wireless devices must be switched off before boarding an aircraft and during take-off, as they may be dangerous to the operation of the aircraft, disrupt communications, and even be illegal. You may turn on your computer’s wireless devices only when informed that it is safe to do so by the cabin crew.

    Page: 28

    Connecting to the Internet - 29 To connect to a wireless network, please follow the steps below. 1.Ensure you have a wireless router/access point and current internet connection through the ISP of your choice. Make a note of the wireless network’s name and password (if necessary). If you are trying to connect to a public network (such as at a coffeeshop), make sure you have the wireless network’s name. 2.In the icon tray in the lower right-hand corner of the screen, select the Notifications icon to open the Notifications pane. 3.Select All settings. 4.Select Network & internet.

    44 - Battery pack BATTERY PACK The computer uses an embedded Lithium battery that gives you long use between charges. Battery characteristics The battery is recharged whenever you connect the computer to the AC adapter. Your computer supports charge-in-use, enabling you to recharge the battery while you continue to operate the computer. However, recharging with the computer turned off significantly reduces charge time. The battery will come in handy when you travel or during a power failure. Charging the battery Plug the AC adapter into the computer, and connect to a mains power outlet. Conditioning a new battery pack Before you use a battery pack for the first time, there is a conditioning process that you should follow: 1.Connect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery. 2.Turn on the computer and complete setting up the operating system. 3.Disconnect the AC adapter. 4.Operate the computer using battery power. 5.Reconnect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery again. Follow these steps again until the battery has been charged and discharged three times. Note You are advised to charge the battery before retiring for the day. Charging the battery overnight before traveling enables you to start the next day with a fully charged battery.

    Battery pack - 45 Use this conditioning process for all new batteries, or if a battery hasn't been used for a long time. The battery conditioning process ensures your battery accepts the maximum possible charge. Failure to follow this procedure will prevent you from obtaining the maximum battery charge, and will also shorten the effective lifespan of the battery. In addition, the useful lifespan of the battery is adversely affected by the following usage patterns: • Using the computer on constant AC power. • Not discharging and recharging the battery to its extremes, as described above. • Frequent use; the more you use the battery, the faster it will reach the end of its effective life. An embedded battery has a life span of more than 1,000 charge/discharge cycles. Optimizing battery life Optimizing battery life helps you get the most out of battery operation, prolonging the charge/recharge cycle and improving recharging efficiency. You are advised to follow the suggestions set out below: • Use AC power whenever possible, reserving battery for mobile use. • Remove accessories that are not being used (e.g. a USB disk drive), as they can continue to draw power. • Store your PC in a cool, dry place. The recommended temperature is 10° C (50° F) to 30° C (86° F). Higher temperatures cause the battery to self-discharge faster. • Excessive recharging decreases the battery life. • Look after your AC adapter and battery. Warning Do not expose battery packs to temperatures below 0° C (32° F) or above 45° C (113° F). Extreme temperatures may adversely affect the battery pack.

When the battery-low warning appears, the recommended course of action depends on your situation: Important Connect the AC adapter as soon as possible after the battery-low warning appears. Data may be lost if the battery is allowed to become fully depleted and the computer shuts down. Situation Recommended Action The AC adapter and a power outlet are available. 1. Plug the AC adapter into the computer, and then connect to the main power supply. 2. Save all necessary files. 3. Resume work. Turn off the computer if you want to recharge the battery rapidly.
