    Ok so the swift 3 is the only implementation of the mx150 in a 14"/13" known so far not to be under clocked.

    I dont understand, its get phenomenal reviews yet its screen is TERRIBLE, 56% sRGB at 190 nits......

    How would I find a compatible screen to replace it? Preferable more resolution like 1440p.

    No, the screen is covered in glass which makes it impossible to upgrade without breaking it first. Head over to the "What notebook should I buy?" section of the forum, and fill out the form stickied at the top of the page so that the community can find a laptop which suitable to your needs and your budget.

    No Im fine thanks. Just wanted to know if anyone had upgraded the LCD underneath the glass. its nits and srgb are pretty bad but its the only ultrabook that uses the non underclocked mx150.

    At it's size and weight, the T480 (not T480s) also has a proper MX150 in the same form factor as the Swift 3 14." So far as I know, no 13" implementation exists, because every notebook manufacturer is chasing mm as the TDP keeps increasing.

    I'm assuming you have already bought the Swift 3? Acer seems to add an extra bullet point of "ComfyView" to the i7 version.
