    Hello!

    Two Black Friday deals and I can't decide which one to pick..

    Acer Swift 3 (299€) vs. HP 14 (249€)

    As an explanation:

    I don't ask for much and only a couple of things are important to me:

    • Small price (my goal was 500€, cheaper if possible)
    • Light weight
    • Smaller size (14" is my limit)
    • Keyboardbacklit

    What I want to do with it?

    • Office Programms
    • Writing and working on blogs
    • Use internet for music, videos, general things, etc

    I DO NOT want to play games, edit videos, workweith photoshop or do coding..
    That's why I don't ask for high end performance..
    But are 4gb RAM are enough with the Swift 3?...

    The guy in the computer shop said, that the Acer swift 3 would be a good laptop, but the build in specs are not enough nowadays..the SSD is too small and the 4gb RAM wouldn't get me far either..

    The battery seems to be better in the HP 14, also it is a bit lighter.
    On the other side, the HP 14 had no backlit keyboard (maybe I could do without ifii havehto..but its a good feature I think) and it has just 1 year of warranty...the Acer has 2!

    I hope someone can help! :)

    Hey, if you could translate to English ...most people here are English-speaking, I'm not sure many speak German.

    The HP is better in performance. The Acer has only 4GB of RAM, which is barely usable with Windows 10. Its Pentium processor is also slower, and it has half the drive space (128GB is not much). So I'd pick the HP if it were between those two.

    With limited money, I usually buy refurbished or second-hand. Maybe look for a ThinkPad T470 or a Dell Latitude E7470. Those are good quality business notebooks that you may be able to get for cheap now.
