Would need some advice if possible: 1- Would this Acer Swift 1 laptop (Pentium N5000, 4Gb, and 128Gb SSD) be enough for video streaming (Youtube, etc..), working with Office documents, and some light photo editing?
2- There is an opportunity to get this laptop with a 8Gb of RAM instead of 4Gb, would this make a significant difference in performance knowing that its still N5000 processor and 128Gb of SSD storage?
Slim case, medium/small 14" size, screen is not crap (is actually kind'a good), it has "enough" CPU, GPU and SSD speeds for web surfing and the like, great wifi+bluetooth, very long battery life...
Only thing I can think of is those non-upgradeable 4 GB, that I'd prefer 8 GB (which would make it a bit more future-proof), but... taking into consideration current RAM prices (through the roof), and this laptop's characteristics/price ratio, this thing is PERFECT for my father.
Elegant endurance runner. Acer's 14-incher offers an excellent battery life, an elegant, slim metal case, a keyboard illumination, and a matte IPS display. The new Pentium Silver N5000 quad-core processor has significantly more computing power than its predecessor, advancing into the range of earlier Core-i3 processors with this. You have to pay almost 600 Euros (~$707) for the whole package.
