Acer Swift 3 - SF315-51G - One of the Best Budget Laptops for multimedia users.

I was looking for a budget laptop for some multimedia work like video editing. Surfing the internet and looking at various online shopping site I came across this, which has premium looks and also got some real hardware to handle some tough works. I usually do video editing and require some good hardware to handle those resource hungry tasks. I found this laptop suitable for me. Both the looks and the hardware are matched with the price so that you don't have to compromise on any front.

I have been using this for last 5 days and did not observe any lag till now. It has two versions, one that comes with Ubuntu Endless OS and the other with Windows Home. The thing which I liked the most is the booting time. You hit the power button and it is ready in less than 10 seconds. Now, I will list down its pros and cons which will help you in deciding whether you should go for it or not.

Pros -
Looks - I must say it is a great looking laptop. Look premium and feels premium.
Full HD screen. Color reproduction is good. 
Build quality is good.
No heating issue while doing intense tasks.
Easily play heavy games like GTA5 or Asphalt airborne.

Cons
Glossy display - It becomes difficult in working in a well-lit environment. You can see your reflection in the screen.
Low brightness - As compared to other brands, brightness is on the lower side.
Weight - Inpite of being only 2.1 Kg, it feels heavier.
Battery backup - Lasts up to approx.  4 hours only on normal usage.
