If you prioritize a higher resolution display and a slightly lighter device, the Acer Swift Edge 16 is a good choice. However, the Samsung Galaxy Book3 360 offers versatility with its 2-in-1 convertible feature, which means you can use it as both a laptop and a tablet. While the Acer has a more powerful AMD processor, which is beneficial for demanding tasks, the Samsung is equipped with an Intel processor that provides good performance for general use and has a slight edge in battery capacity. If budget is a concern, the Samsung tends to be less expensive, but if you need stronger performance and, prefer an AMD CPU, the Acer may justify the extra cost. Keep in mind the Samsung will also provide additional tablet functionality that the Acer lacks. Give Feedback

PCWorld

Matthew S. Smith | October 2023
"The Acer Swift Edge 16 is a solid super thin-and-light that pairs a large, gorgeous 16-inch display with portable design that rivals the weight of LG’s superlight Gram 16. Remarkably, Acer achieves this at a lower price point without sacrificing performance. Boring design and disappointing battery life hold the laptop back from stardom, but its rivals frequently suffer in these areas, too. That makes the Swift Edge 16 an alluring value pick."

Trusted Reviews

Adam Speight | July 2023
"The Samsung Galaxy Book 3 360 isn’t a laptop that the Korean manufacturer has shouted from the rooftops about, and it seems to have gotten little attention from anywhere. But, it is absolutely a laptop worth paying attention to. Compared to higher-priced devices, like the Dell XPS 13 (2022) and Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED (2023), it manages to offer a similar day-to-day experience despite the price difference. It’s really hard to justify the extra cash unless a boosted display is a requirement of yours."
