    I'm currently looking for a new laptop, just for use around the home, general use, nothing fancy, no gaming etc.

    I'm curerntly looking at either the Acer Swift 5 Ultra-Thin | SF514-51 or the Acer Swift 3 Ultra-Thin | SF314-52

    Is there a view on what one is better, they appear very similar spec to me?
