The Event

As part of Global Goals Week, the Skoll Foundation and the United Nations Foundation are pleased to present We the Future: Accelerating Sustainable Development Solutions on September 21, 2017 at TED Theater in New York.
The Sustainable Development Goals, created in partnership with individuals around the world and adopted by world leaders at the United Nations, present a bold vision for the future: a world without poverty or hunger, in which all people have access to healthcare, education and economic opportunity, and where thriving ecosystems are protected. The 17 goals are integrated and interdependent, spanning economic, social, and environmental imperatives.
Incremental change will not manifest this new world by 2030. Such a shift requires deep, systemic change. As global leaders gather for the 72nd Session of the UN General Assembly in September, this is the moment to come together to share models that are transforming the way we approach the goals and equipping local and global leaders across sectors to accelerate achievement of the SDGs.




Together with innovators from around the globe, we will showcase and discuss bold models of systemic change that have been proven and applied on a local, regional, and global scale. A curated audience of social entrepreneurs, corporate pioneers, government innovators, artistic geniuses, and others will explore how we can learn from, strengthen, and scale the approaches that are working to create a world of sustainable peace and prosperity.

acer swift 1 review

December 1, 2020 by 0

It runs impressively well for such a thin machine, and sports a decent keyboard, touchpad, and webcam. The new Acer Swift 5, released in late 2019, is just over two pounds. Working outside on a sunny day is tricky on the Acer Swift 1, though the anti-glare coating does mean that any primary light sources reflected off the display won’t cause discomfort. Windows Hello-compatible fingerprint reader. It has a proper UK layout, with a large enter key and a pound symbol, and the keys are nicely spaced out. Get Support. Again, for the most part, this is no big deal, as such speeds are OK for saving, loading, and transferring Word documents, but for anything more intensive than that, expect things to move slowly. Our only complaint comes in the lower right corner, where half-sized cursor arrows are crowded together with half-sized Page Up and Page Down keys (the latter two pair with the Fn key for Home and End). Ideally, you want a display to be able to give you top brightness of 300 nits so it can cope with a variety of lighting conditions. Acer Swift 1 design – Lightweight but not light on ports. Since we regularly describe machines like the HP Stream ($199.99 at HP) and the Lenovo Miix 320 ($599.77 at Amazon) detachable, which hover around the 1,500-point level, as adequate for Microsoft Office 365 or Google Office, it's clear the Swift 1 is just fine for the likes of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Formerly editor-in-chief of Home Office Computing, Eric Grevstad is a contributing editor for PCMag, where he earlier served as lead laptop analyst. There’s hardly any low end coming out here, to the point where it failed my Master Of Puppets test – if you can’t hear the bass guitar when it kicks in at 0:30, or the bass is so distorted it no longer resembles a bass guitar (I’m looking at you, Asus ROG Strix GL504 Hero II), a laptop fails the test. This, combined with the lack of dedicated graphics and the display’s low colour space coverage, means that the Acer Swift 1 isn’t suited to the most basic photo editing tasks. The six are so small and close that hitting them accurately requires fingertip precision; we found moving the cursor back a word with Ctrl+Left Arrow, a full-sized key immediately next to a half-sized key, more trouble than it was worth. Note that Acer said the Swift 5 is the lightest 14-inch with the option for a discrete Nvidia graphics card, specifically the GeForce MX250. Small, cramped cursor control and arrow keys. This is not likely to be a problem, unless you’re watching something on Netflix with two other people. In short, if you want to listen to music while working, you’d be best off sticking with headphones. Not only was the colour temperature I recorded (7449K vs the 6500K ideal) on the blue side, meaning that images can look a little cold, colour space coverage was also low. Acer Swift 1 (SF114-32)’s display has a budget IPS panel (BOE NV140FHM-N48) with a Full HD resolution, good contrast ratio, comfortable viewing angles, and somewhat adequate default settings. The Acer Swift 1 could be right up your street. If you haven't noticed, the Acer Swift 1 is something of a landmark—an ultrathin and light mix of productivity and style that costs less than one-third what Apple's still charging for the MacBook Air. With the Swift 1 ($329), Acer offers the executive look of the Dell XPS 13 or the LG Gram 13 for a fraction of the price, delivering status-symbol features led by a genuine 13.3-inch in-plane switching (IPS) display with full HD resolution. We use industry standard tests in order to compare features properly. USB-C port. Notebook - Intel Pentium Silver N5030 Gemini Lake, 14" IPS matný 1920 × 1080, RAM 8GB DDR4, Intel HD Graphics, SSD 256GB, podsvícená klávesnice, USB 3.2 Gen 1, USB-C, čtečka otisků prstů, WiFi 6, 48 Wh baterie, Windows 10 Home (SF114-33-P0JZ) The latest Intel ® Pentium ® Silver Processor 1 keeps everything running at optimum speeds while the fan-less design keeps noises to a minimum for the perfect working environment. MacBook Pro vs. MacBook Air: Which 13-Inch Apple Laptop Is Best for 2020? Bluetooth and 802.11ac Wi-Fi are standard. Using an X-Rite i1 Display Pro colorimeter and DisplayCAL 3, I recorded maximum brightness of 282.5 nits and a black level of 0.26 nits, adding up to a contrast ratio of 1070:1. The SSD on the model I reviewed was a 256GB Kingston RBUSNS8154P3256GJ1, about 240GB of which is available to the user. We may earn a commission if you click a deal and buy an item. That’s not as much of an issue as their size and position on the board, but, personally, I’d have preferred four dedicated nav keys here. While it’s increasingly common to see fingerprint scanners on laptops these days, it’s rare to see them on a laptop at this price point, so its inclusion here is a nice plus. Acer offers an otherwise identical Swift 1 model with 128GB of flash, but its $70 higher price strikes us as reason to buy an SD card instead. It’s also a low score for a lightweight notebook, especially one with such an undemanding processor. Here is the Acer Swift 1 SF114-31 configuration sent to TechRadar for review: CPU: 1.6GHz Intel Pentium N3710 (quad-core, 2MB cache, up to 2.56GHz burst frequency) Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 405 Acer Swift 1 Safari Gold celokovový. Unless your budget tops out at $200, you owe it to yourself to check out our new favorite entry-level ultraportable. Liked: Lightweight aluminum chassis, Long battery life, Wide range of ports, Decent webcam Disliked: Dim, dull display, A few build-quality quirks Acer's Swift 1 is a surprisingly strong answer, a little short on storage but with a slim build and a 1080p IPS display. Despite the low price, Acer has included all but the kitchen sink here, packing in three Type-A USB ports (the traditional, rectangular kind) and one Type-C USB port (the newer, oval-shaped kind), as well as an HDMI 2.0 port, a full-sized SD card reader, along with the usual 3.5mm jack for headphones, a Kensington lock slot, and a port for the AC adapter. The only system in our charts to manage double-digit frame rates at modest quality settings was our Editors' Choice low-cost full-sized laptop, the Acer Aspire E 15 ($999.00 at Amazon) , which gives you a more potent Core i3 CPU (and plenty of storage) for just $20 more than the Swift 1—but if you've read this far, you probably know whether you want an ultrabook or a desktop replacement. So Acer Swift 3, while being a pricier option, tends to get more favorable ⭐ reviews than the $350 Acer Aspire 1, as seen on the chart below. Secondly, the plastic bezel framing the 14-inch screen measures 6.3mm at the sides, which, while a little bigger than the bezels of high-end ultrabooks like last year’s Asus ZenBook 14 Pro (3mm) and the new Dell XPS 13 (4mm), is still on the thin side and makes the Acer Swift 1 look slick, thanks to the fact that it draws attention to the big 14-inch Full HD display. While the Acer Swift 1 is an affordable laptop, it looks and feels a lot more premium than its £500 price tag might suggest. The buttonless touchpad glides smoothly and takes just the right amount of pressure to produce a gentle click. While there’s no dedicated Ethernet port, you can pick up USB-C-to-Ethernet adapters for not very much these days. Though small, the latter is of the more convenient press-your-finger rather than the older swipe-your-finger type. The Pentium N4200 is an economy CPU with an impressive number of cores (four) and an unimpressive clock speed (1.1GHz, though it can accelerate to 2.5GHz for brief spurts). © 1996-2020 Ziff Davis, LLC.
