In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.

Health-Guard

Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

Acer Swift 5 Pro (SF514-55 / SF514-55GT / SF514-55TA) in-depth review

One of the lightest 14-inch notebooks on the market just got updated. It is the Acer Swift 5 Pro, and the new model number is SF514-55(GT). Naturally, if it has a G - it has a dedicated GPU. Interestingly, it features the Core i7-1165G7, the latest from Intel, and the Blue company states that their brand new Iris Xe Graphics G7 might be capable of performing better than the GeForce MX350. And guess what has Acer put inside of the Swift 5 this year... the MX350, itself. So, it will be particularly interesting to see if we get a better performance in games and productivity if we just disa[...]
