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 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 X (SFX16-51G) in-depth review

Not a long time ago we tested the Acer Swift X. It was a surprisingly powerful device, that had its hardware bunched up in a 14-inch chassis. Well, today, we were able to get the 16-inch version of this notebook. However, instead of an AMD ULV processor, it comes paired with a 35W Tiger Lake CPU from Intel.This immediately means that the laptop won't be perfect for gaming, but it will be really suitable for content creation or photo editing. In fact, it can also be configured with a 40W RTX 3050 Ti.Since the 16-inch form factor is becoming a new normal, we don't think it's a groundbre[...]


  • 16.1-inch screen with 98% of sRGB coverage and accurate colors (when our Gaming and Web design profile is present)
  • No PWM
  • Up to 13 hours of Web browsing on battery
  • An all-metal built with a lid leverage system
  • Fingerprint reader
  • Supports ray tracing
  • Wi-Fi 6, and dual M.2 SSD support


  • Soldered memory
  • No SD card reader
  • The 90W charger is a bottleneck
