I've done my homework and started using elementary OS on my Acer Swift 3

  1. the wifi connectivity is terrible, windows gave me constant stable connection, where elementary OS fails to do that

    • Should i use Ndiswrapper with default intel drivers from my acer support site or is there any other solution for faster and better connection, current Kernel driver in use: iwlwifi
  2. the screen is "not so smooth" as before, should i try and use oibaf?

  3. is TLP worth it?

My specs:

  • Intel Core i5 8250u
  • GPU: Intel UHD Graphics 62 | no dGPU (dedicated GPU)
  • 8gb RAM

I don't know about the other things you asked but TLP is worth it. Just remember when you install TLP to go into terminal and type

sudo systemctl enable tlp

sudo systemctl start tlp
