Aspiring notebook owners looking to add something light to their line-up are certainly spoilt for choice of late as Acer has just unveiled their latest refresh of their Swift 5 ultraportable that weighs under 1KG while packing the new 11th generation Intel Core processors.
Details as to its exact specifications are scarce at this point in time but Acer has shared just how slim and light the new Swift 5 will be. Relying on the use of the relatively new magnesium-lithium alloy for weight savings, the Swift 5 is just 14.95mm thin while also weighing under 1kg and packing your choice of two colour schemes that they’ve dubbed as mist green or safari gold..
The notebook itself has a slim 14-inch 1080P touchscreen display with a 90% screen-to-body ratio with an antimicrobial coating, will integrate the next generation Intel Core processors based on Intel’s new Xe architecture and will have the option of integrating NVIDIA GeForce MX350 GPUs along with up to 1TB SSDs and 16GB RAM. The older Swift 5 has am 86.4% screen-to-body ratio while retaining Intel 10th Gen CPUs.
Under the hood, the Acer Swift 5 is powered by a 56Wh battery that allows for 4 hours of use with just a 30 minute charge-time.
