Acer has introduced its new lineup of laptops, monitors and peripherals at this year’s IFA 2018 conference in Berlin, including a radically improved Acer Swift 5, which the company claims is the world’s lightest 15-inch notebook. Designed for discerning customers who want an envy-inducingPC, the Swift 5 delivers exceptional performance in an elegant chassis that weighs less than one kilogram (990 g/2.2 pounds).
The Swift 5 (SF515-51T) is powered by the latest 8th Generation Intel™ Core™ i7-8565U and Core i5-8265U processors to deliver responsive performance and up to 10 hours of battery life for day-to-night productivity. Running Windows 10, the new Swift 5 is a large-screen productivity powerhouse.
“Acer is consistently developing new ways to engineer thin-and-light chassis designs that house the latest technology with stellar features,” said Jerry Hou, General Manager, Consumer Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. at the inauguration program recently in Berlin.
The Swift 5’s ground-breaking design features top and bottom covers that are constructed from magnesium-lithium alloy for a thinner design while ensuring durability without bending or twisting. The magnesium-aluminum alloy palm rest provides an extra sturdy base when using the keyboard and trackpad. The slim chassis measures only 15.9mm (0.63inches) thin, yet makes room for a fingerprint reader that supports Windows Helloso customers can log in to their accounts faster and keep their device more secure.
New Swift 3 models have slim designs and bezels in an array of options with 13.3-inch and 14-inch displays, the latest 8th Gen Intel Core processors and a configuration with built-in 4G LTE connectivity on the go.
While the Acer Swift 5 is arguably the most exciting laptop Acer showed off at IFA, the company also announced a wide range of new laptops that will be coming our way soon.
The Acer Swift 5 (SF514-53T) is the 14-inch version of the Swift 5, and is also incredibly thin and light, with the same durable magnesium-lithium alloy design, a 14-inch 1080p display and 8th-generation Intel Core processors.
