Let’s Check Out These Bad Boys!
Acer Swift 5
The new Acer Swift 5 is all about performance and portability in a sleek and contemporary design. Its exterior offers a classy look courtesy of a unibody CNC-machined chassis made of Aerospace Grade Aluminum.
Packed into a svelte 1.2kg and 14.95mm tall mist green colour body is up to 12th Gen Intel Core i7 and Intel Iris Xe graphics that provide for powerful performance. Meanwhile, up to 16GB dual-channel LPDDR5 memory and up to 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD storage ensure smooth and quick computing experience even with multiple applications opened simultaneously. For security and convenience, the new Acer Swift 5 features a built-in fingerprint reader on the power button.
The WQXGA touchscreen display is made with Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass to protect touch surfaces and keep them clean. Viewing real estate is maximized by thin bezels on all four sides allowing for a screen-to-body ratio of 92.22%.
The new Acer Swift 5’s backlit keyboard features an air inlet, which adds to the cooling system of an upgraded TwinAir dual-fan system with D6 heat pipes. Together, these further increase the airflow and thermal efficiency to support its powerful hardware.
