The all-new Swift 5 focuses on performance and portability in a clean and modern design with a unibody CNC-machined chassis composed of Aerospace Grade Aluminum.

The Swift 5 features up to 12th Gen Intel Core i7 with Intel Iris Xe graphics packed into a sleek 1.2kg and 14.95mm height mist green colour chassis. Furthermore, up to 16GB dual-channel LPDDR5 memory and up to 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD storage offer users a smooth and fast computing experience.

The new Swift 5 includes a built-in fingerprint scanner on the power button for added security and convenience. The WQXGA touchscreen display is built with Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass and has thin bezels allowing for a screen-to-body ratio of 92.22%.

The backlit keyboard on the new Swift 5 has an air intake, which adds to the cooling system with an updated TwinAir dual-fan system with D6 heat pipes. Lastly, the OceanGlass touchpad on the laptop is constructed from ocean-bound plastic debris, creating a glass-like tactile sensation while facilitating multi-finger motions.

The laptop has been validated by Intel Evo to fulfil key experience criteria including quick wake from sleep, 10 hours of real-world battery life, and a 30-minute charge that offers more than 4 hours of battery life.

The new Swift 5 is now available at Acer eStore, official Shopee and Lazada stores, as well as authorised resellers, with prices beginning at RM4,699.

Customers who buy the new Swift 5 before 30 September 2022, will be eligible for a Sleeve Case, Urban Backpack, and RM120 in Touch n’ Go eWallet credit, with an extra RM100 discount available during the ongoing Acer Day roadshow through 7 August 2022.
