New Acer Swift 5 Launched in Malaysia

At a launch event in Kuala Lumpur today, Acer Malaysia has launched the new Acer Swift 5. It is a lightweight productivity laptop that doesn’t skimp on performance.

Powered by the 10th Gen Intel Core CPU, the Acer Swift 5 weighs only 990g. The chassis is made from magnesium alloy, and surprisingly has an NVIDIA GeForce MX250 dGPU. However, some variants come with Intel UHD graphics / Intel Iris Plus graphics instead. You can have up to 16GBs of RAM but all variants will have 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD.

The Acer Swift 5 utilizes a 15-inch Full HD IPS display with a 170-degree viewing angle and 86.4% screen-to-body ratio. The battery life is said to be up to 11 hours, with roughly 4.5 hours of use in just 30-minutes of charging. For a deeper look into the specifications, check it out right below here:
