Acer just unveiled a whole set of different devices in an event in New York. Among them is the extremely light Swift 5, a 15-inch laptop weighing less than a kilogram.
The Swift 5 comes equipped with a 15.6-inch FHD IPS touch display, Intel’s 8th generation processors, up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM, up to a 1TB SSD, and Windows 10.
For I/O, we have a USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 2 port, two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, an HDMI port, and an SD Card reader.
The notebook will come in different configurations depending on the region. So, we’ll just have to wait and see what Acer Philippines will bring to our shores. Pricing and availability will also vary.
