ACER Swift 5 Hands-on: The Lightest 15-inch Notebook In The World
Source: Unbox English
Powering the notebook is an 8th-gen Intel Core processor – which processor ultimately depends on how much you want to spend. You can also stuff in up to 1TB of SSD storage and up to 16GB of RAM inside, though again it depends on the configuration and how much coin you want to drop.
