88.6% Acer Swift Edge 16 Ryzen 7 7840U laptop review: Zen 4 CPU and 3.2K 120 Hz OLED boost | Notebookcheck
The Acer Swift Edge 16 is one of the lightest 16-inch laptops in the market right now with the new Ryzen 7 7840U. There's no doubt that its CPU and 120 Hz OLED display are both impressive, but weaknesses elsewhere on the model shouldn't be ignored.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
