Besides the 14-inch Acer Swift 3, we will also get a new larger 15.6-inch model. Both laptops are equipped with a Full HD (1920x1080 pixels) IPS display as well as Intel Core processors. Some SKUs will be shipped with optional Nvidia GPUs. The other specs include PCIe SSDs with a capacity of up to 512 GB, and the 15-inch model also gets an additional 1 TB HDD. Both notebooks will ship with up to 8 GB RAM, 802.11ac Wi-Fi (2x2) as well as a USB 3.1 Type-C port.

The Acer Swift 1 is the entry-level model for the ultra-slim series at just 15 mm and a weight of 1300 grams. The core components are Intel Celeron or Pentium processors, either with eMMC or SSD storage (up to 256 GB). The display of the Swift 1 is a 13.3-inch Full HD panel based on the IPS technology.

Both devices should arrive in June with starting prices of USD $329 for the Swift 1 and USD $599 for the Swift 3.

I grew up with modern consumer electronics and my first computer was a Commodore C64, which encouraged my interest in building my own systems. I started working as a review editor for Notebookcheck during my dual studies at Siemens. Currently, I am mainly responsible for dealing with business laptops and mobile workstations. It’s a great experience to be able to review the latest devices and technologies and then compare them with each other.
