The brand-new Swift Go 16 (SFG16-71) and Swift Go 14 (SFG14-71) combine the latest technologies and feature an OLED display with a 120 Hz refresh rate. The thin-and-light laptops showcase stunning displays that deliver vibrant, true-to-life images with 500-nit peak brightness, 100% DCI-P3 colour range and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500-certification. The Swift Go 14 presents a 14-inch 2.8K OLED display with 2880x1800 resolution, while the Swift Go 16 features a 16-inch 3.2K OLED display with 3200x2000 resolution.

The laptops’ backlit keyboards and OceanGlass™ touchpads further ensure a smooth and productive experience when scrolling.
Powered by 13th Gen Intel® Core™ H-series processors and verified as Intel® Evo™ platform laptops, the new Swift Go 16 and Swift Go 14 deliver top-notch performance and all-day battery life of more than 9.5 hours. 13th Gen Intel Core processors with the Intel® Movidius™ VPU have a dedicated AI engine that allows for premium video collaboration, uncompromised AI, and seamless integration. The notebooks also come with Intel® Unison™ to let users easily connect their PCs with Android or iOS devices for a universal, easy-to-use experience[[i]]. The new solution puts the PC at the centre of all activities and provides the freedom to work across operating systems for effortless file transfers, calling, messaging, and managing notifications, all on one screen.
Both laptops feature an upgraded TwinAir dual fan system, dual D6 copper heat pipes and an air-inlet keyboard that expels heat to maintain cool temperatures, boosting performance and reliability where you go. The sleek designs of their 14.9 mm aluminium unibody chassis are optimized with a 90% screen-to-body ratio and ultra-slim side bezels. The 14-inch model sports narrow 4.15 mm bezels, while only weighing less than 1.3 kg. The 16-inch version’s lean side frames measure at 4.2 mm and merely weigh less than 1.4 kg.

Its 1440p webcam with Temporal Noise Reduction (TNR) provides high-quality video feedback even in low-light conditions and pairs with Acer PurifiedVoice™ technology with AI noise reduction, resulting in crisp, clear images and audio for conferencing and classes. Fast and reliable Wi-Fi 6E keeps the laptops connected when it matters most. Both the Swift Go 16 and Swift Go 14 support up to 2 TB PCIe Gen 4 SSD and up to 16 GB LPDDR5 memory.

Acer Swift X 14 – Powerful Performance with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX GPUs
The Swift X 14 (SFX14-71) unleashes the potential of amateur and professional creators with its advanced CPU and discrete GPU. 13th Gen Intel® Core™ H-series processors [[i]] power the premium laptop and has the option for up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop GPUs. These powerful laptops are NVIDIA Studio-validated and are optimized with pre-installed NVIDIA Studio Drivers, enabling creators to do more by providing optimal support when collaborating with other creative applications. The Swift X 14’s advanced thermals include a larger fan that draws in more air to keep the internals cool, along with the dedicated air inlet keyboard and dual D6 copper heat pipes. The redesigned chassis makes room for a larger battery to provide a longer battery life of up to 9.5 hours for all-day productivity and performance.
The gorgeous 14-inch 2.8K OLED display with a 120 Hz frame refresh rate vividly highlights 100% of the DCI-P3 colour range and has VESA DisplayHDR™ TrueBlack 500 certification. The display’s 500-nit peak brightness and high-contrast rating bring impressive colours and images to life while ensuring text is crisp and clear throughout the viewing experience. Creators can collaborate seamlessly on the go with the 1440p QHD webcam and Acer PurifiedVoice™ with AI Noise Reduction. In addition, the latest ports, including dual USB Type-C and HDMI 2.1, and a MicroSD card reader keep creators connected to displays, printers, and other peripherals.
Acer Swift 14 – Stylish Premium Design
Sporting a new and improved design, the latest Swift 14 (SF14-71T) boasts a thin-and-light CNC-machined unibody chassis enveloped in gorgeous aerospace-grade aluminium that comes in either Mist Green or Steam Blue colourways. The diamond-cut edges and double anodized materials elevate the slender and high-class chassis that measures a mere 14.95 mm (0.59 inch) thin and weighs only 1.2 kg (2.64 lbs). The OceanGlass touchpad complements the laptop’s premium style while also contributing to Acer’s Earthion mission as the glass-like touchpad has been made from ocean-bound plastic waste.
The Swift 14 laptop looks good inside and out as it houses up to 13th Gen Intel Core H-series processors and is Intel Evo-verified while offering more than 9.5 hours[[i]] of battery life. The notebooks are also integrated with Intel Unison allowing users to collaborate across different operating systems on the most vital productivity functions. The Swift 14’s impressive thermal solutions feature an air inlet design that pairs with Acer’s TwinAir dual-fan system and D6 copper heat pipes to increase airflow that keeps the systems cool.
The Acer Swift 14 offers two gorgeous 14-inch touchscreen display options – either WQXGA (2560x1600) or WUXGA (1920x1200) that are both covered with durable Antimicrobial Corning® Gorilla® Glass[[ii]] to boost durability, provide scratch resistance, and prevent the growth of stain- and odour-causing bacteria. Hybrid employees, remote workers and students on the go will enjoy conferences, classes, and video chats with the Swift 14’s 1440p QHD webcam with TNR technology, Acer PurifiedVoice and dual speakers enhanced with DTS® Audio. User logins are made easier without sacrificing security with Windows Hello and the integrated fingerprint reader, while the two USB Type-C Thunderbolt™ 4 ports and HDMI 2.1 port provide a convenient connection to peripherals.
