Acer today announced the new Swift 5 notebook featuring ultra-narrow bezels. Acer also claimed that this new Swift 5 is the world’s thinnest 15-inch laptop and it weighs less than 1kg, making it ideal for people who travel a lot. Acer Swift 5 features a Full HD IPS touchscreen with bezels measuring just 5.87 mm, with 87.6% screen-to-body ratio, this laptop will offer great viewing experience.

The Swift 5 is powered by latest Intel 8th gen processors, up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 1TB of SSD storage. It supports wireless gigabit speeds, thanks to the new Intel Wireless-AC 9560 offering 2×2 802.11ac for ultra-fast streaming, sharing, conferencing, and gaming experiences. It comes with an USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 2 port (10 Gbit/s data transfer, supporting power delivery and display output), two USB 3.1 Type-A ports (one with power-off charging functionality), an HDMI port, and an SD card reader.

Acer has also packed this laptop with Color Intelligence technology, which dynamically adjusts gamma and saturation in real-time, optimizing screen color and brightness without clipping or over saturation. Acer’s BluelightShield technology adjusts screen’s blue-light emission over extended periods of use.

Acer didn’t reveal any information about the pricing and availability of this laptop at today’s event.
