Acer has finally caught up to the OLED laptop competition by introducing the Acer Swift Edge laptop, which the company boldly claims is the world’s first 16-inch OLED laptop, as it weighs a mere 1.17kg and measures 12.95mm in height, very impressive indeed.
The Swift Edge employs the AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processors for power and Microsoft Pluton security processor that helps defend against attacks, the 16-inch OLED display pushes a 4K resolution at 3840×2400 pixels, making it a 16:10 aspect ratio display that’s similar to many modern 16-inch laptops.
In terms of storage, the Swift Edge with Ryzen 7 6800U processor will come with a 1TB PCIe Gen4 SSD and 16GB LPDDR5 RAM, while the Ryzen.5 6600U processor model will come with 512GB PCIe Gen4 SSD and 8GB LPDDR5 RAM.
Despite its ultra-slim chassis, Acer has managed to fit generous amount of ports such as a HDMI 2.1, two USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 ports, two USB-A ports and an audio jack, which pretty much eliminates the need for a dongle and something to commend about for a portable laptop.
Acer Malaysia has started selling the Swift Edge today, with the Ryzen 5 model retailing at RM5,299 and the Ryzen 7 model retailing at RM6,299, the laptop comes preinstalled with Office Home and Student 2021 and is covered by a 2-year warranty, with the first year being an International Travelers Warranty.
