Just as we had speculated, Acer has announced upgrades to its Swift 3 and Swift 5 lineup.

"10th Gen Intel Core processors redefine what's possible in a modern laptop by bringing broad-scale AI to the PC for the first time, an all-new graphics architecture for a leap in performance with Iris Plus graphics, and integrated best-in-class connectivity with Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and Thunderbolt 3", said Chris Walker, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Mobility Client Platforms in the Client Computing Group, Intel. The graphics processing in Acer Swift 5 comes from the NVIDIA GeForce MX250GPU sitting inside it.

"The new ASUSPRO B9 is the world's lightest 14-inch business laptop at just 880 grams, created to provide a next-level usage experience for on-to-go business professionals".

According to Acer, the Swift 5 will be available in EMEA in September starting at Euro 899 (about RM4,157) and in North America in November with a starting price of United States dollars 899.99 (about RM3,778).
