Acer announced an update to its Acer Swift 5 laptop at IFA 2019. Both the notebooks are powered by 10 Gen Intel Core processors and Microsoft Windows 10. The graphics processing in Acer Swift 5 comes from the NVIDIA GeForce MX250GPU sitting inside it.

The new notebook uses a combination of magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminium alloys for greater weight reduction.

"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".

The Swift 5 is based on Intel's 10 Generation Core processor codenamed Ice Lake with up to four cores that is accompanied by NVIDIA's discrete GeForce MX 250 discrete GPU. The screen features a three-side narrow bezel with a high screen-to-body ratio of 86.4 per cent.

We begin first with the Acer Swift 5 which is set for availability later in September starting at $900. Users can login via a touch of the built-in fingerprint reader through Windows Hello for easy and more secure access. It also comes equipped with a brand-new 10th Generation Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor; up to 512 GB of PCIe storage, and it touts a whopping twelve and a half hours of battery life. It even supports fast charge and Acer claims you can get up to 4.5 hours of usage from a quick 30-minute charge.

The Acer Swift 5 Ultrabook comes with a lightweight design that weighs just 990gms in total which is one of the lightest in the market. For further color enhancement the Swift 3 also includes Acer Color Intelligence™ and Acer ExaColor Technology for enhanced, vivid images. It is available with 27-inch, 24-inch, and 22-inch Full HD IPS screen options, all powered by 10Gen Intel Core processors and an optional discrete NVIDIA MX130 GPU. It will also be available in China in Q3 starting at RMB 7,499.

Taiwanese electronics and PC maker Acer today launched two upgraded variants of its popular Acer Swift and Aspire all-in-one desktop ranges. Up to 16 GB RAM and up to a 512 GB PCI NVMe SSD can be configured. Stated battery life is for comparison goal only. Battery life test configuration: 10th Gen IntelCorei5, NVIDIAGeForceMX250, FHD, SSD only, 16GB of LPDDR4X memory.
