Correction: The RM3,499 Swift 5 with 256GB SSD comes with only 4GB of RAM and not 8GB as initially reported. The error is regretted, and has been fixed.
Acer has finally announced the arrival of the Acer Swift 5 Ultrabook in Malaysia. The mid-range productivity machine will be available in two storage options at very competitive prices.
The spiritual successor to the popular Aspire S13 notebook, the Acer Swift 5 retains the classy design but is updated with the latest hardware. It runs on a 7th-gen Intel Core i5-7200U processor with either 4GB or 8GB of RAM. Its 14-inch Full HD IPS display has narrow bezels, allowing it to be fitted into a 13.3″ metal chassis.
It’s also got 2 USB 3.0 ports, and one USB Type C port (though it does not charge the laptop). There’s also a HDMI port, headphone jack, and a fingerprint reader that works with Windows Hello.
Finally, the Acer Swift 5 will come in two storage options in Malaysia. The 4GB RAM/256GB SSD variant will retail for RM3,499, while the 8GBRAM/512GB SSD option will be sold at RM4,499 – one of the lowest we’ve seen in Malaysia so far. Both variants of the Swift 5 will be available in two colours: Obsidian Black and Pearl White.
