Acer’s new Swift laptops include Intel’s 11th Gen processors

New chips in a familiar

Curated via Twitter from The Verge’s twitter account….

The Swift 5 can come with either a Core i5 or Core i7 processor, and Acer claims it provides 17 hours of battery life (based on synthetic benchmarks, so real-world use will probably be lower).

Acer has announced new Swift 3 and Swift 5 laptops, which include Intel’s 11th Gen “Tiger Lake” processors.

Acer says it’s still working on getting the Swift 3 verified as well.

The chassis itself is pretty familiar — Acer has carried over the fold-under hinge design that elevates the keyboard deck when the screen is open, giving the vents more room to circulate air (and conveniently hiding a chunk of the bottom bezel).

Systems that earn this badge are supposed to deliver nine or more hours of “real-world” battery life, have less than a second of wake time, fast charging, Wi-Fi 6, and Thunderbolt 4, among other requirements.
