Style, power and lightweight portability – these are the pillars that the world was introduced to when the Acer Swift series took the world by storm at the Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) in 2016. Fast forward to the most recent IFA of 2019, the most recent
Acer Swift 5 was announced and has now launched in Malaysia!
Staying true to the staple of being an edgy ultraportable laptop, the Swift 5 clocks in at a remarkable 990 grams. The lack of weight is far from a telltale to what this laptop packs in substance, however.
Powered by the 10th Gen Intel Core Processor and up to NVIDIA GeForce MX250; the Swift 5 is a depiction of a harmonious bridge between minimalistic design and superior performance. It is worth noting that this same model of laptop had been nominated among two other Acer models for CES Innovation Award. This nomination was based on measures of innovation, engineering qualities, aesthetics and design in categories of computer hardware, components, peripherals and accessories.
Johnson Seet, Director of Consumer Business, Product and Marketing of Acer Malaysia has said that “The Acer Swift 5 has been a long time favourite among Malaysians and we are proud to be able to bring an improved, sleeker, portable and powerful laptop to Malaysians. The new Acer Swift 5 will not only be convenient for everyone to travel around with, but it would also fit with the minimalist style while being highly productive.”
In conjunction with the CES Innovation Award nomination and its long awaited arrival in Malaysia, the Swift 5 now comes pre-installed with a lifetime licensed Microsoft Home and Student 2019 that is worth RM529! Acer fans, the time could not be more opportune to pick up a Swift 5 now.
As previously stipulated, the Acer Swift 5 may be lightweight in appearance, but its delivery in performance is just the opposite. Operating as a fully functional 14 Inch Full HD laptop, the Swift 5 has a fully functional IPS touchscreen that champions a screen to body ratio of 86.4% alongside an ultra-narrow three-sided bezel of only 3.97mm. What this means for the consumer is that the laptop’s display will be far more rewarding than what it may appear to be now.
With regards to performance durability, Jeffrey Lai, Senior Product Manager of Acer Malaysia claims that the Swift 5 will be able to operate on an average of 11 hours depending on the nature of usage and that a mere 30-minute charge will be able to supply 4.5 hours of laptop use. Features like these would be invaluable to the ever moving market that is primarily drawn to the seamlessness of the Swift Series laptops.
For the users that are heavy on graphic power, the Acer Swift 5 can opt for the Intel Core i5 variant with NVIDIA GeForce MX250, 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM support and 512GB SSD at just RM3,999. Meanwhile, the Acer Swift 5 of Intel Core i7 processor with Intel Iris Plus Graphics, 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM support and 512GB SSD is priced at RM4,699.
Meanwhile, the Intel Core i5 processor variant with Intel UHD Graphics, comes with 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM support and 512GB SSD is priced at RM3,699. The new Acer Swift 5 is available immediately at all Acer Concept Stores and Acer Official Online Stores as well as selected Acer Official Resellers.

Essentially, the Acer Swift Series is at the peak of its glory. With the advent of the Swift 5 on Malaysian shores, consumers no longer have to compromise between minimalism and the masterful performance of otherwise more literally heavyweight laptops. Begin your transition into a world of seamlessness – one swift, sleek click at a time.
