Acer Swift 5: The Fastest of them All

Acer Swift 5: The Fastest of them All

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.

Additionally, purchasers of select Acer models worth RM3,000 to RM5,399 before 31 December 2019 will be able to redeem either a Predator waterproof bag or a Predator Cestus 310 gaming mouse or Acer E300 true harmony earphones. The free gifts can be redeemed here.

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.

ConceptD: A Creator’s New One-Stop-Everything

ConceptD: A Creator’s New One-Stop-Everything

In the wake of an increasingly digital age, there remains a large vacuum to be filled in the area of creativity. The demand created from the cries for effective and efficient creative tools has brought about a resurgence for quality craftsmanship. Pioneers from all over have scrambled to compete in becoming the next sensational mainstay.

ConceptD, a new breed of superior computers let creators be creators. This range comprises of computer devices recently introduced by tech giant, Acer; conceptualised amidst the large user database that the brand has of heavy duty gamers that have been utilising professional creative applications. To put it simply, ConceptD is a class for the creative aficionados that caters workstation-standard performance but with the finesse of cooler and more subtle systems.

To touch slightly on some of the specifications, the ConceptD machines operate at a noise level of below 40 decibels while rendering – basically so inconspicuous that you would be a ninja in even a library. ConceptD is also steadfast on delivering impeccable colour accuracy; equipped with up to 100% Adobe RGB colour gamut, 4K IPS Pantone certification and a colour differentiation measurement of less than 1% (Delta-E).

As said by Chan Weng Hong, the General Manager of Products, Sales and Marketing at Acer Sales & Services Sdn Bhd said, “ConceptD devices are designed for creative needs as the high-performance processors and graphics cards can handle extreme workloads yet stay quiet. The power-packed performance is presented in a minimal design to inspire creators to let their creative juices flow freely.” At a mere overlook of the general features present in ConceptD, the words of Mr Chan are already beginning to ring true.

ConceptD laptops provide between the ranges of entry levels to outright ultimate creative tools. The flagship model is the ConceptD 9 Pro. A model very much in the vein of modernity; its display is mounted on an Ezel Aero Hinge that comprises of two arms that can rotate the screen somewhat acrobatically in a full flip. The 17.3-inch display is also thoroughly touchscreen optimised with a maximum brightness of 400 nits (twice the amount of an average laptop at 200 nits). 


Other laptops in the ConceptD series include the ConceptD 5 Pro and ConceptD7 Pro that are respectively far thinner and lighter, further emphasising on the performance prowess that is made available on the go. Additionally, all the ConceptD Pro laptops come equipped with advanced graphic processing powered by the NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics card that and features Intel Core ™ i7-9750H.

While many desktop counterparts lack in style and nimbleness, the ConceptD 500, its flagship desktop model, denounces that archetype with its sleek and refreshing design. The CPU unit comes in a pristine white that is topped with a maple coloured wood grain-look top panel. Very much out of the conventional, ConceptD has managed to bridge the gap between two very opposing elements – bringing a touch of nature and natural to something that is very much synthetic in essence. 

One thing to watch out for however, is that with great capability comes great cost. The ConceptD models are available from as low as RM3,399 to as high as an exorbitant RM18,999. Rest assured, however, that you get what you pay for and quality is more than guaranteed.

In a nutshell, Acer has graced the world with ConceptD as an answer to the cries of creators worldwide, but the versatile computers are far from limited to one area of performance. Boasting a modern touch to its design as well as impeccable performance cues, this range of computers is definitely one to take the world by storm and revolutionise the reality of creating on the go.

Available now in Malaysia, make your way over to your nearest Acer Concept Store that listed in Table below to get a feel (and maybe your hands after) on one of the many eye catching ConceptD 7, desktop and monitors!

Scholarship & Sponsorship Hub (SSHub), changing lives for the better

Most youths are eager to gain an education after secondary school in hope of a better future, however lack of appropriate guidance, insufficient support, and financial need are some of the reasons why achieving this dream might be difficult for them. Malaysians know higher education is the key to a better future, but many among the B40 and M40 households face challenges to provide this opportunity for their children. Although many of them managed to obtain scholarships and student loans, they still faced financial constraints to manage their day-to-day living expenses and accommodation cost. Majority of parents still struggle to pay the education fees and provide a decent living for their university/college children.

Innovating fresh ideas and inspiring creativity for all generations

Innovating fresh ideas and inspiring creativity for all generations

It’s about how you want to experience life and connect with your surroundings

People from different generations yearn for different living spaces that suit their lifestyles. Everyone has his or her own set of preferences. A house that looks nice on the outside may just fall short of one’s expectations. 

For EcoWorld, creating a desired living environment calls for a future-proof approach to township planning beyond just a roof above our heads. It is about creating homes, places and spaces that can accommodate different lifestyles and communities for all generations

The award-winning developer, with six years of solid track record of innovating living and working spaces, redefines urbanism with attention-to-detail connection between the environment we live in and things surrounding it. 

What does “For Generations” constitute?

A comfortable and inspiring living environment for all ages has to be multifaceted and extraordinary at the same time – such is the essence of the “For Generations” concept championed by EcoWorld – a shining example of how a development with foresight should take shape. 

For EcoWorld, it is about how we want to experience life and how we want to connect with the people and everything around us. We crave engaging experiences with not only our family and friends, but also our surroundings.

The precursor to the defined connection is a holistic township that can fulfil the desires of its residents – a place they can truly call home. Call it a sustainable development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future generations.

It boils down to creating a liveable space with improved quality of life where everything we see or feel is relevant to what we live for. This is how developers must strive to win the hearts and minds of consumers.

The “For Generations” credo stands for a sustainable living that is both structurally and spiritually rich. It manifests a healthy ecosystem that promotes communal integration by blending different lifestyles of people from different generations with different living spaces at their disposal.

Put it simply, it is all about an environment that inspires our everyday lives, everywhere and every time.

Creating a liveable space for all generations

It doesn’t matter whether you were born in the 80s, 90s, or in the new millennium, whether you belong to Gen X, Y or Z, everyone goes through a different set of experiences, lifestyles, preferences and expectations. 

Therefore, EcoWorld has even delved deep into the mindset of every inhabitant and identified 14 different generations who look at life with different perspectives, given their different personalities and hobbies. For them, different living spaces inspire different passions. 

The 14 different generations and what they are looking for:  

The Zen Generation – the ones who seek to free their minds and completely relax their body and soul in a tranquil outdoor family area made perfect for a meditation retreat.

The Explorer Generation – the curious young minds who love nature and adventure in a township graced with fascinating parks and gardens of beautiful wonders for them to explore.

The Ever Learner Generation – those who believe that you are never too old to learn new things, there is never a dull moment and always something exciting to discover at the EcoWorld Life Space.

The Culinary Generation – the ones who are passionate about the culinary arts and wish for a spacious dream kitchen to whip up sumptuous meals for their loved ones and create everlasting memories.

The Trend Seeker Generation – the trend seekers who appreciate communal spaces such as EcoWorld Labs that serve as a vibrant platform to express their creativity.

The Minimalist Generation – the ones who wish to live clutter-free in living spaces designed with ample room for serenity and simplicity.

The Digital Nomad Generation – people who work ‘on the go’ and constantly seek out energising environments that inspire creative ideas.

The Gym Rat Generation – the ones who live for a good workout, utilising the well-equipped communal gymnasium to elevate their fitness levels.

The Nature Friendly Generation – nature lovers who dream of a personal home garden as an ideal little green world for themselves to nurture their green fingers.

The Pet Lover Generation – the pet-loving people who demand a pet-friendly environment to ensure that their fur kids are part of the family and community, where living with happy pets brings a happy life.

The Artistic Generation – people who appreciate the gifted and inspiring sculptures in a development, which help stimulate their artistic senses for the creation of their next masterpiece.

The Bold Creator Generation – the game changers who thrive on the Intelligent Space Concept found in EcoWorld’s business parks to bring their visionary ideas to life.

The #POTD Generation – the ones who embrace an active social media lifestyle by turning ‘moments’ into ‘memories’ with impressive posts of the many gorgeous Instagrammable spots.

The Collector Generation – the ones who love collecting rare finds as a hobby and displaying them in spacious living spaces like a private gallery.

Healthy ecosystem for all lifestyles

Essentially, the “For Generations” concept takes an in-depth look at life with a seamless ‘connection’ in mind. It goes beyond wired connectivity for sure. It’s about how you connect with your neighbours, your community, and even your own hobbies – in a connected environment that paints the true meaning of a desired future – for all generations. 

All EcoWorld developments bear the hallmarks of such credentials as evidenced by Brydon, Cora, Hazelton, Regent Garden and Rosé

Its Zen-inspired garden homes, semi-dees and bungalows come with exclusive clubhouse access, top-notch security and charming back lane gardens. Its lifestyle hub – Ardence Labs – makes entertaining and dining a breeze. Life at Cora is never dull.

The ‘Design to Own’ concept of Regent Garden in Eco Grandeur, Puncak Alam allows you the freedom and flexibility to customise your dream home. At Regent Garden, you get a chance to stand out from the crowd.

ROSÉ

Inspired by the best of contemporary and classic French architecture, Rosé units come with a 10ft private garden that perfectly complements its generous 20ft back lane gardens.

It’s about how you want to experience life

EcoWorld developments connect what you love and how you want to live. Again, it’s about how you want to experience life. Every meticulously planned and crafted product is about you. There is something for everyone.

It aspires to enrich not only your social well-being, but also your spiritual wellness. It gives you the living-and-working friendly space to explore and nourish your imagination and creativity.

Green tracts, open spaces and purpose-built communal facilities are a testament to a unique blend of form and function. 

Living in a beautiful environment that places equal emphasis on spiritual, educational and recreational aspects is such a fine distinction that sets EcoWorld apart from others – true to the value creation of its “Creating Tomorrow & Beyond” philosophy, which will continue to inspire, indefinitely.
