“There’s been great feedback on Acer’s amazingly light 14-inch Swift 5, and we are now pushing the limits with the 15.6-inch model,” said Jerry Hou, General Manager, Consumer Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. “We’ve kept the weight under the 1 kg mark by using ultra-narrow bezels and a marginally larger chassis.”
The Swift 5’s top and bottom cover is said to be constructed using magnesium-lithium alloys and its palm rest area is made from magnesium-aluminum alloys. The “advanced materials” used on the laptop are said to make it sturdier and also lighter as it weighs around 1Kg. The laptop also comes equipped with an LED backlit keyboard.
