The Swift 3 starts at Rs 49,999 and is only available in the silver colour. Acer will be selling the laptop via their own e-store and authorized retailers across the country. The AMD Ryzen 4000-series has been a highly anticipated set of processors, built on the 7nm process which allows AMD to make the promise of not just great performance, but also of battery life.
