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.
