There is also support for Windows Hello via a fingerprint reader and the device features Intel Wireless-AC 9560 that offers 2x2 802.11ac wireless Gigabit performance. 

“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.
