2023 Acer Swift Laptop Lineup
Swift 14 (SF14-71)
Sporting a new and improved design, the latest Swift 14 (SF14-71T) boasts a thin-and-light CNCmachined unibody chassis enveloped in gorgeous aerospace-grade aluminum that comes in either Mist Green or Steam Blue colorways. The diamond-cut edges and double anodized materials elevate the slender and high-class chassis that measures a mere 14.95 mm (0.59 inch) thin and weighs only 1.2 kg (2.64 lbs). The OceanGlass touchpad complements the laptop’s premium style while also contributing to Acer’s Earthion mission, as the glass-like touchpad has been made from ocean-bound plastic waste.
The Swift 14 laptop looks good inside and out as it houses up to 13th Gen Intel Core H-series processors and is Intel Evo-verified while offering more than 9.5 hours of battery life. The notebooks are also integrated with Intel Unison allowing users to collaborate across different operating systems on the most vital productivity functions. The Swift 14’s impressive thermal solutions feature an air inlet design that pairs with Acer’s TwinAir dual-fan system and D6 copper heat pipes to increase airflow that keeps the systems cool.
The Acer Swift 14 offers two gorgeous 14-inch touchscreen display options – either WQXGA (2560×1600) or WUXGA (1920×1200) that are both covered with durable Antimicrobial Corning® Gorilla® Glass to boost durability, provide scratch resistance, and prevent the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria. Hybrid employees, remote workers, and students on the go will enjoy conferences, classes, and video chats with the Swift 14’s 1440p QHD webcam with TNR technology, Acer PurifiedVoice™, and dual speakers enhanced with DTS® Audio. User logins are made easier without sacrificing security with Windows Hello and the integrated fingerprint reader, while the USB Type-C Thunderbolt™ 4 ports and HDMI 2.1 port provide a convenient connection to peripherals.
