Swift 5: Premium Portability
Combining a slick, modern design with the very latest and highest performance technology on the market, the Acer Swift 5 (SF514-55) is a light, thin and powerful notebook designed with today’s tech savvy customer in mind.

The Swift 5’s eye-catching capabilities are perfectly complemented by its sleek look and high-quality feel. Produced using premium magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum, it is both tough and also super lightweight, weighing in at only 1kg (2.29 lbs). Another notable design addition means the Swift 5 can be elevated by a uniquely designed hinge when its screen is opened – this multipurpose feature helps to deliver improved thermal performance, keeps the user’s focus on the 14-inch Full HD display and also improves ergonomics while typing.
With a 340-nit brightness rating and covering 100% of the sRGB color gamut, the Swift 5’s display is bordered by hyper-narrow bezels on all sides; the end result is a 90% screen-to-body ratio that allows for immersive viewing and a more compact form factor.
