Acer has now expanded its Swift notebook series, which includes ultra-portable notebooks intended for the upper house, and this new notebook, unlike usual, was not given a number, but the name Edge.
The novelty stands out not only in terms of its name, but also in terms of its interior, as it is based on an AMD platform instead of Intel, namely the 6000 Ryzen Pro series. This already includes the Microsoft Pluton architecture, so it takes the place of TPM for security tasks. However, Acer does not emphasize speed and security, but rather the low weight of the Edge, as they claim that it is currently the lightest 16-inch notebook on the market.
This lightness means a weight of 1.17 kilograms, which really does not sound bad, as do the other elements of portability: the display surrounded by a thin frame covers 92% of the front panel, and the thickness of the machine case is only 13 mm. An OLED panel with a 16:10 aspect ratio, 3840 x 2400 pixels, 100% DCI-P3 color space, 500 nits maximum brightness, DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification serves as the screen. There are also two USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C, two Type-A, one HDMI 2.1 and combined audio connectors on the sides of the magnesium-aluminum machine housing.
The Swift Edge is expected to arrive on the English market at the beginning of November, and its starting price of HUF 670,000 applies to a package equipped with a Ryzen 7 6800U processor, 16 GB DDR5 memory and a 1 TB PCIe SSD, including Windows 11.
