Acer Swift Go Laptops – The Latest Tech with OLED Displays, Wi-Fi 7 and AI Features

Verified as Intel Evo platform laptops, the new Acer Swift Go 16 (SFG16-72) and Swift Go 14 (SFG14-73) are powered by new Intel Core Ultra processors and Intel Arc built-in GPUs, delivering the in-demand pairing of premium performance and all-day battery life of up to 12.5 hours[2] for the 14-inch laptop and up to 10.5 hours[3] for the 16-inch version.

Other improvements to enhance user experiences and creativity with AI-supported features make the Swift Go laptop lines even more attractive. Built for the next wave of computing, users can access Copilot in Windows with one click of the laptop’s dedicated Copilot key and harness the power of AI to optimize time spent when working, creating, and playing on the device. Both AI PCs also showcase a 1440p QHD webcam with TNR, resulting in higher-quality video, paired with Acer PurifiedView’s AI-boosted conferencing features including Background Blur, Automatic Framing, and Eye Contact. The webcam is complemented by Acer PurifiedVoice 2.0 technology with AI noise reduction, which pairs with the three microphones to capture crisp, clear audio and reduce background noise and voices beyond that of the speaker. The addition of Intel Wi-Fi 7 delivers internet connection speeds up to 2.4x faster than Wi-Fi 6E[4] and keeps the laptops connected when it matters most.

Both laptops highlight the Swift line’s thin-and-light aluminum chassis, which can be opened to 180 degrees, so they lay flat for easy collaboration. The Swift Go 14 features an option for a multi-control lighting touchpad on certain models that enables direct media commands, and an OceanGlass touchpad that further ensures smooth and productive scrolling experiences. Both touchpads also boast 44% larger scrolling space[5] to support on-the-go lifestyles and mouse-free scrolling. Plus, the Swift Go models now feature the latest Intel Unison 2.0, which enables a fast and easy connection between the laptop and the customer’s Android or iOS devices[6].

Like their predecessors, the new Swift Go devices feature vibrant, color-rich OLED displays with 500-nit peak brightness, 100% DCI-P3 color range, and DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification. Images are vivid and detailed on the Swift Go 16’s 16-inch 3.2K OLED display with a 3200 x 2000 resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate, while the Swift Go 14 presents a 14-inch 2.8K OLED display with a 2880 x 1800 resolution and a 90 Hz refresh rate. Both models include TÜV Rheinland Eyesafe® display certification to help reduce the effects of eye strain. Plus, they feature the option for WUXGA touchscreen displays to enable touch and pen input, especially helpful for note-taking and sketching.

In addition, the Swift Go laptops now support up to 32GB LPDDR5X memory and up to an upgradable 2TB PCIe Gen 4 SSD with dual slots. Finally, the devices carry the latest port selection to connect to peripherals and displays including dual USB Type-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 –both offering fast charging, a USB Type-A port with offline charging, HDMI 2.1, and a microSD card reader. The laptops also include Bluetooth LE Audio for improved wireless audio.
