Acer unveils ‘world’s lightest’ 16-inch OLED laptop

Designed for productivity on-the-go and hybrid working models, the Swift Edge is a blend of performance, security and durability


Acer has introduced the Swift Edge (SFA16-41), which is said to be the world’s lightest 16-inch OLED laptop.

Designed to help maximise the productivity and creativity demands of the present-day hybrid workforce, the 16-inch laptop is powered by AMD Ryzen PRO 6000 series and AMD Ryzen 6000 series processors and incorporates the Microsoft Pluton security processor.

The laptop also features a 4K OLED display supporting 100 per cent of the DCI-P3 color gamut and 500 nits peak brightness for cinema-grade visuals.

The 16-inch lightweight laptop features a simple yet sleek design. Weighing only 1.17kg (2.58 lbs) and measuring 12.95 mm (0.51 inches) in height, the Acer Swift Edge sports an ultra-slim magnesium-aluminum chassis, making it significantly more portable and durable.

The design concept showcases precise linear structural details, a sharp rear edge, and a simple aesthetic feel.

Performance and security
Powered by AMD Ryzen PRO 6000 Series processors, the Acer Swift Edge is equipped to support the performance demands of go-to applications and business needs. Power users get processing speed and smooth responsiveness that accelerate their productivity and collaboration with up to 8 high performance “Zen 3+” cores built on advanced 6 nm process technology.

For IT administrators, AMD PRO technologies deliver multilayered security features to help keep threats at bay, and comprehensive manageability options that scale for long-term stability and reliability.

The processors integrate Microsoft Pluton, a security processor designed by Microsoft, that hardens new Windows 11 PCs with additional protection for sensitive assets like credentials and encryption keys. To further keep users at ease, the addition of biometric authentication and a Noble Wedge Lock slot provides an added layer of security protection to help safeguard user and company data.

Display and connectivity
The Acer Swift Edge showcases a 4K OLED (3840×2400) display, with cinema-grade 100 per cent DCI-P3 color gamut support, 500 nits peak brightness, and less than 0.2ms response time.

The 16-inch laptop also features a narrow bezel with a 92 per cent screen-to body-ratio and has VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500 and TÜV Rheinland Eyesafe display certifications for an extended and comfortable viewing experience.

The laptop also supports the next generation in advanced connectivity needs. It offers Wi-Fi 6E for high-speed wireless connections and file sharing, and a smooth 4K streaming experience. Furthermore, it also includes a generous offer of essential ports such as HDMI 2.1, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports with fast charging capabilities, two USB Type-A ports, and an audio jack.

Pricing and availability
The Acer Swift Edge (SFA16-41) will be available in October in EMEA starting at $1,499.
