The new Acer Swift 3 OLED (SF314-71) is thin and light notebook with premium features and a not that premium starting price.
Acer says the notebook, which packs a 14 inch, 2880 x 1800 pixel OLED display and a 12th-gen Intel Core processor will be available in July with prices starting at $900 in the US or 999 Euros in Europe.
The high-res display support 100 percent DCI-P3 color gamut and it’s VESA DIsplayHDR True Black 500 certified, and the screen is surrounded by slim bezels for a 92% screen to body ratio.
Acer says the laptop will be available with up to an Intel Core i7 Alder Lake-H processors, up to 16GB of LPDDR5 memory, and up to 1TB PCIe Gen 4 solid state storage, but the system is also reasonably thin and light, with an aluminum body that measures about 0.7 inches thick and weighs about 3.1 pounds.
Other features include a full HD webcam, a backlit keyboard, support for WiFi 6E, and an “OceanGlass” touchpad that’s made from ocean-bound plastic materials, but which offers a “glass-like” feel.
The laptop has two Thunderbolt 4 ports, two USB 3.2 Type-A ports, a headset jack, and a full-sized HDMI port and supports WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 wireless connectivity. There’s also a fingerprint reader built into the power key.
