Acer today held it’s first on site launch event and announced the Acer Swift Edge. Weighing a mere 1.17Kg, it is currently the world’s lightest 16-inch 4K OLED laptop.

The 16-inch laptop is powered by AMD Ryzen™ 7 PRO 6850U and AMD Ryzen™ 5 PRO 6650U. Integrated with Microsoft Pluton, the security processor adds extra security to protect sensitive assets from cyber-attacks. The Acer Swift Edge also features a 4K OLED (3,840 x 2,400 pixels) display supporting 100% of the DCI-P3 colour gamut and 500 nits peak brightness for cinema-grade visuals.

The Acer Swift Edge also features a narrow bezel with a 92% screen-to body-ratio and has VESA DisplayHDR™ True Black 500 and TÜV Rheinland Eyesafe® display certifications for an extended and comfortable viewing experience.

“Designed for productivity on-the-go and hybrid working, the Acer Swift Edge is a perfect blend of performance, security and durability.” Managing Director Acer Computer (Singapore), Chia Li Shi.


The 16-inch lightweight laptop boasts a simple yet sleek design. Weighing only 1.17 kg and measuring 12.95 mm in height, that is even smaller than a five cent coin. Fear that the thin profile might make the laptop more flimsy?
