It’s that time of year, CES is here once again, and there’s no shortage of announcements coming our way. As we head into CES 2024, laptop maker Acer has a few announcements of its own, specifically about the launch of new Swift and Aspire notebooks.

Acer has announced it is launching three new Swift and three new Aspire laptops that include: the Swift Go 14, Swift Go 16, Swift X 14, Aspire Go 14 (Intel/AMD), Aspire Go 15, and Aspire Vero 16. The Aspire Vero 16 and all three Swift laptops have been fitted with Intel Core Ultra processors — which have AI acceleration built-in — and all of the notebooks come with Windows Copilot installed. Additionally, the keyboards on each device will have a dedicated Windows Copilot key to allow users to quickly access the AI assistant.

Here’s a further breakdown of each model.

Acer Swift

Swift Go 14

Starting with the Swift Go models, the Swift Go 14 and 16 feature an Intel Arc GPU, a 1440p QHD webcam, Wi-Fi 7 connectivity, Intel Unison 2.0 for Android and iOS, OLED displays with 500 nits of peak brightness, 32GB of LPDDR5X memory, upgradable 2TB PCIe Gen 4 SSD with dual slots, and the option for a WUXGA touchscreen. You can also expect two USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4, one USB-A port, HDMI 2.1, a microSD card reader, and Bluetooth LE.

The few points where these models differ are the display and the battery. With the Swift Go 14, Acer says you get up to 12.5 hours of battery life, while the Swift Go 16 provides up to 10.5 hours. In the display department, the G0 14 offers a 2880 x 1800 resolution with a 90 Hz refresh rate. Meanwhile, the Go 16 has a resolution of 3200 x 2000 and has a refresh rate of 120Hz. However, both models include TÜV Rheinland Eyesafe display certification to prevent eye strain.

The Swift X 14 shares the same ports, memory, and Bluetooth standard as its cheaper siblings, but uses Wi-Fi 6E and offers up to 1TB of PCIe Gen 4 SSD storage.

Acer says this premium laptop is designed to help users with higher-quality streaming, video editing, and 3D rendering.

Both models are also said to have 10 hours of battery life, 16GB LPDDR5 of RAM, up to 1TB of M.2 PCIe Gen3 SSD storage, 16:10 aspect ratios, and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity.
