TL;DR
  • Acer announced new PCs at CES 2023, including the all-new Acer Swift Go laptops.
  • They will be released in 14-inch and 16-inch models, and both versions come with OLED displays in thin-and-light notebook designs.
  • Acer also announced hardware refreshes for many of its other desktop and notebook lines.

At CES 2023 Acer had plenty of new PC products to show off, including several new laptops under its Aspire, Swift, and Predator product lines. While most of the reveals today were basically refreshes of existing notebooks, the company did reveal an all-new laptop line: Acer Swift Go.

Available in 14-inch and 16-inch models, the Acer Swift Go’s big feature is their support for OLED screens. They will have 500-nit peak brightness, high amounts of contrast, and deep black levels, including 100% DCI-P3 color range and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification. The 16-inch Acer Swift Go will have a resolution of 3,200 x 2,000 pixels, while the 14-inch version will have 2,880 x 1,800 resolution support. The Acer Swift Go notebooks will also be sold with regular IPS screens.
