Acer provides a Copilot for Windows access through a one-click press on the dedicated Copilot key, which will power up the AI side of the Swift Go AI laptop. Both of the new Acer Swift Go laptops feature a 1440p QHD webcam with TNR, which provides higher-quality video, paired with Acer PurifiedView's AI-powered conferencing features, including Background Blur, Automatic Framing, and Eye Contact.
There's also Acer PurifiedVoice 2.0 technology with AI noise reduction, powered by three microphones that provide crisp, clear audio, all while reducing background noise and voices beyond that of the speaker. There's also Intel Wi-Fi 7 for some of the fastest wireless connectivity possible, with speeds up to 2.4x faster than Wi-Fi 6E.
Now, let's talk about the displays on the Acer Swift Go AI laptops, with the new AI laptops featuring beautiful OLED displays with 500-nit peak brightness with 100% of the DCI-P3 color range and DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification.
Acer's new Swift Go 16 laptop features a 16-inch 3.2K OLED display with a 3200 x 2000 resolution and smooth 120Hz refresh rate, which is nice to see... 120Hz on a Swift Go AI laptop. Moving onto the Acer Swift Go 14, which features a 14-inch 2.8K OLED display with a 2880 x 1800 resolution and 90Hz refresh rate.
Inside, there's support for up to 32GB of LPDDR5X memory and up to an upgradeable 2TB PCIe Gen4 SSD with dual slots, so you've got plenty of RAM and SSD storage inside of the Acer Swift Go AI laptops. There's also the very latest in ports, including dual USB Type-C ports with Thunderbolt 4, which offer fast-charging, USB Type-A with offline charging, HDMI 2.1 connectivity for 4K 120Hz output, and a microSD card reader.
