Acer says its new Swift Edge is the world’s lightest 16″ OLED laptop

Acer has announced a new 16″ super-light and portable laptop they have dubbed “the world’s lightest.” The 16″ Acer Swift Edge sports a 4K OLED display, 500 nits of brightness, AMD Ryzen, PRO 6000 series processor, Microsoft Pluton, and biometric authentications.

The new Acer Swift Edge weighs a svelte 2.58lbs and is shy of 1/2 an inch in height. Acer made the chassis from a magnesium-aluminum alloy, which Acer says is robust and durable. The Acer Swift Edge design is what we’ve come to expect from Acer’s more premium laptops, with sharp corners and features giving it a clean and crisp aesthetic.
