Acer Swift Edge 16 First Impressions: Insanely Light

We’re live here in Taipei for this year’s iteration of Computex. The first thing we wanted to check out was definitely the latest Acer Swift Edge 16 to gather our first impressions of the device. How was the overpowered ultrabook in real life?

The first thing you’ll notice about the Acer Swift Edge 16 is its no-compromises approach to things. It has a sizeable 16-inch 3.2K display supported by OLED technology for those bright and punchy colors. On paper it’s a stellar panel, and in real life it met all our expectations.

This panel is also equipped with a 120Hz refresh rate to keep things buttery-smooth, and you can definitely tell when using it.

That’s thanks to the onboard AMD Ryzen 7 7840U octa-core chipset supported by 32GB of LPDDR5 RAM. The result is effortless multitasking, whether you have tons of office apps open as well as browser tabs and even video editing on the side. This is a productivity monster that you can take anywhere.

Why exactly do we call it portable? The light magnesium alloy frame is said to tip the scales at a measly 1.23 kg. While we had no measurement tools on the spot to verify these claims, we could lift the ultrabook up with just a couple of fingers. That’s truly impressive for something that packs a powerful punch.

There are no compromises when it comes to ports and dongles either. As you can see in this image, it’s packed.

Overall, the Acer Swift Edge 16 left strong impressions on all of us due to its unbeatable power-to-weight ratio. We can’t wait to get one in our hands for a review down the line; but as of now, it’s looking like the best daily driver you could possibly own.
