Acer has announced two new updates to its Swift family of consumer laptops, the Switch 5 and Swift 3.

Both laptops feature some of the latest hardware, such as 12th Gen Intel Core processors, but the flagship Swift 5 model is notable for having a 14-inch touchscreen with a 16:10 rather than 16:9 aspect ratio, meaning more real estate for greater productivity. Users will also find 16 GB of dual-channel LPDDR5 memory and up to 2 TB of PCIe 4.0 SSD storage in the Swift 5, which only weigh 2.65 lbs thanks to its aero-space grade aluminum body.

The Acer Swift 5 (SF514-56T) and Acer Swift 3 (SF314-512) will be available in North America in June starting at $1,499 and $849.99, respectively.
