The market has been flooded with Qualcomm Snapdragon X-powered laptops with the “Copilot+ PC” tag in recent days. It is only natural for Acer to join in the hype too. In this article, we will discuss the newly launched Acer Swift 14 AI in further detail including its expected price in Nepal.

Acer Swift 14 AI Overview

Design and Display

The latest Acer offering comes in a sleek design with an aluminium chassis and a hinge with 180° movement. It features an edge-to-edge glass cover over the panel giving a seamless experience. Similarly, the Acer Swift 14 AI has an activity indicator baked into its trackpad. Meanwhile, the laptop has a fingerprint sensor on its power button for added security. It ships in light and dark grey colour options.

On the front, you get a 14.5-inch screen with an IPS LCD panel on the Acer Swift 14 AI. It stretches WQXGA in resolution and is smooth with a 120Hz refresh rate. Additionally, the screen is also decently vibrant with a 100% sRGB colour gamut. In the meantime, this laptop can be configured with a touchscreen option as well.


Moving on to the performance side of things, the Acer Swift 14 AI comes with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon X processors. You get to choose from two CPU options i.e. the Snapdragon X Elite X1E-78-100 and the Snapdragon X Plus X1P-64-100. The former is the more powerful one between the two. However, both these processors are well-equipped with AI capabilities. The laptop comes with a dedicated Copilot button and features like Recall, Live Captions, Windows Studio Effects, in-device generative AI called Cocreator, and so on.

Other than that, it packs a memory of up to 32GB capacity split into two channels. Moreover, the RAM here is an LPDDR5X unit with an 8,533 MHz frequency. Likewise, the storage on the Acer Swift 14 AI is handled by an NVMe PCIe Gen 4 SSD with 1TB capacity. On the software front, the laptop boots on Windows 11 specifically designed for devices running on processors with ARM64 architecture.

Battery and the rest

In the tank, this laptop packs a 75Wh battery with fast-charging support. Acer does not mention anything about the charger that Swift 14 AI ships with inside the box. Additionally, the wireless connectivity on this laptop is solid as well with the latest WiFi 7 and Bluetooth v5.4 support. Meanwhile, the port options include two USB4, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, and a combo headphone jack.
