AMD Ryzen laptops are all the rage now, and Acer has responded to demand accordingly by releasing an AMD variant of their Acer Swift 3 productivity laptop.
The Acer Swift 3 will be the first laptop powered by an AMD Ryzen 5 4500U processor that is officially available for immediate purchase in the Malaysian market.
Designed for productivity on the go, the Swift 3 balances style, power and efficiency. It is powered by up to 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics on the highest end model, which unfortunately only comes in the Intel variant - the AMD variant settles for just 8GB of DDR4 RAM and AMD Radeon graphics.
All variants sport a 14" FHD IPS display and 512GB of PCIe NVMe SSD storage within a metal chassis that measures only 15.95mm thin and weighs under 1.2kg. The Swift 3 also supports fast charging, which adds 4 hours of usage within just 30 minutes.
The AMD variant comes in purple and silver, and retails at RM2,599. The Intel variant comes in blue, pink, and gray, and retails at RM3,099 or RM4,299 depending on your choice of specs. The full specs and price list can be found below:
All variants are available immediately on Acer's official online store, Acer's official Shopee store, as well as official partnered Shopee and Lazada stores. The first 100 purchasers of the Swift 3 will also be entitled to redeem RM100 of Touch 'n' Go e-wallet credit using this form.
