It’s honestly tough for notebook manufacturers to deliver a combination of portability and performance in a single package. Fortunately, Acer has nailed it with the Spin 5 as well as the Swift 5, as both of them feature up to Intel’s 11th-generation processors, and to top all that off, you’re getting a $200 discount thanks to Black Friday 2020. Given below are the important details belonging to the Spin 5 and the Swift 5, so you’ll know which notebook can serve as your daily driver.
Acer Spin 5
Coming in at $899.99, the Acer Spin 5 is an impressively sleek machine that also touts a fair degree of performance thanks to an Intel 10th-generation Core i7-1065G7 CPU, 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM, and 512GB of PCIe NVMe storage, which is replaceable. It flaunts a 360-degree hinge, a 13.5-inch touchscreen with a crisp 2256 x 1504 resolution that’s also compatible with a stylus, which is obviously included in the packaging.
Alongside this, you get two Thunderbolt 3 ports, which is a necessity at this point if you want to maximize your throughput when it comes to hooking up additional monitors, an external GPU solution, or attaching high-speed storage drives. With its 15-hour battery, you can easily take the Acer Spin 5 with you and forget about having to plug it in the wall when you return from your journey.
Acer Swift 5
The more powerful Acer Swift 5 features the Intel 11th-generation Core i7-1165G7, along with Intel Iris Xe graphics, 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM, and a single 1TB M.2 PCIe NVMe storage. The build quality is beyond premium and is lightweight at the same time, giving you immense portability in return. The 14-inch 1080p display has a 90 percent screen-to-body ratio and outputs 100 percent of the sRGB color space, making the display excellent for content creators or creative professionals.
Apart from Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1, there is a Thunderbolt 4 port in Type-C USB form that allows users to obtain excellent throughput by connecting eGPUs and external monitors. On top of that, you get 15 hours of battery life, which is remarkable if you want to stay away from the wall’s power socket for an extended period. Priced at $1,099.99, the Acer Swift 5 can be your daily driver at a lower price if you hurry.
The discounts for both laptops are valid for today only, so if you need a work-based machine that you can also take around with you, pick one from these two.
