Unveiled just last month globally, the Acer Swift 3X with the Intel Iris Xe Max dedicated GPU is now available in Malaysia. On top of that, the refreshed – and more affordable – Acer Aspire 5 with Intel’s latest 11th generation Tiger Lake chip has also arrived on our shores.
Two variants of the Swift 3X are offered in Malaysia. The base model with a Core i5-1135G7 processor paired with 8GB of RAM retails at RM3,799, while the higher-end Core i7-1165G7 configuration with double the RAM (16GB) goes for RM4,599. Regardless of which model you go for, you get the brand new Iris Xe Max discrete GPU, a 14-inch 1080p IPS screen, and a 512GB SSD.
Aside from that, the Swift 3X is also quite a portable laptop. Weighing 1.37kg with a 17.95mm thin chassis, you can easily lug it around in your backpack. On top of that, it also has a quoted battery life of up to 17.5 hours. It’s a very impressive figure, and it’d be interesting to see if it can really achieve that in real life usage.
As for the Aspire 5, it is offered in two sizes (14-inch and 15.6-inch), either a Core i5-1135G7 or Core i7-1165G7 processor, as well as an optional Nvidia GeForce MX350 dedicated GPU for extra graphics performance. All variants of the Aspire 5 also come with 4GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. Here’s the full list of Aspire 5 configurations (and retail prices) for the local market:
Both the Acer Swift 3X and Acer Aspire 5 are now available for purchase in Malaysia. It’s worth noting that both of these laptops come with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2019 pre-installed, and those that purchase either laptops can also redeem up to RM100 Touch ‘n Go eWallet credit, a personalised laptop sleeve, and a backpack. These gifts can be redeemed right here.
