Designed to be carried around all-day for work and entertainment, the Swift 5 is the lightest 14” clamshell notebook that weighs just 990 grams and has a powerful NVIDIA® graphics card.  It also has the latest Intel® Core™ CPU and is only 15.65mm deep, so you can be confident in its powerful design.
"Larger battery, new hinge, and 10th Gen Intel hardware make this refresh an attractive, slim Ultrabook option. The first thing you'll notice about the refreshed Swift 5 is how thin and light it is, especially for a 14-inch device."

Windows Central reviewed of the Swift 5, giving it 4 out of 5 stars.

Lightweight & Powerful

This powerful notebook weighs just 990g1 making it the lightest notebook in its class2 and has a powerful graphics card. The chassis is made from magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum metal and it’s just 15.65mm thin[1][5].

So Much Productivity

The Swift 5 has a host of productivity options. The NVIDIA® GeForce® MX2501 supercharges your laptop and provides 3.5X faster performance over integrated graphics for photo and video-editing applications. By using the latest 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processor and having a max. of 512 GB  PCIe 3x4 SSD it’s great for work  and play[1].

Full Connectivity

With a full range of connectivity options the Swift 5 is capable of quickly connecting to wireless networks and USB-C™ devices. Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) improves network average throughput by up to
3 times1 and up to 75% reduction2 in latency compared to Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac). The full function USB-C™ supports for superfast data transfer over Thunderbolt 3, USB3.1 Gen 2 and Display Port and can be used for power delivery[3][4].

[3]. 802.11ax 2x2 160MHz enables 2402Mbps maximum theoretical data rates, 3X faster than standard 802.11ac 2x2 80MHz (867Mbps) and nearly 6x faster than baseline 1x1ac (433Mbps) Wi-Fi as documented in IEEE 802.11 wireless standard specifications, and require the use of similarly configured 802.11ax wireless network routers.
[4]. “Up to 75% lower latency” is based on Intel simulation data of 802.11ax with and without OFDMA using 9 clients. Average latency without OFDM is 36ms, with OFDMA average latency is reduced to 7.6ms. Latency improvement requires that the AP and all clients support OFDMA.
