Protection for the Modern Era

Why Antimicrobial?

Thousands of microbes are able to attach to the surface of electronic devices and with every tap, touch or swipe, lead to potential contact or exposure. Since we spend so much time with our PCs at home and at work, knowing how to keep the surfaces clean and as protected as possible is a growing concern in today’s environment that demands a solution.

At Acer, we have implemented a number of antimicrobial solutions that extend to the surface of the chassis, the touchscreen, top cover, keyboard, and touchpad. With this type of implementation, your device can stay cleaner longer and will not require regular alcohol scrubbing or specialized covers.

Silver-Ion Coating for Surfaces[1]

A BPR & EPA-compliant silver-ion antimicrobial agent in the coating on the surface of chassis, keyboard, hinge, fingerprint reader – even labels – is proven to show a consistent [3 log (>99.9%){2}] microbial reduction rate against a broad range of bacteria under the JIS Z 2801 & ISO 22196 test protocol. The rubber feet are also made of a silver-ion based antimicrobial material.

Antimicrobial Corning® Gorilla® Glass[3]

For displays as well as touchpads4, by incorporating silver ions (Ag+) as the antimicrobial agent into Corning® Gorilla® Glass, the glass surface can stay cleaner longer and less susceptible to odor-causing bacteria. This is done via trace amounts of silver ions leaching to the glass surface to eliminate the surface bacteria while still offering other benefits such as improved durability and improved scratch resistance.

Antimicrobial solutions may vary by device. Please check with your local Acer sales representative on what device/solutions are available.
1 The amounts of silver ions will be affected by humidity and temperature.
2 Log reduction is a measure of how thoroughly a decontamination process reduces the concentration of a contaminant. It is defined as the common logarithm of the ratio of the levels of contamination before and after the process
3 The antimicrobial protection is limited to the touch surface. All antimicrobial solutions including Antimicrobial Corning® Gorilla® Glass do not claim to protect users or provide any direct or implied health-“benefit.”
4 Specifications may vary depending on model and/or region. All models subject to availability.

    To be perfect Swift 5 @Acer-Manny

    1. Please select Tigerlake UP3 (PCIE 4.0 support) for my next Swift 5 instead of Tigerlake UP4 ( ** which support only PCIE 3.0) 

    2. Choose 32GB LPDDR5 5400 MT/sec Instead of exist LPDDR4X 4266 MT/sec

    3. LG IPS 4K HDR600 Screen Instead of AUO B140HAK02.5 (AUO253D) Full HD Please 

    4. More NVME SSD Slot to allow RAID-0 Please. And Please do not use cheap PCIE 3.0 x 2 SSD like my Swift 5 514-54GT again.
    Trying SAMSUNG EVO PLUS 1TB single drive or RAID-0 SAMSUNG EVO PLUS 512GB x 2 Please.

    5. Dual FAN Design Please and Use at least GEFORCE MX450 PCIE 4.0 paired with Core i7 1185G7. These will be perfect Swift 5 ever made @Acer-Manny

    Please tell Acer BOSS applied this setting up before selling Acer Swift 5 [email protected] . If not Swift 5 look like bad performance compare to
