Acer Swift 1 laptop was introduced last year with an Intel Pentium N4200 “Apollo Lake” processor and a 13.3″ display, and it appears the laptop is getting an upgrade to the latest Intel Pentium Silver N5000 Gemini Lake processor and a large 14″ display based on product pages (here and there) recently updated on Acer Germany website.
Acer Swift 1 (2018) specifications:

- Power Supply – 45Watts

The laptop ships with Windows 10 Home, the battery, and a power adapter. The two models are called “Swift 1 SF114-32-P8GG” (NX.GXUEG.003) and “Swift 1 SF114-32-P9Y2” (NX.GXUEG.002), but I was unable to spot any differences between the two.
I could not find any pricing information for those exact models, but a slightly different ACER Swift 1 SF114-32-P40C model with the same Pentium N5000 processor, and a 128 GB SSD is sold for 549.90 Euros (in.c VAT) on a Finnish website.

body colour is the only difference.
Yikes… the low end really isn’t moving. I bought my ASUS UX305F 3 years ago for $600. It’s fanless and has almost same exact specs (though with 8GB of RAM)
Xiaomi Air is cheaper and has a real CPU…
Not better on battery, also it have new significant features like HDMI 2.0 support and VP9 10-bit Profile2 hardware decoder, I would say it’s only overpriced in term of the cpu overall performance.
