CES is known for exciting tech announcements, but some odd ones creep in, too.

Two of Acer’s new models come under the Swift Go branding and are verified as Intel Eco platform machines.

Starting with the Swift Go models, Acer announced its new thin and light laptops featuring Intel Core Ultra processors with Intel’s very first neural processing unit and other AI wizardry. Predictably, that means that these laptops also have a Copilot key, too. Each laptop features support for Wi-Fi 7, another CES buzzword, and all-day battery life. The 14-inch model runs for 12.5 hours while the 16-inch one taps out at 10.5 hours.

No matter which display size you choose you’ll get an OLED display with a 500-nit peak brightness and 100% DCI-P3 color range. The Swift Go 16’s bigger display has a 3.2K 3,200 x 2,000 resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate while the smaller 14-inch model has a 2,880 x 1,800 resolution and the slower 90Hz refresh rate.
