Acer OledYou don’t have to spend a lot of money (or go big) to have OLED on a laptop. The Swift 3 OLED, an improved version of Acer’s thin-and-light mainstream portable, is the star of Acer‘s revamped laptop range. The 14-inch “2.8K” panel, as you might expect, boasts OLED’s hallmark high contrast, accurate color (100 percent DCI-P3), and 500-nit HDR. With a screen-to-body ratio of 92 percent, it might be a good choice if you want rich images without spending a lot of money.

The Swift 3 OLED is powered by 12th-generation Intel Core H-series processors with integrated Iris Xe graphics, PCIe Gen 4 SSDs, and up to 16GB of LPDDR5 memory. It will be available in the United States in July for $900. While we wouldn’t call it a cheap laptop, considering the display technology, it’s a good deal.

Upgrades are also available for convertibles. The 14-inch Spin 5 (pictured in the middle) has a 1600p display and can be configured with a 12th-generation Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB PCIe Gen 4 SSD. There are also two Thunderbolt 4 connections and an upgraded cooling system, which should result in increased performance under severe loads.

The upgraded Spin 5 will be available initially, with a starting price of $1,350. The new Acer Spin 3 will be available in August for $850. Acer is also growing its environmentally friendly Vero range. New Vero laptops with 12th-generation Core processors, Thunderbolt 4 ports, and 1080p screens are available, with bodies constructed partially from recycled and ocean-bound plastic. A 24-inch Veriton Vero all-in-one with up to a 12th-generation Core i9 processor and GeForce MX550 graphics is available for desktop users.
