The below is an overview of the new launches.
Highlights of the launch include the new Swift models, both of which have been upgraded to 10th Gen Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor as well as featuring the discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics, this makes them both superb all-round laptops. They have both also been upgraded to use Wi-Fi 6.

I can't post about Acer without mentioning the ridiculous Predator Thronos, which has now been updated to the Predator Thronos Air
Predator Thronos Air
The Predator Thronos Air, Acer’s newest gaming “chair,” is a sleek gaming cave for hard core enthusiasts. The steel structure includes a chair, modular desk and monitor arm. It envelops the gamer in a comfortable and encasing cockpit, ideal for total and complete battle immersion. Teal blue lighting emits a soft cool glow, perfect for gaming.
The chair can be adjusted to various angles (130 degrees inside cabin and 180 degrees outside the cabin) for maximum comfort. It even includes a massage function, so gamers can relax after intense gaming sessions. The desk includes an adjustable keyboard and mouse tray, ensuring comfortable typing regardless of seating angle. A foot rest keeps feet elevated.
Capable of supporting up to three displays, the monitor arm can be manually raised and lowered with a handle conveniently located right below the middle monitor stand. In addition, a camera can be positioned right above the middle monitor, making it easy to live stream the action to YouTube, Twitch or Mixer.
To keep the area neat and organized, a platform for a powerful gaming PC is located behind the chair, and a cable management system neatly stores cords and wires out of the way. In addition, Acer offers numerous customization options and upgrades, such as a seat stabilizer to prevent the chair from moving around during game sessions, a cup holder, a headset holder, a USB hub, and a camera.
