Asus Launches World’s Lightest 14-inch Laptop

Acer and Asus love to duke it out every year over thin and lightweight laptops, and this year is no different. Asus has crushed Acer to the “world’s lightest 14-inch” laptop contest. Acer revealed its Swift 5, which weighs just 2.1 pounds and proudly maintains “the world’s lightest 14-inch notebook.” Hours later, Asus announced its AsusPro B9, which weighs in at 1.9 pounds. Despite its size, Asus has managed to pack in a 10th Gen Intel Core processor, as much as two 1TB PCIe SSDs, Wi-Fi 6 support, and even an IR camera for Windows Hello.

Like many Asus notebooks, it’s a 14-inch display screen inside the body of a typical 13-inch laptop computer. That means thin screen bezels and a 94% display-to-body ratio. The “world’s lightest 14-inch laptop computer,” it’s incredibly light. It’s built to be a business laptop, but it surely feels light enough that people would easily carry it with one hand while carrying a coffee in the other as they go from one meeting room to another meeting room.

Acer’s notebook is also pretty thin, at 14.99mm, it’ll easily slip into a bag. The trackpad is also very responsive. This notebook also seems like an impressive tiny 14-inch laptop, even when it’s targeted toward corporates or business customers primarily.

Acer has a mission to make laptops thinner and lighter, at any cost. Earlier, Acer owned the crown of World’s Lightest Notebook when it launched a Swift 5 with a 15-inch Display. Swift 5 was equipped with 8th-gen Whiskey Lake Intel Core i5-826U CPU, 8GB Ram, and a 256 GB PCIe Solid-slate drive.
