This laptop features a 15.6” screen with a widescreen HD display. Powered by the 8th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, the Swift 3 also has 8GB of RAM and 16GB of Intel Optane memory to supercharge the spacious 1TB hard drive. A battery life of up to ten hours on a charge means you can use this laptop all day without needing to plug in, while a bunch of handy ports (a USB 3.1 port, two USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, and an HDMI port) make it easy to plug in and connect to other devices.
