Its design is rounded out with an optional backlit keyboard that’s paired with a large 72mm touchpad. Perhaps the most novel feature is the built-in fingerprint scanner located at the upper right-hand corner of the palm rest- yes, there’s a place to rest your palm. It works in conjunction with Windows Hello for enhanced security, and takes less than one second from scanning a fingertip to access the desktop. The scanner can also recognize specific people and link actions to approved individuals. All-in-all, the Swift 3 promises to be a slick device with improved safety.
