Acer Once Again Flaunts Its Mastery with Thin Laptops; Readies Swift 7

January 8, 2018, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Acer is continuing its tryst with super slim laptops. The company has now launched the Swift 7 laptop, which is now the world’s thinnest laptop as per the claims.

Measuring a mere 8.98 mm in thickness, Acer’s super-skinny design follows that of its Swift series laptops. But it has also managed to get few other hefty upgrades for the Swift 7. Despite measuring thinner than the previous model, the Swift 7 laptop packs a heavier Intel Core i7 7th-gen processor along with full Windows 10 OS.

The display also gets bigger with the inclusion of a 14-inch Full HD IPS touch-screen. The display also gets a Corning Gorilla Glass NBT protection. A fully backlit keyboard finds place beneath the display, packing along a fingerprint reader for Windows Hello.

As with the inside specs, the Swift 7 comes with 8 GB LPDDR3 RAM and an SSD storage of 256 GB. The bundled battery is good enough to keep the device running for almost ten hours. But those aren’t just the few that wows the users. Swift 7 also features integrated LTE connectivity, which surprisingly is still an emerging feature in laptops.

The Intel XMM 4G LTE modem will support both nano Sim and an eSIM to let users easily switch to the network of their choice.  Additionally on the connectivity front, the Swift 7 also features WiFi 702.11ac 2×2 MIMO and Bluetooth support.

Despite all these catchy features, there’s a big setback that could draw a segment of buyers from the device, and that’s the price. Swift 7 is priced at a massive $1700, a price-point for which one could obtain Intel’s eighth-gen processor powered laptops with better specifications from rivals. But if slimness is atop the priority list, then that staggering price-point shouldn’t be stopping you from buying the Swift 7.

Acer has also unveiled two other laptops along with the Swift 7. The Acer Spin 3 is the 360-degree notebook that comes with Intel 8th Gen processors and 15.6-inch display. The Nitro 5 is for the casual gamers, and comes upgraded with AMD Radeon RX560 GPU and AMD’s Ryzen processor. The devices will start hitting the market by March this year.
