Laptops come in a variety of shapes and sizes and cater to various users. For example those who are in the field a lot might appreciate a laptop that while might be heavier and bulkier, can take a beating. This is versus someone like a student who wants a laptop slim and light enough to slip into their bag to bring to class.
Now if you are after such a laptop, you’re in luck as Acer has recently announced the Swift 7 laptop, a laptop which they are calling “extremely thin” due to the fact that it measures a mere 9.98mm in height and weighs 1.1 kg, meaning that tucking it under your arm or dropping it into your bag to go to work or school should not be an issue.
The Swift 7 will sport an all-aluminum uni-body design with a black and gold finish which is admittedly rather stylish. It will also sport Corning’s Gorilla Glass display technology for its 13.3-inch Full HD IPS display. It will be powered by Intel’s 7th gen Core i5 processor and will sport a 256GB SSD, up to 8GB of RAM, USB 3.1 Type-C ports, a HD webcam, and a battery life of up to 9 hours (although this will depend on how you use it).
In terms of price, the Acer Swift 7 will be priced starting at $999 and will be available in North America come October.
