[CES 2018] Not all laptops are built the same, and while they are all essentially mobile computers, some are more mobile than others. For example some have been designed to be mobile and rugged, meaning while it is portable, it can be bulky. Others have been designed specifically for portability, meaning they’ve been built to be light and thin, which is what Acer has done with its latest laptop, the Acer Swift 7.
According to Acer, they are boasting that the Swift 7 is the “thinnest computer in the world” and measures 8.98mm thin. To give you guys some context, some of the thinner laptops available in the market right now include Apple’s 12-inch MacBook which measures 0.52-inches (13.2mm), and the new Dell XPS 13 (2018), launched two days ago, which is 11.6mm at its thickest point and 7.8mm at its thinnest point.
As for specs, the laptop is capable of being equipped with an Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and 256GB of PCIe SSD storage. The battery capacity is 36 Wh, which isn’t the absolute biggest, but is very decent when considering the laptop’s size. It will run on Windows 10, feature a 14-inch Full HD IPS display, and a backlit keyboard. It will also come with Intel XMM 4G LTE connectivity, meaning that users can remain connected even if there is no WiFi, making it useful for those who are always on the go and need to stay connected.
In terms of pricing and availability, the Acer Swift 7 is priced starting at US$1,699 and will be available in North America in March, and in EMEA in April and will be priced starting at €1,699.
