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

Acer Swift 7 world’s thinnest notebook finds room for 4G LTE

Taiwanese technology giant Acer has launched the Acer Swift 7, which is claimed to be the thinnest laptop in the world. Offering a seventh-generation Core i7 processor, the power only slightly disappoints, especially since fans were expecting Acer to get on the eight-generation bandwagon.

Acer has also upgraded the screen from a 13.3-inch display to a 14-inch IPS5 panel on the new Swift 7.

Among all the new offerings, the new Acer Swift 7 is perhaps the most interesting one.

Acer today announced its new Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop, designed for casual gamers seeking great performance in an attractive laser-textured design. It is fitted with a 14-inch full HD IPS 5 display. The Windows 10-powered Swift 7 will be made available in the market from March at a price of $1,699 (or approx Rs 107,606). It has 8 GB of LPDDR3 RAM to keep the multitasking responsive. The CES stage was also leveraged to unveil the new, Blue-coloured Chromebook 11. We'll with hold judgment until we run our battery test on the new Swift 7, but the prior model, which was thicker, lasted for only 7 and a half hours. Both have 11.6in IPS displays, stereo speakers and a pair of USB-Type C ports. It also includes the Nitro Sense GPU/CPU monitoring software, which provides real-time metrics for those components.

Acer has debuted three new laptops just before the official commencement of CES 2018 conference at Las Vegas, US.

The Spin 3 (SP314-51) starts at $599 and ships in February 2018. There are two USB-C ports - obviously no full-size ports, as there's simply not the space - alongside a 3.5mm headphones jack, the latter fitted into the spine to go nearly unnoticed. Connectivity options include USB Type-C and HDMI 2.0 ports, and 802.11ac WiFi with 2x2 MIMO support. It is available with touch or non-touch display and comes with Google Play support at launch. However, it packs the latest-generation AMD Radeon RX560 graphics, the latest AMD Ryzen mobile processor, up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM, and up to 512GB of SSD storage. When we tested the 2017-edition of the Swift 7, which had a very-similar Core i5-7Y54 CPU, it scored about 25 percent less than its main competitors on Geekbench 4, a synthetic benchmark.

Besides the Swift 7, Acer also refreshed the Spin 3 360-degree convertible laptop.
