Acer Swift 7 is just 8.9mm

Pete Mitchell | 09 January, 2018, 01:02

At the event, Acer has made an impressive impact with its three updated launches.

The Acer Switch 7 Black Edition will be available in January with a one-year limited parts and labor warranty and prices starting at US$1,699 (MSRP).

Acer's new laptop was unveiled at this week's CES 2018 tech show in Las Vegas, and is one of the company's highlights for the event.

Unlike the Swift 7 range, the Acer Spin 3 debuts as an all-day productivity and entertainment notebook - offering a laptop, tablet, display, and a space-saving tent mode through its 360-degree dual-torque hinge design. Its new Full HD IPS touchscreen has been upgraded to 14-inches.

Acer claims to have the thinnest laptop in the world for now.

As a notable addition, the new Swift 7 boasts integrated 4G LTE connectivity. Blazing-fast, built-in Intel XMM 4G LTE connectivity keeps users productive and always-connected, especially useful for professionals who wish to eliminate tedious wireless connection problems on the road so they can stay focused on the task at hand. Memory comes in at 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 256GB of PCIe SSD storage.

The Swift 7's unibody aluminum chassis is pleasing to the eye and gentle to touch, flawless for modern professionals seeking a sophisticated look.

Below, I'll outline each laptop and give you an idea of what to expect, including the laptops' United Kingdom release date, price and specifications.

It sounds slim on paper, but in the metal the Swift 7 somehow feels even thinner.

Acer is staking out the premium business and budget ends of the laptop market with the Swift 7, billed as the world's thinnest laptop, and Acer Chromebook 11, respectively.

The Nitro 5 (AN515-42) starts at $799 and ships in May 2018. The lineup will now include options powered by AMD's Ryzen mobile processors and Radeon RX 560 graphics cards. Powering the laptop is an Intel Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of eMMC storage.

Due to the high performance hardware installed in the system the Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop is only capable of providing a few hours of play while away from a mains connection, although this is not going to cause an issue for most. The Nitro 5 will launch sometime in April. This year, it'll feature updated specs in the form of 8th Generation Intel Core processors.

The Chromebook 11 will be available from £259 and will come to the United Kingdom in March 2018.
