Acer has revealed a sexy new devicesk which is currently the thinnest some tasty-looking new laptops, one of which is the most slender notebook ever produced – the first in the world to measure less than 1cm thick – along with a convertible that utilizes a 360-degree hinge for the ultimate in flexibility.
As mentioned, the Acer Swift 7 is the first laptop to dip under the 1cm barrier, Acer notes, with the device measuring 9.98mm – which is getting down to tablet-like levels – and unsurprisingly it doesn’t weigh much either at 1.1kg.
It has an all-aluminum unibody chassis with a rather smart looking black and gold color scheme, and the Swift 7 boasts a 13.3-inch IPS screen with a full HD resolution (1920 x 1080) fashioned from Gorilla Glass.
Spec-wise, this might be a lean machine, but it’s mean enough in terms of power with an Intel Core i5 Kaby Lake processor on board backed by up to 8GB of system memory and a 256GB SSD.
In terms of connectivity, there are two USB 3.1 ports and 802.11ac Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO (router technology which allows for a better connection when using multiple devices wirelessly).
As for battery life, Acer claims you get up to 9 hours with this model.
The Swift 7 is the premium offering, but there are others in the range which weigh in with cheaper price tags.
