The ultra-slim Swift 7 is Acer's thinnest laptop ever


The company has unveiled its world's thinnest notebook, Swift 7; a convertible laptop, Acer Spin 3; Acer Nitro 5 and Acer Chromebook 11.

The Acer Chromebook 11 has an 11.6-inch display with the resolution of 1366x768 pixels.

"Both the Switch 7 Black Edition and the Acer Predator Orion 9000 series showcase Acer's innovation and capabilities that push the boundaries of computing", said Chris Chiang, vice president of product management, Acer America. The Acer Nitro 5, on the other hand, will go on sale in the USA with a price starting at $799 (approximately Rs. 50,500).

Acer claims that the Swift 7 will last up to 12 hours on a charge.

The display, which maintains its 1080p resolution, gains a Gorilla Glass-coated touch surface and, at 14-inches, is now larger than its 13.3-inch predecessor.

The laptop also features, Intel XMM 4G LTE connectivity, Nano SIM card support and eSIM technology which enables users to download and activate eSIM profiles.

The Acer Swift 7 Ultrabook launches in March. The optimised chipset offers up to 10 hours of battery.

The Acer Switch 7 Black Edition is the ideal 2-in-1 for anyone that wants the flexibility of a tablet-to-notebook PC design with enhanced performance capabilities.

Acer has also updated its Spin 3 2-in-1 with an 8-gen Intel processor. It has 14-inch display which supports vivid imagery in Full HD with IPS technology. Acer didn't provide a battery life expectation, so don't expect anything wonderful.

The Nitro 5 laptop, which is meant for gamers, includes DDR4 RAM, AMD Radeon RX560 graphics and the latest AMD Ryzen mobile processors. Alongside the chip is 256GB of PCIe-based solid state drive and 8GB LPDDR3 RAM alongside fingerprint reader.

Acer is joining the pack of laptop reveals at CES with its own trio of updated models. In comparison, the new Dell XPS 13 with Intel core i7 processor costs Rs1,43,990. 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. The device is an ultraportable always-connected (LTE support) device that's powered by an Intel Core i7 processor and features what Acer are calling "all-day battery life". But being thinner isn't the only upgrade Acer packed into this brand new chassis, the laptop also gets a decent upgrade in specs. It will also go on sale in the North American markets at $249 (roughly Rs. 15,800).
