Acer introduced the Acer Swift 7 at CES 2019, promising an even lesser machine than last year’s impossibly slim notebook.
Slowing its pursuit of that ‘world’s thinnest laptop’ title, Acer’s flagship Ultrabook for 2019 is even now just 9.95mm (.39 inches) slim and weighs in at just 890 grams (1.96 pounds).
A lesser chassis lets the Acer Swift 7 to shrink the bezels even far more this yr all around, reaching a display screen-to-system ratio of 92%. The monitor itself is a Full Hd 1,920 x 1,080-pixel panel with a one hundred% sRGB colour gamut.
The target on crafting this sort of a slim and light notebook has not appear at the expenditure of toughness, as the new Acer Swift 7 is created with magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum alloys.

Swiftly fixing the earlier
We were not the most significant lovers of the 2018 Acer Swift 7, as it pulled out the clicking operation from the touchpad, and showcased a driving-the-curve Intel seventh-generation fanless processor. Acer is addressing these complaints by including an 8th-generation Intel Amber Lake fanless processor, comparable to what is found on the 2018 MacBook Air, and an integrated click button in the touchpad.
Acer statements the Swift 7’s processor will allow 10 hrs of battery everyday living. And, when paired with the 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD, the Acer Swift 7 will supply “top-notch performance for web browsing” and “productiveness with displays and spreadsheets”.
Acer also statements that it can take care of innovative applications, but that’ll possible be constrained to some Photoshop work.
Finally, you can find the new touchpad. Created of Corning Gorilla Glass, it must be both equally long lasting and responsive. And, Acer has listened to comments, and has integrated a physical clicking mechanism into the Swift 7’s touchpad.
The Acer Swift 7 hopes to attraction to the exact same form of luxury mobile viewers as the Apple MacBooks, and will be out in the US in Could at $1,699 and Europe in April, at €1,799. Particular British isles and Australia availability data is forthcoming.
