Acer launches thinnest laptop with 4G, plus new convertible, Chromebook

Acer's updated Swift 7 Ultrabook is once again the 'thinnest computer in the world'

Acer today launches the world's thinnest laptop, the new Swift 7 (SF714-51T) IN CES in Las Vegas.

While we haven't had a chance to benchmark, the Swift 7, we know that its Intel Y series CPU is likely to offer signifcantly less performance than you'll get on competitors with Intel 8th Gen U Series processors. Acer has confirmed they will be released a ultra thin laptop that will on be, oh yes, 8.98mm thick.

The revamped Swift 7 is perhaps the star attraction of the show, which the company claims to be world's thinnest laptop. The laptop is said to last up to 10 hours in terms of battery life. It also has an upgraded AMD Radeon RX560 graphics card. To find out about availability, product specifications and prices in specific markets, please contact your nearest Acer office or retailer via www.acer.com. The company says customers will be able to "play games, stay productive, enjoy content and do even more with the new Acer Chromebook 11" with Google Play. It has a 14-inch display. Some connectivity features of the gaming laptop includes USB Type-C, HDMI 2.0, and Gigabit Ethernet. The gaming laptop can be fitted with up to 32 GB of RAM and 512 GB of solid state drive (SSD) if your budget will stretch.

The screen size has been bumped up to 14-inches but it's still a Full HD panel, again without any Quad HD options. The device sports the latest Intel Celeron processors, 4GB of memory and 16GB or 32GB of eMMC storage.

AcerAcer proclaims its Swift 7 Ultrabook as the thinnest laptop in the world.

Besides its sheer thinness, the rest of the Acer Swift 7 specs are pretty impressive too. However, it only uses Intel 7 generation processors, but the price is still quite high. It would be available for sale in Europe later with a price tag of 1,699 Euros (Rs 1,29,329 approximately). You'll have to settle for 0.46 inches of thickness and 2.65 pounds of weight.

The Spin 3 launches in America next month, but it's a lot more affordable with pricing starting at $599. The Windows 10-based notebook is powered by seventh-generation Intel Core i7 processor - coupled with 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 256GB PCIe SSD storage. Several models in the Acer Chromebook 11 line (CB311-8HT/ CB311-8H) will be available in North America in April from United States dollars 249, and in EMEA in March from Euro 249.
