Acer redefines ‘thinnest laptop’ with Swift 7

AT just 8.98 mm thin, the Acer’s new Swift 7 (SF714-51T) is now the world’s thinnest laptop.

“We’re extremely proud to make the world’s thinnest laptop even thinner with the new Swift 7,” Jerry Kao, President of IT Products Business of Acer Inc. shared.  The claim of the thinnest laptopn is based on Acer’s January 2018 internal survey of competing clamshell laptop designs available on the market, running Windows OS or OSX.

It is an always-connected PC running Windows 10 that’s designed for mobility, with an ultraportable design packing a powerful Intel Core i7 processor, all-day battery life and a personal, trusted 4G LTE connection.

“Building on the engineering breakthroughs from the previous generation, the new Swift 7 steps up the game with an even slimmer chassis, powerful performance and always-on 4G LTE connectivity for professionals on the go.”  Kao adds.

“The next PC anyone buys should be a great PC – powerful to feed the newest, richest experiences all day long. Acer’s Swift 7 delivers on the performance expectation then ups the ante with built-in 4G LTE in an ultra-thin, stunning design. It’s the perfect PC for those who have things to do and create anywhere, at any time,” Chris Walker, Vice President of Intel Corp. 

“Acer’s new Swift 7 is a great Windows 10 PC for on-the-go professionals or consumers who crave portability and connectivity,” said Peter Han, Vice President, Partner Devices and Solutions, Microsoft Corp. “The Swift 7 is thin, light, and perfect for customers to stay connected on the go.”

Its unmatched slim design is only the beginning of the new features on offer. 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. In addition to a Nano SIM card slot, the Swift 7 features eSIM technology, allowing download and activation of eSIM profiles.  

The new Acer ships with a Transatel profile provisioned with up to 1 GB of free data valid for one month in 48 countries (not including the Philippines) to help users get started immediately, while additional data plans can be easily purchased as needed through the Mobile Plans application while travelling around the world. 802.11ac wireless with 2x2 MIMO provides reliable and fast connections to the office or home network.

Powered by a 7th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, the Swift 7 provides incredible performance, a seamless Windows 10 experience and up to 10 hours of battery life. 256 GB of PCIe SSD storage offers plenty of room to keep important files at the user’s fingertips, while 8 GB of LPDDR3 memory keeps multitasking smooth and responsive. A fingerprint reader allows password-free and more secure sign-in through Windows Hello.

The unibody aluminum chassis is pleasing to the eye and gentle to touch, perfect for modern professionals seeking a sophisticated look. Its new high-resolution display has been upgraded to 14-inches, and sports a Full HD IPS display, Acer Color Intelligence™ for lifelike clarity at every angle, as well as a Corning Gorilla Glass NBT touchscreen and touchpad. Typing has never been easier thanks to the Swift 7’s backlit keyboard, which is handy in low-light conditions such as long-haul international flights or train journeys.

Acer has also announced its refreshed Spin 3 (SP314-51) laptop, designed for users seeking out a versatile device for all-day productivity and entertainment. Its durable 360° dual-torque hinge enables it to function as a laptop, tablet, display and even provides a space-saving tent mode, all in a single device. Now equipped with a powerful 8th Gen Intel Core processor and impressive storage options, the Spin 3 merges exceptional performance with portability. It provides up to 12 hours4 of battery life for digital work and play on the move, with two front-facing speakers with Acer TrueHarmony technology. The Spin 3’s 14-inch display supports vivid imagery in Full HD with IPS technology, allowing on-screen content to shine through in exceptional detail.

The Acer Swift 7 will be available in North America in March with prices starting at US$1,699. (GEB)
