The devices will start hitting the market by March this year.
The Acer Swift 7 is expected to go on sale in Europe in April, with pricing starting at €1,699 - United Kingdom pricing is unconfirmed.
The new Acer Swift 7 (image above) is, according to the manufacturer, the world's thinnest laptop at 8.98 mm, part of its CES 2018 line-up. For this comparison, Acer has considered the clamshell laptop designs in the market with macOS and Windows.
The new Swift 7 has a 14in Full HD touchscreen IPS display, topped with Corning Gorilla Glass and, as with previous Swift laptops, it can be tilted back to a rather extreme angle.
So if you're looking to buy the thinnest laptop in the world, you should know there's a new candidate in town that will be available in USA stores around March. Headling the list is the Swift 7, an ultra-thin notebook with 4G LTE connectivity. The laptop is said to last up to 10 hours in terms of battery life. 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.
Acer also rolled out its Chromebook 11, which will support Google Play for Android apps and two USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 ports. There is 256GB SSD storage onboard alongside some security features including Windows Hello fingerprint scanner. The convertible laptop goes on sale in February with starting prices of $599 (or approx Rs 37,995). Acer's Swift 7 announcement is reminiscent of its predecessor which was accompanied by the same tagline. The device will be available in North America in March from Dollars 1,699 and in EMEA in April from Euro 1,699. RAM and SSD storage are configurable up to 32GB and 512GB respectively. Offering a seventh-generation Core i7 processor, the power only slightly disappoints, especially since fans were expecting Acer to get on the eight-generation bandwagon. It runs on AMD's latest Ryzen mobile processor and packs Radeon RX 560 dedicated graphics.
The tech company also introduced its Chromebook 11, which sports an 11.6-inch display, available in touch screen.
Acer claims the Swift 7 is the world's thinnest laptop and the numbers certainly make eye-opening reading.
