The announcement of the upgraded Swift 7 Ultrabook comes in time as CES 2018, a world gathering for businesses of consumer technologies.

Acer took the opportunity today to announce several new notebook designs ahead of CES 2018.

The Swift 7, which will run $1,699 in North America starting in March, follows a well-worn playbook for PC makers. For this comparison, Acer has considered the clamshell laptop designs in the market with macOS and Windows. In terms of screen size, Acer has upgraded the screen from a 13.3-inch panel in last year's model to a 14-inch display with 1080p resolution.

ACER has unleashed what it calls "the world's thinnest laptop", putting chunky MacBooks to shame. Acer Swift 7 is powered by an Intel 7th Gen Core i7 processor.

As for connectivity, there's a dual-stream 802.11ac wireless adapter built in and plenty of physical ports, including an SD card reader, three USB Type-A, one USB Type-C, plus 3.5mm headphone/mic and Ethernet ports.




The Swift 7's unibody aluminum chassis really looks and feels like you could slip it into a manila folder. Acer hasn't released a full spec sheet yet, but the laptop may be priced at $599 and will be available in February.

The new Acer Spin 3 (SP314-51) has a durable 360-degree rotating screen, letting users view content in different modes such as laptop mode, tent mode, tablet mode or display mode.

Acer's Nitro 5 will have prices starting from USD799 (around RM3,187).

The Acer Nitro 5 Gaming Laptop (above) isn't the most expensive nor the fastest out there. The 15.6-inch laptop comes with up to 32GB DDR 4 RAM and up to 512GB of SSD drive. The company has now launched the Swift 7 laptop, which is now the world's thinnest laptop as per the claims. The new Acer Chromebook 11 comes in two models, namely CB311-8H and CB311-8HT, both featuring an 11.6-inch display with 1366×768 pixels resolution.

If you're looking for a new gaming laptop, then the new 2018 Nitro 5 might be the device for you. The device is equipped with an 8th Gen Intel Core processor and provides up to 12 hours of battery life, with two front-facing speakers with Acer TrueHarmony technology. The device will also fully support Google Play when it launches. It also costs $1,699, a price that gets you always-on 4G LTE connectivity, a 14-inch Full HD touchscreen display, a seventh-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and 256GB of PCIe SSD storage.
