All three new Swift laptops are ultra-portables and should find themselves positioned as some of the lightest laptops in the world when they launch this autumn. These are aimed at those don’t fancy lugging about a back-breaking rucksack around, but still need something that can handle the basics with aplomb.
Called the “thinnest laptop in the world” by Acer at IFA, the new Swift 7 will steal the mantle from the previous iteration of the Acer Swift 7, which wasn8217;t released all that long ago.
The Swift 78217;s bezels have been squashed down to a bare minimum, with the machine boasting a 92%screen-to-body ratio. There’s no word on the device8217;s exact screen size just yet, with Acer tight-lipped on its specs, but something similar to the existing Swift 78217;s 14-inch Full HD IPS display seems logical.
Acer seems to love breaking records, and so following the Swift 78217;s lead, the company revealed that the Swift 5 will likely become the world’s lightest 15-inch notebook when its wafer-thin bezels start hitting shelves later this year.
Weighing only 990g and measuring up at 14.9mm thin, it should be dead easy to fit this in almost any laptop bag, with the aforementioned 15-inch screen set to offer a Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels).
The 15-inch model of the Swift 5 will be available to buy in Europe this November at a base price of €1099, and in America on January 2019 from $1099. The 14-inch model, meanwhile, will be made available sooner – the European launch is pegged for this September with a starting price of €999.
Both 13.3-inch and 14-inch models will be available, and you’ll have the option to grab the Swift 3 come with integrated 4G LTE connectivity, so you carry on browsing the web when you’ve left the comfort of your Wi-Fi-connected home. That should make it an ideal Netflix companion, with the 1920 x 1080 pixel display sounding perfectly serviceable on paper.
Bear in mind, though, that using 4G will deplete the Swift 38217;s battery rather quickly, so you’ll want to have it hooked up to Wi-Fi to reach Acer’s claimed 13-hour battery life. The 8th-gen Intel Core processors and 8GB RAM should ensure the Swift 3 ticks along smoothly, too.
