CES 2018: Acer's rolls out wafer thin Switch 7

All four laptops will be showcased at CES 2018.

Acer used its pre-CES 2018 event to reveal its latest PCs and related hardware. The Windows 10-powered Swift 7 will be made available in the market from March at a price of $1,699 (or approx Rs 107,606). For this comparison, Acer has considered the clamshell laptop designs in the market with macOS and Windows.

The ultrabook has also upgraded its 13.3-inch screen to 14-inch, although still with a 1080p resolution.

Oh boy. Acer threw down the gauntlet in 2016 when they snatched the crown of world's thinnest laptop right out of HP's hands. The ultra-thin laptop sports a seventh-generation Intel Core-i7 processor, though it would have been nice if Acer equipped it with the latest eight-gen Core-i7 processor. The optimised chipset offers up to 10 hours of battery. And the features include three full-sized USB ports, 1 x USB Type-C port, 1 x headset jack, 1 x HDMI with connectivity offered by dual Gigabit Ethernet ports and support for 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth. The Acer Nitro 5 features a 15.6-inch display and houses a Ryzen mobile processor with Radeon TX560 graphics, paired with 32GB of RAM and up to 512MB of SSD storage. It has fingerprint reader which allows password-free and more secure sign-in through Windows Hello. But being thinner isn't the only upgrade Acer packed into this brand new chassis, the laptop also gets a decent upgrade in specs.

Finally, Acer is also updating its line of Chromebooks with the new Chromebook 11.

"We're extremely proud to make the world's thinnest laptop even thinner with the new Swift 7", said Jerry Kao, President of IT Products Business of Acer Inc, in a press release. Storage duties are handled by an SSD up to 512 GB. The device is an ultraportable always-connected (LTE support) device that's powered by an Intel Core i7 processor and features what Acer are calling "all-day battery life".

The laptop carries a 14-inch Full HD display, Intel's 8th-generation Core processor, up to 12 hours of battery life, and two front-facing speakers.
