Acer debuts all-new Swift 7 notebook
Acer has announced the incredibly thin and light Swift 7 with a new premium chassis. Recipient of a CES 2019 Innovation Award, it sports narrow bezels and a 92% screen-to-body ratio. This lightweight notebook is powered by Windows 10.
“The Acer Swift 7 strikes a balance between art and technology, and in doing so pushes ultra-portable PC design to new territories” said Jerry Hou, General Manager, Consumer Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. “With a striking screen-to-body ratio of an incredible 92 percent, Acer customers can stay more productive with a compact, thinner and lighter notebook that feels ‘barely there’ while carrying it around through the day and during business travel.”
The Swift 7 has a four-side narrow bezel design with bezels measuring 2.57 mm. It is made with magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum alloys. The 14-inch Full HD 1920×1080 touch display with IPS technology allows smooth touch interactions and presents vibrant and crystal-clear images. Plus, it’s extra durable due to a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 6.
The Swift 7 is powered by the latest 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8500Y processor with up to 512GB of fast PCIe SSD storage and up to 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM. The new Swift 7 features a push-to-open camera for webchats and video recording.
“We designed the latest 8th Gen Intel Core processors to deliver a complete platform with the performance to enable rich user experiences and the power efficiency to extend battery life, all in a fanless design” said Chris Walker, Vice President of Client Computing at Intel. “It is exciting to collaborate with Acer on the innovation displayed on the new Acer Swift 7.”
