Acer has announced a new version of its sleek Swift 7 Ultrabook, as CES 2018 gets underway in Las Vegas. For this comparison, Acer has considered the clamshell laptop designs in the market with macOS and Windows. Its touchscreen has increased from 13.3-inches to 14-inches, but it's still only 1080p.
The screen nearly floats above the keyboard, with a noticeable gap between the two - you'll either love it or hate it, but those hinges do keep things thin.
Apart from the thinness, the Swift 7 has integrated 4G LTE connectivity which is a rare feature in the laptops. "Acer says the new model will be only 0.7" thick (18.2 mm) and will provide up to 10 hours of battery life.
The Swift 7, however, has the combination of an easy-to-carry laptop and the 4G LTE connectivity, which is still now very rare in the market. It now includes a Radeon RX560, the latest Ryzen mobile processors, DDR4 RAM that can be configured up to 32GB, and an SSD that goes up to 512GB. The notebook comes with a fingerprint reader and supports face detection through Windows Hello.More news: Big Little Lies Completely Destroyed At The 2018 Golden Globes
