Acer unveils new 'thinnest laptop in the world'

Acer unveils new 'thinnest laptop in the world'

The fight to keep the "World's Thinnest Laptop" crown never stops, but Acer's new Swift 7 isn't just counting on its super-skinny design to set itself apart, throwing in dedicated cellular connectivity to sweeten the deal. There's also 10 hours of battery; the laptop also comes with 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD drive. With these features, and its all-black aluminum body, the system is aimed at professional users seeking portability.

The Acer Swift 7 will be available in the United Kingdom from April 2018, with prices starting at £1,599. The newest model features the AMD Radeon RX560 graphics and AMD Ryzen mobile processors.

Additionally, the newest Nitro 5 has faster RAM and includes Nitro Sense GPU/CPU monitoring software for real-time GPU and CPU metrics. The Nitro 5 will be available in the market for $799 ( or approx Rs 50,628). Acer has also shrunk down the display from a 15.6-inch panel to a 14-inch 1080p display for a smaller overall form factor, although true to the "Spin" name, it still rotates around to convert into a tablet. The Spin 3 is expected to launch in North America in February starting at $599. "The new Acer "Chromebook 11" will deliver strong performance with all the benefits of Chrome OS at an excellent value", said James Lin, General Manager, Commercial and Detachable Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. The very portable fanless laptop can be ordered with a touch or non-touch display, and provides up to 10 hours of battery life. It will be available in April starting at $249. The company has also revealed the USA availability for its previously-announced Switch 7 Black Edition and Predator Orion 9000 Series.

Acer has confirmed today that the Switch 7 Black Edition is going to be released in the United States this month with prices starting at $1,699. The Orion 9000 Series is a powerful gaming desktop that can be outfitted with top-end components like an Intel Core i9 Extreme Edition processor and dual Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards.

Problem is, however, it's about £650 more for the pleasure, coming in with a mighty £1,599 starting price.
