Among 4 New Laptops, Acer Introduces World's Thinnest Laptop

Among 4 New Laptops, Acer Introduces World's Thinnest Laptop

At just 8.98 mm thin, the new Swift 7 regains the title of the world's thinnest, now the only question is, for how long.

That Intel processor is the 7th rather than 8th generation, too, which seems an oddity when considering the Swift 7's £1,599 starting price.

The laptop also features the Acer Color Intelligence and Corning Gorilla Glass protected NBT touchscreen and touchpad.

Acer claims that the Swift 7 will last up to 12 hours on a charge.

Finally, Acer updated their affordable Nitro 5 gaming laptop to feature AMD Radeon's RX560 graphics card and a host of new AMD Ryzen mobile processors.


The Spin 3 is an alternative to the Spin 7, a cheaper 14-inch system (previously 15.6 inches) with a 360-degree rotating display. You can configure up to 32GB of RAM and 512GB SSD storage.

The Acer Chromebook 11 has an 11.6-inch display with the resolution of 1366x768 pixels.

Finally, Acer has introduced its new Chromebook 11 line, with a portable design and battery life of up to 10 hours. Acer didn't provide a battery life expectation, so don't expect anything fantastic. Both have 11.6in IPS displays, stereo speakers and a pair of USB-Type C ports. The WASD keys can be outlined with brighter backlighting and CPU and GPU temps can be monitored with NitroSense software though, so there's that (heh). To find out about availability, product specifications and prices in specific markets, please contact your nearest Acer office or retailer via www.acer.com. The previous three generation notebooks have been updated this year. This 11.6-incher with 1366 x 768 resolution will set you back $249 starting April in North America and €249 starting March in EMEA.

To power the latest games and virtual reality apps easily, and allowing the ability to support up to an 8K UHD monitor, the Acer Predator Orion 9000 series can be configured with up to a cutting-edge Intel® Core™ i9 Extreme Edition 18-core processor with 18 cores and 36 threads, up to 128 GB quad-channel DDR4 memory and dual NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080Ti cards in SLI. Connectivity options include USB Type-C and HDMI 2.0 ports, and 802.11ac WiFi with 2x2 MIMO support. The device will also fully support Google Play when it launches. Last year's Swift 7 launched in the United States at USD999 (around RM3,988) and retailed for RM4,999 here in Malaysia. The company is also in plans to make the Acer Predator Orion 9000 series available in the United States market at $1,999 (around Rs. 12,6,400).
