Acer Swift 7 – An Ultrathin Laptop with a Stylish Design
Acer just recently launched two new products at the IFA 2016. One is the Spin 7, the company’s 2-in-1 line. The other product Swift 7 is the flagship of the second line. Swift 7 is a stylish and thin laptop with a 7th Generation Intel Core processor, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB of solid state drive, and a 1080p display with Gorilla Glass finish.
The Swift 7 is an insanely thin 13-inch laptop, with a catchy gold and black finish and an extra wide touchpad. Acer has paired the metallic gold look with a matte black display lid which also goes along well with the black display bezels. The large touchpad has plenty of room for multi-touch gestures.
At 9.98mm the Acer Swift 7 is the thinnest laptop you’ve ever laid your eyes on. It will definitely remind you of the HP Spectre. The only difference is that Spectre had a coy black and copper colouring, while the Swift 7 has a bold black and gold color. The golden Acer logo sits on the lid, with an equally golden hinge below. The Chiclet-style keyboard has a lovely black color. The touchpad is probably the most striking feature of this latest laptop.
Acer’s this laptop has a 13.3-inch, 1920×1080 display that shows the most vivid colors. The details on the display are pretty sharp. Swift 7’s 105 percent color reproduction on the sRGD gamut is the reason behind the vibrant display. It’s display brightness reaches the 319 nits, topping the 301 nit category average. Pictures and videos are sure to look clean and crisp on the 13.3 inches full HD display with IPS technology.
