Acer Swift 7 gets thinner, beefs adult battery life

Over during CES 2018, Acer has suggested an even thinner Swift 7 Ultrabook, as good as announcing a accessibility of a new spin on a Switch 7.

The Swift 7 was already impossibly skinny and light, though Acer has slimmed it down from only over 10mm to an unusually trim 8.98mm. The ultra slim Ultrabook will hang with final era Kaby Lake Core i7 processor, though a Full HD arrangement has increasing in distance from 13.3-inch to 14-inch. This time around a arrangement is also a touchscreen propitious with a Corning Gorilla Glass facade.

Acer has also brought built-in 4G LTE connectivity to a notebook, with a receiver orderly integrated into a all-black aluminum unibody chassis, assisting to safeguard a improved vigilance for your mobile broadband (although speeds will be contingent on internal vigilance strength, of course).

The new Swift 7 delivers a claimed battery life of adult to 10 hours, somewhat some-more than a prototype that ran for an estimated 9 hours. In a review, we found longevity to be one of a laptop’s diseased spots, so any additional pep on this front is apparently welcome.

Hopefully, this will interpret to even improved formula in a possess battery benchmarks when we indeed get to play with a rested model. Fingers crossed and all that.

Expect a new Acer Swift 7 to emerge in April, with a cost starting during $1,699 (around £1,250, AU$2,160). Compared to a predecessor, this new indication is extremely some-more expensive.

Switch 7 Black Edition

You might remember that Acer denounced a Switch 7 Black Edition during IFA 2017 final September, and we got to go hands-on with a hybrid, anticipating it to be an considerable square of tech, braggadocio a dissimilar GPU (GeForce MX 150) and glass cooling.

The news from CES is that this 2-in-1 is now on sale in a US with a cost starting during $1,699 (around £1,250, AU$2,160). Again, that’s no tiny outlay, and we’ll positively weigh a value tender of this hybrid in a full review.
