Meet the world's thinnest laptop, for now

Acer uses its new generation of processors To create a spectacular computer, just before the rest of the competition

In what constitutes a complete contrast to the terrifying Predator 21X, presents to us Also its new Swift 7 mobile - which manages to work around And get the title (coveted?) For the thinnest computer in the entire market, with a thickness of only 9.98 millimeters at the thickest point that enters the territory that was reserved previously for tablets and smartphones only.

The Swift 7 is made of aluminum casing that combines black in the exterior with a gilded interior - something similar To Spectre 13, which had the title of the thinnest laptop only a few months ago - With a standard 13.3-inch non-touch interface screen and 1080p resolution protected by Gorilla Glass cladding, the dual-core Core i5-7Y54 chip from Kaby Lake's Newly announced, DDR3L RAM of 8GB, drive Of 256GB, a system 10 in the Home version and an 40-watts battery that should be sufficient for my life Relatively handsome for up to nine hours.

Thin, light and stylish

The Swift 7 is also characterized by a minimum weight of 1.1 kilograms (although we have already seen Weighing less than a single kilogram, including larger ones with an 15-inch screen), 802.11ac standard Wi-Fi connectivity with an 2 × 2 antenna array, a stereo pair of speakers, an impressively large touch pad that also includes a built-in fingerprint scanner - and a pair of connectors The 3.1 Type C is only slightly thicker than the chassis itself and will be used both for charging the laptop and for transmitting the information and viewing it to and from it.

It's hard to describe this tiny profile in words - but will it come at the expense of performance?

With expected availability this October and with the US $ 1,000 price tag (no tax added) or Euro 1,300 (including taxes) in Europe, the Swift 7 can be seen as a very interesting option for anyone looking for the most compact and portable computer money can buy these days These - but it seems to be definitely free from limitations.

Its Core i5 processor may confuse, but it is actually an ultra-economical, ultra-efficient 5-powered ultra-thin Core XXUMX processor that has been branded in the new Kaby Lake generation, probably because Intel wants to reduce the stigma of these models as weak and inferior, Core i popular and popular. The final performance of the Swift 4.5 will depend significantly on the cooling solution (the passive and the passive) that Acer chose to implement, for a practical thermal envelope of only 7 watts, 3.5 watts or 4.5 watts According to manufacturer's definitions. We already know that של It is directly dependent on the quality and efficiency of its cooling - but in this case we do not seem to know what we will actually get until the first reviews are received that shed light on the performance and capabilities beyond what is written 'on paper'.

In addition, choosing Apple style to include just a pair of USB Type C connections as a solution for all user requirements is quite problematic, and will require the use of dedicated adapters or cables in most cases - even for any average USB drive that still has the large, old Type-A connector. Also the decision to offer only 256GB of storage and mostly only 8GB of memory It is strange given the ever-increasing demand and the processor's ability to support larger volumes.

A massive touchpad is probably a great addition, but why are there only a pair of Type C connectors?

Isser undoubtedly came here for an admirable technological achievement and proved that she has the right engineering capabilities - but only time will tell us whether this is really a device to consider as your next purchase, or just something to impress and move on to.

  1. Intel released i3 processors when they first became PC. It then released a slower version (about 20-30%) for laptops but still continued to brand the i3 as usual. It did not specify or at least not wavy (you should try hard and look for) the work that i3 for a laptop is much slower than i3 for PC when switching i3 in front of most users is a definite marker of speed. They are now releasing a new i3 which is even slower than the m version and has even been branded as i3. It's a classic scam and I don't understand how no one picked up the glove for a class action lawsuit. The fact is that to this day the vast majority of regular users are sure that i3 for PC is exactly the same speed as i3 for a laptop and so will the new processor, which is even slower ...

  2. This computer turned around for a student. He looks good, fast and easy. Would make a good impression.
