PC vendor claims ‘world’s first’ laptop to measure less than 1 cm thin
PC maker Acer has unveiled its new Swift series of ultra-thin and lightweight notebook PCs. Comprised of four lines, namely the Swift 7, Swift 5, Swift 3 and Swift 1, the new ultra-thin models feature Windows 10 and include something for every budget and lifestyle.
"We are thrilled to announce the new Swift series, a complete ultra-thin laptop lineup with something for everyone," said Jerry Hou, general manager, Consumer Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. "Front and centre is the flagship Swift 7 with an all-aluminum chassis that's less than one centimeter thin, while still packing in performance and stamina for all-day productivity."
"The new seventh generation Intel Core processors set a new bar for performance and efficiency enabling amazingly fast, responsive designs that are also incredibly thin and light," said Chris Walker, vice president of the Client Computing Group and general manager of Mobility Client Platforms, Intel Corp. "Intel and Acer's strong collaboration is on full display with the new Swift series which delivers great performance in a beautiful package."
Peter Han, vice president of Worldwide OEM Marketing, Microsoft Corp, said: "Acer's new Swift series notebooks give customers looking for a Windows 10 laptop a variety of options to align with what they need most."
Han added that: "Whether looking for a high-end, performance-driven machine, a solidly-built value-priced device, or something in between, the Swift notebooks are designed to bring to life Windows 10 features to maximize entertainment, or productivity."
The Swift 7 weighs in at just 1.1 kgs and measures a mere 0.39 inches (9.98 mm) thin, making it the world's first laptop to measure less than 1 cm thin. Its black-and-gold dual tone design brings a touch of elegance to its durable all-aluminum uni-body, while tough Corning Gorilla Glass adds superior scratch resistance to the 13.3-inch Full HD IPS display with a micro-bezel. With up to 9 hours of battery life, it is the perfect notebook for those on the go.
Small and speedy, top-of-the-line performance is delivered through a 7th generation Intel Core i5 processor, fast 256GB SSD and up to 8GB of memory.
