Acer unveils ultra-thin Swift notebooks

BERLIN, September 4, 2016

Acer today unveiled its new Swift series of ultra-thin and lightweight notebook PCs at its global press conference at IFA Berlin.

Comprising 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.

“Front and center 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 7th 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.”  

“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.” said Peter Han, vice president of Worldwide OEM Marketing, Microsoft Corp. “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 2.48 pounds (1.1 kg) and measures a mere 0.39 inches (9.98 mm) thick, making it the world’s first laptop to measure less than 1 cm in thickness. 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, the company said.

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.  The latest wireless technology (2x2 802.11ac with MU-MIMO) delivers reliable and up to three times faster connections, while dual USB 3.1 Type-C ports are included for quick data transfer, connection to an external display, and to charge the notebook. An HD webcam with HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging support provides clear, bright and detailed images.

Swift 5 – high-end features
Just 0.57 inches (14.58 mm) in height and weighing 3 pounds (1.36 kg), the Swift 5 manages to fit a 14-inch Full HD IPS display into a 13-inch frame. Available in Pearl White with gold trimming or Obsidian Black with silver trimming, it cuts an impressive figure combining brushed metal surfaces and diamond cut accents.

Swift 3
Just 0.7 inches (17.95 mm) in height and weighing 3.3 pounds (1.5 kg), the Swift 3’s svelte and lightweight design features a sturdy brushed aluminum chassis. It offers up to 12 hours of battery life and a collection of indispensable features for great productivity, mobility and security.

The Swift 3 models pair a 14-inch HD or Full HD IPS anti-glare display with 6th or 7th Generation Intel Core processors, fast 512GB SSDs, up to 8GB memory and 2x2 MU-MIMO 802.11ac wireless technology for fast and reliable internet connectivity.

Swift 1 – Light and Budget-Friendly  
Lightweight and priced right for a student or others on a budget, the Swift 1 is highly portable and includes the essentials, making them a great value. Just 0.7 inches in height (17.9 mm) and weighing 3.5 pounds (1.6 kgs), the cover features a brushed-metal-like finish that minimises fingerprints and scratches, while the diamond-cut edges around the power button and touchpad provide nice design touches. With up to 12 hours of battery life, they will last a student an entire school day, with a few extra hours to spare for late night studying or web-surfing. - TradeArabia News Service
