Acer Reveals World’s Thinnest Notebook, 2018 Lineup

Acer’s coming out swinging for the fences in 2018, Swift 7, which is just 0.35 inch thin measurements. The $1699 14 – inch Laptop is becoming more portable because of the 4G LTE connection, and is expected to be in March.

Gamers looking to rock for less than $800 will be interested in the Nitro 5 (starting price $799), which packs AMD’s Ryzen mobile processors and the Radeon RX560 GPU. Acer’s also upgraded the memory from previous versions, giving this machine DDR4 RAM.

The rest of Acer’s new models include a new Chromebook with lots of ports and a new 2-in-1 with Intel’s 8th Gen Core CPUs.

Acer’s insanely-thin Swift 7 looks to be the thinnest laptop ever, and with its built-in LTE connectivity and 10 hours of Acer as07b71 laptop battery life, this machine begs to be taken out for day-trips. Its Gorilla Glass touch screen makes for greater durability on those outings.

The blue Acer Chromebook 11 is expected to last up to 10 hours and feature either a touch or non-touch display. But since it will fully support Android apps from the Google Play store at launch, you probably want the touch-screen version, since Android apps were made to be tapped.

Acer’s updated its 2-in-1 with 8th Gen Intel Core CPUs, and moved from a 15.6-inch design to a 14-inch look. Fortunately, this model still has a Full-HD display, and Acer’s saying it lasts for 12 hours on a single charge.

Starting Price: $599

Release: February 2018

CPU: 8th Gen Intel Core

Display: 14-inch, FHD, IPS touchscreen

Estimated Battery Life: 12 hours

The Acer Nitro 5 looks to make gaming slightly more affordable, offering AMD’s Ryzen mobile CPU and Radeon RX560 GPU, with a starting price under $800. It packs that power into a tried-and-true black-and-red design with a laser-texture-etched lid.
