Acer Introduce The Nitro 5 - Designed With Casual Gamers In Mind

The announcement of the upgraded Swift 7 Ultrabook comes in time as CES 2018, a world gathering for businesses of consumer technologies.

Acer has debuted three new laptops just before the official commencement of CES 2018 conference at Las Vegas, US.

We were slightly taken aback by the price of the Swift 7, which stats at $1,699, which is around £1,250m though we'd buy a hat and eat it if Acer made a decision to do such a direct price exchange; we reckon the Swift 7 will start at around the £1,400 price mark.

Unlike the Swift 7 range, the Acer Spin 3 debuts as an all-day productivity and entertainment notebook - offering a laptop, tablet, display, and a space-saving tent mode through its 360-degree dual-torque hinge design.

The display, which maintains its 1080p resolution, gains a Gorilla Glass-coated touch surface and, at 14-inches, is now larger than its 13.3-inch predecessor.

So if you're looking to buy the thinnest laptop in the world, you should know there's a new candidate in town that will be available in U.S. stores around March. Despite measuring thinner than the previous model, the Swift 7 laptop packs a heavier Intel Core i7 7-gen processor along with full Windows 10 OS. Besides, it is claimed to deliver up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge.

Two plays later, Brees hit former Panther Ginn with the 80-yard touchdown pass that gave New Orleans a 7-0 lead after one quarter. Newton missed a play, the Panthers punted, and then Newton returned on the team's next possession.

Acer's Swift 7 runs on Windows 10 and also highlights how PC makers are looking to LTE for an always-connected approach. It features two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, and comes in both touchscreen and non-touchscreen versions. It has 8 GB of LPDDR3 RAM to keep the multitasking responsive.

Also known by its SF714-51T model, the laptop's unibody aluminum chassis is now features 8.98 mm profile.

The laptop starts at $1,699 and it's expected to be available from March.

Acer's Jerry Kao says that the company is "extremely proud" of creating the world's thinnest laptop.

Acer advertised the 8.98 mm-thin Swift 7 as the "world's thinnest laptop". The laptop carries a 14-inch Full HD display, Intel's 8th-generation Core processor, up to 12 hours of battery life, and two front-facing speakers. The Nitro 5 and Chromebook 11 will be available for $799 (Rs 50,500 approx) and $249 (Rs 15,800) respectively. Powering the laptop is an Intel Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of eMMC storage.

The Chromebook 11 will be available from £259 and will come to the United Kingdom in March 2018.
