Acer announced the incredibly thin and light Swift 7 (SF714-52T) with a new premium chassis that liberates the display. Honoree of a CES 2019 Innovation Award, its ultra-narrow bezels make it virtually borderless, giving the 14-inch Swift 7 an impressive 92 percent screen-to-body ratio. Weighing at just 890 grams, it is designed for portability and style without sacrificing performance with the latest 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-8500Y processor to deliver top-notch performance for web browsing, productivity with presentations and spreadsheets, and even using compute intensive creator tools while enabling a fanless design. With up to 512GB of fast PCIe SSD storage, a large amount of files can be stored and quickly accessed, and with up to 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM, customers can multitask smoothly. And with 10 hours1 of battery life, customers can use their Swift 7 well into the evening.
Customers can accomplish more using the two USB Type-C ports supporting Thunderbolt™ 3 for high bandwidth speeds up to 40 Gbps while also delivering system power and connecting to any display, as well as USB 3.1 Gen 2. The DisplayPort 1.2 provides fast data transfers at up to 10 Gbps and supports high resolution external displays and speedy charging of external devices. Staying connected with the Acer Swift 7 is reliable and super-fast with Intel Wireless-AC delivering Wi-Fi 5 capable of Gigabit speed and featuring 2×2 MU-MIMO technology. Peripherals can also be connected via Bluetooth 5.0, while the combo headphone and speaker jack ensures clear and crisp audio.
“The Acer Swift 7 strikes a balance between art and technology, and in doing so pushes ultra-portable PC design to new territories” said Jerry Hou, General Manager, Consumer Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. “With a striking screen-to-body ratio of an incredible 92 percent, Acer customers can stay more productive with a compact, thinner and lighter notebook that feels ‘barely there’ while carrying it around through the day and during business travel.”
“We designed the latest 8th Gen Intel Core processors to deliver a complete platform with the performance to enable rich user experiences and the power efficiency to extend battery life, all in a fanless design” said Chris Walker, Vice President of Client Computing at Intel. “It is exciting to collaborate with Acer on the innovation displayed on the new Acer Swift 7.”
