Acer has launched a lot of new products at the IFA 2016 but there are four laptops out of these announcements that I think you should know about. The new Swift series of laptops from Acer run on Windows 10. The new Swift series of laptops from Acer have 4 main products i.e. Swift 7, Swift 5, Swift 3 and the Swift 1.
Acer Swift Series
Acer Swift 7
The Swift 7 is a laptop that is just 1cm in thickness which makes this much thinner than the HP Spectre laptop which was considered to be the thinnest laptop in existence. The Acer Swift 7 weighs just 1.1KG and comes with a 13.3-inch full HD display. The display on the Swift 7 has a very small bezel around it and it is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. As per Acer, the laptop provides up to 9 hours of battery life on a single charge. Take a look at the specifications below.
Acer Swift 7 Specifications
- 13.3-inch Full HD IPS panel

Now it is a valid question to ask considering the fact that this laptop is just 1cm thick that it bend or not. Well, even though the laptop is thin, it is quite solid at the same time so don’t worry, your Swift 7 won’t bend.
